Friedrich Schäfer made clear it clear that he does not regard the Emitter II as an integrated amplifier—although the instruction manual calls it just that, and although it includes a volume control and input switching. Instead, he told me, it’s a 250Wpc or 500Wpc (into 8 or 4 ohms, respectively) multi-input power amplifier with relay-based switching facilities and volume control.
But this behemoth of an amplifier combo, all 110kgs of it, is just that, and integrated, however it uses substantial outboard power supplies and a separate battery supply, meaning this amp is not connected to the mains, meaning it’s not affected by any problems you have on your power lines. This model also has the upgraded Gold tracks on the circuit board.
This is an assured amplifier, with iron like grip, but finesse, from the quietest passages, to full on crescendo, this amplifier will drive most speakers with little sweat.
Was an expensive amplifier when new, but now you have a chance to own it for yourself at a huge saving.
