The MTC Mk2 delivers full headphone sound – twice!
The output stage of the headphone amplifiers is designed as a push-pull amplifier in Class AB mode. The bipolar transistors share the amplification of the positive and negative half-waves, which produces a higher gain and a higher output voltage than in Class A operation, where only one transistor amplifies both half-waves.
The output stage transistors are thermally coupled and thus run particularly coherently, which contributes to a consistent and stable sound image. The power supply has a buffer circuit with low source resistance, ensuring generous current reserves even when operating low-impedance headphones.
Both headphone amplifiers feature the Phonitor Matrix.
(If CUE MIX is active, only the producer hears the headphone signal with Phonitor Matrix. The artist hears their headphone mix without Phonitor Matrix).
