All of the BSC amplifiers exemplify the meaning of power and grace. Designed to integrate with virtually any loudspeaker, BSC amplifiers extract all of the texture, low-level detail and dynamic contrast your speaker can deliver. BSC products not only redefine the standard in their respective category but meet or exceed the performance of products costing 3 and 4 times more.
The BSC-100m 100 watt class A monaural power amplifier represents a delicate blend of finesse and power. Based around a 1,368 VA custom toroidal transformer and over 100,000 microfarads of filter capacitance, the ability to deliver continuous high power output is built into this amplifier. We believe an amplifier power supply should be able to deliver instantaneous power to a loudspeaker under virtually any load condition. The BSC-100m amplifier can double its 8 ohm rated output power into 1 ohm producing 800 watts continuously with maximum continuous output of almost 1200 watts. The BSC-100m has two transformers and three power supplies insuring power to the various sections of the amplifier is clean, quiet and abundant. The second transformer is designed for the soft turn-on and other low level circuits to allow the BSC-100m to be activated either by a 12 volt trigger source or the front panel switch. The BSC-100m draws less than 2 watts in standby mode.
The fully regulated driver section of the amplifier is based around a discrete, complimentary and DC coupled circuit. Signal paths are kept short and pass through the least amount of circuitry required to obtain the desired result. All the components meet or exceed military standards and are over specified to promote long life expectancy. All external signal connections between circuit boards and output connections are wired with reference level Transparent Audio cable.
The output stage is comprised of 4 massive internally mounted heat sink towers designed to cool the ten 230V, 17A, 200W output devices. The towers are optimized to disperse the heat of the 100 watts pure Class A power over a wide cross section reducing the overall chassis temperature. The BSC-100m also allows the user to quickly reduce the Class A bias on the amplifier to a half power approximately a 50W class A mode and further to a very low power ECO mode via the front panel rotary switch. Bias flexibility allows control over your power demand in different listening situations, but does not limit the amplifiers output power potential.
The BSC-100m has extensive protection circuitry that protects your investment against excessive DC voltage, extreme temperature, short circuit and over current conditions.
Paying attention to detail is a prerequisite for a BSC product. The BSC-100m boasts features like an attractive but tough aluminum powder coated chassis, custom machined hardcoat anodized front panel and decorative inserts, and solid brass machined gold plated output binding posts. BSC products have a 5 year warranty for parts and labor.
