Resolution Series FM 115
For applications where a single channel high power amplifier with finesse and dramatic rendering of dynamics is required the FM 115 is the absolute choice.
It is the ultimate solution ultimate for speaker systems that demand the perfect amplifier that can effortlessly provide high output voltage and at the same time very high output current - and keep ultimate fidelity.
Thanks to this singular capability (amplifiers usually either provide high output voltage or high output current but not both at the same instant ) it drives any speaker in this world with a literally unmatched musicality.
The FM 115 employs complete Resolution Series technology and uses advanced enhanced balanced Class A stages combined with the world's best protection systems.
A new feature unique to the FM 115 uses a unique new circuit that detects and eliminates any potential of very low level distortion. Furthermore, it uses a new proprietary true balanced input stage which automatically recognizes if the input signal is balanced, pseudo-balanced or unbalanced and converts these signals to true balanced.
Like the FM 111, its smaller brother, the FM 115 can be placed next to a speaker or in any remote location. It keeps all of the features such as delayed turn-on, all protection circuitry intelligence etc. even when power is switched on remotely. Within ten seconds it is fully operational and sounds absolutely optimal (unlike some other power amplifiers that need long warm up).
The FM 115 is a dream come true for those who require the ultimate single-channel high power amplifier with the unique transparency and build quality the Resolution Series is world famous for.

Max. Output Voltage:
Max. Output Current:
Unlimited repetitive peak output current. More than 35 A continuous. No output or DC fuses, absolutely no form of current-, voltage- or any other kind of limiting.
0,005% THD, no higher order harmonics
Less than 1 Hz to 60 kHz; if required, internally settable to any frequency between 1 kHz and 60 kHz (Low-Pass) and 1 Hz to 1 kHz (High-Pass).
Risetime at Full Power -3db:
Hum and Noise:
better than -100 dB (20Hz-20kHz).
Proprietary electronically balanced discrete enhanced class A circuitry, non-polarized, floating ground, non-inverting or inverting mode. Optimal performance with either balanced or unbalanced (single-ended) sources. Unbalanced sources are automatically balanced right at the input of the FM 115.
1.2 V RMS for full output
At all level settings from balanced and unbalanced sources:
100 dB typically, better than 95 dB at 50 Hz, even better at other frequencies.
Maximum Input Level:
+20 dBm (20Vpp)
No minimum impedance.
The amplifier is designed for 1 Ohm to 10’000 Ohm systems.
It can drive any speaker impedance (even below 1 Ohm) with dynamic (music) signals without any limiting, compression or other negative effects on the audio signal. Despite this, the amplifier is fully protected against short circuits, open circuits and all other adverse conditions via unique on-board circuitry that continuously surveys all important parameters.
