Here we have output power of 58/8 vs 120/8 W/Ohm where Yamaha takes the lead. The updated Brio is made in an elegant aluminum case, consisting of massive metal sides (in combination - cooling radiators), which are connected by lower and upper covers. On the front panel of “piano” black plastic there is a power button, a headphone jack, an input switching button and a volume knob. The amplifier is equipped with an input for a vinyl player, four line inputs and an output to the recorder. The built-in RIAA corrector is designed to work with MM type heads; for MC heads, an external matching transformer is needed. Acoustic terminals are universal; they accept bananas, spatulas and bare wire.
Each board in this unit is created on the basis of the “floating design” principle, which helps to eliminate vibrations and create clear sound at the output. The toroidal transformer, thanks to its work, allows you to create a clearer sound. The design basis of the model is a special technology of a potential-free symmetrical power amplifier. The separation of the amplifier from the ground eliminates any negative consequences of deviations in voltage, as well as interference on the ground bus. This model uses a unique digital ladder volume control. It was specially designed for this device. With its help, a cleaner sound is created.
