50W Stereo Amplifier with Direct Energy Design and Aluminium Panels
SIMPLICITY. FINESSE. PERFORMANCE.
The A-20 Direct Energy Design amplifiers with Symmetrical Construction offer class-leading, high quality sound, wrapped in understated, technical elegance.
The Direct mode disables excessive circuitry such as tone controls creates the shortest passing signal path and is one of the key aspects of the firmed circuit technique and this certainly has positive effect on clarity and purity of sound. The engineers used this method even with the power unit, placing it very near to the power transistors so that the energy goes to the powerful output cascade without delay.The phono circuit is complemented by other inputs for devices such as Smartphones to increase the music library.
The polished, brushed aluminum front panel comes with control knobs for Volume, Bass/ Treble/ Balance and Input Source selection. A range of tactile buttons finetune Loudness, Direct Mode and Speaker A/B. The rear panel provides immediate connectivity to Aux-In, Network, Recorder, Speaker A + B and 'Source Direct Mode' devices.
With the build quality and sonic performance we've come to expect from Pioneer presented in a package that mixes traditional hifi aesthetics with contemporary touches, the A20 is a truly desirable amp.
