Close to the spirit that has animated since its origin has always been
involved in the search for new solutions and improvement of its machines for Music.
E with this approach that Pathos after more than ten years after the
introduction of the integrated Pathos Logos presents its evolution MKII.
Pathos is not usual to introduce updated versions of its models except in
the presence of substantial and meaningful new ideas to offer its loyal customers
and in general to all lovers of good music.
Indeed behind the usual original design the new Logos MKII
hide the introduction of a series of new solutions some thinked in
order to further enhance the sound of the amplifier and others to meet the demand
for versatility and practicality that a demanding clientele pretends that is also
present in a high-end device.
As regards the first kind of solutions adopted in the new Logos we find an increased
voltage of anodic polarization of the valves in order to optimize the working point
of the same and obtain greater linearity and thus a general improvement of the sound
in particular an increase of the consistency and definition. Stabilized power supply
for preamp valve and a more accurate collocation of electrolytic capacitors throughout
the signal path (and in particular close to each mosfet) allow to have a valuable
reserve of "quick energy" that while listening they mean better dynamics, detail and
sense of rhythm.
Numerous innovations also regarding the practicality of use that they assist pleasantly
the owner in the use of the amplifier, we find: volume levels can be stored
for each input, the gain differentiation between digital and analog inputs
so as to ensure homogeneity of the a level between the different sources used,
standby function from the remote control respectful of energy consumption limits
imposed by the latest EEC regulations, ability to have an high quality DAC 24bit-192Khz
integrated into the device (optional). Also increased the already rich set of
connections with the addition of 2 SPIDF digital inputs and 1 USB input which
allows, together with the internal DAC ( optional), versatility in the management
of digital sources really meaningful and who participate with the Logos MkII
to be ideal amplifier for the use of digital Music. A new protection has also
been implemented against short circuits and overloads by a Hall effect sensor
that allows to the device to protect itself against shorts caused by speakers
and by internal malfunctions preserving in this case also the speakers and at
the same time without diminishing the quality of the musical signal.
Recall that the Logos is a hybrid amplifier of 110W per channel into 8 ohms and
220W into 4 ohms with ECC88 preamp valves, end-stage class A / B Mosfet strongly
polarized, fully balanced signal until the valve that allows you to take full
advantage of a balanced source as Pathos Digit and Pathos Endorphin, volume control
purely resistive analog circuitry with digital control and input and output
impedance constant, lamellar transformer resin and encapsulated to zero dispersions,
brightness display adjustable and all functions remote controlled.
