NOTES:

Custom-made, ring type transformers with low inductance are enabling faster energy discharge by means of having triple twisted secondary conductors instead of a single wire.

Power bank condensers are custom made in leading German factory, as per Milan Karan`s own specs. Their extremely fast discharge rate is achieved partially by decreasing capacitors own inductance.

Electronic circuits are fully balanced, wide-band and extremely fast.

Components are capable of processing signals up to 20 MHz, properly handling prime tones and their harmonics as well.

An extremely efficient power consumption is achieved by applying real-time, analogue sliding-bias with 20% more current at the output than strictly needed for any given input signal level, ensuring more than enough power at all times, tough without overheating.

Offset voltages are controlled with DC servo circuits

Karan amplifiers are fully DC coupled, there are no condensers in the signal path, meaning true linearity – without condensers which would act as filters, influencing both frequency and phase responses.

Minimizing phase shift results in perfect positioning, especially in the increased depth and overall resolution of the soundstage, while keeping the natural timbres intact as well.
