The Integrated Amplifier which adopted the current feedback magnification circuit as the power amplifier part.

The current feedback type magnification circuit which returns an output signal in the form of current is adopted as a magnification circuit.
A principle lowers the impedance of the input terminal by the side of a return, detects current, and carries out I-V conversion of the current with a transformer impedance amplifier, and it has the structure of making an output signal, and since the impedance of a return input portion is very low, it is difficult to generate phase rotation.
Thereby, in order that there may almost be no necessity for phase compensation, it excelled in dynamic characteristics, such as a standup, and the natural energy response is realized.
Moreover, high power has been obtained by it being parallel for an output element and adopting the power transistor for audios excellent in many characteristics, such as a frequency response, a current gain linearity, and switching, as it.

The large-sized power transformer of the large power capacity of about 500 VA(s) and the mass filter condenser of 22,000 micro Fx2 are carried in the power-source part.

Line amplifier is constituted from a discrete part and the differential pure complimentary push pull input of an Accuphase with original foundations and the output stage serve as finish which prepared the single エンデッド push pull type emitter follower.

In consideration of the characteristic of the cartridge of MC type and each MM model, the equalizer amplifier equipped with the input circuit for exclusive use is adopted.
At the time of MM input, since the Output voltage of a cartridge and the Output load impedance are high, it constitutes from an FET element which can maintain high input impedance over all the frequency standby.
Moreover, since a very small signal is received by low impedance, the difference input circuit by a low noise element is constituted at the time of MC input, and it is enabling little reproduction of noise by attaining low impedance-ization of a NFB loop.

Since it prevents that a signal deteriorates in the change of an input selector etc. and a straight signal course is constituted at the shortest, the logic relay control system has been adopted.
The relay currently used has adopted the encapsulated type for communication industry, and contacts are a plated with gold and a crossbar twin system, and have realized low contact resistance and quantity durability.

Two balance inputs are prepared and balance transmission is possible.

The small motor with quality volume and a clutch is adopted as volume control, and smooth operation is enabled.
Control of volume adjustment according to a motor by attached remote control and the input selector by a logic circuit is possible.

The changeover switch and the input-and-output terminal are carried so that a preamplifier part and a power amplifier part can be used independently.

The large-sized peak power meter which monitors output electric power is equipped.
The meter can check a large dynamic range at once for a logarithm compression type.

The large-sized speaker terminal which can respond also to a thick speaker cable is adopted.
This terminal can also insert a banana plug.
