Description
 
The Integrated Amplifier which adopted DC scheme.

DC scheme is adopted as a power amplifier part.
Dual FET to which the property was equal is adopted as the first rank of DC power amplifier part, and the pure complimentary OCL circuitry and the conjointly excellent tone quality are realized. Moreover, about the drift of the middle point potential which poses a problem with DC amplifier, a power supply variation is suppressed in each stage, a pair property is raised, and the stability is improved.

Taking advantage of the merit of the tone quality of Class-A amplifier, AB class operation method which can acquire the Oide power is adopted.
Usually, it is a Class-A operation at the time, and it changes to B class operation automatically at the time of the Taishin number which needs big power.

The low distortion is realized by investigating thoroughly until it results in the design of the printed circuit board, or a placement of a shielding code including a material or component partses.

As a protection network, the electro carry control ASO (area of safe operation) circuitry and DC feedback power limit circuitry are carried. The electro carry control ASO circuitry has protected the transistor and speaker of amplifier by relay operation. Moreover, the DC feedback power limit circuitry operated quickly to the overload, and has protected the transistor.

The peek indicator by light emitting diode is carried. 13 light emitting diodes per channel were adopted, power was transposed to digital one, and the quick window is realized.
Since the sensitivity switching (-20dB) organization and the off-switchpoint are equipped, it reads easily also at the time of a small sound volume, and the indicator window can also erase an indicator, when unnecessary.

MC head amplifier is carried.
The head amplifier adopted as RA-2030 has adopted the three-step parallel coupled circuitry by low-noise FET as the input unit.

The two-step DC difference input circuitry by low-noise FET is adopted as an equalizer-amplifier part, and the property which was excellent with the stream composition which made the output stage the push pull has been acquired in it.

A load impedance can also adjust three steps and three steps of additional capacitance, and man-month cartridge can do nine kinds of combination in total.

The recording selector is carried and the output signal to a tape deck can be chosen regardless of the sound which comes out from a speaker.

DC amplifier scheme is adopted as a tone control circuit. Moreover, it is possible to cancel a tone circuitry and to also make it operate as flat buffer amplifier with a tone-defeat switchpoint.

The Subsonic Filter and the supersonic filter are carried.

The termination by which the gilding treatment was carried out is adopted.

The front panel serves as EIJ specification rack-mounted type.
