HICC (High Instantaneous-Current Capability) - Experience audio with greater dynamics
When an amplifier outputs an audio signal, the connected speakers accumulate energy,
reflex, and send energy back to the amplifier. The amplifier must then immediately cancel
the speakers’ reflex energy and instantaneously send out the next signal. The same
high current required to achieve this is also necessary to handle speaker impedance
fluctuations, which can force an amplifier to provide four to six times its usual current load.
The DTA-70.1’s instantaneous current capability ensures that audio output is not affected
by power limitations.
In order to handle high levels of instantaneous current, the DTA-70.1 incorporates several
key design features.
(1) Push-Pull Amplification Design with Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry
Found only in high-end amplifiers, this ultra-sensitive circuitry reduces distortion by
maintaining voltage stability and enhancing transient response.
(2) Improved Board Design
The DTA-70.1 features an improved board design with short signal pathways to reduce
electromagnetic interference. The board is also designed to optimise power delivery to
the speaker drivers.
(3) Symmetrical Layout
The amplifier design also incorporates a symmetrical alignment of power devices for
each channel. With channels built to be identical in terms of electrical, structural, heatgenerating, weight, and electromagnetic characteristics, errors in stereophonic playback
are minimised.
All-Analog Circuitry Unaffected by Digital Noise
A standard integrated A/V receiver has the dual task of both processing and amplifying
audio signals, and is therefore susceptible to noise interference from digital circuitry. As a
dedicated power amp with all-analog circuitry, the DTA-70.1 suffers no such interference.
When partnered with a high-quality pre-pro, the DTA-70.1 offers all the benefits of pure
analog amplification: a warm, musical, and full-bodied sound.
THX® Ultra2™ Certified
When a home theatre component receives THX certification, it is your guarantee that it
will accurately present movies the way they were mixed by the filmmaker in the studio. In
the case of THX Ultra2 certification - the ultimate benchmark for home audio performance
- a power amplifier must offer high-quality, high-output performance for multi-channel
playback in large rooms. Among the strict criteria that THX uses for judging the quality of
a power amplifier are measurements of continuous power output, distortion levels, and
heat generation.
