The upgrade of a legend

Upgrading a legend……The re-design of the classic MP amplifiers
The MP Series has been a solid performer since time began. Used in the most extreme operating environments and regularly pushed beyond its original design limits, thousands of MP amplifiers deliver reliable sound, day in day out. But technological advances in design and product manufacturing now mean that improvements can be made.
By optimising component selection and chassis design, the updated MP amplifiers now deliver more than +5% output power and have improved air flow for increased long-term reliability.
The MKII’s keep the same fundamental philosophies as the original MP amps. 

They are just as durable, just as easy to maintain and remain competitively priced.

Visually, all practical steps have been taken to maintain the well-recognised chassis design.

Built to last

The steel casing and sturdy construction are only the beginning.

Internally MP MKII amps uses extremely reliable components and comparatively simple amplification circuitry.

This means that should something happen, MP MKII amp is simple to repair.

STABLE DOWN TO 2 OHMS

Over 1/3rd of the internal chassis is taken up with a massive toroidal transformer.

This gives an MP MKII amp the power supply stability to function in the most extreme AC conditions.

MP MKII amps are also stable down to 2 Ohms. This allows for multiple 8 Ω or 16 Ω speakers to be driven with extreme and constant power.
