The Focal MP1200 amplifier is the successor of the Wave MP1200 amplifier. The complete amplifier has been redesigned and the output power was increased significantly but with still retaining top notch signal quality. The Focal MP1200 received a complete new housing. The amplifier was built into a 19 inch 4U enclosure with a 10 mm thick front panel. The unique in the industry cooling tunnel for the transistors is still used and the system now received two temperature controlled fans.
The amplifier’ power supply and output power sections are over dimensioned to ensure the amplifier will continue to deliver high quality output signal even when driven at full power and under most extreme mains situations. As with all of Marcel’s products, the MP1200 was completely hand built under the supervision of Marcel himself. The Focal MP1200 was released beginning of the 1990’s but this amplifier will still outperform a lot of the current amplifiers on the market today. Should you ever come across a secondhand one, don’t hesitate and just buy it. You won’t regret it, this is truly a masterpiece.
