The Integrated Amplifier which compiled the design know-how of the Integra series into one book, and put into practice and investigated the tone-quality intention.

The original super current amplifier stream composition of Onkyo is adopted as a power amplifier part.
With this amplifier, the Bi-MOS drive scheme which performs a voltage-electric-current translation in the preceding paragraph of an output stage is adopted, and it is an electric current with current-drive amplifier. - The stable and linear amplification is realized by carrying out current amplification.
Current-drive amplifier is not influenced by the voltage -> electric-current transfer characteristic of a transistor like the conventional output stage, but it has electric-current amplifier composition which supplies the output current to a speaker in proportion to the electric current sent from the front stage, and excels in a linearity, and there is also no variation by a temperature.
Moreover, the Bi-MOS drive scheme adopted as the preceding paragraph,In a small electric-current area, the property of a riser curve with loose MOS FET is shown, and the comfortable and linear property of a bipolar transistor becomes dominant in a large-current area in the circuitry using two elements, MOS FET and a bipolar transistor. Thereby, the property very near a linear line was acquired in the crossover area, and the linearity property which has an elongation also in a large swing area is realized.
Furthermore, as for this power amplifier part, + side / - side serves as a perfect symmetrical whole page push pull specification, and the current-drive amplifier stage of the last stage following the differential-amplification stage of the first rank, a pre driver, and the Bi-MOS drive stage has 3 parallel composition.

The twin monophonic stream composition of the right-and-left independency was adopted, the small signal block was put on the central part, and the power part / power-source part treating a large current are arranged right and left.
While this suppresses the cross interferencee by the electromagnetic waves from a large current, shortening of signal transmission distance is attained.

The LASER transformer which reduced the magnetic leakage flux emitted to a perimeter at a power-source part to about 1/30 as compared with the conventional transformer is carried in each one right and left a total of two pieces.
Moreover, the interference between each stage is eliminated by making the sub- side coil of a power transformer become independent in the object for power amplifier, the object for EQ amplifier, and protector circuitries, and also carrying a subtransformer in microcomputers.

The chassis structure was made into 3LOAD-RESISTOR-BOX structures, the power-source part and power part treating a large current were stored in right and left, the input unit equalizer amplifier which treats a minute signal to LOAD RESISTOR BOX of the central part, and the preamplifier were stored, and the cross interferencee is eliminated.
Moreover, the bottom chassis is also divided into three in all at this, and the interference by a chassis electric current is suppressed.

In order to aim at shortening of signal transmission distance, and a simple transmit, the multiple contact switch of a motor drive is arranged near the input pin jack, and the volume has also arranged the independent 4-unit type of a shaft drive near the selector, and has connected signal transmission distance at the shortest.

Low-impedance-ization of a circuitry is realized by adoption of the twin roll chemicon of a high quality and a low-impedance, and the high-speed diode and 70-micrometer Copper-foil printed circuit board.

The specific technology of Onkyo, such as a delta turbo power source, a pre / power part independent super servo amplifier, is adopted.

Functionalities, such as a Source-Direct switchpoint, a direct tone circuitry, a tapes value monitor, MC2 position cartridge selector, and a charge noise filter, are carried.

The remote control which can operate a power source, a volume, an input selector, and a muting by a hand is attached.
The volume and the input selector adopted the motor drive scheme, and have prevented nonlinear distortion generated with a semiconductor switchpoint etc.
