The Densen B-130XS in reality is a downscaled B-150PLUS using many of the same advanced solutions, that has made the B-150PLUS amplifier of the year, and editors choice in many countries.
Compared to the “old” B-130 and B-130PLUS, the B-130XS is significantly upgraded in the audio circuit, resulting in an even more impressive performance, than before. Further, it has a new interface, that will allow it to control an internal Densen DAC with USB, Toslink and COAX digital inputs, where the pushbuttons on the front and the Gizmo will control the input selection, and the display will correctly indicate which input on the DAC that is chosen.
This new DAC will be launched in 2015. The B-130XS is prepared for it but will require a software update to control it. This software update will be done free of charge by your Densen distributor.
The B-130XS contains Densens strong signature of engaging and neutral sound, with both details and dynamics. The topology solutions are highly advanced, and not normally present in amplifiers in this price range. Like all other Densen amplifiers, the B-130XS is a non-feedback design, using extremely fast and reliable transistors, and other high-quality parts to make an amplifier which no matter the loading, will perform at its best.
The B-130XS contains several unique features, like a processor loop, to allow easy connection to external surround processors and the possibility of adding Densens SB-1 or SB-2 analogue surround boards for easy connection to BluRay players with analogue 5+1 or 7+1 output.
Also, there is internal sockets for the Densens DP-03 MM stage and the forthcoming DP-06 MC stage.
Naturally, Densens B-130XS contains several connections, including 2 preamp outputs, so it is possible to upgrade to either bi- or tri-amping. Internally in the B-130XS is a socket, which allows to further update with the Densen SAXO electronic crossover to an active system.
The B-130XS contains separate power supplies for output transistors, drivers, preamp and microprocessor, a total of 7 rectifiers and 90.000uF capacity coupled with a massive toroid transformer, which is encapsulated to minimize the influence from vibrations. By use of surface mounted components, it has been possible to keep the total size of the PCB small, to minimize EFI distortion on the circuit. As such, each amplifier channel is not larger than a credit card, which has allowed a much faster than normal circuit, due to the minimum EFI influence.
Not only the power supply and PCB layout is done without any compromise, but also the used components are of extremely high quality, as such there is used Vishay metal film resistors, custom-made capacitors, high-quality Vima Film capacitors, Sanken transistors, sealed relays and goldplated inputs. However the most important is the sound, and the Densen team has done as much as humanly possible to make the sound performance of the B-130XS second to none.
The B-130XS delivers 80watt in 8 ohms, and 160watts in 4 ohms. Has connections for Densens DenLink multiroom system, and like with all other Densen products, comes with a lifelong warranty for the first owner.
