Country of Origin:

The quest for the optimal power amplifier has just taken another giant leap forward. The P-4500 features an instrumentation amplifier configuration realized with discrete semiconductors in the signal path, triple Darlington 4-parallel complementary push-pull architecture, and many other technical advantages. The result is an impressive S/N ratio of 121 dB, rated output of 500 watts into 1 ohm (music signals), and a damping factor of 700. A newly developed output protection circuit can also detect any short-circuiting of the speaker terminals, for complete peace of mind. This power amplifier is the ultimate tool for immersive music enjoyment on the highest level.

STEREO POWER AMPLIFIER WITH OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

Since it started from P-300 in 1973, during the past half-century, the history of Accuphase Power Amplifiers is continually evolving with a wide range of variations such as Monophonic, Class-A, and Class-AB. The P-4500 is the succession model of the P-4200 launched in 2013. This new model is a direct descendant of the first P-300, not only acting as a strong introduction but realizing the great electrical performance and sound quality coming close to the flagship A-250. The P-4500 features best-in-class low noise and high damping factor performance, and with the enhanced power output stage, it enables to perfectly drive the modern high-end loudspeakers.

Instrumentation amplifier topology further improves noise performance

The P-4500 employs an instrumentation amplifier configuration that is highly effective in keeping external noise from affecting the signal transmission lines. The configuration comprises a signal input unit that receives the signal from the preamplifier and a power amplification unit that sends power to the speakers. The input stage is designed for high gain (22 dB) and the power amplification stage for low gain (6 dB). Consequently, the internal signal has a large amplitude which makes it much less prone to interference, thereby further improving the noise performance.

Power amplification section with linear output characteristics

The power amplification stage of the P-4500 features bipolar power transistors mounted directly to large heat sinks for highly efficient thermal dissipation. The devices are configured as a triple Darlington 4-parallel complementary push-pull circuit that is capable of doubling the rated output when the impedance is halved. In other words, it achieves a fully linear power progression of 90 watts into 8 ohms, 180 watts into 4 ohms, and 360 watts into 2 ohms. It can even supply loads as low as 1 ohm with 500 watts of power (music signals). The impressive damping factor of 700 means that the amplifier has ample leeway to drive any kind of loudspeaker.
