This MIRROR IMAGE "Music That Breathes" Mono Power Amplifier features my unique fully symmetrical discrete power amplifier topology that achieves absolute Hi End performance.

The design features very high RFHP for reduced sensitivity to power supply quality and the output stage Class A/B commutation artefacts superimposed on the supply impedance, which causes the harshness and loss of spatial and timbral detail in lesser designs.

The pure analog amplifier avoids all the sonic problems associated with switching amplifiers, such as noise radiation, dynamic limiting, and distortion. Mirror Image proven linear circuit design allows you to hear your music exactly as it was recorded. The common source complementary FET output stage swings to within less then 250 mV of the supplies, maximizing power output for greater power efficiency than conventional designs, achieving 200W into 8ohms on unregulated +/-95V supplies.

The unique topology elimates the Vas stage which compromises conventional designs, instead employing positive feedback to achieve highly linear and very high first stage gain.
The input stage is a complementary differential stage driving a complementary 200MHz Class A/B buffer into the output FETs with only feedback lead compensation for excellent stability with all loads.
The amplifier is particularly suited to driving electrostatic loudspeakers,
with typically< 0.001% THD at 1000 ohms, and less than 0.027% mostly second harmonic at average listening levels into 8 ohms, with third harmonic taking over at higher power.
