The Monrio MC 207 is a solid-state fully dual-mono integrated amplifier, spec'd for 80 watt per channel on 8 Ohm, 135 watt on 4 Ohm. The dual-mono concept has been applied down to its extreme consequences as it starts right from the power supply section. Indeed, this makes use of two 200 VA toroidal transformers and 4 x 2 sets of caps for a total of 80,000 uF, smaller, toroidal transformer is used for "services".
The MC207 has 5 line inputs (no phono, TAPE IN included) + a TAPE OUT output. Also available is a DIRECT input, which is a standard "main in" i.e. a direct access to the power stage. This way the MC 207 can be used as a pure and simple power amp, for example in multichannel applications or with a better preamp for a step-by-step upgrade.
Input selection is assisted by servo-controlled relays, activated by the input selection keyboard in the front panel. Small, red leds indicate which input has been selected.
After power on the amplifier enters a stand-by mode.
The front panel is a classic aluminium fascia while the rest of the cabinet is plain black. Aesthetically, the MC 207 appears unobtrusive and living-room friendly.
The rear panel hosts gold plated RCA inputs and gold plated loudspeaker binding posts. An IEC-standard mains inlet is also supplied.
