amplifiersAAcento is the new integrated amplifier from Audio Analogue and the first product of the new PureAA line. This line has a simple philosophy: mix simple design and reference sound performances to create products with the best value for money available on the market.

100 watts into 8Ω to provide you with pure sonic bliss.  The AAcento has a MM/MC Phono input with switchable subsonic filter, Class A zero feedback Headphone Amplifier on board and a Direct Mode that allows you to use the integrated amplifier as a power amplifier in a home theater system.

Audio Analogue was born in the beautiful corner of Tuscany between Pistoia, Lucca and Pisa in 1995. The amplifier is fully MADE IN ITALY. The device is completely hand-crafted and tested with first-class instrumentation, but also and above all with listening tests. Discover new emotions while listening to your favourite music.

Available in Silver or Black.

Hifi Choice review - 5 stars

"The AAcento is an emotionally intelligent amplifier that gets the musical big picture spot on. It confirms that music should move you and isn’t just a set of frequencies. It absolutely doesn’t miss any detail, but instead majors on getting the meaning, drama and emotional story of your music correct. I sense a very gentle warmth that gives a pinch of richness and sweetness, yet vocals in particular seem as naturalistic as I’ve heard in a long time. This may well be an amp for those that think they want a valve set up, but know it isn’t practical. The phono stage is quiet and refined, but some might wish for a little more adjustment. Factor in a high-quality headphone stage and altogether this beefy yet chic, artisan-built, integrated amplifier adds up to be a highly addictive proposition that represents extremely good value for money"

Thanks to the cooperation with Airtech laboratories to develop Anniversary line, some key points and ideas in the design have been shared also in this new line and differently by the Anniversary line products, where each model is created to make in the best way only what it is created to do, in PureAA line the target is also to make products with more features in order to get the interest of those users looking for a wider range of functions and connections concentrated in a single product. This is easy to understand looking at below features description, as it is easy to understand that everything was made with extreme care and no compromise solutions almost impossible to find in products of the same category and price range

480W toroidal transformer especially designed for the AAcento, no global feedback connection neither in power amplifier nor in the preamplifier, digital volume control doesn’t make use of operational amplifiers Relay input selector circuits to minimize non linearities, SMD oversized resistors to minimize thermal induced distortion, MM/MC Phono input with switchable subsonic filter, class A zero feedback Headphone Amplifier on board, native differential input, Direct Mode to use the integrated amplifier as a power amplifier in a home theater system, microcontroller based equipment management, balance control, four different selectable volume scales
