Project Description

TIDAL INTRA

Tidal’s all new entry stereo power amp. The ingenious Intra. Half the size of the Impulse, less weight than the Camira DAC or Prisma preamp and with an exhaustive degree of functionality.

“The TIDAL Intra results from the uncompromising implementation of our most basic requirement, pure amplification of the musical signal without adding any sonic colour or concealing even the smallest of details. It is the successor of our award winning and worldwide praised TIDAL Impulse. With it we managed to offer TIDAL amplification in the same cabinet size such as the Prisma and Camira.

What might look at a first view as multi-channel purpose amplifier – is more than that. The TIDAL Intra is first and above all a high end stereo power amplifier. It contains two physically divided stereo modules inside,  built like a dual mono power amplifier. For true stereo power amplification one is using one channel per module per speaker side. Then each main power supply for each module takes care of only one channel – for ultimate sound.

The options on top of that are built inside already: one could also connect with two channels per speakers for passive or active bi-amping. Or one can integrate the TIDAL Intra into a high end multi channel system. Also one can bridge the Intra for subwoofer applications with the TIDAL LPX technology.

Whichever way, the Intra offers true stereo excellence.”
