Prepare for the next step in auditory revolution with the musical and tonal genius of Phil Jones. Phil Jones’ achievements in audio engineering made him the ideal lead designer for AirPulse. Since 1994 Phil has been designing and producing AirPulse loud speaker systems that have won awards such as the Golden Sound Award for the best loud speaker developed in the last 100 years. Phil’s speakers have been used by legendary studios such as Abby Road Studios. Now, Phil aspires to bring about the next generation of sound with AirPulse.
The A80 cabinet is built with 18-mm thick high-strength MDF with beautiful walnut finish lto further reduce coloration.
|The cabinet interior is fully lined with professional waved sound absorption material.|
|Horn Loaded Ribbon Tweeter
The A80 Horn loaded ribbon tweeter it same as A100’s, the thin aluminum ribbon diaphragm has high sensitivity, superb transient response, extended frequency range and well-defined resolution.
The meticulously formulated horn shape produces directional and optimized high frequencies from the ribbon tweeter, so they are aimed at the listeners, minimizing unwanted effect from room reflection.
|4.5inch Aluminum Cone 30mm VC Mid-woofer
The Mid-woofer is a 4.5 unit with a hard anodized aluminum alloy cone suspended in a heavy, ultra rigid cast magnesium alloy frame.
The Proprietary Aluminum Alloy Cone (PAAC) of mid-woofer was designed from painstaking analysis of all types of cone geometry and materials using a Klippel Laser Doppler Interferometer.
The 30mm diameter voice coil is unusually larger than most loudspeakers of this size. It has been shown that larger voice coils have less power compression because they run at a cooler operating temperature.
|Ultra-Low Distortion Signal Processing and Amplification System
The entire digital system is built on a multi-core signal processor XMOS XU216, a 16-core powerful audio processor based on XMOS xCore200 architect, which is proud of having up to 2000MIPS processing horse-power.
|Full Digital Amplifier
The power amplification part is built with 2 pieces of TAS5754 Class-D amplifier from Texas Instrument. The up-to 192 KHz input sample rate support guarantees the entire link of digital processing run without any change of sample rate of signal. Its 768 KHz output PWM carrier frequency, twice to 384 KHz of traditional Class-D amplifier, is even more suitable to drive the high sensitivity ribbon tweeter.
|TRANSPARENT Internal Wiring
The A80 uses TRANSPARENT audiophile grade speaker cable made in the USA for internal wiring. Signals are transferred with utmost accuracy and minimum loss. With these cable, you are brought to step closer to music!
|Back Panel Control
Volume of the subwoofer can be adjusted by the master volume control. A80’s independent treble and bass adjustment function can help the user to easily set the brightness of highs-frequency and the amount of bass according to size of the listening environment.
The USB digital audio interface on the A80 supports UAC2 audio application which can hold an input sample rate up to 192 KHz. This audio application effectively avoids signal degradation and dynamic range loss due to the PC audio DA.
