High-end Power Amp

The High-End Preamp preamplifier published in the April & May 2004 issues naturally calls for a matching final amplifier in an identical housing. Due to the restricted size of the enclosure, the output power of this final amplifier is somewhat on the modest side, but the quality is outstanding – and it is more than adequate for filling an average living room with an impressive sound image.

The Audio Link amplifier, published a year ago, was well received by audio enthusiasts due to its very convenient user interface and high-quality, no-nonsense signal processing A matching final amplifier must naturally have the same level of quality, and here we have made an extra effort to achieve this result.
