What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Ultra Stable Performance: Ideally suited for complex loads such as electrostatic speakers (may be operated into open circuit or any combination of reactive and/or resistive load)
 Unique Circuitry - Delivers superior performance under dynamics of music
 Overload Stability - and lack of crossover distortion provides clean effective loudness of much larger amplifier.

In the evolvement of the Dual 100 design, foremost consideration has been placed on listening quality. Needless to say, there was no place for the "but we've always done it this way" philosophy in its design. Certain well-known principles (but seldom used) are obviously  retained, such as quality of construction, an an adequate power supply. From a circuit standpoint, however, little of it resembles convention.
 One patent has been issued, another is pending, and even beyond thgis, the circuitry is unique. Interestingly enough, it is also very straight-forward and remarkably long-term stable.
 The output stage is one of these unique circuits, and needless to say, it does main fixed regardless of amplitude or complexity of signal.
