JBL celebrates its 75th anniversary with the SA750, an integrated amplifier with a classic design that evokes the company’s SA600 amp from 1960s. The alluring, teak-wood veneer side panels on the chassis convey a vintage vibe, but under the hood, this muscular champ is driven by 120Wpc of cutting-edge, Class G amplifier technology. The SA750 offers high-resolution streaming capability, wireless connectivity, and Dirac Live room-correction technology, making it an integrated amp that combines the great visual aesthetic of yesterday with the stunning sonic clarity of today. With its switchable MM/MC phono input, the versatile SA750 also helps you experience sterling audio quality when playing your vinyl.
The Roon-ready SA750 contains a high-resolution DAC and is built to stream music – at 24-bit/192kHz, with full MQA file decoding – using Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Roon, UPnP and the MusicLife app.
The milled aluminum front panel has an amber LED display screen, plus elegant dials for volume, balance and input. Additionally, there are heavy-duty switches for power, mute, direct, MC/MM phono, and Dirac Live room calibration. The front panel also includes a 3.5mm auxiliary input and 3.5mm headphones output, providing even more flexibility.
The SA750 can be connected to a network wirelessly or via Ethernet. Because it features five pairs of analog RCA inputs (including the MM and MC phono inputs), along with four digital inputs, the SA750 is ready for any audio source. Delivering 120 watts into eight ohms and 220 watts into four ohms, the Class G design offers incredible sonic detail. It operates as a Class A amplifier for low-level signals, then efficiently switches in an additional power supply, as needed, for large transients and dynamic waveforms.
Shipped with a calibration microphone, the SA750 comes with Dirac Live, which allows you fine-tune the output of speakers and subwoofers to address the subtle nuances of any listening environment and remove unwanted coloration.
The SA750 comes packaged with a power cord, a remote control with batteries, a setup microphone and a USB cable.
