D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier – Power is Mass times Acceleration

According to Newton’s first law, force equals mass times acceleration, and this is exactly what the latest stereo amplifier from Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems LLC. is supposed to express through its name: D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier.

D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier, with this new power amplifier a new generation is to be heralded at Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems LLC. Namely, a generation of amplifiers based on the outstanding solutions of the D’Agostino Momentum Series, which in turn formed the basis for the US company as a whole.

As is well known, the D’Agostino Momentum Mono Amplifier was the product with which Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems LLC. was able to come up with and thus establish an impeccable reputation within a very short time.

D’Agostino Momentum MxV Series – A new performance level

With the new D’Agostino Momentum MxV Series, they want to go a decisive step further than before. No less than a completely new performance level is promised, whereby the solutions of this product series do not really differ from their predecessors, at least from the outside.

The company states that the new solutions of the D’Agostino Momentum MxV Series are based on the familiar chassis, but on the inside they offer meticulously developed concepts.

The company even states that they rely on features that originate from the development of the D’Agostino Relentless Series.

Newton’s first law as a basis

It is particularly exciting that Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems LLC. wants to express the extraordinary features of the new D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier or the entire D’Agostino Momentum MvX Series already in the product name, even if a little hidden.

Behind the epithet MvX is nothing other than Newton’s first law: force equals mass times acceleration, and if you translate this into English, it means “Mass times Velocity is the equation for Momentum”, in short MxV.

D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier – The little brother

Strictly speaking, the new D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier is the little brother of the also new D’Agostino Momentum M400 MxV Mono Amplifier, whereby it is a sacrilege to speak of “little” in this case.

Nevertheless, the manufacturer itself states that the D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier offers the exceptional sound quality of the D’Agostino Momentum M400 MxV Mono Amplifier, but in a more affordable stereo design.

The circuit topology and design of the stereo amplifier mirrors that of the monoblock, the manufacturer says. This uses the same high-efficiency Venturi copper heat sinks, the same metal film resistors, the same 69 MHz output transistors and the same fully complementary balanced configuration.

The result, he says, is a fidelity of sound unmatched by any other amplifier – except, of course, the D’Agostino Momentum M400 MxV Mono Amplifier itself.

As with its big brother, the US high-end hi-fi manufacturer emphasises the enormous power of the amplifier, while piquantly speaking of its compact size. After all, the D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier measures a not so modest 31.75 x 54.61 x 13.34 cm.

The backbone for the power potential is an ultra-quiet 1,800 VA linear transformer with a current output that is almost 50 per cent higher than previous solutions. In combination with a capacitor bank with almost 100,000 F, an output power of 250 watts at 8 ohms, 500 watts at 4 ohms or even 1,000 watts at speaker systems with an impedance of only 2 ohms is available. The D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier is said to be capable of driving any loudspeaker to its full potential.

According to Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems LLC, the D’Agostino Momentum HD Preamplifier is the ideal complement to the D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier, as it can be used to create a hi-fi chain that meets even the highest demands of audiophile music lovers.

According to the manufacturer, the new D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier is primarily available in silver, but a black version is also available on request.

Getting to the point

Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems LLC. is proud to announce the D’Agostino Momentum MxV Series. Following in the footsteps of the D’Agostino Relentless Mono Amplifier, he said, the D’Agostino Momentum Series has been taken to the new MxV level of performance. Keeping the same cabinet but with new circuitry, the D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Series amplifiers, and therefore the new D’Agostino Momentum S250 MvX Stereo Amplifier, represent a significant leap forward in performance.
