Welcome the Acutus Reference Mono SP, the next logical step and the leap in performance it offers will leave you breathless. 

During the development many experts and enthusiasts have witnessed the improvement, many disbelieving it could be the same record.
The difference is not a subtle subjective difference but an immediately obvious improvement in all aspects that goes way beyond any expectation.

Lower noise floor, extension of both bass and treble responses and a significant dynamic improvement surpassing the Acutus Reference.
But even more startling is the naturalness and intimacy of the performance as it truly enters your space and deep into your soul.

We have re-designed the amplifier stage way beyond most audio amplifiers and enabled twin mono operation to power each motor coil.
Not limiting performance to save cost the new power supply is truly mono, employing the contents of two full Reference power supplies.

So yes, there are two 1kVA mains transformers, twin regulated power stages, two massive capacitor banks and double soft start board, these vital to protect from the massive in-rush current potential that would attempt to draw nearly 100 amps of current when you switch on.

Not forsaking appearance, we have housed all this power into new casework to match the Reference Pre and Mono amplifiers.
Ever since their launch this casework design has received much praise. Logical then that this new power supply joins our Reference Line. 

It now means the Acutus is offered in three levels of performance and good news for existing Acutus owners, it's available as an upgrade. 

The all new Acutus Reference Mono SP is an unashamed indulgence that offers a no cost compromise at vinyl reproduction.
