Via Sant’agostino, 7/9
The IKARUS started it’s life as an “integrated” ampli fi er 35 years ago, then evolved into a concert monitoring ampli fi er . Alongside my [modi fi ed] 3 Stellavox SM8 Tape machines , it was constantly being re fi ned so I could easily hear what I was doing with microphone placement relative to the performers in a live concert. It’s “holographic” transparency, natural low-frequency “bloom”, ultra-high speed and low-noise, phase-perfect to well over 100kHz [the limit of the B&K 4135 1/4” capsule microphones] allows you to “be there”. Sporting our signature construction - sculptured massive CNC machined aluminium case , highest quality connectors, milspec double-sided oxygen-free copper PC Board, it uses a complete dual mono approach in power supplies with separate individual high speed recti fi er diodes with almost 40,000uF of fi ltering supplies. A high quality [Grayhill] rotary switch and potentiometer [ALPS Blue Velvet ] are the only components the signal encounters on its way to the ultra-high-speed ampli fi er circuits, allowing an incredible wealth of fi ne musical nuance to pass directly through to the loudspeaker.
