Posted in Sep 27, 2021 in News, no comment

Designed as a multifunctional music centre for your desktop Hi-Fi system, working perfectly all alone or in combination with your other devices. Heart of EA5 is its digital player system, giving you easy access to a range of streaming services or working with your music library. Just insert MicroSD card, attach hard drive or connect EA5 to your local Wi-Fi network and music will start. And all of that can be controlled remotely from an app on your phone.

Then there are two amplifiers hidden inside EA5. Our standard headphone amplifier, offering up to 570mW@32Ohm power for your audiophile headphones, using a full-size 6.35mm output. But more special is the included Abletec Class-D amplifier for speakers, with 50W@4Ohm per channel. Making EA5 into a perfect choice for a desktop setup, where you might need to often switch between headphones and speakers.

Rest of EA5 is filled with the connectivity, so it can be used in many other scenarios. It can work as a dedicated DAC with a computer or other digital sources. It can be connected to a separate amplifier and used as a pure DAC or as a pre-amplifier. In reverse, it can also work as a integrated amplifier, connected to separate DAC. It can even work with Bluetooth, both as a receiver and as a source.
