Superb SS amplifier out of Denmark designed by engineer and electronic guru who is behind a lot of OEM work out of Scandinavia and Europe, Sonny Anderson. All the gain stages are “single gain stage” technology which makes them fast and stable. All nonlinear distortion components in the amplifiers are minimized by the use of “linearizer blocks”. The gain stages are JFET folded cascades and these gain blocks use the right blend of Jfets and Bipolar devices. The right blend gives combined with “Single gain stage” and our “linearizer blocks” maximum transparency and pitch black background at any volume level not only in the midrange but also in the highs and bass range.
The A2.120 power amplifier is based on the same gain stages as PD2 preamplifier making the sound signature identical to the PD2 preamplifier. The power supply is a high quality linear variety. SMPS were avoided as the bass performance from the amplifier was inferior to the linear power supply.
Our second goal was to make a timeless unit, both in the interior as well in the exterior. The exterior has clean Scandinavian lines, the interior is module based, so that we always will be able to offer upgrade on the products over the years.
Phison makes some of the finest SS gear around. Think Vitus but with better fabrication and parts and performance. If you like the Vitus sound but want an upgrade for less money, this is it. It is the best SS I have owned and I am selling simply due to an impending move and downsizing. My entire system is for sale at this time. I do recommend buying this amp along with the matching PD2 to optimize performance and I can offer both pieces at a discount if purchased together.
