MODEL 725 Mono Amplifier

The Model 725 features a unique composite circuit architecture incorporating separate Class AB voltage and current gain blocks with no overall negative feedback.

- Precision-machined chassis with integrated heatsinks, milled from a solid block of aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum, provides exceptional thermal heat transfer/dissipation, RFI/EMI shielding, and resonance control.

- All audio circuits are implemented on mil-spec, multi-layer, low dielectric constant, Rogers™ ultra-rigid ceramic circuit board substrate for extremely low energy retention and absorption. Large low impedance ground plane areas for extended internal star-grounding.

- Inherent cancellation effects of balanced topology implemented throughout all power and input/output circuits ensures greatly reduced distortion and noise under dynamic signal conditions.

- High current, dual polarity, ultra low impedance copper bus-bars distribute both power supply input current and signal output current, virtually eliminating intra-circuit EMI signal contamination, greatly reducing internal wiring, while increasing circuit board rigidity.

- Extensive use of Lead (Pb)-free, low temperature coefficient, active and passive surface-mount components results in significantly smaller loop areas, reduced circuit capacitance and inductance, and introduces less noise than conventional leaded components.

- Highly efficient, compact, light weight, 1500 watt DC switch-mode power supply provides optimum voltage regulation for all circuits and operating conditions, and allows for quiet operation over a wide range of AC mains power sources.

- Dual CE approved speaker output terminals require no tools for secure, low resistance connections, and allow for easy bi-wiring applications.

- Removable 3-point self-leveling Delron chassis supports provide high frequency mechanical noise isolation.

  • MODEL 625 S2

    MODEL 625 S2 Stereo Amplifier

    The 625 Series 2 incorporates many of the same technical features of the 725 amplifiers. Similar to the 725, the 625 S2 signal circuitry is built upon a Rogers ceramic circuit board laminate material for lower dielectric absorption and energy storage. The 4-Pole filter capacitors used in the 725 power supply have also been included in the S2, significantly reducing power supply output noise. The maximum output power has been increased from 300 to 325 watts per channel at 8 ohms.

    Precision LED based current sources have been implemented throughout the amplifier circuitry, along with 0.1% thin film SMD resistors for more stable operating points and lower noise. Custom designed Lundahl input transformers are implemented with a higher turns ratio and wound with Cardas high purity copper wire.

    Input circuitry includes an additional linear phase 2 pole filter to effectively attenuate all out-of-band signals from any source, including DSD spurious noise.Cardas gold/teflon/rhodium XLR input connectors are carried over from the 725. Newly developed error-correction circuitry has been incorporated around the entire amplifier, making a total of three independent error-correction techniques used to decrease all forms of distortion throughout the entire audio bandwidth.

    The Model 625 S2 delivers a sensuous grain-free musicality of unparalleled transparency and low level resolution that blossoms from a rich velvety silence and blossoms into the pure enjoyment of your listening experience.

    Daemon Integrated Amplifier


    Jeff Rowland Design Group launched the 1500 WPC Daemon Super Integrated Amplifier at Munich High End 2015. Named after the ancient Greek word for the power of “creative genius” and the spirit of “scientific inspiration”, the Daemon represents a technological leap forward as Jeff Rowland’s fifth generation of integrated amplifiers.

    The Daemon is one of JRDG's most sophisticated products to date. You’ll see much of it's DNA expressed in future products according to Jeff Rowland. The 1500 WPC dual mono integrated amplifier is machined from solid bars of 6061-T6 aluminum by Vertec Tool in Colorado Springs. Vertec has been sculpting Rowland products for over 25-years. Vertec’s creativity and expertise can be felt in the Daemon’s precision weighted volume bezel. Mounted between two industrial grade bearings, the volume bezel provides exquisitely tactile access to a 99.5 dB range in 0.5 dB increments.

    Jeff Rowland has partnered with Thomas Holm, designer of the Aeris DAC and Continuum S2 digital circuitry, to develop both analog and the digital circuitry for the Daemon. For ultimate isolation, the digital and analog power supplies are completely separated and have individual local regulation at point of load. 6-layer Rogers ceramic circuit boards are used throughout.

    The 7” x 5” (178 x 127 mm) Touch Screen Interface was designed in collaboration with Danish user interface design house Mjölner. The machined aluminum hand held remote incorporates the latest BlueTooth Low Energy technology, providing control for the most common device functions and permitting full navigation of the touch screen interface.

    The amp also comes with a fully isolated headphone amplifier and a 1/4” output jack integrated in the face of the Delrin base for easy access.

    The base itself provides excellent isolation for the Daemon on almost any surface, and milled with threaded holes accepting standard footers if desired.

    Optional features include: HDMI IN/OUT plug-in module; WiFi plug-in streaming module; and an internally installed MC/MM phono module. The firmware is updatable via a dedicated USB port. The Daemon’s universal auto-ranging power supply ensures trouble free operation throughout the world.

    Aeris DAC

    Based upon an asynchronous buffer, voltage controlled crystal oscillators and a 24 bit D/A converter under the precise control of an FPGA running proprietary algorithms.

    Nexus of time and space; dynamic gateway between digital and analogue worlds. HYBRID from Latin aerius – ‘air’ or ‘atmosphere,’ and late Latin aera – denoting an epoch from which time is reckoned.

    The Aeris is the product of a close collaboration between Jeff Rowland Design Group and Holm Acoustics, a Danish company founded by Thomas Holm that specializes in signal processing products for high end audio applications.

    The Aeris is much more than the successful result of a synergistic collaboration between the two companies. The high degree of complementary synergy between the two teams working in parallel can only be defined as a case of true organic design.
