Pure Class A
A class A amplifier has the particularity of having all its active components always in conduction. They fully amplify the input signal, thus limiting the harmonic distortion on the output signal. The output signal of the Master-3A is therefore of excellent quality, due to the absence of this famous sinusoidal crossing distortion.
“Linear Fidelity” Technology (Patent Pending)
The Master 3 output stages are using spectacular technology developed by Audio-GD in-house and is referred as “Linear Fidelity”. (patent pending) The output stages have zero negative feedback, which normally means increased and unwanted distortion.
Most power amp designs show increased distortion when the output level increases. The full frequency band’s distortion level increases even more, specially the low and high frequencies. The special Audio-GD “Linear Fidelity” technology can keep the distortion low and steady at all levels. This results in ultra linear performance.
The ultra low distortion of this non-negative feedback amplifier is achieved by its ultra linear behavior of the amplifier. This results in a very transparent and analogue sound stage.
