Ultimate Performance with BTL
To further enhance power capacity, the MX-A5200 supports Bridge Tied Load (BTL) configuration for the front 2 channels. This allows for a major improvement to the front speaker performance.
As part of its uncompromising design, the MX-A5200 boasts a specially designed chassis to maximise rigidity and eliminate the effects of vibration. The MX-A5200 employs a double bottom construction consisting of vibration control plates made of 1.6 mm steel – echoing that of the legendary Z11 AV receiver.
In order to support the heavy heat sinks and other components, a left-right independent construction strengthened by a rigid-frame structure is utilised. The bottom frame reduces the transmission of vibration produced by the large power supply transformer and heat sinks.
The MX-A5200 also incorporates a heavy insulator that blocks external vibration.
Precisely planned, circuit-routed and designed with a symmetrical power amplifier layout, the MX-A5200 achieves ideal channel separation with left and right sides being both physically and electrically isolated. The design also greatly improves signal-to-noise ratio and achieves an expansive sound stage.
The MX-A5200 utilises a high-output, large toroidal transformer combined with 2 specially developed high-capacity block capacitors to deliver massive power with generous headroom. Also, energy loss is minimised and ensures effortless reproduction of sound sources.
The rear of the MX-A5200 features high-quality, gold-plated terminals that are compatible with Y plugs (spade connectors) for optimal connections with speakers.
