The BSC-60s, 60 watt class A stereo power amplifier shares every feature and is built to the same standards as its big brother the BSC-100m. This 60 Watt per channel amplifier is built around a split 1,368 VA custom toroidal transformer and over 50,000 microfarads of filter capacitance per channel. The BSC-60s amplifier can double its 8 ohm rated output power into 1 ohm producing 480 watts continuously both channels driven.
The BSC-60s is a dual mono design having discrete driver, output and protection circuits.
The output stage for each channel is comprised of 2 massive internally mounted heat sink towers designed to cool the six 230V, 17A, 200W output devices. The towers are optimized to disperse the heat of the 60 watts pure Class A power over a wide cross section reducing the overall chassis temperature. The BSC-60s also allows the user to quickly reduce the Class A bias on the amplifier to a 50% or approximately 30W class A mode and further to a very low power ECO mode via the front panel rotary switch. Bias flexibility allows control over your power demand in different listening situations without limiting power output.
The BSC-60s also boasts aluminum powder coated chassis, custom machined hardcoat anodized front panel and decorative inserts, and solid brass machined gold plated output binding posts. BSC products have a 5 year warranty for parts and labor.
