PS Audio has released a new integrated amplifier in the Sprout line - the Sprout100, which is twice as powerful as its predecessor. See all the interesting PS Audio Sprout100 specs in this PS Audio S...Read More
The Sprout100 has almost two times more power output than its opponent. 50W vs 30W at 8 Ohms. A serious and functional filling was placed in a compact case: a DAC based on the ESS Saber 9016 chip, a Bluetooth module, a phonopred, a headphone amplifier and a class D power amplifier. The updated topology, according to the developers, improved the dynamics and reduced the noise level. The new, fully asynchronous DAC is ready to work with PCM signals up to 32 bit / 384 kHz and DSD up to 5.6 MHz. It is equipped with a subwoofer output, speaker outputs, as well as RCA inputs and outputs, coaxial and optical inputs for connecting digital players and headphone output.
The aptX Bluetooth module is built into the amplifier, so signal transmission from various mobile devices will not cause any difficulties. It is also very useful to have a 3.5 mm output for connecting headphones on the front panel. Something was added on the rear panel of the new amplifier. The D3020 V2 received an output from the preamplifier and a connector for connecting a subwoofer (the necessary adapters are included), as well as a control 12-volt trigger input.
The NAD D 3020 V2 is better integrated amplifier in this comparison. Check NAD D 3020 V2 price
