Onkyo announced the A-9070 Integrated Stereo Amplifier for hi-fi newcomers and more seasoned music lovers looking to upgrade their equipment. The A-9070 amplifier offers four discrete modes — integrated amp, power amp, pre-amp, and split power/pre-amp — to provide great flexibility when incorporating other components into the hi-fi system. Alone, it provides ample power with a parallel push-pull amplification design, three-stage inverted Darlington circuitry, dedicated Wolfson 192 kHz/24-bit DACs for symmetrically designed L/R channels, and four large 15,000 µF capacitors.

To preserve signal integrity, the unit features DIDRC (Dynamic Intermodulation Distortion Reduction Circuitry). Closed ground-loop circuits and vibration-damping construction combine to produce clear sound across a wide dynamic range. An independent headphone amplifier, a phonograph equalizer, and gold-plated audio terminals/speaker posts are evidence of high build quality.
Onkyo thinks their new C-9070 CD player would complement the amp to make a great hi-fi system for those that value high-fidelity sound, intuitive operation and superb build quality.
Price and Availabilty
The Onkyo A-9070 Integrated Stereo Amplifier will available November 2011 for $1,299.
