mitsubishi DA-A15DC
mistsu's monster amp should sound very well, is'nt it?
Is there a special circuitry? Has anybody a scheme of it?
Who can help? :xeye:

I have owned one since the early 1980's. Smooth, decent high end, but weak into low impedance and/or reactive loads; when driven at all hard, the protection would cut in on loud bass transients. I experienced lots of trouble using it to drive Visonik David 50's with an M&K Goliath sub. I keep it around as a spare, and generally don't use it. When I replaced it I bought an Adcom GFA-545, which was much stronger and had a lot tighter bass. I still use the Adcom as my primary amp, use a Citation 16 as my secondary system, and run the Mitsu in the basement workshop. If you plan on running a difficult to drive load, I would suggest another amplifier.

this one?

Oh, yes :) this old gear looks nice... Do you owns one, tomtt?

...a question to NH TomG: but the Citation 16 should sound very good because it is an american brand. I own a HK reciever (2x100wpc) and it drives circle sound speakers and subwoofer by Phönix. It's a realistic 3D-sound - you need'nt sit in the stereo triangle you can walk around!

The Citation has significantly greater ability to drive difficult loads than the Mitsu, and is a good amp for it's time. In particular, I find it to have exceptionally well defined bass. I used to sell Citation gear new in the late 1970's, and still have a fondness for it, even though there are certainly better amps out there.

You're right, for example the citation x-1 or citation xx.
But do you have a scheme of the mitsu da-a150dc?

NH TomG 17th November 2006 09:11 PM

Sorry, I do not have a schematic for the DA-A15DC.

That's a pity. I'd like to know if there is a special circuitry like
class A with that amp cause the very low distortions. I think
it was one of the best in this time it was modern.
