Model 404 Amplifier From Moonriver 

23rd September 2020

Designed and hand-assembled in Sweden, the Model 404 incorporates five separate power supplies

…and each features overload protection. The power amplifier specifically runs on a dual-mono configuration, via separate windings on the toroidal transformer.

Signal switches are implemented via relays, while volume attenuation is trusted to the ALPS controller.

The model 404 is an integrated amplifier featuring five inputs, one set of pre-outs, tape monitor and an optional USB DAC. 

An MM or MM/MC phono stage is also available. 

Prices start at £3,000 rising to £3,910 with a featured USB DAC and MM phono stage fitted. Each product is covered by a 3-year warranty.

Currently exclusively producing an amplifier, the Model 404, the range will soon be expanded to include a phono stage.
