Integrated stereo amplifier with FET input buffer, SEPP hi-current amp and intelligent BIAS controlHigh Resolution AudioHigh-Resolution Audio takes your digital music to another level. By converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CDs”24 bit/192 kHz, as opposed to the 16 bit/44.1 kHz rate of CDs”High-Resolution Audio delivers better-than-CD quality sound, so you get closer to the original studio master recording. FET input bufferThe amplifier has been fitted with a FET input buffer and discrete circuit for the pre-amp. This reduces the effects of distortion while enhancing the sound quality of High-Resolution Audio. Optimum gain volume controlWeve combined the electronic volume with a discrete buffer amp - co-developed with Sony - to enhance the overall sound quality by reducing the gain error experienced by conventional amps. Smart BIASThe built-in smart BIAS system controls the amps BIAS based on the volume position. In doing so, the amp is able to utilize a field that experiences good transistor linearity without generating heat, so the sound quality always remains true. Simplified power amp circuitryBy including fewer transistors and eliminating the emitter resistor and coil @ capacitor needed in the amps final stage circuitry, weve reduced the distortion that affects the quality of your music. This means the amp can deliver a higher power output, so you can push up the volume and enjoy great, undistorted, High-Resolution Audio. Make a secure connectionPoor component connections can have a significant impact on overall sound quality. The new screw-type terminals and deluxe quality shaved pin, 0.71 in pitch jack ensure a tight, secure fit between the amp and your components, reducing the chances of sound degradation. Independent HP-AMPTo reflect the growing popularity of premium-quality headphones, this amp includes a specialized discrete amp with gain optimized to match headphone impedance.
