Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 630-879-1286 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

High-Resolution Audio Stereo Amplifier

Sony TAA1ES

Features

  • High-Resolution Audio takes your digital music to another level. By converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CDs-24 bit/192 kHz, as opposed to the 16 bit/44.1 kHz rate of CDs-High-Resolution Audio delivers better-than-CD quality sound, so you get closer to the original studio master recording.
  • The amplifier has been fitted with a FET input buffer and discrete circuit for the pre-amp. This reduces the effects of distortion while enhancing the sound quality of High-Resolution Audio.
  • We've combined the electronic volume with a discrete buffer amp - co-developed with Sony - to enhance the overall sound quality by reducing the gain error experienced by conventional amps.
  • The built-in smart BIAS system controls the amp's BIAS based on the volume position. In doing so, the amp is able to utilize a field that experiences good transistor linearity without generating heat, so the sound quality always remains true.

High Resolution Audio High-Resolution Audio takes your digital music to another level. By converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CDs-24 bit/192 kHz, as opposed to the 16 bit/44.1 kHz rate of CDs-High-Resolution Audio delivers better-than-CD quality sound, so you get closer to the original studio master recording.

FET input buffer The amplifier has been fitted with a FET input buffer and discrete circuit for the pre-amp. This reduces the effects of distortion while enhancing the sound quality of High-Resolution Audio.

Optimum gain volume control We've combined the electronic volume with a discrete buffer amp - co-developed with Sony - to enhance the overall sound quality by reducing the gain error experienced by conventional amps.

Smart BIAS The built-in smart BIAS system controls the amp's BIAS based on the volume position. In doing so, the amp is able to utilize a field that experiences good transistor linearity without generating heat, so the sound quality always remains true.

Simplified power amp circuitry By including fewer transistors and eliminating the emitter resistor and coil & capacitor needed in the amp's final stage circuitry, we've reduced the distortion that affects the quality of your music. This means the amp can deliver a higher power output, so you can push up the volume and enjoy great, undistorted, High-Resolution Audio.

Make a secure connection Poor component connections can have a significant impact on overall sound quality. The new screw-type terminals and deluxe quality shaved pin, 0.71 in pitch jack ensure a tight, secure fit between the amp and your components, reducing the chances of sound degradation.

Independent HP-AMP To reflect the growing popularity of premium-quality headphones, this amp includes a specialized discrete amp with gain optimized to match headphone impedance.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
