Pathos InPower MkII Monoblock Power Amplifier
A fully balanced, double InPol pure class A amplifier
InPol (Inseguitore Pompa Lineare - Linear Pump Follower) is a Pathos patented system that allows for much greater output in pure Class A. This fully balanced circuit design uses a single solid-state component in follower configuration, with a high-current gain and voltage gain together.
The tube amplifier amplifies the input signal voltage, and InPol supplies the current to drive the loudspeakers without any further amplification. The technology allows an increase in the theoretical output in pure Class A of between 25% and 50%. Together with a low output impedance and a double InPol circuit, the amplifier offers a high damping factor for immense control over the loudspeaker drivers.
"We buy the tree"
That wood front panel? Well, Pathos' story is best told by a tree. Specifically, the entire padouk tree trunk that's bought by this Italian audio manufacturer, then cut into planks in-house, with the final pieces hand-polished by the son of the Pathos owner himself.
The panel may not contribute to the sound, but this approach says everything about the great sonics you do hear. Having control of entire manufacturing processes from start to finish means that the Pathos InPol2 is the very best amp it can possibly be at its price-point. These are the very best amps Kevin has heard, and it is Pathos that he has picked for his reference system at home.
