“I have changed power stages, TT, D/A… you name it, but PSE10 remains trustworthy preamp for my system.” A. H.
The AA Compact series’ aesthetics and elegant look was a (hard) task to achieve, especially when taken into consideration that all models use tubes as voltage amplification and that some of them weight up to 25kg. The enclosure is made of extruded, 10mm thick aluminum (or brass in chromed version). The result of this is a concept that combines strength and acoustic stability with a minimalistic and elegant outer appearance. The power supply uses two toroidal transformers with electrostatic shield (for each mono section). All supply voltages are regulated and are time and amplitude delayed for smooth power up. The tube life span is in this way prolonged to over 10.000 hours.The AA PSE10 uses single ended class A topology from input to output.
The assembly of the unit is handmade; all components are tested for functionality and tolerances before being installed.
We are sure that such approach in design and building will give our customers great satisfaction while using and enjoying the music for many years!
