The Densen B-250 is a reference preamplifier is perhaps one of the most advanced stereo preamps on the market. It is filled with advanced solutions, which all share one goal: giving you even more musicality.

The volume is controlled by an extremely precise attenuator made of Vishay metal film resistors, which is switched by relays controlled by the microprocessor. Compared to the normal volume potentiometer used in the majority of preamps, the resistor network has virtually no self-induced noise and an extremely low distortion. This results in an unsurpassed precision and refinement, and the attenuator contains no less than 200 steps! This makes it possible to adjust the volume very precisely (0.5 dB) even when the sound is so low that an ordinary volume control would create an uneven balance between left and right.
The B-250XS contains sockets for the SA surround Board and for DP-03 MM stage. It is also possible to upgrade the B-250XS with the DNRG external power supply, further enhancing sound quality and providing truly breathtaking musical experiences.
The DenLink system implemented in all Densen products allows 2-way communication in multiroom installations. On the B-250XS, the link system will allow the user to power up a link amplifier in the kitchen, or somewhere else, and then control the main system in the living room, sending the signals to and from the kitchen for playback in another room. It will still be possible to have full display information in another other room. The DenLink / Multiroom system is also ready for a light controller that will be able to dim the lights in the room.
The amplification stages are all completely new designs, based on advanced class A designs, which have been encapsulated on the motherboard to avoid any kind of interference with the delicate signal. The output stage is a dual mono design with an extraordinarily huge storage capacity (100.000 uF) which would make any other power amplifier envious. This design produces a musicality which is truly outstanding by any standards
Densen products are not only built to last; they’re also built to be upgraded along the way. Nearly all our amps, CD-players and tuners have been prepared for upgrades, so you can improve and expand your musical experiences at a favourable price and without compromising on design, build quality and sound. You can start out with a very simple system and end up with a high-end active system, just by upgrading.External power supplies
The Densen NRG upgrades, are external powersupplies designed to significantly upgrade and improve the performance of Densen products.
It is a effective way of improving the sound, without having to sell your current Densen model, and purchase a larger. A discrete and elegant cure for the ever continuing lust for even better sound from your Densen system.
Comes in 2 versions – DNRG and 2NRG.
The Densen FabelDAC is a DAC designed to be mounted in the surround slot on Densen Preamps or Integrated amps. It is bacically the DAC from the B-410 with 2 coax digital inputs. It will allow the connection of a digital source directly to a Densen integrated amp/preamp.
FabelDAC gives a fantastic performance for a rather modest price, and allows the use of digital sources like Sonus or Squeezebox or other digital sources you might want to listen to.
The DP-03 is an MM board for the B-250XS. The only difference between the DP-01 and DP-03 is the physical shape, which allows them to be used with different Densen products. Despite of the modest price of these two boards, it will offer you a world class RIAA when mounted in any Densen amplifier. Due to the technical design, the DP-03 and DP-01 work with all MM cartridges on the market, and actually do so with an outstanding sound quality.
Surround Board Upgrade
The SB boards (Surround Boards) are a revolution for new features. The SB boards are add-on boards for all integrated and pre-amplifiers (except the B-200). This is a very easy and sonically superior way to enter the world of home cinema or Super Audio systems. All our products are supplied as dedicated 2-channel products, but with the SB boards you get analogue 5.1 and 7.1 line input and 5.1 and 7.1 line pre-out. This means that you can easily connect a DVD-player or SACD-player with 5.1 analogue out. If you have a system consisting of a pre-amp and 2-channel power-amp, the SA boards let you connect a B-340 (4-channel amplifier) and then have 6-channels (5+1) of high grade amplification. The SB boards are available in 2 versions. The features are the same, only the sound quality differs. The SB-1 is the entry-level version, while SB-2 is the true high-end solution.
