Description
@
The Integrated Amplifier which aimed at the improvement in an audio property or an operationality by adopting a unique chassis structure.

In AU-9900, the preamplifier part and the tone control part have arranged a power part and power-source parts, such as a heat sinker and a power transistor, to the front panel side at the back side, and have adopted the divided layout.
This is the organization collected as an Integrated Amplifier of one set, after each functionality and operation have become independent, and the cross interferencee is reduced.

The right side panel of a frontside is equipped with input terminal groups, such as a player, the left-side side panel is equipped with the output-terminal group to the speaker, and the fluence of a signal system enables it to amplify to a smooth in the shortest path.
Moreover, the input terminal, the multiple contact switch, and the equalizer amplifier approached, shielding wire could be reduced, and the failure of the high region property by stray capacity is prevented.

The whole page hardwired-connection pure complimentary OCL scheme which has a differential-amplification circuitry in an input stage is used for a power amplifier part.
Moreover, the parallel push-pull circuit from which generous power is obtained by a low distortion is adopted as an output stage.

The input circuit of an equalizer part has 2 amplifier composition with the differential-amplification circuitry of dual transistor adoption of flat amplifier and an equalizer amplifier.
A RIAA correction is a CR+NF type which performs a high region and low-pass independently, respectively, and has obtained a more exact RIAA property and phase response.

In addition to the usual tone control, the triple tone control which can control a mid range is carried.
Moreover, a turnover frequency can be changed to low-pass [ three steps of ], and three steps of high regions with a tone selector.

The regulation is using the good and efficient toroidal transformer for a power-source part.
Moreover, a mass capacitor and a stabilized power source are combined and } power source stabilized to each block stage is supplied.

The temperature detection, the direct-current detection, and the ASO detection current limiter circuit are adopted as a protection network, and the speaker and the power transistor are protected to it.

A tone circuitry is passed and the tone-defeat switchpoint with which the flat frequency characteristic is acquired is carried.

A loudness-level-of-sound setups is possible to 0dB-10dB-20dB.

The tapes play circuitry of two circuitries, a tape-copy switchpoint, the tuner priority selector, a row / high filter, the muting switch, and an input impedance and a sensitivity changeover switch are carried.
