The AGD Vivace Monoblock, is the most advanced Hi-End Power Amplifier in the market.
First to use the unique GaNTube™ technology with Gallium Nitride Power-Stage integrated in a Vacuum Tube.
The Gallium nitride components are the key to the
reference level performance of the AGD Vivace Monoblocks.
To achieve the highest-performance in audio reproduction, switching topologies must achieve nearly ideal switching waveforms, completely oscillation-free, to minimize distortion but most importantly, to preserve the harmonic content present in the original input signal and avoid the superimposition of any additional artifacts that alter the overall spectrum and the spatiality of the music reproduction. The Gallium Nitride power MOSFETS used in the GaNTubeTM power stage, simplifies this challenge through its ability to efficiently switch at much higher slew rates than any silicon based power MOSFET, with almost perfect (book-like) behavior and oscillation free switching.
With the seamless ability to drive any loudspeakers, 200W of power, 48,000µF of super audio grade capacitor reservoir, and the fastest slew-rate, the GaNTube™ Technology delivers the purest sonic experience.
Thanks to the Gallium-Nitride power stage intrinsic characteristics, the virtually stray-inductance free package, and a state of the art layout of the power module, the rise time and fall time of the Vivace's GaNTubeTM power stage are fully symmetrical at ~15ns. The output waveform at the switching node of the Gallium-Nitride power stage (pre-LC filter) is completely oscillation free even with a slew rate of 3700V/µs!
