Onkyo A-9050 Stereo Integrated Amplifier Announced

Onkyo just announced affordable A-9050 75-watts per channel stereo integrated amplifier featuring WRAT amplification boosted by Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry with premium DIDRC dynamic noise reduction technology. The A-9050 follows the A-9070 stereo integrated amplifier in the Onkyo integrated lineup–a high-end model that was released last year.

The A-9050 is built around a practically bulletproof 1.6 mm anti-resonant metal chassis with aluminum faceplates. Two large capacitors and a high-output EI transformer drive current through the amplifying circuit and discrete triple-transistor output stage for an open and musical performance. Solid copper bus bars provide each individual circuit with a unique link to the power supply, significantly reducing circuit noise compared to conventional circuit designs.

As an integrated amplifier, the A-9050 employs one of the most talented pre-amps in its category, with a powerful Wolfson 192 kHz/24-bit DAC module and DIDRC technology to cleanse signals of super-high-frequency noise and pulse interference that otherwise affects audio purity. Gold-plated RCA inputs and banana plug-compatible speaker posts also work to improve clarity.

Another unique feature found on this amplifier is Onkyo's new PM Bass technology, which counters audio phase shifting by matching the phases of low- and mid-frequency sound waves, thereby improving mid-range clarity and enhancing bass response.

The A-9050 feature five analog inputs and one output each, while the more powerful model of the pair adds three digital inputs for lossless PC audio (one optical, two coaxial). The user can connect a compatible CD player and tuner, and if desired, a tape deck. Naturally, a quality MM phono input and a subwoofer output are also included.

With the release of this new integrated amplifier, Onkyo hopes to make quality component audio a realistic proposition for a greater number of people. As the initial building blocks of a first hi-fi system, or to renew an existing setup, the A-9050 will reignite the listener's passion for music, creating a whole new generation of Onkyo fans in the process.

Price and Availability
The Onkyo A-9050 integrated amplifier will be available in October 2012 for $499. See more integrated amplifiers.
