With our new A10 CLASSIC amplifier, our aim was to offer an audiophile integrated amplifier inspired by the famous X-i1100, praised for its seductive musicality and liveliness !
The A10 is fully integrated into the future and easy to use. Although its classic design remains timeless, it combines a ECC81/12AT7 tube preamplifier with a 2x130W class AB push-pull amplifier. In short, the best of both worlds.
Modernity is also displayed thanks to a microprocessor which manages all the functions enabled by the central encoder, on which a long or short press allows to access the menus.
We can scroll through the inputs: 6 analog on RCA including an MM phono with three capacitance settings (100, 200, 320 pf), a symmetrical line on XLR, 5 digital including 3 optics, one S/ PDIF and one USB audio, plus a connector for a bluetooth receiver XFTB01 aptX or XFTB02 aptX HD. An USB-A accepts audio files MP3 from a walkman or a USB key.
Originality: two HDMI, including one for a DVD in order to benefit from the quality audio signal from the A10, and a HDMI ARC to connect a screen to CEC protocol, can be activated in the System Setting menu.
Here are shown also information about the system, speaker selection (A,B or A + B), loudness adjustment, serious, acute or bypass, the setting auto standby (or not) spread from 5 to 90 min.
The trigger In / Out command switching on and off the A10 at distance, or from it to another device connected by the minijacks.
The A10 offers the possibility of connect two subwoofers and output modulation separately on the preamp or amplifier.
A fixed output Rec Out is intended for a cassette player type recorder, MD, or whatever.
In back, the High Bias switch activates the polarization in class A on the former watts from the power stage.
The A10 wins all the votes, can even show to much more ambitious and expensive than him.
A great success in perspective !
