Negative feedback can produce distortion of its own, however, and too much of eensen becomes obvious when listening to sibilants the “s” in wordswhere it sounds as if someone is hissing at you.

In any case, this is one of the very few amplifier designs we have ever tested that has this type of sound characteristic, and we consider it an extremely desirable one. There are some subtle differences, too, mostly noticeable in the background of the SET sound.

However, either amplifier can be used with a surround sound processor if the processor has the capability of routing the unprocessed signal through when it is turned off. The thumps are due to the lack of any additional circuitry which would eliminate the thump but possibly degrade the signal.

Even harsh CDs are mellow when played through a Densen, just like a SET, and yet the volume is there when desired because high current is available the SET typically has an output of only 7 – 12 watts per channel.

The upper portion of the audio spectrum is laid back, not quite as much as the SET, but just a little, and the mid-range is glorious, just like the SET. This not only results in a reduction in the problems listed above, which are normally corrected by the use of negative feedback, but also improves phase linearity and speed.

Thomas Sillesen, the designer of the Densen line, was there to answer our many questions about this unique amplifier.

The sound of the DM and B is somewhat like a single ended triode tube SET amplifier, and that is a complement indeed. Unlike the SET, however, the bass region on the Densens is powerful and deep.

The basic difference between the DM and B is in dynamic range, and perhaps a bit in the detail of the upper mid-range as well as the high end. Even harsh CDs are mellow when played through a Densen, denseh like a SET, and yet the volume is there when desired because high current is available the SET typically has an output of only 7 – 12 watts per channel.

The box and foam rubber protection weigh as much as some amplifiers! They are probably the result of even order harmonic distortion – a hallmark of the SET – that do not occur to any significant degree in the Densen amplifiers.

Their elegant sound is matched only by their looks. There are separate windings for the output stages bipolar transistors and the remaining portions of the amplifiers the DM as well as the B Negative feedback can produce distortion of its own, however, and too much of it becomes obvious when listening to sibilants the “s” in wordswhere it sounds as if someone is hissing at you.

The presence of negative feedback has several purposes, among others: We obtained not only the DM for testing, but the new BEAT B as well, and, as you will see, both amplifiers are very special in sound quality as well as their design.

One of the most important design characteristics of these amplifiers is the lack of global negative feedback. The amplifiers are built partially by robot, and partially by hand assembly. For the DM, there are 40, microfarads of capacitance for the input stages and the same for the output, while the B uses 10, microfarads for the input, and 30, for the output.

Unpacking the amplifiers is an experience in itself. The tape inputs and outputs are not tape loops.

We highly recommend that you audition these superb components. A red LED in between the two brass control knobs illuminates when the units are on, and slowly fades when turned off.

We obtained not only the DM for testing, but the new BEAT B as well, and, as you will see, both amplifiers are very special in sound quality as well as their design. In fact, the LED on denswn DM took 45 minutes to completely turn off since it is connected to the power capacitors.
