The 100.2SE is a 100 watts per channel stereo power amplifier with a class D output stage coupled to our custom Emerald Physics analog power supply. The 100.2SE is an upgraded version of our 100.2. It uses upgraded caps, resistors, hand would inductors and a much larger power supply.
The SE amp also replaces the polyester caps with polypropylene capacitors in 2 critical locations. The SE version uses Nichicon KS series 15000uf/50V caps. We upgrade the output filter inductors. We use a larger toroid core size, which allows us to use fewer turns of a fatter wire to achieve the same inductance as we now have.
This will decrease losses and improve the damping factor by 15-20% over the stock amp. We upgrade the power supply bridge rectifier to use low noise ultra-fast-recovery diodes. The Special Edition amp delivers 20% more current that the standard model.
The 100.2SE has both balanced and single ended inputs as well as a mono switch that allows you to start with a single 100wpc stereo amp and end up with a pair of 275 watt mono amps that do over 350 watt peaks. The 100.2SE is available in black or silver. (see the photos).
