Please note:
The Master 3A is a 50W pure class A power amp, when it working , it can achieve 50 degree centigrade (Room temperature at 28 degree centigrade , please place them at the air flow area .
       The Master 3A has 90W at 8 ohms, even with 90W full power output , the THD+N  still  low to 0.18% at 1KHz and 0.004% at 20KHz, much lower than some power amp at 90W output but declare 200W max power .
       Usually the transistor built in power amp had been recommend the actual output power is around 1/5 to 1/3 of the max power output for keep the distortion as low , so the Master 3A can work as well as some  300W power amps .
       360W at 2 ohms each channel output . For the home audio system,  if the speaker with lower than 86DB sensitivity , the listen room usually around 20 square meters , if the listen room is larger , the speaker usually has higher than 88DB sensitivity , for these situations, 1W / each channel avg. power already can make the speaker for normal listen , even with the quite loud listen , 5W / each channel avg. power already can boost close 100DB on the 88DB sensitivity speaker . In the case the Master 3A still has 18x times spare power , and the pure class A design make it drive ability stronger than some same power even higher power amps, that is enough for the dynamic music playback .

DC blocker available for custom order:
       Because the product has the low impedance transformers design , if the power line (120V or 230V) has serious disturb , usually will has the low voltage DC in the power line, cause the transformers have the vibration and cause the noise.
       Even though in the same serious disturb in the power line , the high impedance transformers design can without vibration and noise , for example the R core, EI core or high impedance design O core transformers.
       But for the power amp, the high impedance transformer design has effect and degrade on sound dynamic, bass impact and control .
       Because the serious disturb power line is rare, based on the customers feedbacked, it has around 10% users meet with serious disturb  , so our power amps have not include the DC blocker . If customer has experience on vibration and noise in last power amp model, customer can custom order the DC blocker , it can kill 1.2V DC of the power line which is enough for most case.
        Price is USD40.
        Except custom order the DC blocker, customer also can buy the other brands external filter outlet which is built in DC blocker .

Fully balanced design, the gain stages and pre-driver stages work in class A, built with discrete analog stages without any OPA or coupling caps in the signal channels.
The output transistor stages have supper excellent linear, it sound like the pure class A design but without the high heat of the pure class A design .

The non negative feedback output drive stages had applied "Linear Fidelity" technology (Appling for patent):

       The Master 3 had applied the "Linear Fidelity" technology on the output drive stages . The output drive stages had not negative feedback but can keep the distortion low and steady, and had the ultra excellent  linear performance.
       In some lot power amp designs, the distortion had big different level on different power output level , even on one power output level, the full frequency band's distortion level had quite different , especial the low and high frequency .
      The blue line of below diagram show the distortion to frequency at 8 ohm 20W output of an well known power amp which worth around USD10k. 

       The below diagram show the most musical instrument frequency bands . The frequency band had cover from 20Hz to 4KHz .
       Different distortion must effect on the sound . For example, if playing piano music recorder, cause by the larger different distortion on the frequency band, you can hear the low frequency band like playing a brand A piano, the middle frequency band like playing a brand B piano, and the high frequency brand like a brand C, the music recorder like the different brand pianoes  playing and edited together.

         Below diagrams had show the distortion on the Master 3.
         The negative feedback applied, most is for reduce the distortion.
         Some people dislike the negative feedback design on the power amp, it reduce the distortion but make the listen unpleasure.
         The negative feedback power amp had good distortion result on emulational load measure, but while connect the real speakers, the electric potential of the speaker can through the feedback loop feed to the amp input stages cause the larger distortion.
         The negative feedback power amp even reduce the distortion , but the distortion increase while output power increase, this cause the larger dynamic music sound become harsh and fire to your face while listen the music.

         Usually the non negative feedback design has high distortion and difficult to control, especial the drive output stage which is work under strong current state.
         In the Master 3 design, the gain stages have applied the ACSS technology, it is the non negative feedback design but it's native advantage has very low distortion.
         The output drive stages had applied the " Linear Fidelity " technology .

         The overall design in the Master 3 is non negative feedback design.
          From the diagrams, the amp has quite flat and steady distortion on the frequency band from 20Hz to 5KHz, keep the same sounding character while playing the musical instruments .
          The distortion roll off a lot start at 5KHz, even lower than some amps which is depend on the negative feedback , it obvious show the supper linear performance of the amp.
         Compare the diagram, the upon diagram has 0.015% distortion at 20KHz , the below diagram has 0.0025% distortion on 20KHz, even full power output, the distortion on 20KHz still low to 0.004%.
        The ultra low distortion had not depend on the negative feedback, but depend on the ultra linear of the amp, so it's sound very transparency and analogue.
         On the different output power level , the amp has similar distortion level, while listen with softer and dynamic music,  it offer the same sound character without harsh .

Detail of the Current Conveyor Technology

           Master-3A is a true balanced design applying the newest ACSS design which can improved the XLR connection to sound as good as the ACSS connection. It seems complex , but in fact they are the most simple design the world has ever had , their a lot components to process the power supply. The Master-3A power amp only has a single " voltage" gain stage to process signals, but works in ACSS mode so in fact it is a current gain stage instead of voltage gain stage, whereas normal OPA chips already include two or three voltage gain stages. The simplest and shortest signal journey brings out the most neutral and least colored sound.
           Master-3A applies ultra-low distortion single stage ACSS amplifier and soldered directly on the motherboard . The gain stages and pre-driver stages working on class A .
           The output transistors stages working on high idle current state . The diamond cross output stage design can avoid "switch distortion" as good as the class A amp .
           The ACSS is a non-feedback technology made with fully discrete amplifiers. Most people know the global feedback design can offer better specs in test measurements, and non-feedback can't do well in test measurements but can offer better sound for the human's ears. Here is a conflict of the classic circuits. But the ACSS opens a new field, it can offer a least coloration sound which is more neutral with very low distortion and high linearity. So it can retain the dynamics, detail and neutral sound but not sound bright or harsh.
           All signal gain is in current, achieved by the unique, superb open-loop multiple output current mirror. Incomparably precise and ultra-low distortion in the gain signal is the result. The signal path is balanced throughout and all transistors work in class A mode.
           The ACSS parts use 4 groups of high-quality class A parallel connection PSU for dedicated DC supply. The class A parallel connection PSU has very high input impedance to avoid pulse from the PSU from affecting the gain stages, and low output impedance with very fast speed and high linear, so it is a very clean power supply.

          Massive use of high power parts and robust power supply guarantee vigorous current output that drives most existing loudspeakers.
         Master-3A applies four channels of  non-feedback output stages composed of 24 pieces of ON Semiconductor transistors , every piece has 15A/230W performance. The capacitance of the whole machine reaches as high as 140,000uF. Two transformers are used with total power of 1600W.
          Master-3A can input not only XLR balanced signal, but also the top grade ACSS current signal. No matter what kind of signal it is input, it is able to transfer it to current signal and amplify it.

          Master-3A uses heavyweight all aluminum alloy chassis to prevent the eddy current of transformers from interfering with the circuit board.  The interior is separated into 3 sections with aluminum boards for the best separation off the ACSS parts, the output stages and transformers. The AC power wire is shielded by a copper channel from back to front.

          Master-3A take care the vibration for the best sound playback. Each channels gain parts under a 5MM thick aluminum board, these aluminum board not only poise the heat between cool and hot amps, our workers care to install all transistors cling the aluminum board for avoid the vibration cause the sounding worst. From our testing, with the aluminum board bring clear detail reproduce and less harsh than take off the aluminum board .
           Uses all audiophile grade components, including DALE resistors, WIMA & SOLEN caps, custom order NOVER (UK brand) caps, all audiophile grade input (Neutrik) & output sockets (CMC) and gold IEC socket. The output transistors are 24 pieces of ON Semiconductor transistors.  Master-3A has all parts of four channels exact-matched before installation.
