Accuphase needs no introduction, they are after all the masters of Japanese Hifi electronics. 

The Accuphase E-380 amplifier features a reinforced power amplification stage and power supply system resulting in a 20% increase in power from its predecessor. The large capacity power transformer, along with high-current output transistors, enables the amplifier to deliver 180 watts into 4 ohms or 120 watts into 8 ohms per channel, ensuring that you experience an astounding audio performance with ease. 

Enjoy a musical performance of amazing transparency and dynamism.

The E-380 comes with a dedicated headphone amplifier optimized for sound quality so there is no need of a separate dedicated headphone amplifier.

Optional Boards

The Accuphase E-380 offers two rear panel expansion slots that allow for use of AD-50 (phono preamplifer) or DAC-50 (digital to analogue converter) option boards. These truly make the E-380 an amplifier for life. Additional inputs are easily added as they become available - please contact us if you are interested in these options.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this incredible amplifier or any other Accuphase products.

The amplifier features an advanced preamp section that employs Accuphase's AAVA volume control technology. This technology helps ensure a smooth and precise volume adjustment without any channel imbalance, providing a clean and natural sound. The pre-amplifier and power amplifier sections are entirely separated, you are able to connect E-380 with other separated systems.
