PNC 1200 MONOBLOCKS

Powerful • Musical • Detailed

HYPEX NC1200 BASED MONOBLOCK AMPLIFIER

POWERFUL AND PRECISE

Apollon Audio PNC1200 Monoblock Amplifier are built around the award winning Hypex NCore NC1200 amplifier module. Delivering plenty of power and amazing detail for the most demanding studio or audiophile speakers with amazing clarity and brutaly honest linear sound.

 

SPACIOUS, AIRY SOUND, ABUNDANT IN VIVID DETAIL WITH OUR CUSTOM INPUT BUFFER BOARD WITH WEISS OP2-BP

 The Apollon Audio PNC 1200 Monoblocks are exceptionally fast, uncommonly clean, and exceedingly musical with articulated, deep, tight, and powerful bass. This is how the mono blocks can be described in one sentence and we have accomplished that with using a linear power supply to power the highly acclaimed Weiss OP2-BP Op Amp that is incorporated on our custom input buffer board.

Exceptional chassis design

The chassis is custom machined from solid aluminium. 10mm thick walls and 8mm thick lid and bottom. For improved aesthetics we have designed the chassis in such a way that there are no screws visible when you look at the amplifier as they are only on the bottom plate.

The aluminium feet provide isolation and absorption from the ground plane.

The chassis is executed in a very tasteful piano black color (available in pearl white). It is spray painted rather than anodised since paint is a softer, more absorbent material.

A very special feature is the backlit glass plate with the engraved Apollon mark and the large heatsink that absorbs the heat from the NC1200 module and helps with keeping the amplifier module running on normal operating temperature even under high loads.

Carefully Crafted

Layout and design

The monoblock amplifier are handbuilt with highest precision using only highest quality components. To connect your speakers we use top of the line WBT 0703 AG Pure Silver Binding Posts that are internally connected to the amplifier with Neotech UP-OCC 12AWG Solid Copper and 18AWG Pure Silver Speaker Output Wire and soldered with WBT silver solder. The input connectors are Neutrik high quality silver plated XLR sockets. The mono block amplifier has a soft start function and it is turned on with a hidden push button switch on the bottom lid. 

 

The monoblock amplifier contains a Hypex NC1200 module coupled with our Apollon Audio PNC custom input buffer board with the acclaimed Weiss OP2-BP Op Amp onboard. The PNC1200 monoblock amplifier is powered with the SMPS Hypex power supply boasting 1200 Watts of power. The standby control module is powered with a low-voltage power supply unit.

 

Providing low ripple and ultra low noise power to the Weiss OP2-BP Op Amps is possible with our custom designed linear power supply with large Nichicon capacitors and the Sparkos Labs Discrete Voltage Regulators that play a key role for ultra low noise and fast transient responses on our custom input buffer boards for the Hypex NC1200 based amplifier. They are responsible for improved low level listening ability, far superior 3D soundstage and high frequency details. The difference is mostly noticeable at higher volumes, where the clarity remains on higher levels and with ample details and dynamics even at low listening levels.
