28 Kilograms of Passion

The AMP I V2 represents an exemplary combination of pioneering Audionet technology with the company’s typically detail-obsessed scientific application and experience-based knowledge.

The sonic culture of the AMP I V2 is characterized by emotionality, sincerity and completeness. Performing quickly and with extremely fine resolution, it dazzles with its richness of detail. At the same time, the delivery is relaxed, devoid of the least hint of harshness or rigidity. Dynamic leaps are imparted with the necessary impact, without being merely loud. The bass is resolute and richly contoured. All this amounts to strikingly realistic holographic quality. And as a machine, the new Audionet discreetly stays in the background and creates a space within which the effect of the music can unfold – in all its artistry and emotionality.



The AMP I V2 is fitted with state of the art of Audionet’s ULA (Ultra-Linear-Amplifier) technology, which generated not only world-wide attention but won a number of awards. Originally invented for the purposes of medical engineering, this highly complex circuit topology provides cutting-edge measuring-technical results. Signal impurity remains below detectable levels even under the most strenuous of circumstances, whilst its outstanding feedback damping ensures that the loudspeakers perform at full capacity.


Cream of the Crop

Every sound-critical point in the AMP I V2 is fitted exclusively with the finest components procurable worldwide, many of which are custom-made for Audionet. For instance, the filter capacitors are manufactured according to our specifications by specialists in the USA; the bulk of our high audiograde electrolyte capacitors with a silk dielectric come from a Japanese audio manufacturer. We rely on mica capacitors, insert selected high voltage foil capacitors, deploy high-quality silver-gold alloys for our internal wiring and use the very best connector systems available from Furutech.



The AMP I V2 sets standards regarding linearity, reflux damping and loudspeaker control. It is magnetically and capacitatively optimized and coherently assembled as a dual-mono amplifier. This minimizes feedback from magnetic fields and electrical interference rays, thus eliminating nearly all reciprocal influences between the amplification channels as well as between the input, correction and output stages.

In order to optimize its high-frequency attributes, circuit size has been radically reduced. The remaining signal paths are kept to a minimum and are free of sound-critical components such as coils, chokes or relays. All in all, distortion is near-eliminated. The damping factor pushes the possibilities to the edge. The input stages are double-differential pre-stages with monolithic dual FETs separately powered by an 80 VA toroid-core transformer with separate windings for each channel. Their gain-bandwidth product exceeds one Gigahertz. Double bootstrapping decouples them from the power stages. Each output stage possesses four power MOSFETs.

Their bias current (0.4 A) is actively controlled. They are supplied by two 700 VA toroid-core transformers and four fast, impulse-stable high-current capacitors with filtering capacity totalling 188,000 µF. Distortion is compensated-for locally by a real-time correction stage. The voltages are smoothed as rapidly a possible by optimized discrete MOSFET regulators. A control unit with separate power supply monitors DC, HF, temperature and overload. If necessary, it disconnects the AMP I V2 from the mains supply, thus ensuring absolute operating safety.

Jazz recording legend Jim Merod in “Positive Feedback”, Issue 80, July 2015

“This unit renders audio signals the way Monet painted watercolors: degrees of blended harmonic beauty and understated sonic efflorescence-real tonal complexity in real ambient space without exaggeration. Doubtless this immense degree of textural audio delicacy and harmonic richness derives from point-to-point wiring with the shortest possible signal paths. Two 700VA toroid transformers along with impulse-stabilized high current capacitors frame its musical bloom and dynamic glory. The input stage and the power stage have separate power supplies. This is a Rolls Royce engine waiting to upgrade almost any high-end sound system with a Toyota price tag.

The large and small of its sonic footprint slowly stunned me into full comprehension. At this price point such breath-taking delivery of delicate and leading edge signal feeds-individual notes hung in absolute darkness; orchestral ferocity slammed with articulate force; vocal timbres were delineated exquisitely-seems an aberration until distrust of inexpensive gear gives way to recognition of a new level of performance at a profoundly modest price point. Because I adore stumbling upon audio equipment that delivers maximum value at any price level – a cost ratio in favor of less wealthy listeners – this Audionet unit began to shine with angelic wings in my appreciative gaze. It is more than an economically virtuous stereo amp. It is a solid candidate for Audio Product of the Year after considerable scrutiny.”

Salzburger Nachrichten Austria

“That impulsiveness and drive with simultaneous delicacy as with the latest power amplifier AMP I V2 is extraordinarilyy hard to get elsewhere.”
