The Integrated Amplifier with DAC
The PA 1100 E was developed for customers who are looking for an amplifier with various digital inputs, but who no longer need a CD drive. It was designed as a stand-alone unit and is not suitable for operation in combination with the MP 1000 E multi-source player. However, the PA 1100 E is equipped with the high-quality D/A converter of the MP 1000 E and has also been fitted with an HDMI input. When a TV is connected, the volume can be conveniently controlled via the TV remote control. All the sub-assemblies of the PA 1100 E are identical to those of the integrated amplifier PA 1000 E, and for this reason it shares exactly the same acoustic performance and characteristics. The sole difference lies in the inputs: one of the PA 1000 E’s symmetrical inputs has been replaced by a digital input board. This board operates completely autonomously from the rest of the machine, and separate voltages are fed to its digital and analogue sections. The board is fitted with its own micro-processor which assumes full control of the digital inputs, filters and converter. For this reason it has no influence of any kind on the analogue signal processing and sound qualities of the PA 1100 E. The high-quality Bluetooth® module provides music transfer from mobile devices at superb aptX™ quality.
