Densen
B-130XS

The B-130XS is the perfect match for the entry-level home stereo, as it offers the same highly refined and detail-oriented sound reproduction standard pertaining to a Densen amplifier at a more affordable price point than its sibling models, the B-150XS and B-175+.

Despite its lower price point, the B-130XS is a strong performer. Using the same microprocessor controlled relay attenuator, and a similar power amplifier as the B-150, here with 2x80W/8ohm and 2x160W/4ohm. The B-130XS has the legendary power of Densen, with firm grip on speakers and musicality

 

 

HighLights

The B-130XS is the cheapest of the Densen integrated amplifiers, but it comes with many high-end solutions, and the topology is similar to the top-of-the-line B-175.

  • 200 0.5dB step relay volume control
  • Powerfull 550VA Torrodial powersupply which is encapsulated in order to isolate the main-PCB from vibrations.
  • 110.000uF capacitor bank made with Custom Densen capacitors
  • Expansionport for DP-07 phonoboard – turn your line-1 input into a phono-input.
  • Expansionport for future upgrades (DAC, Surround, Streaming)
  • Upgradeable with external powersupply (1-NRG, 2-NRG)
  • THD + Noise @ rated output: Less than 0.05%
  • Designed in Denmark – Made in Denmark

Description

The B-130XS contains Densen’s strong signature of engaging and neutral sound, with both details and dynamics. The topology solutions are highly advanced, and not normal present in amplifiers in this pricerange. Like all other Densen amplifiers the B-130XS is a non-feedback design, using extremely fast and reliable transistors, and other high quality parts to make an amplifier which no matter the loading, will perform at its best.

The B-130XS contains several unique features, like processorloop, to allow easy connection to external surroundprocessors and the possibility of adding Densens SB-1 or SB-2 analogue surroundboards for easy connection to BluRay players with analogue 5+1 or 7+1 output. It’s also possible to add a FabelDAC or FabelCAST module in order to add digital inputs to the B-130XS.

Also there is internal sockets for Densens DP-07 MM stage.

Naturally Densen’s B-130XS contains several connections, including 2 preamp outputs, so it is possible to upgrade to either bi- or tri-amping. Internally in the B-130XS is a socket, which allows to further update with the Densen SAXO electronic crossover to an active system.

The B-130XS contains separate powersupplies for outputtransistors, drivers, preamp and microprocessor, a total of 7 rectifiers and 90.000uF capacity coupled with a massive toroid transformer, which is encapsulated to minimize influence from vibrations. By use of surface mounted components, it has been possible to keep the total size of the PCB small, to minimize EFI distortion on the circuit. As such each amplifier channel is not larger than a credit card, which has allowed a much faster than normal circuit, due to the minimum EFI influence.

Not only the powersupply and pcb layout is done without any compromise, also the used components are of an extremely high quality, as such there is used Vishay metalfilm resistors, custommade capacitors, high quality Vima Film capacitors, Sanken transistors, sealed relays and goldplated inputs. However the most important is the sound, and the Densen team has done as much as humanly possible to make the sound performance of the B-130XS second to none. 

The B-130XS delievers 80watt in 8 ohm, and 160watts in 4 ohm. Has connections for Densens DenLink system, and as all other Densen products, comes with a lifelong warrenty for the first owner.

Reviews & Customer feedback

“It easily separates out complex musical strands and presents them as individual entities with no clashing or smearing.  Imaging too is precise and three dimensional, extending way out beyond the speaker boundaries, with depth and height well portrayed.

Sound quality is refined and powerful, with seemingly unflappable power delivery.  Timing is excellent, transients delivered with both speed and power, while at low level listening it is as clear and lucid as it is at high volumes.”
