The video starts by showing the cosmetic design of the Mobile ES amplifiers, followed by the lineup overview and the power specs. They are not only powerful, but the high-quality sound is assured. High-Resoloution Audio capability makes it possible to reproduce music in the way the artists truly intended.
Minimal interference design includes the optimised power blocks that feature toroidal core transformers. The premium quality components include low-impedance electrolytic capacitors that realise clear and precise sound, and the inductors with OFC wires are chosen for lower internal resistance and improved sound character.
The mechanical design features sturdily built structures, featuring its bottom plate with a cross bracing press pattern. It improves chassis rigidity by approximately 50% and reduces resonance while shifting the resonance peak out of the vehicle’s harsh vibration frequency band, eventually realising better damping performance.
Usability has been updated with connection terminals which are designed for simple and durable installation, together with controls and adjustment logically placed for easy understanding and use.
The connection diagram explains that various input settings are available for more installation options, while the signal summing function provides seamless factory audio connections that allow for more flexibility.
Finally, the video gives a closer look at the control panel, showing its build quality and lets you glance at all five models once again before ending.
