MONO POWER AMPLIFIER
The thesis Ω (omega) monobloc power amplifier is an RC-coupled device in true Heed fashion that drives loudspeakers in a similar way to valve power amplifiers, but without their inherent problems related to the vacuum tube. DesOmega te certain topological similarities to its valve counterparts, the Thesis Ω is best described as a quintessentially solid-state power amp that successfully gets around the often sterile, lifeless sound of most solid-state devices. We believe that connecting amplifiers to speakers by RC- instead of the prevalent DC-coupling results in a much more natural, less "cropped" decay of tones. Freed from all containments, we could achieve a no-compromise implementation of the Transcap topology in the Thesis Ω.
With its very generously sized power supply, unlike valve amplifiers, it is also extremely stable even into the most difficult loads – continuous power delivery up to 160W or capability of driving loads down to 1.6 Ohm speak for themselves. It is capable of driving all kind of sensible speakers.
In short, the thesis Ω power amplifier eOmega tomises an almost alchemical synergy of solid-state stability and the finesse and "live" magic usually achieved only by 300B triodes in valve amplification.
It is far from us to lose you in technical terms. It is not our aim to teach you our profession or to provide you with numbers that are merely different from other devices. Electronic specifications and "correctness" are just one aspect and not enough to create perfect music reproduction alone.
Even so we ought to enlighten you about some of the specialties that make Heed products distinctive and stand out from the crowd. Naturally it is impossible to make a musical impression by words alone.
