AMPTASTIC MINI-1 AMPLIFIER

Introducing our world famous mini hi-fi amp, clean, pure and deep sound quality without the fuss

HIGH QUALITY STEREO AMPLIFIER “BEST IN CLASS”

BEAUTIFUL SOUND, BEAUTIFUL DESIGN

Sometimes the simple solution is the best: The Mini-1 is an amazing single input stereo hi-fi audio amplifier, designed to sound honest and pure.

We've spent many years perfecting the circuitry, improving the bass response and lowering the overall distortion by using only the finest components. There is something very valve-like about the Tripath sound. Some say it's a true giant killer.

This little amp is neatly designed, it will fit in nicely with your existing setup, or even as a stylish second system. We've created a high quality, minimal screwless appearance that rivals many high-end brands.

Mini-1 stock available, contact sales@amptastic.com to purchase.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

“I got the amp today. And wow, this amp is amazing. The old one was great, but this is something else. It feels more mature. I love it.”Aleš F (Slovenia)

“What immediately struck me was the spacious and well defined sound stage and the tight, deep, extended bass”T. Baxter (United Kingdom)

“Just wanted to say how pleased I am with my Mini-1. I'm using it in my portable monitoring setup with some Auratone 5c's and it's more than adequate to mix with. It's taken a few weeks to open out, which might be the speakers too, and now sounds awesome.”S. Yarde (United Kingdom)

“The amp has arrived this morning. I am over the moon. A fantastic piece of kit. Thanks again for everything.”H. De Vylder (Belgium)

“My father in law is a jazz musician, I played him some records today and like myself he was gobsmacked by your product.”J. Jones (United Kingdom)

“I am hearing tons of stuff in my reference material that I've never heard before with my main system”J. Malysh (United Kingdom)

“I’m very happy with the Mini-1 and would recommend its consideration for use in a TV listening role as well as a regular HIFI component.”K. Jones (United Kingdom)

“Great work with your amps - absolutely delighted with my Mini-1.”J. Bleasdale (United Kingdom)

Mini-1 Amplifier
Sadly no, the Amptastic Mini-1 cannot be used as a traditional mono / mono-block amplifier. It is a limit to the internal Tripath chip design, not the Mini-1. This is because the Tripath amplifier chipset is bridged internally and operates in a BTL configuration. Customers looking for the highest quality and efficiency may decide to vertical bi-amp if they have bi-wirable speakers.
To get the best possible sound quality, discerning users might want to try Vertical Bi-amping their speakers with two amplifiers. If you have bi-wirable speakers you can run two Mini-1 amplifiers, one for each channel. A Y-Splitter is used to split the left and right channels into each amplifier. These can be picked up relatively inexpensively online. Please see the following guide which shows a typical vertical bi-amp configuration.

Yes, the Amptastic power supply shipped with the Mini-1 is fully approved for 110-250v operation and has a standard IEC C14 socket on one side for local AC connection. We supply either UK 3-pin AC cable or EU 2-pin with earth cable depending on your country.
Both! The Mini-1 has top quality gold plated speaker connectors (also known as binding posts) on the rear panel. They accept both bare/cut speaker cables and also cables terminated with 4mm banana plugs. To fit bare wires, carefully unscrew each speaker connector until you can see a hole for the speaker wires to fit into. Tighten the connector until the wire is securely fastened.

To fit banana plugs, carefully pull out the red and black plastic safety caps (if fitted). Use finger nails or a very thin bladed screw driver to do this. The caps should just pop off, but may need a little force. You can then insert the banana plug directly into the end of the connector. For a professional and simple means of connecting speaker wires, we strongly recommend the use of banana plugs
Configuring the Mini-1 amplifier into stereo power amp mode bypasses the volume control potentiometer. This gives the user the option of running the Mini-1 with a pre-amplifier device to control the input signal level.

Whilst we use an audio grade volume pot, removing components from the input signal path is a well respected method of improving fidelity. The feedback we've received from our happy customers is that running the amp in the power amp mode gives further 'headroom'.

Full instructions on adjusting the amplifier mode jumpers can be found in the Mini-1 user guide (see Mini-1 downloads).

** Please note that this procedure, whilst straight forward requires disassembly of your Mini-1 amplifier and therefore is not recommended to those who do no have the necessary experience or qualifications. This procedure may invalidate your warranty if not performed correctly, please take care when changing internal jumpers. Never carry out adjustment work with the power supply connected.
De-activating the the Blue status LED on the front panel of the Mini-1 amplifier is a common modification when running the amplifier 24/7 and for listening in dark rooms. We cant say de-activating the LED will increase the sound quality, however it was a frequently requested feature on the previous Mini-T amplifier. We have provided this facility on the Mini-1 and hope our customers find it very helpful.

Full instructions on adjusting the LED indication jumper can be found in the Mini-1 user guide (see Mini-1 downloads).
