Kensonic Accuphase C-200
155,000 yen(August, 1973 release)


Control amplifier put on the market as the first phase of Accuphase series. The company name of those days was a Kensonic.

An equalizer circuit improves the nakedness characteristic before applying NFB (negative return) by the perfect push pull drive of a whole page direct connection system, and constitutes the high magnification circuit of fidelity.
Moreover, Class A drive pure complimentary was adopted as the final stage of an equalizer that it should correspond to the incoming signal of the large dynamic range, and high allowable input voltage is secured by adoption of a plus-or-minus 2 power-source system.
Furthermore, massive [ on music appreciation ] was thought as important and the low enhancement circuit is adopted.

When lowering the cartridge in which an output is extremely large to a correct level or carrying out the comparison audition of a cartridge using two lines, DISC1 and DISC2, the Attenuator which can carry out 10dB continuation variable so that each level can be united is prepared.
Furthermore, the input impedance changeover switch is prepared in DISC1, and three kinds, 47kohm, 30kohm, and 20kohm, can be chosen.
Moreover, the Subsonic Filter of 25Hz cutoff is prepared as an object for disc playback.

Right-and-left independent type tone control is carried, and the change of turnover frequency is possible at 200Hz, 400Hz, 2.5kHz, and 5kHz with low-pitched sound and each loud sound.
The change characteristic is ±10dB with the rotary switch of 11 contacts.

For the purpose of cutting a subsonic noise, the low filter of 30Hzor less 12 dB/oct is carrie
Moreover, in order to cut hysteresis noise, such as a tape, the high filter of 5kHz and 12 dB/oct is also carried.

Three input and output of a tape are carried so that three tape recorders can be connected.
Mutual dubbing of this inner 2 set is possible, and while making Koppies Izzi become independent and hearing sauce, dubbing between tape recorders in the state where it completely became independent is possible.

The exclusive amplifier of pure complimentary direct connection is carried only in headphone, and the sound quality of headphone is raised.

All the magnification stages are supplied from the power source made to constant-voltage-ize completely, and stability is raised.

When power amplifier is set to the place which is not accessible, the speaker changeover switch carried in the front panel can use an optional exclusive relay box, and can change a speaker system.
