AIME SE-P11

Launched at the tail end of 2017, SE-P11 Multi Curve Phono Amplifier marks a significant upgrade to its predecessor SE-P5. Key new features of the new SE-P11 are Balance and RCA output, 4 equalization curves, invert / normal phase, MM / MC switch, mono and stereo option and 500VA power supply unit.

SE-P11 Multi Curve Phono Amplifier is produced in small numbers and sonically superior to mass industry products. SE-P11 offers both  MM or MC options. To maintain very low noise, quality electronic components were hand picked to build SE-P11. The chassis is fitted with isolation feet to reduce vibration. The chassis is made from solid aluminium (up to 6mm thickness) to shield electronics from magnetic field interference. SE-P11 has user selectable gain settings. These settings are easy to select by user simply by placing 2 pin jumper found on printed circuit board.

Each SE-P11 comes with a dedicated 500 VA power supply unit and a remote control. The power supply is a heavy unit in a solid aluminium box fitted with a large low noise toroidal transformer.

The SE-P11 has been designed and made to provide audio enthusiast the equalisation control and at the same time delivering sound clarity, wide sound stage and sound dynamics from playing your records.

Note : SE-P11 supply voltage is 230-240V 50Hz.

Why Multi-Curve Phono Amplifier?

Recording curve is one of many variables found when playing records . The other variables are rotational speed, groove, stylus size, record thickness, surface material, groove cutting direction and diamond profile etc.

The recording curve for phonograph records was not standardized until 1958, and was not universally accepted until 1975. Before that, each company selected the curve that they thought would provide the best possible recording. Because of this disagreement between record companies, you must know how to equalize records made before 1958, and some re-issues and foreign records made after that.

There are several phases in the history of recording phonograph records. Each phase has its own set of recording characteristics.

You can find information on wikipedia for a more detailed research of each phase history of recording phonograph. One of many useful link is https://midimagic.sgc-hosting.com/mixphono.htm

    Just letting you know how the SEP11 is performing. At first i thought it sounded bright. AIME suggested i used 220ohms input resistance. I also configured input cap to 100pf and strapped gain for second highest. I think it sounded good now. Compared to what i had before the sound seems a little forward. Soundstage reproduction is probably as good as my setup allows but obviously depends on recording. Bass is tight. High freq like cymbals and triangles are fast and accurately placed. Female and male voices do come through nicely. I think there is appreciable warmup time. I have been listening to various material with the SEP11. Must say i’m pretty impressed.It handles transients and dynamics very well. I’m not sure much effect the Siltech cables have but i notice bass is tight. Midrange bloom is not so noticeable but it’s probably because cable is not run in yet.
