Merrill Audio announce a new high-end amplifier  using Merrill’s proprietary ZXOL design and called the ELEMENT series.

A great many new technologies are used in the new ELEMENT series, code name Project Oganesson.  This is named after the Oganesson element – the latest Atomic element added to the periodic table, OG with atomic number 118. The ELEMENT series of Amplifiers will start with the ELEMENT 118, as with Og 118, and continue with ELEMENT 116, ELEMENT 114 which will inherit this technology.

Using a zero feedback, open loop proprietary design, code named ZXOL from Merrill Audio, the Power amplifiers are said to “get the most details available and the fastest response” according to MErrills latest press release which continues “The open loop design takes advantage of the very latest exotic transistor technology using Gallium Nitride. Extracting and keep this accurate speed and huge amount of detail in the musical reproduction required a circuit board that has almost all its parasitic inductance and capacitance reduced to near zero”.

The ELEMENT 118 Power Amplifier Monoblocks, is said to have a huge reserve of power and delivers 400 watts into 8 ohms, 800 watts into 4 ohms and 1,600 watts into 2 ohms.  Dual pure copper WBT speaker binding posts provide easy bi-wiring. The ELEMENT 118 Power Amplifier Monoblocks are acoustically isolated on Stainless Steel Outriggers on GAIA footers from Isoacoustics.

See the World premiere of the ELEMENT 118 Power Amplifier Monoblocks, priced at $36,000 from Merrill Audio at the Munich High End Show Atrium 4.2 E226 Room.
