    ATM-300R


    stereo power amplifier
    ATM-300R was developed as a reference model to show off the &lquo;Warm and Soft&rquo; sound of conventional 300B amplifiers and applaused enthusiastically, the ATM-300 was supported by many audiophiles in the world. In order to reflect the individuality of a wide variety of 300B , AIRTIGHT built a sound stage full of musicality that allows the sphere to fully demonstrate its potential while suppressing the colouring of the sound as much as possible. As a result, while making full use of the individuality of the sphere, they have realized the freshness that the music permeates, the vast and deep sound field, and the dynamics that makes one forget the specifications of a 9W output.

    Specifications

    Power Output : 9W+9W (THD<10%) THD below : 1% (1kHz / 1W / 8Ω) Input Sensitivity : 290mV (9W) Damping Factor : 7 (1kHz / 1W / 8Ω) Frequency Response : 30Hz~40kHz (−1dB / 1W) Dimensions : 430(W)×275(D)×245(H)mm Weight : 24.5kg
