About the Atsah Amplifiers

The Atsahs posess startling resolution and liquidity. Rated at 400w/8ohm - 1200w/2ohm with a 128dB S/N Ratio. These amps are quieter than many source components. They allow you to Forget your system, and engage with the music on an emotional level.

We guarantee this class D amplifier will deliver audio performance and sound quality well exceeding that of the best linear designs without trading in any of the classical benefits of switching amplification.

"There is a remarkable cleanness and very apparent freedom from distortion, fuzz and grain in the upper frequencies that will challenge your expectations. In addition to this remarkable clarity there is truly revelatory low level resolution that continuously reveals unknown harmonic content. This adds body and believability to everything you hear. " - 10Audio

Audiokarma review of the Atsah

NCore Technology: The heart of the Atsah

Hypex NCore amplifier technology is at the heart of this beast. The Atsah monoblocks incorporate the NC1200 NCore modules, matching power supply and are housed in a stunningly beautiful billet aluminum chassis. the KASTAL 300® high precision cast aluminum used in Athe Atsah's cases gives an excellent anodized finish with high wear resistance which will retain its beautiful good looks for a lifetime.

There are two sets of binding posts fitted to the ATSAH NC mono amplifier for biwiring. They are the WBT® - 0703 nextgen™ chassis terminals.

Ultra low noise and distortion

What makes these amplifiers so unique is the ultra low noise floor. Sow low in fact that most test equipment cannot measure it. a 128dB signal to noise ratio is quieter than most source gear. Meaning music emerges from the blackest of black backgrounds, giving you every nuance, every bit of ambiance that is in the recording.

" I've written before that this new amplifier is a stunning breakthrough in audio reproduction and to date I haven't heard anything close."

Important Notes

  • Price is per pair of amplifiers. Individual amplifiers are available for sale
  • These amplifiers require a balanced connection, or a properly designed single ended to balanced interconnect adapters. We recommend the Cardas adapters, and can supply them upon request.

Reviews and comments

"I got interested in the Atsahs in a conversation with Mike Garner who had always been so helpful. I owned a pair of Nuforce Reference 9v.2 and was inquiring about upgrading them. (Prior to the Nuforce's I owned a Cary V12i tube amp that had a gorgeous tone but not enough grip on the speakers) Mike suggested I take a listen to Acoustic Imagery amps. Given their expense, I hesitated. Eventually my curiosity got the better of me. Before I sat down to listen to the Atsahs, I spent an evening immersed in listening to my old amps. I was as delighted and emotionally moved by the music as I had been when I first purchased the Nuforces. As a result, I fully expected that there would only be marginal differences with the new amps, too subtle for these old and partially deaf ears to care much about. I was dismayed to discover how wrong I was. The Acoustic Imagery amps were of an entirely different order. They revealed my B&W 803d's to be vastly better speakers than I had previously thought. And I had never thought there was anything wrong with the speakers. Among other things, I no longer needed my subwoofer. While I could articulate the audiophile virtues of these amps at some length, what is much more important to me is how musically compelling they are. I keep being surprised when I listen, and I have never before been so moved by recorded music."

"These amplifiers are just as pleasing as the tube amplifiers we’ve reviewed here, but in an entirely different way. The sound is crystal clear with out being harsh and capable of carrying the bass with an obvious and firm grasp of the speakers’ low end. And the no imbalance between the high, mid, and low end was apparent. After more than a week of daily listening, sometime for several hours, I experienced no fatigue or other irritating nuisance – and actually left me going through my collection to find titles that could challenge these amplifiers.

The NCore monoblocks were compared to a Bryston 4B series and an Adcom GFA-5300, and while clearly capable of out powering each of them, exhibited a sound that was exceptionally different from the others. Stereo imaging was fantastic and the sound stage was pushed wide and clearly contained the individual instruments and sound in exacting locations between the speakers." - Hypex NC400 amplifier.
