REVO 160W Mono Power Amplifiers (Pair)
The features of REVO PA-160MR make it a unique power amplifier in the world of high-end audio, especially in relation to the important aspect of power supply design. For example, all of the feeding sources are electronically stabilised. The stabilised supply stages exhibit very high speed and great accuracy and produce higher values than are required by the most dynamic musical passages.
The power regulation system is totally outperforms even the best battery systems without having the inconveniences associated with battery supplies. Norma have simply succeeded in realising the “IDEAL SUPPLY”, avoiding any kind of noise or sound pollution from the outside environment. When hearing a REVO PA-160MR the listener gets an insight into the true potential of high-end audio design. Music breaks free from the chronic sonic artefacts (high noise floor) the listener has to traditionally endure and it is reproduced with a realism that has never been reached before. Power, dynamics, speed and transparency are matched to an absolute absence of listening fatigue and flowing musicality.
These features make it a perfect match with the Norma REVO SC-2 preamplifier which expresses the same sonic palette and free flowing sophistication. The Norma REVO PA-160MR can also be a perfect partner for other preamplifiers. For example, matched with the best tube preamps, the REVO PA-160MR can drive the speakers without introducing any harshness in the sound or listening fatigue often present in solid state amplifiers, allowing the true nature of the preamplifier to be experienced.
The internal workmanship is extraordinary and highlights a technical refinement that follows the same philosophy. The REVO PA-160MR uses proprietary circuitry, a regulated high-speed power supply, low noise architecture and is built with a careful selection of the best available materials. Norma audio pieces possess a sophistication of sound that is extraordinary at any price, embodying the designer Enrico Rossi’s technical talent and somehow infusing the culture and musical tradition of Cremona.
