Home Theatre Hi-Fi reviews JL Audio's E-112 (1500w) active subwoofer

https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/spe ... er-review/

"Let’s start by talking about the driver. This E-Sub E-112 sub is a sealed design with a custom-built long-throw 12″ driver. The most obvious peculiarity is in the driver’s depth. This massive driver nearly fills up the cabinet due to its deep motor structure. There are several reasons for this depth: First, the motor structure is designed to support the driver’s substantial 2-1/2″ peak-to-peak excursion with excellent linearity. Another reason is that the depth allows for the dual spiders which are spaced 6″ apart. The additional spider prevents twisting of the voice coil under the demanding acceleration-induced forces that come into play at higher SPL’s or during quick transients."

"In the stages where the metamorphosis was really taking hold, the wholeness of the bass sent chills up and down my spine with every beat of the black swan’s wings."

"Pipe organ is one instrument where a sub can actually enhance the realism (not just the impact) of music. In this case, the E-112 sub reinforced the sense of space as it should.

But of course you are wondering if the E-112 sub was able to produce the entire frequency range of the pipe organ. The answer is a resounding “yes”! The e112 sub filled in the fundamentals produced by the lowest pedals as heard in the final third of “Guilmant Final” or the opening bars on “Liszt Prelude & Fugue on Bach”."


"The JL Audio e112 subwoofer impressed me with its output capabilities and tuneful nature. There is no question that this driver, amp and cabinet system represents a holistic subwoofer system that is designed and focused on delivering high octane thrills."

"So if you are looking for a compact and nice looking sub for your home system, the E-Sub e112 is worth serious consideration and the very accessible price point makes it an even easier choice."

The Absolute Sound reviews JL Audio's E-112 (1500w) active subwoofer

"The qualities that have made previous JL Audio’s subwoofers exceptional—lack of bloat and overhang, coupled with tremendous power and authority—were evident in the new, more affordable e112. The pair of e112s was quick and agile, reproducing transient information with no smearing of leading-edge attacks, plus very fast decays. As a result, the subs didn’t dilute pace and rhythm, as many subs do."

"The JL Audio e112 seems to have sworn the Hippocratic Oath: First, do no harm. The e112 follows this dictum in two ways. First, its integral crossover is extremely clean and transparent. Second, this sub doesn’t call attention to itself by weighing down the music with a bloated rendering of the bottom end. These qualities alone would make the e112 a standout."

"It’s this combination of finesse and impact that makes the e112 such a stand-out in a crowded field—and at an eminently affordable price."

Soundstage Hi-Fi reviews JL Audio's E-112 (1500w) active subwoofer

"The main deal here is that 12” driver. I was told that JLA spent lots of time and effort engineering a woofer that could match the 3” peak-to-peak excursion of their W7-series woofers."

"There’s no question that, in a high-end system, the e112 can serve that purpose with aplomb. In fact, I wouldn’t hesitate to dial back the crossover to 40Hz and use the e112 with three-way floorstanding speakers with greater bass capabilities than the Magico S1’s. I think the e112 would still be quite a plus."

"To test the e112 in this respect, I chose Jack Johnson and Friends’ Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies for the Film Curious George (16/44.1 AIFF, Universal). The song “The 3 R’s” begins with a deep, tight kick drum that satisfies my inner need for bass impact. I listened to this track at peaks of about 95dB (at the listening position), and the tapestry of the music held together just perfectly. I felt the impact of each drumstroke in my chest and gut, just as I should, but there was zero muddying of the overall sound. Not once did the music become boomy or inaccurate in pitch. When Johnson’s voice entered, there was crisp, clear fidelity, with no unpleasant interactions between the e112 and the main speakers."

"I was thoroughly impressed with JL Audio’s E-Sub e112 subwoofer. It provides true supersub performance in a handsome package that."

"The JLA e112 could open up your speaker-buying possibilities, too -- you don’t have to buy that last octave. I certainly had a great time matching them with a super-resolution speaker like Magico’s S1.

At the end of the day, the E-Sub e112 is an output beast with fidelity to match. That’s worth the asking price in most any system. In fact, its performance makes the e112 the no-brainer buy of the year."

The E-Sub subwoofer driver features a radical, deep architecture designed to create a highly linear, mechanical action and a motor design with enough linear excursion to handle the challenging program material.

A totally new switching amplifier was engineered for the E-Subs, with a compact and efficient switching power supply. This design allows us to keep the E-Sub's dimensions compact while delivering ample clean power that will fully exercise the drivers' excursion ranges.

The E-Sub's feature set has been designed to allow the use of E-Subs in a wide range of applications, from full home theater systems to dedicated two-channel music systems, to desktop audio workstations. A true, two-way onboard crossover with high-pass line outputs allows the E-Sub to integrate seamlessly with two-channel systems, and high-level inputs even make it possible to add an E-Sub to systems lacking line outputs. Polarity and variable phase controls make it possible to precisely blend the E-Sub's output with that of your main speakers.

Every E-Sub is precision-built in JL Audio's U.S. factory and individually performance-verified and tested to deliver years of listening enjoyment in your home audio or home theater system.

JL Audio CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover -

JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

The lucky few who have heard a well-integrated subwoofer in a great audio system know that the subwoofer's effect is profound. While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.

Musicraft is pleased to announce that we will soon be receiving Sudgen Audio's new and long-awaited ANV-50 integrated amplifier

Image

The Masterclass ANV-50 is a new amplifier released to celebrate Sugden Audio’s fiftieth anniversary. It is a unique design with many innovative features and specially developed audio circuits.

Sudgen Audio ANV-50 integrated amplifier UK RRP £4000

Image

The company was founded by James Edward Sugden in 1967, a division of Research Electronics. Research Electronics manufactured scientific instruments and test equipment, designed by James Sugden, for Universities. The A21 was the first amplifier to be put into production and was originally branded for a well known local loudspeaker company called Richard Allan.

Sudgen Audio's new ANV-50 integrated amplifier

In 1967 Sugden released the world’s first solid state pure class A amplifier, the A21. The ANV-50 promises to revisit this golden age of British audio engineering, with a design focused on the demands and preferences of today’s audio enthusiast and music lover.

The ANV-50 has at its heart, the purest class A amplifier Sugden Audio has ever produced and this is coupled to an advanced ‘ideal’ final output stage. This unique two stage amplification system guarantees our signature pure class A sound, with the ability to drive most loudspeaker systems.

The sophisticated final output stage features a comparator and correction circuit so that errors which could occur in the power output section due to varying loads and distortion, are corrected to match the output of the high impedance input amplifier. Whilst maintaining the signal authenticity, it also increases the load stability and forces the output impedance to zero. This special output stage with Sugden Error Correction has extremely low open loop output impedance with a resultant high damping factor at quite high frequencies. It also benefits from overall Current-Feedback.

The power amplifier and pre-amplifier are fully DC coupled so there are no capacitors in the signal path to interfere with or deteriorate the sound quality. One of the key features of Sugden Class A amplifiers is the power supply. Because they have a high standing current and power reserves, the output is always ready to act instantly to any signal. This is unlike a conventional Class AB amplifier that waits to receive power through a transformer and a bridge rectifier. The ANV-50 takes this one step further by using a 1 MHz switching power supply which acts instantly to deliver the power as the Pure Class A amplifier section is always on.

The power supplies are high current, fast and incredibly stable. With a MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) of 100 years they are designed for longevity and reliability.

As the ANV-50 is an integrated amplifier it has an internal pre-amplifier, developed specifically for this amplifier. The circuit is a line drive design and uses the minimum number of components, all of which are high quality. This provides a very open and natural sound and demonstrates that when carefully engineered, less can be more.

When the ANV-50 does not receive an input signal it has a very low power consumption of only 20 Watts, making it extremely efficient. As the heat sinks are mounted internally with minimum contact to the outer case it only runs slightly warm to the touch.

Loudspeaker matching with the ANV-50 should never be a problem. With an output of 50 Watts into 8 Ohms that can double in to lower impedances, room size and loudspeaker sensitivity becomes less of an issue so a much larger range of loudspeakers can be enjoyed.
