Most Wanted Componenet - Stereo Times
This powerful amplifier (500W into 8 ohms, 900W into 4 ohms) is the most consistent amplifier I have ever heard. Regardless of the load it performs equally well at all frequencies and never shows strain. At the same time its transparency and low noise floor allow it to fully reflect the character of upstream components and subtle nuances and harmonics. To accomplish that, Roger Sanders developed (patent pending) a voltage regulated power supply that maintains a stable voltage regardless of load or reasonable changes in the line voltage.
 
MAGTECH is a power amplfier designed specifically to drive electrostatic speakers and  other very difficult Loads including Planar & conventional magnetic speakers
The magnetic speaker differ from electrostatic speakers in a fundamental aspect , they require very high amonts of current and power
 
Magtech power amplifiers feature a fully regulated power supply for very high stable power outputs under all loads and conditions  
Sanders has developed a voltage regulator which is essentially 100% efficient. There is no heat from the voltage regulator.
 
No switching  high power / high voltage that generates heat or RF problems. Very small power consumption allows the Magtech to run
virtually stone cold and be left constantly powered without the worry of large power consumption.
The power amplifier uses advanced  technolgy capable of driving the most difficult loads without protection circuits that degrade sound quality
 
The Magtech is the only amplfier in the market that has a linear voltage regulation . The result is a compact but powerful amplfier 
that is ideally suited to drive the most difficult  loads down to 1/3 rd of a ohm. 
Magnetic , Electrostatic & Planar speakers can be driven with effortless power  to give true lifelike dynamics and power

Sanders Magtech TAS Review
Not around long enough yet to have had much influence, but give it time. This amplifier offers a unique mode of operation and not just the promise but the reality of an all but unprecedented ability to drive difficult loads playing demanding music with uncompromised sound quality. Analog amplification lives!

Dagogo Review
I wandered into the Sanders Sound room at the 2009 THE Show, sat down and waited while Sanders was answering someone’s question. When the music started, almost immediately I reacted with amazement. They were very dynamic, imaged, and mated the woofer with the electrostats seamlessly. I chose this suite as one of my top ten notable suites in my show review. Unfortunately for me, another Dagogo reviewer was also impressed and had gotten the right to do a review. But I learned that the developments that underlay the Sanders amp driving these speakers had also resulted in an amp for magnetic driver speakers. It is this Sanders Magtech amp that I am evaluating here." . . .
We are proud to say that Norm bought the Magtech instead of returning it after reviewing it.

 

Designed then for musical appreciation rather than to impress your friends the fait accompli is this – it is like you haven’t got an amplifier in the system at all – it’s so neutral and ‘invisible’ sonically. Designed to maintain the integrity of recordings, the acoustic energy propagates so naturally that the mechanics of the reproduction cease to intrude. Moreover the lack of dynamic constraint and superb localisation of instruments and / or actors makes the whole reproduction of the experience much, much more convincing and in this regard the Magtech will tell you more about the music on your records and how it got there than any number of highly touted and priced alternatives. Those of us that work for a living have reason to rejoice, for the unflappable and unobtrusive Magtech stereo power amplifier serves to prove that simply spending more money on something (much) more expensive is even less of a satisfaction guarantee than it ever was.  Recommended.
 
I have reviewed many high-end products of all stripes over the years, with many claiming all kinds of bullshit innovations. But the Magtech is the real deal, a truly astonishing device.  Sanders has hit one out of the sonic park with this bad boy.
 
According to Roger’s white paper, “In the Magtech's voltage regulator, you will not find any waste heat.  It will pass virtually all of the watts put into it on to the amplifiers.“  This translates into a rated power of 500W/Ch into 8 ohms, and 900W/Ch into 4 ohms.
 
In truth, you could probably plug it straight into Hoover dam’s main power outlet and frigid tons of megawatts would come gushing through. And unlike other amplifiers, the distortion in the Magtech amplifier is virtually unchanged regardless of power level.  The bias is stable regardless of load.
 
But what’s really incredible about the Magtech is its clarity of sound. Not like transistors, not like tubes, but something altogether different.
And when you hear it, you go, yeah, that’s absolutely right.
