The VERITAS Monoblock Power Amplifiers , based on the Hypex Ncore NC1200, uses the most responsive power supply, for the fastest transients with quiet, black background. A custom power cord was developed by Waveform Fidelity and included with the VERITAS Monoblocks. Isolation is provided in many ways, and on the chassis with the included Stillpoints Ultramini Risers.
Audio Purity requires a very fast, responsive power supply, as well as removal of microphonics that smear the sound stage, bluring the image. How is this all done.

Start with a 66 pound of Aircraft grade 6061 solid aluminum block. Delicately machine the chassis from this solid block isolation chambers to limit any sonic interference and minimize vibrations. Keep the walls 1 inches thick, to limit and absorb vibration. The result is a solid chassis for the VERITAS Monoblocks that is a work of art and exquisite engineering.
The Hypex SMPS1200A700 power supply is one of the best power supplies available to provide clean power with the best transient response and quiet background. A linear power supply equivalent would have to be at least 50 pounds along for the power supply transformer and filtering capacitors, with a minimum chassis size of being 12” x 18 x 18, just for the power supply. This alone does not guarantee the linear power supply will match the sonic benefits of the SMPS1200A700. Along with the new level of Class D audio performance, the SMPS are taking the world by storm as well. As with all in the VERITAS Monoblocks, the best are used, in this case for the power supply, the SMPS1200A700 is the one to beat.
The signal paths are designed to be the shortest possible, giving you the cleanest audio signal possible. Longer cables typically use shielding. Excessive shielding introduces capacitances that slow the dynamics of the system, especially power amps, bloating the bass, smoothing transients and reducing the high frequencies. Keeping wires short removes the requirement for heavy shielding, and lets the speed, control, and dynamics of the sound come through the power amp unhindered.
Solid core wires have the higher frequency currents run on the edge of the wire, called skin effect. This causes roll off in high frequencies since the skin is smaller than the core. This tends to give a tube like sound or warm sound. To be Truthful, Audio purity requires that the components do not impart any coloration of their own to the sound. Litz wires solve this problem by having multiple smaller strands of insulated wire. The amount of "skin" becomes the same amount of the solid core for the required frequency range, giving a much wider linear frequency bandwidth. Litz wire is far more expensive and harder to work as each strand has to be striped and combined at the wire terminations. All audio wiring in the VERITAS is Litz Wire.
All wiring is done point to point and soldered for the best connections or screwed securely for the tightest connections. Audio wire for the inputs and the outputs is Cardas Litz Wire. The inputs have Cardas 19 AWG Litz wire. This wire is ultra-
The Mono blocks are a true fully balanced design with both input signals floating for a true balanced differential input, utilizing the Hypex Ncore NC1200. Enjoy the Power, Musical sound and speed! Typically balanced lines are used for long cables. However a Balanced Differential helps reduce the noise, regardless of cable length. Having a true balanced differential design is difficult and expensive. Other balanced amps and pre-
After exhaustive listening tests, Power cables from Waveform Fidelity were selected. The supplied Power Cord is a Waveform Fidelity HE MK III, that provides maximum performance of the Merrill Audio VERITAS Monoblocks with the best clarity and transient performance.
A synergistic fuse is used for the best power supply and excellent response. For the best flow through and contact, the fuse is soldered instead of a fuse holder.
Further chassis stabilization is provided to the chassis with Stillpoints Ultramini Rises.
All this as stardard onthe VERITAS Monoblock Power Amplifers that make it the best sonic implantation and value. Compare it for yourself and hear the difference.
That is pure music reproduction with every detail reproduced exactly as it is recorded, with the same transient speed of the instruments and sound stage it was intended to be by the recording engineer.
