Precision Stereo Control Center
Accuphase make some of the finest equipment in the world and we can't recommend them highly enough. All of their components will deliver a marked improvement to any system and are a fantastic base to a new build or an unparalleled upgrade to an existing one. Accuphase amplifiers will deliver all the power you need with very low noise levels.
The Precision Stereo Control Center C-2420 reflects the refined sonic sensibility of Accuphase while incorporating advanced technology features developed for the C-3800 and C-2820.
Ever since being first introduced in the C-2800 preamplifier in 2002, AAVA technology has been continually refined and improved, while of course retaining the underlying principle.
The C-2420 features separate power supplies for left and right channel, each with a dedicated power transformer, filtering capacitors and peripheral circuitry. Modular units for the line input, balanced input, AAVA, and other circuit stages are arranged separately for left and right channels, to eliminate any risk of unwanted electrical or mechanical interaction between the two stereo channels.
A range of sophisticated option boards opens up even more possibilities. The newly developed Digital Input Board DAC-40 features a USB port and support for high-bit, high-sampling frequency signals up to 192 kHz/24 bits.
The newly developed Analog Disc Input Unit AD-2820 is also available, ideal for high-grade reproduction of analog records using either MC or MM phono cartridges.
