A Truly Smart and High-Quality Hi-Fi System

ABLETEC Class-D Power Amplifier with Maximum Available Output of 120 W +120 W (4Ω)
We are devoted to finding high-output audio components capable of efficiently driving full-scale speakers while still achieving singular audio quality. For that reason, we specifically selected for our AX-501 the ABLETEC ALC0240 digital power amplifier for the AX-501. A maximum power output of 120 W + 120 W with low power consumption of 68 W (at max level) delivers powerful, convincing audio reproduction. This next-generation integrated amplifier consumes 0.5 W in power-saving mode.

XLR Balanced Input Terminals for USB DAC Balanced Connection
XLR balanced output terminals have grown increasingly common in recent years, moving beyond their niche of high-end hi-fi equipment even to compact USB DAC models. The AX-501 features XLR balanced input terminals that allow balanced connection to high-quality USB DAC equipment to cancel out external noise and achieve an unadulterated transmission of high-quality audio signals from the USB DAC to the power amplifier.

Fully-balanced Circuitry to Eliminate Unwanted Analog Circuit Noise
In addition to support for balanced connections, a fully-balanced approach for the pre-amp analog circuits supplies constant balanced signals through the entire AX-501 work-flow until they are input to the power amplifier. This configuration is highly resistant to external circuit noise.

CCLC System for High Linearity Headphone Output
The AX-501 features a headphone output with audio quality optimized for headphone listening, a feature increasingly popular in recent years. The CCLC (Coupling Capacitor-Less Circuit) system keeps the coupling free of capacitors; ensuring a stronger signal reaches the headphones to achieve accurate audio reproduction.

Large Capacity Toroidal-Core Power Transformer

An over-sized Troidal-core power transformer helps deliver high-quality sound without sacrificing energy-efficiency and the unit’s compact dimentions. Conventional diodes produce rectification noise that negatively affects the sound of other units. To combat this, TEAC installed Schottky Barrier Diodes to supply a cleaner internal current and reduce rectification noise
