MA 1000

The MA 100 high-end integrated amplifier delivers the best of two "worlds": the audiophile sound produced by the high-quality tube pre-amplifier with the simultaneously massive and stable output of a modern transistor power amplifier! In combination, these different technologies create the perfect conditions for excellent acoustical performance.

The heart of the MA 1000 is undoubtedly the tube pre-amplifier, which uses Russian-made pre-selected ECC-82 valves that have been burned in for 60 hours. A high-performance amplifier with discrete configuration using Toshiba power transistors delivers the necessary power. This thus provides the MA 1000 with 115 watts of continuous performance per channel.

Data sheet


Conclusion

"Excellent build, the greatest of care in production and choice of individual components along with grand audiophile potential characterise this Magnat combo, which is made up of the MA 1000 amplifier and the MCD 1050 CD player. The fact that no compromise was made between size and sound has really paid off. All this costs a few euros more than other components but you'll never be able to find such an enormously good price-performance ratio again.."

Conclusion

"The pleasant and harmonious but natural sound of Magnat's stereo combination revealed that the MA 100 and MCD 1050 are quite high-quality partners for playing back almost any type of source material. The ability of the MCD 1050 to also play back HiRes files from computers and notebooks via USB showed that the components have not shut themselves off from the modern age. Solid build, complex technology and timeless appearance are additional plus points for the stereo components."

Conclusion

"Magnat's elegant combination impresses with its premium workmanship and excellent musicality. The small Quantum Edelstein speakers proved to be the surprise package in our test, as they deliver a wonderfully vivid sound pattern despite their small size; the only thing lacking is a slight degree of emphasis in the bass range."
