September 1, 2014: For Immediate Release!
Tenor Audio is pleased to announce the new performance enhancement for the 350M Ultimate Reference Mono Block amplifier. Officially know as the 350M HP, this 2015 upgrade features a new 2600 VA transformer with optimized power supply and remapped current sharing power modules. Achieving power delivery of up to 1500 watts per channel continuously driven while including Tenor’s legendary Zero Perceived Distortion - HSI technology … as follows:
500 watts @ 8Ω*
950 watts @ 4Ω*
1,500 watts @ 2Ω*
*continuous input at 1kHz at all world voltages!
In addition to the profound increase in power, the Haute Puissance has twice the damping factor of the venerable 350M - which effectively doubles the ability to control undesirable movement of the speaker cone near the resonant frequency of the speaker - making the 350M HP and the speakers attached, explosive in the delivery of music - just like the real performance!
The Haute Puissance aesthetics are heightened over Tenor’s standard cherry wood and metal finish with the addition of hundreds of internal micro LEDs with their soft blue glow drawing you into the amplifier's beautiful internal workings which are further enhanced by the blue luminescence of the transformer’s Starfire crystal lens sitting proud through the top plate. Some say the Starfire crystal draws on all the power of the Universe which is why the Haute Puissance sounds so good!!
Enhanced power integration with Tenor’s Line 1/Power 1 allows an entire Tenor system to be turned on or off safely with the touch of a single button. High End just got easier and more luxurious!
