Question THRESHOLD unknown model ??? Clue please anyone?



Hello,

Does someone have any clue of what that is: THRESHOLD SA/11m?

I have found one pair for sale, but can't find any info on the net or on Threshold Audio discontinued products list...

Is this list not complete? Is this a special model?

Once, someone offered an SA/40, and I thought he was mistaking... It seems it existed indeed?

I would appreciate any feedback on the amp. Is it a good bet for a used Threshold?

Thanks in advance!

If they existed, the SA/11 would probably been an
SA10 made for Germany, who was demanding special
model #'s at the time in an effort to shut out alternate
imports. This is speculation.

SA40? Don't know at all.

I saw the auction on ebay.de of that amp too and it definitely looks like an SA/10e. It is not an SA/12e as the seller thinks if you looks at the output power and list price he is listing. I have a pair of SA/12e's, so I know how they look, and they have 6 heatsinks on each side. This SA/11m has 4 on each side.

Cheers,

Michael

Thank you for your informations, Gentlemen!

I did receive a 1990 copy of an old review opposing an Accuphase M-1000 and the SA/11m which was indeed in a german HIFI Magazine...

2x270W@8Ohm and more than 2x500W@4Ohm...

Unfortunately, the Accuphase was clearly the winner of the test...



Thanks again!

Default Threshold model

I would have thought Germany would have desired ##11/s, anything instead of SA.

Anyway, it is a German model , i both read the test and saw the amp face to face.
That it did not PASS the Accuphase i do not consider impressive, the German taste favors dynamic behavior. The SA10 has been top of my list for a long time.

As no one replied to this number : SA/40 sounds like SA/4E.
Typo maybe ?
I am glad this is not a car site, the next Chevy is a Kia, i am still recovering.
