A-S Series of Integrated Amplifiers
Each new integrated amplifier shares several key features with the 5000 Series, including toroidal transformers with drawn-out wiring to reduce energy loss, mechanical grounding to reduce unwanted vibrations and thick wires for ground connection for lower impedance. Every piece in the A-S Series exudes beauty as well as craftsmanship, mimicking the meticulous attention to detail of the inside with a stunning aesthetic design for the listener. Each model is available in black or silver, with polished piano black sides, featuring vintage-styled level meters and iconic knobs on the front panel for a stylish, elegant statement.
The A-S1200 adds silver-plated metal feet, a range of inputs (RCA x 4, MAIN x 1, Phono (MM/MC) x 1) and outputs (Rec Out, Pre-Out, Remote I/O) with a weight of 22.0 kg and measuring 435 × 157 × 463 mm (W x H x D).
The A-S2200 has a fully balanced circuit with floating amplifier design, silver-plated brass feet, a fully discrete headphone amplifier, inputs (XLR x 1, RCA x 4, MAIN x 1, Phono (MM/MC) x 1) and outputs (Rec Out, Pre-Out, Remote I/O) with a weight of 22.7 kg and measuring 435 × 157 × 463 mm (W x H x D).
The A-S3200 also has a fully balanced circuit with floating amplifier design to minimize ground noise, a fully discrete headphone amplifier and custom feet from the 5000 Series. It features high quality polyphenylene sulfide film capacitors, brass screws and gilding oxygen free copper terminals for block capacitor, larger level meters, inputs (XLR x 2, RCA x 4, MAIN x 1, phono (MM/MC) x 1) and outputs (Rec Out, Pre Out, Remote I/O) with a weight of 24.7 kg and measuring 435 × 180 × 464 mm (W x H x D).
Both the A-S2200 and A-S3200 incorporate the 5000 Series’ use of PC-Triple C, pure copper continuous crystal construction, internal speaker wires and found 22,000uF/63V block capacitors.
