Inttroductiion
The totally new Martin

gy has changed the w
way the worrld looks att
professiona
al audio amplification. No
o other ampliffiers come close
c
for applications dem
manding high

long term re

azing reductiions in heat output along with reducctions in weight and the
specific high output po

Compared to a conventional amplifier, Martin
n Audio MA2
2.0 technolo
ogy offers ve
very high effficiency and
delivers mo
ore power to
o the loudsp
peakers with
h greatly reduced heat dissipation. This greate
er efficiencyy
mption to be
enables dim
mensions, weight
w
and power consum
e reduced. The
T
output sstages of th
he amplifiers
typically run
n at 95% efficciency, dissip
pating only 5
5% of the inp
put energy as
s heat.
One of the most interesting charac
cteristics is tthat MA2.0 efficiency
e
is almost indeppendent of output
o
level.
Conventional amplifierss achieve the
eir best efficciency only at
a full rated power
p
outpu t. Since stan
ndard musicc
has an averrage power density
d
of 40
0% of the ma
aximum level, convention
nal amplifierss can easily generate 10
times more heat than MA2.0 amplifie
ers for the sa
ame volume of sound.

The MA2.0 series ampllifiers feature

If either hea

m
be surre that the amplifier is set to the ccorrect mains voltage.
The AC Main connection is made via the IEC typ

connection to the ampliffier. Be sure that your AC
C mains pow
wer source has the requirrements indicated in this
manual. Th
he amplifier is a resistiv
ve load for tthe mains network, miniimizing the reactive pow
wer and the
harmonic diistortion on the
