SANSUI AU - α 505 rx
¥ 50,000 (Released in September 1997)
A pre-main amplifier with newly developed audio elements mounted on the output stage.
In the conventional case, the temperature detection and correction circuit is connected externally to the power transistor. This causes a loss in time for heat transfer, causing the operating point to fluctuate. This causes a difference in the amplification factor with respect to the music signal, causing distortion especially at small signals.
However, the output stage is equipped with a newly developed SAP (transistor with temperature compensation function) audio element with built-in temperature detection and compensation circuits, and temperature compensation is performed almost in real time. As a result, the operating point dynamically follows the strength of the music signal.
Since the distortion factor does not vary depending on the output, the bare characteristics at low to medium volume are stabilized.
The well-balanced layout of the transmission and amplification circuits reduces various adverse effects on sound quality, such as signal jumping in the circuits.
In order to realize purer music playback, we adopted Source Direct, which minimizes the signal transmission path.
It is equipped with 37 key unified remote control as standard for improved operability.
