Onkyo A-9010 Integrated Stereo Amplifier w/ Phono Equalizer and DAC
Whether you want to break out the vinyl, discover the thrill of hi-res audio, or just want an amp that’s versatile enough for a bit of everything, from big TV sound on movie night to CDs on Sunday morning, the Onkyo A-9010 is ready to inspire.The latest addition to Onkyo’s range of pure hi-fi separates boasts high-current WRAT (Wide Range Amp Technology), generous digital and analog audio inputs, a built-in phono equalizer, and the top quality Wolfson DAC. Inside the chassis are discrete low-impedance amplifiers, an extruded aluminum heat sink, and capacitors designed to support high current delivery with low distortion. The independent headphone amplifier, gold-plated transparent speaker posts, and chunky knobs will further help bring all your digital and analog sources to life.
Solid construction for a better sound
The Onkyo’s rigid chassis and casing not only looks good but also isolates the audio signal from vibrations. Gold-plated speaker terminals accept chunky cable and are internally connected via thick speaker plates rather than speaker relays, for reduced resistance.
Sound quality over bells and whistles
The Onkyo A-9010 puts sound quality above features. This means that while you won’t find digital inputs and multiple outputs you do get decent quality components fitted. The UK tuned circuitry uses Onkyo’s famous WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) for a precise and dynamic sound. Discrete amplification, using quality components, also ensures low distortion and unrestrained power.
Ready for your record deck
With sales of vinyl on a roll, the Onkyo A9010 hasn’t forgotten about your turntable. The built-in MM phono stage is compatible with the majority of turntable cartridges and compliments the sound of the rest of the amp – rich and smooth yet also detailed.
Quality headphone output
By using a dedicated headphone amplifier, the Onkyo delivers; even when your speakers are mute. With substantially more power than a typical portable player, the Onkyo A9010 gets the best from your headphones – making them sound punchier and more revealing.
