If you need to upgrade your present hi-fi system or building a new solid system for listening, you need to get a proper amplifier.  Treat your music the way music oughta be treated.  Do not buy cheap audiophile "junk" sold by some online hi-fi sellers.
.
.
 Sphinx Project Twelve is a true high-end hidden gems of the audio world.  Ideal for anyone wishing to start a serious hi-fi system.
.
.
Very rare and desireable amplifiers that are becoming extremely hard to acquire - much of the production was sold in the US and Europe.
.
.
These beautifully made and superbly musical Dutch amps have loads of power and excellent dynamics - ensures a vice-like grip and precise control of the loudspeakers. Sounds far more powerful than its rated 1 x 151 watts (per monoblock).  They possess a certain directness and presence that others simply do not have.
.
.
Built in The Netherlands by ex-Philips engineers, these hand-crafted monoblock amps were built with meticulous attention to detail - a commitment to the production of purist stereo audio equipment.
.
.
More than capable of outperforming some seriously expensive and top name amplifiers like Krell, Mark Levinson, etc.
.
.
Serial numbers: 12-402-00032 / 12-402-00032
.
220-240V  50/60Hz operation.

Condition wise they are very good, in lovely clean condition (as can be seen in the supersize pictures provided) and damage free - there are just a few light marks to the outer cases. They are in full working order - sounds absolutely fabulous.

The  Sphinx Project Twelve mono power amplifier’s most striking feature is the ease with which it delivers the most complex sounds to the most difficult loudspeaker loads.

.

.

.

 

The sound is always open and transparent but at the same time the sound field has an enormous ‘depth’. The sound quality is on par with those of much more exotic (and expensive) models on the market.

.

.

.

.

.

 

The design reflects the long experience of the Sphinx design team with specially selected power FETs. These have an extremely wide power bandwidth, a very high slew rate and an unequalled phase linearity over the complete frequency bandwidth. Each amplifier channel uses six of these 100 W FETs ensuring extremely high reliability.

 

 

 

Combined with the very ‘heavy’ power supply and its large energy buffer of 23,160 µF, this results in an effortless sound with a large dynamic range and unsurpassed transient response.

on the white paper (in the picture below) to validate the picture was not pulled from some other website or auction.

A monoblock amp can be placed very near to the speaker for the best possible "hi-fi sound".

 

.

.

.

The amplifier has numerous protection circuits to prevent all kinds of disasters: however none of these is placed in the signal path. So reliability and audio quality are guaranteed for countless years of musical listening pleasure.

.
The Project Twelve will drive every loudspeaker (even the most difficult ones like electrostatic and magnetostatic).

Review 1 of 1

Summary:
These amps are the works! I`ve heard amps that are just as nice and detailled in sound...but they had one sorry... TWO..Big problems compared to the Sphinx Project12 monoblocks.. First thing: They were much more expensive. Second:They were very big and bulky compared to the Sphinx. The sound of these amps are amazing... I use them to drive one of the [audio]worlds most difficult speaker ever created.. The ampkillers Infinity kappa 9 [0,8ohm@33hz]. I`ve seen amps go into clipping that are priced [16000Euros] with these speakers. The Sphinx Project12 are small, very small compared to other amps with the same power output.. They can control even the most difficult speaker around without even breaking a sweat. I currently using the yamaha mx-830 stereo poweramp on the lows[BI-AMPED]..the Project12 on the mid/high//everything sings now! No matter what the people say about yamaha...screw them...ik know how it sounds...PERFECT!

Strengths:
Clarity,power, most important CONTROL! They can drive every speaker around the globe without breaking up in clipping! [okay maybe the nautilus:-]

Weaknesses:
None...not even one. They are easy to move, not heavy at all! And the power is super!

Siltech cables and WBT-connectors and gold-plated spades, the cables were made of pure Silver made entirely by hand during the first five years of production. But later when the cost making by hands was just to expensive, the company switched to automated machines.  Up till today, Siltech brand of audiophile cables are sold worldwide.

I take pride in my packing.  I have packed a massive 200 lb./90kg. Krell KSA-300S power amplifier in a wooden trunk for international shipping via OceanFreight to my buyer in Barcelona, Spain.

The Krell power amp was sold for RM15,500.00.
