Class A Buffer - $6000 (if no setup required)
The Class A Buffer is the second half of MAD No. 6. It allows MAD No. 6 or any preamplifier with a gain of 15 or more to drive a pair of speakers. The Class A Buffer changes the amplification game shifting the focus from the amplifier to the preamplifier.
In keeping with the styling of MAD No.6, the Class A buffer shares the same chassis design and powder coated stainless steel chassis. In place of the lighted swan, the Buffer utilizes a downward facing LED. This design allows the Buffer to match up nicely to MAD No.6.
In order to minimize heat build up, the Buffer comes in a 15 watt and 25 watt version. The circuitry in both versions is the same. The difference is the power supply. If the speaker sensitivity is greater than 93dB, then the 15 watt version allows the Buffer to work harder and run cooler, while providing all the drive required for the speakers. If needs change, send the Buffer back to Swan Song Audio and at no charge the unit will be updated to handle 25 watts.
