Direct Energy Amplification
Pioneer’s Direct Energy Design is based on the Direct Energy Concept – lossless transfer of energy from the amplifier to the speakers. Using this philosophy, the integrated amplifiers feature optimized power supply/output circuit blocks and an enhanced part layout. This helps the amp reproduce clear sound with reduced distortion for an enhanced signal transfer and high S/N ratio.
Isolated Power Supply
The windings for the power amplifier, pre-amplifier, and controls are each separated inside the power transformer to help prevent mutual noise interference.
This playback mode bypasses all circuits other than the volume to provide a pure listening experience for your musical content. It features a finely tuned design to help enhance the musicality.
Anti-Standing Wave Insulators
These insulators feature a design with no parallel sides inside to prevent cavity resonance. This helps make sound localization, tone, and scale clearer while also contributing to a seamless connection between the channels and enhanced response to quick sound.
Non-Magnetic Speaker Terminals
The speaker terminals use non-magnetic material, which is less susceptible to external noise and transmits signals to the speakers at higher purity.
Phono (MM) Input
The A-10AE is equipped with a phono input terminal, letting you connect your turntable to enjoy your vinyl records.
The amplifier automatically switches to standby mode after 20 minutes without audio input or operation.
