Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems Progression Monoblock Amplifiers AXPONA 2016

 

  Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems will be unveiling their new Progression monoblock amplifiers ($39,000 per pair) at AXPONA 2016's Banks Room. The Progression series, a new line of components designed to deliver D'Agostino-quality sound at more affordable prices. As the first component within this new series, the 800-watt Progression mono amplifier will be shown with the Momentum Phonostage, Momentum Preamplifier, and the Stromtank S5000 battery power source. Digital source units will be provided by DCS and the Wilson Audio Alexias will be the demonstration speakers.

Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems Progression monoblock amplifier is the largest and most powerful the company has made to date. It delivers 800 watts into 8 Ohms, doubling to 1600 watts into 4 Ohms and doubling again to 3200 watts into 2 Ohms. It employs a fully complementary driver stage, beefed up with 84 output transistors, a 4000 VA power supply transformer and 400,000 microfarads of power supply storage capacitance.

The iconic look of the Momentum amplifiers' power meters, inspired by the elegant faces of classic Swiss watches, continues with the Progression series. The Progression mono amplifier features a new meter design with a 270-degree needle swing, driven by a high-speed ballistic circuit that enhances the meter's responsiveness. The longer swing allows the needle to cover the amplifier's entire output range. The venturi heatsink design premiered in the Momentum amplifiers has been adapted to the cooling needs of the Progression mono amplifier by adding a second row of venturis to each heatsink. Each heatsink is milled from a single, 48.5 pound aluminum billet.

 


Momentum Phonostage

 

"With the Momentum series amplifiers, I focused on combining high power output with a relatively small form factor. But I knew some of our customers had a desire for a larger, more powerful amp at a somewhat more affordable price," company Founder and Chief Engineer Dan D'Agostino said. "That's why we created the Progression series. These components are a little more affordable than the Momentum series, in large part because we used aluminum instead of copper for the heatsinks. Progression doesn't quite match the sonics of Momentum, but these components still have most of the hallmarks of Momentum, including through-hole construction for the best sound quality and durability, and the same unmistakable, elegant look. Like all our products, the Progression series components will be built by hand in our Arizona factory, under my personal supervision."

The Progression mono amplifier is projected to ship in the second quarter of 2016 and will be available in silver or black finish. The Progression mono amplifier will be followed by a stereo amplifier, a stereo preamp and a lifestyle amplifier similar to the Momentum Lifestyle MLife integrated amplifier/DAC/streamer.
