This power amp offers a complete dual mono design including power supply
With two toroidal core power transformers and two Ncore modules (HYPEX Electronics BV), the extravagant circuitry has a complete dual mono structure from input to output. This prevents interference between the left and right signals and achieves outstanding channel separation. And it enables rich audio reproduction that provides a larger sound stage and more three dimensional sound.

High output with a practical maximum of 260 W + 260 W at 4 Ohms or 170 W + 170 W at 8 Ohms
Hypex Ncore power amplifier modules realize both high efficiency and high audio quality. These two amplifier modules, which were tuned and designed specifically for TEAC, drive the speakers without losing any of the original musical expression, from delicate pianissimo to powerful fortissimo.

Vibration control from flexible structure
The front, side and rear panels are secured with 3mm-thick heavy sheet metal as the primary material. Then, joints that provide suspension are used at the junctures of the front, side, rear and top panels. This enclosure with a flexible structure controls the vibration of the entire device to allow open and vibrant sound reproduction.
A floating structure keeps the transformers, which can easily cause vibration, detached from the bottom panel. The form of the side panel fins, which provide heat dispersion, have been adjusted to eliminate vibration.
In order to further suppress vibrations that affect audio quality thoroughly, 3 TEAC original pin-point feet that utlize a new mechanism are attached to the bottom panel with appropriate allowance, while a number of screws that fix the circuit boards to the chassis is minimized.

Fan-free design achieved with effective ventilation system
Despite the high output of this power amplifier, a fan-free design has been realized with circuit board placement calculated for airflow and precise layout of air inlets and outlets. Heat dispersion is increased by attaching the amplifier modules directly to the bottom panel. Along with the fin structure of the side panels, this reliably abates internal heat.

Numerous features for audio quality
The durability of input circuits is ensured by including slits between each connector. In addition, direct wiring without connectors is used from the input circuits to deliver input signals to the discrete buffer circuits without losing any of their clarity.
