    Page 4 amplifiers is almost non-existent. This is small comfort to the few, but take it easy and give us a call if you have problems. People are interested in how long it takes for these amplifiers to break in. It takes about an hour for them to warm up, and this is where we adjust them first. Then we adjust them again and again over a couple of days, keeping the bias and offset in the sweet spot. Our environment is about 23 degrees Centigrade, room temperature, and the heat sinks will rise to about 22 degrees C. above that, for a heat sink temperature of 45 degrees C. In your setup the temperature may vary a bit due to line voltage and ventilation, but it is not a big deal. You should be able to put your hands on the heat sinks without discomfort. The amplifier has a thermal cutout that will disconnect AC power if the temperature exceeds 75 degrees Centigrade. This should never occur in real life. More things to know: You can remotely operate the stand-by mode by applying 12 volts DC to the single pair of 5 way connectors on the rear of the amplifier. The positive of the 12 volts DC goes to the red connector. This connection has an actual operating range of about 9 volts to 15 volts. This switching will override the front panel button, so if you want the button to operate, leave the rear connection open. So much for essential information. Speaker Interface The X150 is optimized for loads nominally rated at 4 ohms and above. You can run the amplifiers into a lower nominal impedance without difficulty, and we are not aware of a speaker on the market that presents unusual difficulty with these amplifiers. The X amplifiers do not care particularly about the reactivity of the load. Reactive loads typically will have slightly less distortion at a given voltage/current level than resistive loads, but will make the amplifier run a little hotter. The X circuit was designed to be quite happy driving electrostatic and other speakers. When driving transformer-coupled loads directly, as in some electrostatic and ribbon designs, some attention must be paid to the DC character of the situation. If the transformer primary is being driven raw with no protection from DC and your source has DC voltage, or in cases where the small offset of the power amplifier is still too much, you may create distortion in the transformer and get less than optimal performance from it. Generally this is not the case with transformer coupled loudspeakers, but it does occasionally surface. In these cases, take special care that the source does not contain a differential DC component, and confirm the differential DC offset of the amplifier i .....
