The AURALiC Merak is a 400 watt monoblock amplifier comprising a hybrid solution of both cutting edge digital and Class A amplification. This yields high output, high efficiency and a sweet inviting sound with substantial authority when required.

The heart of Merak is AURALiC's Hybrid Analogue Amplification technology. By jointly using it with the ORFEO Class A output module, input isolation transformer, linear power supply and several latest technologies, AURALiC has successfully brought the design essence of the analogue age back to life. With the new generation of switching technology, MERAK achieves 400W of continuous output power while maintaining its efficiency at 90%.

The Merak benefits from a linear power supply and a 56,000uF capacitors array, the energy storage of MERAK is more than 120 Joule. This enables Merak to deliver 16 amps peak current, which equates to about 900W power into large, power-hungry loudspeakers. The result of this approach is the ability to present a large dynamic soundstage whilst retaining the finest detail of  your music.

The sound of Merak is sweet, warm and vivid with great artistic appeal; it fulfils AURALiC’s elegant and graceful aesthetic taste. Thanks to the Hybrid Analogue Amplifier technology and power management circuit, Merak realizes the perfect balanced between driving capability and energy consumption.

Compared to other traditional power amplifiers, Merak is more environmentally friendly by potentially reducing carbon emission of 1100kg per year, making it another pioneer of ‘green’ hi-end equipment.
