Soulution's New 511 Stereo Amplifier

The Swiss manufacturer Soulution introduced the $32,000, 75-lb Soulution 511 stereo amplifier at CES 2017. Rated conservatively at 150Wpc into 8 ohms, it delivers 280Wpc into 4 ohms and 560Wpc into 2 ohms. The 511 can be switched to a bridged configuration for power ratings of 560W, 1120W, and 2000W, respectively. In addition, the amplifier is capable of sustaining a current draw of 60 amperes at 36 volts, for an impulse rating of 6000W mono. Its damping factor is listed as 10,000 at 100kHz. Distortion (0.004%) and signal-to-noise ratio (>107dB) measurements at 1kHz are excellent, due in part to the reducing of interfaces and cables used in its construction. At the show, Soulution used two 511 amplifiers in bridged mode to drive Magico S7 M-Coat White loudspeakers ($64,000/pair).
