The AX-505 is a stereo integrated amplifier that delivers 115W + 115W of output power but occupies just an A4-size footprint.
In the power amplifier section we’ve employed a cool-running and energy-efficient option, a TEAC-tuned Ncore module by Hypex from Netherlands. Its clear sound with low distortion and high Signal-to-Noise ratio reproduces Hi-Res audio content with true dynamism and musical verve.
In addition, the AX-505 also provides high quality headphone listening, via an integrated headphone amplifier, one that that supports ‘ground separate’ connection.
Admittedly more ‘eye-candy’ than a functional necessity, a pair of eye-catching level meters on the front panel track musical volume levels as they ebb and flow. The user experience is further enhanced by the presence of a well-damped volume control finished with a machined aluminum knob for precise volume adjustment. A Passive-cooling design, for completely silent operation, allows the listener to focus on their music without the distraction of irritating fan noise.
Combine this state-of-the-art stereo integrated amplifier with TEAC's latest standalone DAC unit, the UD-505, or the NT-505 USB DAC/Network Player and you can revel in all the benefits of high-spec, Hi-Res audio, such as DSD512 and PCM 768kHz content.
