Elements Power Amplifier
The Leema Acoustics Elements Power Amplifier is a high power output, microprocessor controlled, stereo and monoblock amplifier. It is capable of class-leading performance at the heart of an audiophile stereo system, but thanks to the LIPS (Leema intelligent protocol system) interface, it can also be part of a stunning home cinema or surround music system.
Each component in the system dynamically configures in real time depending on the requirements of each input source. The microprocessor gives an unprecedented degree of sophistication, making Leema products easy to use for all the family.
The unit can be used as a conventional stereo power amplifier with a pre-amp stage, or can be switched into monoblock mode and used in multiples for stereo or multi-channel systems. When used in monoblock mode, the power output is dramatically increased, offering incredible dynamics and slam in a tiny half-width package.
The Elements Power Amp is also able to use the proprietary LIPS control system enabling it to be integrated with other Leema system components. It could be used to simply bi-amp an existing Elements Integrated Amp or, using its on-board volume control, be used stand-alone with an Elements CD player or DAC to produce a short-path purist system without superfluous frills.
The on-board control and volume facilities allow stereo and monoblock units to be mixed in the same system without gain issues. For example, it is possible to bi-amp suitable speakers using three units – two in monoblock mode driving the power hungry bass drivers and one in stereo mode driving the tweeters.
This modular approach allows extra units to be added as funds allow or when more power is required, thereby future-proofing your investment.
Like the Elements Integrated amplifier upon which it is based, the Elements Poweramp produces much more subjective power output than its specifications would suggest. Indeed, in monoblock mode the dynamics give the impression of limitless power in sensibly specified systems.
Extensive protection systems are incorporated to ensure long term reliability. These include over voltage, under voltage, over current, over temperature and fault detection for speaker protection.
Input connection is available unbalanced via RCA / Cinch connectors, or fully balanced via XLR connectors. Speaker connection is via industry standard 4 mm banana plugs or shrouded banana plugs.
