Densen is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a special BEAT pre- and power amplifier set: The BEAT POWER and BEAT PRE, which only can be bought directly from Densen’s webshop.
After 30 years of Densen production – and customer trade-ins and upgrades – the company accumulated large quantities of older Densen aluminium cabinets. Densen has always branded itself on its timeless design and quality materials, meaning these cabinets are still very usable and in great condition. Instead of simply throwing away quality aluminium cabinets for scrap, the company decided to breathe new life into them, by making the Densen 30’th anniversary BEAT power and BEAT pre models build with refurbished cabinets.
The Densen BEAT POWER is a 2x 60-watt power amplifier, made in a classic refurbished Densen cabinet – but the electronics inside are brand new. Based on the extremely popular Densen B-300XS power amplifier, the Densen BEAT POWER is in every way a heritage design, staying true to the Densen values of zero-feedback, the first few watts in pure class A, a stunning sound stage and of course great nuance. The power supply is a massive 60.000 uF using an impressive 500VA toroidal power supply with dual windings.
The Densen BEAT PRE is a classic Densen pre-amplifier based on the critically acclaimed B-250 pre-amplifier utilizing the classic Densen hallmarks of a dual-mono output stage based on a 6 watt class A design, relay controlled volume attenuator (with no less than 200 steps!) and compatible with the external 1-NRG power supply for even better performance – darker background and an expanded soundstage. Furthermore the BEAT PRE can be expanded with Densen DAC-boards and DP phono stages.
To celebrate the Densen anniversary, these units will be made in extremely limited quantities, and offered at €699 per unit. For this reason, only 1 pcs of BEAT PRE and 2 pcs BEAT POWER is allowed pr customer (so one customer is able to order a set pre- and power-amp set for bi-amping).
*Densen refurbished cabinets might have minor traces of prior use.
