The Inside Story
We mount the premium toroidal transformer centrally, to reduce flux or magnetic disturbance from the volume pot.
We use a Class AB amplifier design, a centrally mounted audiophile grade oversize toroidal transformer, and substantial extruded heatsinks. This allows the CXA60 to deliver 2 x 60 Watts RMS into 8 Ohms. Into 4 Ohms, this increases to 2 x 90W.
The internal PCB layout is optimised for minimal left/right 'crosstalk' and to maximise the quality of stereo separation. By entirely separating the left and right channel heat sinks, and using symmetrical and separated circuit paths for the two channels, we ensure that the CXA60 and CXA80 deliver stunning stereo separation and minimum cross- channel interference.
An ALPs film type volume pot delivers accurate volume control and superb low level channel balance.
