Lovely looking bit of kit.

I had a yarn and a quiet beer last year with Anthony in the lounge/bar at Marc's show and he had his big amps on display and didn't want to take them back to Tassie and offered them at a  really keen price. And yes he was tired and worn out at the time. If I could of knocked a 0 off them I'd of grabbed them:love

But alas still way out of my league but I think Marc has them now in his system so perhaps they never went back over Bass Strait.

 

@Aussieamps  Anthony, what are it's dimensions and weight?

@Luc Hi Luc

Nice to here from you.

The Mono block amps now in Europe with one of the higher end loudspeaker manufactures.

http://www.soulsonicspeakers.com/

We will be getting a review from them as well as a review Matej from monoandstereo.com.

 

The dimensions of the NX050 amplifier are 300mm x 200mm x 100mm so nice and compact as a bookshelf style power amplifier.

If you have any doubt about the performance of Anthony's amps, just try and find one on the second hand market.

Then ask yourself why so many used 'high end' amps are on the market because the owner is 'upgrading'. Something doesn't add to me.

If you have LS50's or better, get it while you can. You will most likely never see another one, let alone one at this price.

:) There will be a S/H Holton 6 channel turn up on the market after it's been replaced with 3 x Holton 050 desk top Amplifiers. Had the 6 channel for 3 years now and hasn't missed a beat.

One of my 050's is in Hobart touring about and I'm enjoying listening to another one running a pair of Martin Logan CLS's, which is divine.

Another look at the uncompromising design, Holton 050, 100w x 2 with 225va Noratel Transformer, Revision 1 board during case fit out. picture depicts center mezzanine, inverted transformer mounting and just how compact this device really is.

Center mezzanine and surrounding heat sink effectively shields transformer EM from the amp module, makes for a super quiet amp in application

How does this Zero-Five-Five ('Supreme' version) compare to the NXV200L-R4 (advanced) kit?

Parts used, electrical performance, sonic qualities, etc?

@Aussieamps

Anthony would be able to help better than I can here, will have a go at answering your question.

 

Starting off with parts used, right through the amp, the amp driver circuits and FET's, power supply rectification, protection and capacitance against ripple are almost the same (identical) for the 2 types NXV200L-R4 and 050. One thing I can see which is very different is the solid state relays right at the speaker terminals for "never thump" start and stop of amp and ultimate fast shutdown in event of a fault for speaker protection, in saying that, more advanced power and speaker protection systems.

 

Biggests difference is the fact that the 050 has all this assembled on 1 circuit board and has a much more advanced case design/construction, with the absolute minimum of wiring which can lead to better fundamental character of the amplifier, like quieter operation due to better mechanical damping of the transformer buried down in the case behind plate aluminium. Better SNR due to superior module layout better built in shielding grids on the same circuit board among all components 

 

NXV200L is a DIY kit not completed so choice of case, transformer)s) and wiring methodology will have bearing on the final product as compared to the 050. One could suggest that the assembled/Holton custom case/all in one circuit on the more advanced (later model) 050 Supreme may be a little nicer all around to own.

 

Sonic qualities, well that depends on how the DIY kit went together and was housed.

OTOH the supreme 050 is a rather dynamic, live sounding power amplifier in a tiny case that is still undergoing some development with incremental output and output driver mods for perceived improvements. The platform and the design is proving popular as a few leak out of Manufacture and travel all over the world to their new owners who seem to be saying great things about them

 

Me personally, I like them and have a few here running 2 different speaker systems. Still also feeding back to Anthony on possible improvements on the design as a whole.

 

There seems to be a race on after more output from the 050 which I believe is not really the answer to better sonic performance, particularly when there are bigger more powerful amps available in the Holton line up

for me 100w x 2 into 8 ohms is far and away enough power for most speakers used in Family Rooms.

 

Hope that helps if no Anthony will correct anything or add

Hi @Suopermanni

 

There was only one available at the intro price and it was sold.

Which power level were you interested in?

Am interested in the 50W model. I don't think I need the 100W atm.

Do you make power amps only or is it possible for you to make an integrated version of this?

Hi Joe

 

Current I only make power amplifiers and I am planning to produce a pre-amp as well, but no plans at this time for an integrated amp.

Most people use DACs to directly drive the power amps these days.

I'd love to see some statistics to back up this claim - it doesn't stack up at all in my personal experience. In fact of all my HiFi mates, I can't think of one who goes direct from a DAC to a power amp.

 

Preamps with built-in DACs are a different kettle of fish however.

Thanks for the feedback@twwen2 Just goes to show how people can have different experiences. :)

I now go from my Cambridge audio bluray player direct to my power amp. A month ago I was going from dac to preamp to power amp. Next month who knows.

I was going to ask that too.  I guess we will just have to wait in the background for an integrated version to appear.

Hi @Cafad

 

What kind of features, power output, etc would you like to see in a Holton Integrated amplifier?

       The Rotel RB-1582 MKII amp (RRP $2799) is in perfect working condition and is pristine in appearance.  The unit was purchased from a local dealer in late 2018. My job roles changed since the purchase and I barely have time with my gears since.
      The unit is extremely well taken care of and was covered with cloth while not in use (I tend to be away from home for weeks!).
      The amp is barely used for 120 hrs in total. So, make sure you allow more burn-in time.
      I have all the original boxes, manuals etc.
       
      Details:
       
      Rotel’s largest stereo amplifier at 200 watts per channel provides the massive current to drive the very largest hi-fi systems effortlessly. And like its smaller brother, the RB-1582 MKII has been designed to excel at resolving the subtle details in music as well as supplying the brawn required for extremely dynamic passages. It is able to achieve this difficult dual requirement because of the meticulous attention paid to circuit design and parts selection.

      The RB-1582 MKII ‘s high-end performance begins with an extremely large toroidal transformer combined with a total of 60,000uF storage capacity in special “slit foil” capacitors to provide completely stable power to the output stage. Slit foil capacitors have the ability to charge and discharge extremely quickly, thereby ensuring signal fidelity during orchestral crescendos or repetitive kick-drum impacts, for example. Both left and right channel construction are laid out in a mono block design (after the toroidal transformer) and all grounding is terminated in a star pattern on a copper grounding plate to ensure low signal to noise. The output stage is a discrete design that consists of 10 high current bipolar transistors per channel. Input options consist of both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors.
      The RB-1582 stereo power amplifier is yet another outstanding example of Rotel’s Balanced Design Concept and will form the heart of a very impressive stereo or home theater system for years to come.
       
      Specifications:
       
      Power Configurations: 2 x 200 watts (20Hz-20kHz, <0.03%, 8 Ohms)
