Excellent Musical Fidelity A1008 Integrated Amplifier for sale. Original owner, demo unit purchased from local authorized Musical Fidelity dealer. Hybrid design with 6922 tube preamp stage and powerful solid state amplification. Has an excellent integrated DAC and MM/MC Phono stage. Original remote, Power Supply Unit interconnects and power cord included.
The A1008 is a 250 watts per channel remote controlled, two box design, with the second box housing a very large choke regulated power supply to keep all magnetic interference away from the amp stage and DAC. The main chassis also houses a very fine 24 bit, 192k upsampling DAC that is comparable to Musical Fidelity's best DAC's. In addition to 2 coaxial and one optical inputs it also has a USB input to run your computer thru.
The amp circuit used in the A1008 is the same as the $10,000 KW-550, other than the 3db less power of that 500 watt monster. With 250 watts into 8 ohms and 400 into 4 ohms the 1008 will drive virtually all speakers.
The preamp stage is the same tube based preamp as used in the $10,000 KW-550. It has 4 line inputs as well as a high quality phono stage that will handle both MM and MC cartridges. It also has a line out to run subwoofers and a home theater pass thru to integrated the 1008 into a home theater system and use its front amps to run your front speakers. There is a fixed out and digital outs for recording as well.
