Eden Electronics announced that it is now shipping its WT1205 integrated amplifier.
The WT1205 is a two channel amplifier with full control sets for each channel. This allows the user to use two basses (or a stereo instrument) and create two completely different tones for each instrument. The user can also use a single bass and switch between two tone configurations.
Each channel includes a 7025 tube in the front end for maximum warmth and features variable compression as well as Eden's unique Enhance Control, a sophisticated tone shaping circuit that allows quick and easy tone shaping. The included footswitch allows the user to switch channels on the fly, as well as engage Mute to Tune, Enhance Bypass and Turbo Boost (+6dB) functions.
Power is delivered by a pair of intergrated power amplifiers utilizing Eden's proprietary toroid transformer to deliver 325 Watts @ 8 Ohms, 500 Watts @ 4 Ohms, and 600 Watts @ 2 Ohms (RMS per channel with both channels driven). In Mono Bridge mode, the WT1205 produces 1000 Watts RMS @ 8 Ohms and a massive 1200 Watts RMS @ 4 Ohms. All modes of operation feature +3dB in headroom. At peak power, the amplifier will deliver a ground-shaking 2400 Watts in Mono Bridge mode (@ 4 Ohms). Other features include:
- D.I. output with ground lift, Pre-/Post-EQ select switch and AutoMix technology which automatically sends the active channel(s) signals to outboard equipment.
- Eden's new Dynamic Boost circuitry for Bass and Treble. Based on the Fletcher-Munson curve, which describes how the human ear hears varying frequencies at different volumes, the Dynamic Boost ensures a full, rich tone even at lower volume levels.
- Pre- and Post-EQ effects loops on each channel.
- Tuner and Headphone/Slave Outputs.
Although Eden manufactures several speaker systems that will match well with the WT1205, one of the best matches for a powerful yet compact rig is the company's new D610XLT. Rated at 1050Watts RMS into 6 Ohms, the cabinet is a near-perfect match, receiving 1100 Watts RMS from the WT1205 in Bridge Mode. Other suggested systems include a pair of Eden's D410XLT cabinets or a pair of D210XST systems.
The WT1205 will also be the first product from the company to feature its new back-lit logo and updated graphics design.
The WT1205 is currently shipping to stores. Although the entire first run of production is already sold out, a second run is scheduled for late October.
