Stereo power amplifier which carries a ClassAA circuitry.

Respectively different amplifier is made to take charge of voltage control amplifier and electric-current drive amplifier in a ClassAA circuitry. Thereby, voltage control amplifier was released from the current supply source, and the Low-noise-izing is realized by a voltage control being faithfully attained to an input signal. Moreover, electric-current drive amplifier was stabilized, and could supply the electric current required for a speaker drive, and the speaker drive capacity to have excelled is acquired.
In SE-A100, it has VC-4 composition which carries a total of voltage control amplifier and four sets of electric-current drive amplifier in each two right and left.

The Darlington stream composition which has an output transistor of a differential-amplification input stage and Pc150Wx2ch by a one chip Dual FET in voltage control amplifier is adopted, and it has become the perfect first class amplifier which realizes the super-low distortion for which the threshold of measured value is pressed.
Moreover, electric-current drive amplifier is the high-slew-rate swing amplification stage which allotted the bootstrap power supply an FET differential-amplification input and newly developed feed-forward type,It consists of output stages of Pc450Wx2/ch, and four-step Darlington using the output transistor of 3 parallel, and the large current for obtaining powerful power is supplied by 50 A/mu s.

Three transformer stream compositions are adopted as a power-source part, and the power transformer for electric-current drive amplifier of each right and left and the transformer for voltage drive amplifier on either side are carried. Moreover, in order to eliminate the cross interferencee of a right-and-left channel, the perfect symmetry construction is adopted. Furthermore, to the capacitor for power sources, it is total, and a 91,200-micro F electrolytic capacitor is carried.
While using an oxygen-free-high-conductivity-copper line for a power transformer, the high-density and the efficient technology by a full sort coil method are given, and the modification of the regulation is achieved. Furthermore, it is ~(ing) by the special resin in the magnetic shielding case of three-fold total, and ill effects, such as an equipment oscillation and a magnetic flux leakage, are stopped.

In order to stop that the electromagnetic radiation treating large currents, such as an output stage and a power-source part, from a section has an ill effect, the original concentrated power block which unified the output stage and the power-source part is adopted, and the influence of electromagnetic field is suppressed.

The top plate is considering it as a 2.3kg heavy weight class by 3mm thickness, and is suppressing the magnetic radiation and the equipment oscillation together with adoption of the 2mm thickness insulator rubber at the high-rigidity chassis of 2mm thickness, and the bottom face of a transformer.
moreover, the punching network with a high open aperture ratio is used for a top plate and a sole plate, and the radiator which determined form in a computer analysis, and a space at the bottom are secured -- the high heat-dissipation effect has been acquired with the large-sized foot (high and phi50mm) 21mm.

To the earth line, the oxygen-free-high-conductivity-copper bus bar of thickness 2mm.10mm width has been arranged, and the LC-OFC code is adopted as product-line material.

The electronic formula speaker selector is adopted and the golden cladding contact is used for a switching relay. Moreover, the last one memory functionality in which after the power source off holds the description of a selection is equipped.

The large-sized power meter which can carry out the Direct reading of from 0.0001W to 300W is carried.
Furthermore, the bronze glass of 10mm thickness is used for a front.

VC-4 indicator which can check an operation of voltage control amplifier and electric-current drive amplifier is carried.

DC / normal 2 way input terminal is carried.

The outer-diameter phi7.4mm very-thick cable which used 50 core oxygen-free-high-conductivity-copper line is adopted as the power cable.

The oxygen-free-high-conductivity-copper pin code with a gilding termination is attached.
