SAE’s engineers developed the new MK One to deliver a remarkable gain of 19 dB Balanced output and 13 dB Single-ended output and a separate gain controlled Subwoofer output. Simply put, the uniquely impressive SAE MK One Pre-Amp and a 2HP-D amplifier combination will “Rock” your house like nothing else you’ve ever experienced!
In the 2016 October edition of Stereophile, Michael Fremer wrote “the SAE 2HP-D amplifier is one of the three best amplifiers I’ve ever heard, and the best for Rock and Roll!”
Following their perfected pairing of the new MK One with the 2HP-D in 2020, our SAE engineers say “You should Hear and Feel us now”!
The MK One’s Signal-to-Noise ratio is an astonishing -130dB, truly allowing audiophiles and music lovers to hear the space between the notes. Hi Res Audio with 120 dB dynamic range jumps out of the utter blackness, the listening experience is exhilarating.
The MK One has 4 single ended inputs and 4 fully balanced inputs to accommodate all of your high-resolution sources. The chassis is 3U tall and a perfect aesthetic match to other SAE components. Our ergonomically designed remote is easy to use and pleasing to hold.
In an effort to maintain that legacy sound from the late 60’s and early 70’s when Morris Kessler was the pilot of SAE, we designed the 2020 version of the MK One with the input, guidance, and the blessing of the original designer, Morris Kessler. Designed and Manufactured in the USA with a 5 year warranty.
