FEATURES AN AMPLIFIER WITH A FOUR-STEP GAIN LEVEL SETTING + FOUR OUTPUTS

The team at Astell&Kern realised the fact that to achieve the optimum potential and run the most sophisticated and power-hungry headphones a dedicated amplifier is essential. The ACRO CA1000 features an Amplifier with a four-step Gain Level setting that can run high-impedance headphones with a 15Vrms output level. All this without any deterioration of sound quality or distortion. The Astell&Kern ACRO CA1000 is equipped with balanced 2.5mm and 4.4mm and unbalanced 3.5mm and 6.35mm outputs, to accommodate a wide variety of headphones. Using ultra-small relay parts and circuits for each output, they are physically separated from each other to minimise any internal noise interference that can adversely affect the quality of the signal and sound.
