Pre-Owned and Ex-Demo
About the 710
Nestled in the alpine foothills of Switzerland, Soulution hone their audio products much like all those fabulous watch brands that surround them. Precision, crisp fuctionality and bullet proof longevity is what you get – with stellar performance.
The electronics are the heart of the machine of course. First there's a huge power supply employing two 1000VA toroidal transformers feeding 250,000µF of storage capacity. This is a dual-mono, dual-differential design that fetures state of the art build quality and great attention to every element of circuit design and component choice. Speed is the fundamental goal (hence the huge bandwidth) and this is achieved by using proprietary designs of unity gain stages and zero feedback voltage amplification before the signal is fed to the final output stage.
Maximum output power, both channels driven, 20Hz–20kHz, at <0.1% THD: 130Wpc into 8 ohms (21.1dBW), 260Wpc into 4 ohms (21.1dBW), 440Wpc into 2 ohms (20.4dBW).
Maximum current output: 60A peak per channel.
Frequency response: DC–1MHz, –3dB. THD+N: <0.0007% at 50Wpc into 8 ohms.
Voltage gain: +26dB.
Input impedance: 4.8k ohms (XLR), 10k ohms (RCA).
Signal/noise ratio: 107dB.
Damping factor (100Hz): >10,000.
Power consumption at idle: 200W.
Dimensions (WHD): 535mm x 277mm x 480mm.
The Winters Audio Experience
To infinity and beyond...
The instantanious current output of this power amp is huge. Sixty Amps peak per chanel is no laughing matter and means that the construction of the chassis itself is key to the rapid removal of heat from the output devices. But what does that mean in real terms? Well, speaker driving capability, effortless dynamics and all the other obvious traits are there, but the headroom in the design also brings great clarity, stability and control to proceedings. This is a high-end power amplifier in the truest sense.
So here you are, wondering about going for a big upgrade. You no doubt need a hefty solid-state device to drive your speakers and room, else you probably wouldn't be looking here, but you're wondering if this pre-owned Soulution 710 could take you further up the path than you imagined possible. Well the answer to that is yes, it probably can.
