Densen
B-130XS

For those dreaming of the B-150XS, the B-130XS might be to get as close to the dream as possible. The B-130XS takes the performance of the  B-150XS and delivers 95% of this at a more  affordable package. Still the B-130+ is a strong performer.

Using the same microprocessor-controlled relay  attenuator, and a similar power amplifier as the B-150XS, here with 2x80W/8ohm and 2x160W/4ohm, the B-130XS has the legendary power of Densen, with firm grip on speakers and musicality.
The features known from Densen, like possibility of RIAA, Bi/tri/Quad amping, FabelDAC internal DAC and a clever processorloop rounds this strong performer from Densen off, and let you focus on music and pleasure for years to come.

The integrated Densens are built to perform and
are crafted with the same care and technology as

their separate siblings. Each unit is the result of perfect craftmanship.
 
  • 200 step relay controlled volumecontrol (0,5 dB steps)
  • Custom made 500VA torrodial transformer insures ultra low-noise and a firm grip on speakers
  • 60.000 uF capacitor bank made with custom Densen high speed 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)
  • Designed in Denmark – Made in Denmark

Description

Densen now introduces the B-130XS. The B-130XS in reality is a downscaled B-150PLUS using many of the same advanced solutions, that has made the B-150PLUS amplifier of the year, and editors choice in many countries.

Compared to the “old” B-130 and B-130PLUS, the B-130XS is significantly upgraded in the audio  circuit, resulting in an even more impressive performance, than before. Further more it has a new interface, that will allow it to control an internal Densen DAC with either Toslink or COAX digital inputs, where the pushbottons on the front and the Gizmo will control the input selection, and the display will correctly indicate which input on the DAC that is choosen.

The B-130XS contains Densens 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.

Also there is an internal socket for Densens DP-7 MM stage.

Naturally Densens 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 multiroom 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.”
