And Sonics added their front & rear panels along with input circuitry. Over the years these amps have found their way into the consumer/used market and audiophiles jump at the opportunity to own one of these legendary amplifiers. The Sonics 800X is almost identical to a Bryston. 7B - they were basically.
Rebadged with Sonics front/back plates with slightly modified circuitry for their use with IMAX systems. Unit come with new 6x30mm 150V fast-blow fuses. The 800X is set up as a monoblock amp, (two mono channels within set up in push-pull configuration) and there are no switches to change from series or parallel. Inside are two identical power amplifiers set for bridge operation for 500 watts into 8 ohms or 800 watts into 4 ohms.Conversion to 2-channel stereo operation is possible by disabling the input module internally. Step-by-step instructions to convert the 800X to a stereo amp can be found below however we assume no responsibility for any issues/damage arising from modifying these amplifiers. UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE PURCHASING.
A Bryston by any other name..
