Audio Analogue AAdac
Four years ago Audio Analogue celebrated its twentieth birthday with a handful of brand new Anniversary editions of the company's earlier classic amplifiers. Then the brand launched its PureAA line of products, drawing key ideas from the Anniversary amps and adding a raft of further features. Third in the line, following the AAcento amplifier and AAphono, is the new AAdac.
The new AAdac is the latest product of PureAA line. Just like the AAcento and AAphono, it is a product that perfectly fits in the Audio Analogue philosophy: its simple design, its remarkable sound performances, and its great care for the finish and for the materials and parts selection, make it a perfect partner for your digital sources. AAdac has a wide variety of functions and entering the set-up it is possible to regulate the led intensity, to change the balance of the channels, to select one of the 7 different digital filters, and to set it to volume regulated mode to let it work as a preamplifier.
Audio Analogue's PureAA line aims to draw on some of the key ideas and features of the Anniversary amplifiers but to apply them in a slightly different way. While the Anniversary amps are masters of minimalist focus, the PureAA line sports a set of added features designed to appeal to music lovers who seek a wider range of functions and connections in a single product.
The new AAdac's simple design, combined with its attention to detail in materials, parts, and finish, make it the perfect partner for your digital sources. Its wide variety of flexible functions include the ability to select one of seven different digital filters, to set the unit to volume regulated mode to allow it to operate as a preamplifier, to change the channels' balance, and even to regulate the brightness of the LED display. The AAdac is available in black or silver, priced at €3999. Info and photos by Audio Analogue.
