Musicality? Simply put, the AGD Tempo di GaN stereo amplifier redefines that term in a significant way that begs for a high-quality front end as well as a loudspeaker capable of the speed and resolution this amp can deliver from top to bottom. I should mention deep bass in particular.
Impactful, organic sound from Class D via patented, industry leading GaN power technology.
The most advanced power stage in Hi-End Audio.
Gallium Nitride (GaN) MOSFET based power stage.
100W into 8ohms, doubling to 200W into 4ohms. Double those numbers for bridge mode!
40kOhm input impedance.
<-130db noise floor.
The AGD “TEMPO” Stereo Amplifier is the new addition to our state-of-the-art Hi-End Power Amplifiers family. TEMPO is our first compact Stereo Amplifier utilizing the same unique technology of Gallium Nitride Power-Stage design already in use with all its Hi-End AGD siblings.
The AGD “TEMPO” is rated 200+200W 4Ohm (100W+100W 8Ohm).
To achieve these performances in such compact CNC machined cabinet, we have designed a new GaN- based output power stage with a new mother board that contains the low noise power supply and all the analog buffer stages, small enough to enable these outstanding minimalistic footprint.
As for all AGD amps, the GaN-based power stage module utilized in the AGD TEMPO is fully upgradable to next generation modules using future generation of GaN devices with improved technology so to maintain the full value of the product in time.
The AGD TEMPO Stereo Amplifier uses the same fundamental technology pioneered with the AGD Vivace, the first Hi-End amplifier based on Gallium Nitride power MOSFET, the AGD THE AUDION and The AGD GRAN VIVACE.
Moreover, the new integrated GaN-Sound module design can operate also in bridge-mode delivering in this configuration twice the nominal stereo output power, so about 400W on 4ohm.
The NEW GaN-Power output stage, can efficiently switch at much higher slew rates than any silicon-based counterparts, and can deliver the most sublime sound thanks to their ideal “by the book” oscillations-free switching capabilities.
Single billet CNC-machined cabinet delivers the best solidity and compactness for audiophiles that are looking to get the superior sound with the most advanced technology on the market today and to “down-size” the footprint of regular amps at the same time.
Available in Silver, Black and mirror-polished finishing (the latter custom order only).
The AGD “TEMPO” back panel configuration is perfectly symmetrical and offers easy access to both the single ended and Balanced inputs connectors. The inputs (completely independent) are selectable via toggle switch.
A stereo-bridge switch enables the operation of the Stereo amplifier in bridge mode as 400W monoblock power stage (input signal via the right channel).
Two sets of super rugged solid copper binding posts, specially designed by AGD, and the connections for remote trigger input and output complete the back panel configuration.
