Lamm Industries M1.2 Reference monoblock amplifier Specifications
Description: Hybrid monoblock power amplifier with solid-state input stage, tubed driver stage, and MOSFET output stage, comprehensive short-circuit protection, and High Impedance/Low Impedance bias settings. Tube Complement: 6922. Inputs: balanced on XLR with pin 2 wired as hot; two single-ended on RCA connectors in parallel with pins 2 and 3 of XLR; 12V trigger. Outputs: Two sets of brass, gold plated binding posts. Rated output power, high impedance setting (minimum continuous sinewave power, 20Hz–20kHz): 110W into 8 ohms (20.4dBW) at <0.3% THD, 220W into 4 ohms (20.4dBW) at <0.5% THD, 400W into 2 ohms (20dBW) at <1% THD, 600W into 1 ohm (18.75dBW). Rated output power, low impedance setting (minimum continuous sinewave power, 20Hz–20kHz): 110W into 4 ohms (17.4dBW) at <0.5% THD, 220W into 2 ohms (17.4dBW) at <1% THD, 400W into 1 ohm (17dBW). Frequency Response: 4Hz–155kHz, +0/–3dB (high impedance setting at 110W into 8 ohms at rated line voltage: 4Hz–155kHz, +0/–3dB (low impedance setting at 110W into 4 ohms at rated line voltage). Voltage Gain: 39 ±2% or 31.8dB ±0.2dB. Signal/Noise Ratio (ref. 29.7V RMS into 8 ohms (110 W) 22Hz–22kHz): typically 89dB, A weighted typically 96dB. Input Sensitivity: 761mV RMS ±2% for 110W into 8 ohms (High impedance setting); 538mV RMS ±2% for 220W into 2 ohms (Low impedance setting). Input Impedance: 41k ohms shunted by 470pF. Output Impedance (20Hz–20kHz): typically 0.082 ohms +0.007/–0.002 ohm. Power consumption: Typically 330W at rated output at 8(4) ohms (class-A operation) and at idle.
