 Octave MRE 220 SE Mono Power Amplifier 

(price is per pair)


The history of the Octave MRE mono power amplifiers goes back to 1994. The first model was called the MRE 120. From the beginning, the idea behind this development was to develop tube power amplifiers that would transfer the charm of the tube to a variety of loudspeakers. Therefore, dynamics, pure performance, bandwidth and absolute stability are the prerequisites to achieve this goal.

A key feature of this new series of mono power amplifiers was the development of our advanced pentode circuit. This design found its way into all of our top amplifiers.
The development of the mono power amplifiers ranged from the MRE 120 to the MRE 130 to the MRE 220. Today the MRE 220 becomes the MRE 220 SE.


The MRE 220 SE, the latest model in this development, opens a new chapter in amplifier construction.
Many new loudspeaker concepts with high resolution in the midrange and the triumph of high-resolution digital formats lead to an unprecedented quality of playback. Despite all efforts, developing a power amplifier that harmonizes perfectly with all loudspeakers is - as experience shows - almost impossible. The requirements of the loudspeaker are too different in terms of power delivery, bandwidth and, as it turns out, also the damping factor (or negative feedback) of the power amplifier.

In countless listening tests with different loudspeakers, variable negative feedback with an impact on the damping factor emerged as an important criterion.


With this absolutely unique setting option, the interaction of the MRE 220 SE with speakers can be optimized almost perfectly. The MRE 220 SE therefore has a switch with which you can choose between the damping factor low and high (or negative feedback low and high).

This is a completely new approach to the problem of a power amplifier that should harmonize perfectly with all loudspeakers available on the market. However, the result speaks for itself: an incredibly clear, spacious reproduction with a perfectly embedded midrange, free of any impurities and a silky beautiful tonal balance, and this with (almost) all speakers.
