Story

 

storia 1




Pathos Acoustics was founded in 1994 by three Italian pioneers: Gaetano Zanini, Gianni Borinato and Paolo Andriolo, in the Italian city of Vicenza. A sophisticated city in northern Italy, famous for its great monuments designed by architect Andrea Palladio. The tradition of making something outstanding has continued since the days of Palladio. Today the focus in the area is on metal production, jewellery and fashion. This city still promotes innovation and invention just as it was used to at the time of Palladio. Pathos combines past, present and future, making hi-fi jewellery small monuments. Highly technological, and with designs and sound that leave no doubt – these products offers something absolutely unique.






The idea

storia 2

Pathos story started in 1994 by a "coincidence". Gianni Borinato had an idea of a new amplifier circuit and he asked his two friends Paolo Andriolo and Gaetano Zanini to help him exploring the opportunities of this technology. So they manufactured the very first prototype; as Gaetano owned a high-end shop in Vicenza, they had the best possibilities for testing and benchmarking. At first the three pioneers thought that the amplifier they used as reference was broken - but the fact of the matter was the new circuit provided outstanding sonic performances, straight from the very first prototype. Doubts were first instilled, but this amplifier was too good not to be produced. In other words, Pathos was born in order to develop and to spread a new amplification circuit called INPOL (Inseguitore a Pompa Lineare = Linear Pump Tracker). INPOL is Pathos property and the circuit holds a Worldwide Patent.

 


Design and production

 

storia 3

 

Paolo, who has a passion for industrial design, started to create the look. The result ended up as the T.T. – hailed by many to be the most beautiful amplifier ever produced. One of the few hi-fi classics of its time – a living legend. Gaetano started up the production, making no compromises on components and materials. Along with the technical innovation, the design and high finish of the products are very important as well. Through the years the idea “uglier they look and better they sound” has been pretty common within the audio business. Pathos proved they were all wrong. Pathos products speak to many of our senses – anyone can appreciate them every day. Just a look at a Pathos product is enough to make the customer feel, that he/she purchased something exclusive. Sometimes it is better to listen with your eyes open. All Pathos products are hand made in Vicenza (Italy) by following a long tradition of Italian craftsmanship. Only the finest selected components are used to ensure a peerless quality; all products are taken through a careful test-program to guarantee their quality. Unique products deserve unique treatment.




A new opportunity for the market

 

storia 1





The Pathos company was born, but it was not an easy release, considering the market in which it was going to work. The audio branch is notoriously known by the presence of thousands of brands, it is a small and hard business. But for sure there was – and there is – enough space for a brand offering innovative solutions and extraordinary designs. The hi-fi industry needed somebody who dared to follow “the unorthodox approach”. Pathos was therefore founded in the knowledge, that there is enough space for those who have something authentically new to introduce, in that exciting search for the maximum fidelity in the reproduction of music.







A new philosophy

 

storia 3





The PHILOSOPHY that accompanies Pathos brand, "the unorthodox approach", effectively created the benchmark of the business philosophy. The Pathos approach to the reproduction of music does not know dogmas or rules, but the goal is clear: to reproduce music in the most authentic way. Making products similar or equal to those already existing on the market does not fit to Pathos philosophy: every unit planned and manufactured by Pathos must enclose technological innovation, (not innovation as technical exercise!) but something able to offer real advantages for the fulfilment of the early aim: “faithful reproduction of music”.







Present

 

storia 3








At the moment Pathos is known and appreciated worldwide – as a manufacturer of high quality amplifiers. These products have received several international awards and positive feedbacks from the press. Headquarters have been changed twice within the last ten years, in order to follow the increasing demand. There has been a steady growth and the product range has been extended. Pathos is in the middle of a heavy development, which is bringing several new products. The INPOL circuit has “evolved” and still nobody has come up with a better approach to amplifiers manufacture. INPOL-circuit is made to convey the sound in the best possible way.











Future

 

storia 3





Pathos factory is five times bigger than before. This allows us separating our work: one department is specialised in woodworking, another one in metal processing and so on. And the laboratory will be even bigger, as Pathos will focus more and more on technological innovations in the future. Thanks to the new projects “the unorthodox approach” will keep on amazing both ears and eyes. It is all about passion.

  3. Key Spec

classicone conceptAfter having won over the international audiophile community with state-of-the-art reference amplifiers, to conceive a product with a set price point as the main design limit has been a true challenge to Pathos.
The Classic One project was initiated to transfer, in a more affordable amplifier, all the know-how and expertise acquired developing reference products.
Classic One represents a new standard in its price category: it success fully blends in a single chassis a preamplifier and power amplifier, completely separated from each other and provided with their own individual power supplies.
The pre-stage - or, better, the preamplifier - is purely tube, balanced, pure Class A, extremely low noise, with high intrinsic linearity and without any feedback. It provides an exquisitely tube sound in terms of transparency, air, harmonics and refinement… in one word, musicality.
The power stage is a solid state power amplifier, high bias current, Class A/AB in order to adequately drive every load. It provides the sound with speed and dynamics, without influencing the tube nature of the sound. The volume control is motorised and remote controlled, the remote itself is in solid wood. Power supplies are over-dimensioned and stabilized. Selected components, pure silver Pathos signal cable wiring, gold plated terminals, high quality materials and refinement at its highest standard are additional benefits provided with the Classic One.

Together with such sound performance and overall quality, the Classic One is offered at a price that clearly demonstrates a philosophy of value for money. This is possible thanks to an aimed design approach, coupled with extremely accurate engineering and superior aesthetic form.

classicone caratteristiche

Innovations about the new Classic One MKIII :

1- We used an high quality op-amp to drive the mosfet power amplifier. It is an ultra low noise, high?linearity and very low distortion op-amp. More definition on the sound and clearer. You'll immediately appreciate its superior sound.

2- We used a new volume control with Burr-Brown which is more linear and it can accept up to +/-12V audio signal. In this way we avoid the input saturation when the CD player has high voltage output (5V). There is also a new power supply.

3- We added a particular electronic stage to protect the power amplifiers against short-circuit on the speaker connectors. This particular network is an high impedance stage that feels the current and save the output stage when a short circuit happens.

4- We used a new high quality speaker connectors that are completely protected with a transparent plastic, in order to avoid short circuit.

5- We used a new stainless steel cover for the power transformer.

6- New power transformer which can work up to 130Vac , so it is less sensitive to the different voltages in the US territory. We also are also supplying an additional set of spare fuses.?We use chromium plated knobs and red paduk wood for front panel.
