Dan D’Agostino Momentum monoblock
Dan D’Agostino’s statement product, the 300W (450W at actual clipping into 8 ohms) Momentum has a compact chassis (12.5″ W by 5″ H by 21″ D) machined from a single aluminum billet. A large, round power meter dominates the front panel, while thick copper side panels act as heatsinks. The low-feedback, fully complementary, balanced design uses 1% metal-film resistors and two dozen 69MHz output transistors in a direct-coupled, discrete, bipolar output circuit with a claimed frequency response of 20Hz–20kHz, ±0.1dB. The Momentums produced a seamless overall sound, with slightly reserved highs, a tube-like midrange, and an authoritative bottom end, said MF. “With the darTZeel NHB-458, it’s one of the two most satisfying power amplifiers I’ve ever heard,” he concluded. “This is an amplifier that is as well engineered as it is beautiful to behold,” said JA. Add $5000 for black finish. (Vol.36 No.2 WWW)
