Beat the Heat with TBI's Incredibly Cool
Millenia MG3 Integrated Amp
This little amp has been flying under the radar for about 5 years and is finally getting somenotice by the audiophile press. The Gen 3 Class D amp is receiving quotes like.... ''for those needing an affordable amplifier that is a joy to listen to, the Millenia is an amplifier you need to hear''.
The TBI MG3 GEN 3
is sized to fit on a desk top (5.9' H by 2.75'' W by 6.69'' D) and looks incredibly cute on an amp stand with GoldenEar Triton II
towers or the Gallo Reference 3.5's
on each side, and big speaker cable ''hoses'' flowing out of the back th
e amp. The amazing thing is that the little TBI doesn't sound out of place! Most people can't believe that this mighty mouse amp is capable of all that good sound. At only $500 the Millenia ''smokes'' those little Tripath amps dominating the market.
Rated at 32 Watts/channel with the standard linear power supply it has enough power to drive most speakers to painfully loud levels. Using 8 AA batteries (12V) in its battery compartment it's rated at around 10W/ch. One of our cable manufacturers uses a 12V car battery with the amp to drive the midrange section of his reference system and put his exotic tube amps in ''dry dock''.
You'll never be without sound with this amp ...... it's ultra reliable and if the power goes out at your house, plug in your iPod or whatever into the front mini jack and run it off batteries! It will usually operate for about a day on one set of standard batteries. There are several mods and battery pack combinations you can use........ Call for details.
