    Event Reports - The Speaker Shack visits HMF Solutions with the Focal Stella Utopia EM Speakers.

    I paid a visit to HMF Solutions who are based in London and specialise in some of the best boutique high end audio products which will make you never want to leave or listen to Stravinsky on anything else but Focal and NAGRA electronics. It was a few hours of musical bliss and for the first time I got to hear what amazing sound NAGRA and Focal Speakers can make together.

    http://speakershack.co.uk/articleResult.php?subject=3&record=1211#.V-ErQ-7veT9.mailto

    The system that Ian the owner of HMF Solutions was demonstrating was a pure reference set up with the new NAGRA Classic amplifiers in bridged mode, meaning the Focal Stella Utopia Speakers were being fed with some serious current from the NAGRA Classic amplifiers. The line stage was equally impressive comprising of the NAGRA Jazz Preamplifier with dedicated PSU to feed clean DC current to the delicate pre-amp stages. Also accompanying the Jazz was the NAGRA HD DAC and CDC Transport which was playing some of John Rutters Requiem. This sounded sublime with great resolution and imaging from the Focal speakers. The high notes just melted away with no stress or strain on the ears but instead was a soothing and satisfying blend of how good Classical music can sound and one of the reasons I love listening to quality high end audio equipment, especially when it is of this calibre.

    The NAGRA Classic Amplifiers had an amazing grip on the Focal speakers with plenty of headroom as Ian adjusted the volume levels, giving a hint of just how much they actually possessed, suffice to say they easily drove the room to very high levels with plenty more power in reserve. The power of these amps in bridged mode was very impressive and for the price they sounded as good as anything else that I have heard before, that includes the likes of Krell, D’Agostino and Audio Research. I love the look of NAGRA kit as they simply ooze quality. With thick aluminium panels they are solid and have such a retro but fresh and up to date modern look about them, I also like the black and white VU meters that they have on each of the amps. Indicating the power levels on both units. This is not something new but distinctly NAGRA in style.

    The Focal Stella Utopia EM Speakers are an extremely menacing looking speaker, but for all the right reasons. They are so well built and look stunning in room and are big, but nowhere near as big as the Grand Utopia speakers that I have also listened to. They lack nothing when it comes to scale though and were firing off a huge sound stage on the end of the NAGRA electronics which seem to be so well mated. My favourite part of the visit to HMF Solutions was when Ian put on some Vinyl, it sounded simply sublime with so much power from the Focal speakers that you could really hear everything off the album. The detail and resolution had me drooling for more. Stravinsky’s Firebird was breath taking on the end of this kit. Every bit of emotion came through in the music which had me glued to my seat.

    NAGRA is a brand that I have been longing to hear and I am so glad that I made the trip up to HMF Solutions as Ian has really done a stupendous job at setting up this intricate but fascinating system. I have had a taste of what the Swiss can do and it is truly magical when in full flow. NAGRA is a brand that I will certainly be revisiting and listening to again, hopefully next time it will be in my room with my set up.

    Reference (Haute fidélité)
    http://www.nagraaudio.com/wp-content/uploads/CLASSIC-AMP_HauteFidélité_2015.pdf

    The Nagra CLASSIC AMP was designed for extremely high quality installations, which require high power while maintaining a perfect musical delivery of the Watts.
    The unit operates in pure class A over a very large power band and beyond in class AB. Each of the output stages is based on tandem MOSFET transistors of exceptional characteristics.

    Generally, assembly of an equivalent output stage requires several pairs of transistors, which is difficult to achieve precisely. The simplicity of the CLASSIC AMP’s design is the key to its musicality.
    The input and driver stages also contribute equally to the overall performance and precision.
    The Nagra CLASSIC AMP is characterised by its stability, irrespective of the loads placed upon it.
    The power circuits drew particular care in the design stage.

    They are based upon an innovative concept: An overdimensioned transformer and a diode bridge are placed upstream of the PFC decoupling stage, used to actively correct the power factor.
    The filtering is achieved with a bank of capacitors, totalling 300 000 μF. This supply concept, which ensures efficient energy transfer, allows immediate reaction on even the most abrupt transients.

    The Nagra CLASSIC AMP is fitted with a traditional Nagra Modulometer on the front panel, showing the power of each output channel.
    An LED is also fitted to indicate saturations, excessive temperature. The amplifier is equipped with balanced and unbalanced inputs and in IN/OUT trigger function. It can be used in a bridged configuration, giving 1x 200 W into 8 Ω, and can also be used in a bi-amplification configuration if desired.

    A new NAGRA!

    It produces the same “analog” sound as its bigger brother which is considered to be the standard in the D/A market by which all other machines are judged.

    The Nagra CLASSIC DAC

    http://www.nagraaudio.com/nagra-classic-dac/

    Identical digital input board and conversion module as the Nagra HD DAC, making use of the most advanced conversion techniques available today. The converter comes from a joint-venture with Andreas Koch, AKDesign, the pioneering engineer in the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) format, used in professional music studios. The circuits of the Nagra CLASSIC DAC use the DSD 2x version of the format, operating at a level 128 times superior to that of traditional CD and twice that of SACD.
    Sampling frequency up to 5.6 MHz. The internal calculations use 72 bit precision. This method produces a signal with such quality that the steep-slope input filters on the analog section can be eliminated. The result is that the harmonics and transients are perfectly maintained allowing the music to conserve its natural depth and essence.
    9 fets design topology emulate the sound of a tube providing a particularly warm and musical sound.
    Proprietary Nagra USB input handling signals up to DXD (384 kHz 32 bits) and DSD 2x, compatible with both PC and Mac computers.

    Analog section
    Output section based on a class A discrete transistor topology. It includes no less than 9 matched transistors, of military and high-end origins, per channel. Signal-to-noise ratio of the output stage boasting an impressive 145 dB (not weighted). A number rarely reached by any competing product at any price level. Simplified output stage compared to the Nagra HD DAC with no volume control or headphone circuit.

    Power supplies
    Carefully designed, built-in mains power supply including no less than 25 dedicated internal power supplies. In typical Nagra fashion, each stage is carefully decoupled to ensure the best performance. Nonetheless, the power supply can be further improved by the use of the Nagra MPS full-chassis power supply that connects to the Nagra CLASSIC DAC though a 12 V DC Lemo connector.

    Design and aesthetics
    Front panel with LCD screen so that each input can be named. All functions are accessible via the included remote control.

    Traditional Nagra Modulometer indicating the input level of the digital signal (one needle per channel). 0 dB FS corresponds to the maximum level on the scale.

    Same dimensions as the other elements in the Nagra CLASSIC range allowing for neat and aesthetic stacking in the building of a complete Nagra system from various components.
