    High-Resolution Audio

    High-Resolution Audio

    High-Resolution Audio takes your digital music to another level. By converting analogue music to digital at a higher rate than CDs – 24-bit/192kHz, as opposed to the 16-bit/44.1kHz rate of CDs – High-Resolution Audio is able to deliver better than CD quality sound, so you can get closer to the original studio recording.

    FET input buffer

    FET input buffer

    The 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 control

    Optimum gain volume control

    We’ve 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 BIAS

    Smart BIAS

    The built-in smart BIAS system controls the amp’s BIAS based on the volume position. In doing so, the amp is able to utilise a field that experiences good transistor linearity without generating heat, so the sound quality always remains true.

    Simplified power amp circuitry

    Simplified power amp circuitry

    By including fewer transistors and eliminating the emitter resistor and coil & capacitor needed in the amp’s final stage circuitry, we’ve 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 connection

    Make a secure connection

    Poor component connections can have a significant impact on overall sound quality. The new screw-type terminals and deluxe quality shaved pin, 18mm pitch jack ensure a tight, secure fit between the amp and your components, reducing the chances of sound degradation.

    Independent HP-AMP

    Independent HP-AMP

    To reflect the growing popularity of premium-quality headphones, this amp includes a specialised discrete amp with gain optimised to match headphone impedance.
