Description
@
The Integrated Amplifier of PB series which upgraded AU-555 and renewed the description and the design.
The whole page consists of silicon transistors.

The SEPP-ITL-OTL scheme of the pure complimentary darlington circuit which adopted the silicon transistor as the power transistor is adopted.

In order that an electrolytic capacitor may avoid the ill effect which it has on a music signal, as much as possible, using a hardwired-connection circuitry, a capacitor is lessened, and a required fraction makes a circuit impedance high and is using the Mylar capacitor.
Moreover, electrolysis connected the Mylar capacitor to the surely required fraction in parallel, and has improved the high region property.

The triple tone control of Bass, Midrange, and Treble is carried.
Moreover, since it is an it1 step type control, a special NetWare program and a more exact correction of a room acoustic can be performed.

Especially a preamplifier part uses the low-noise silicon transistor sorted out, and makes the noise small.

All the amplifying circuits from the first rank to the final output stage are constituted from NF amplifier, and the frequency characteristic, distortion, and S/N are improved.

A preamplifier part and a main-amplifier part are detachable.

The ripple-filter circuitry which became independent, respectively is attached to the main amplifier and the preamplifier power source.
A hum component is intercepted completely by this and the power source is stabilized.

Two speaker outputs are carried.

Functionalities which can be simultaneously monitored at the time of a low NF type filter, a high filter, a loudness control, and a sound recording, such as a tapes monitor circuitry and a headphone termination, are carried.
