PUCCINI SETTANTA REV2.0
Speed and detail
The new, totally remote-controlled discrete components circuit deliver crystal-clear power up to 70W per channel on 8 Ohm, with impressive dynamic headroom. Very accurate protections save the power stage and the speakers from burn-outs, while allowing for full dynamic power delivery in every normal listening situation. The high-performance discrete components preamplifier circuit operates a perfect interface between the integrated bufferless resistor network potentiomenter and the power amp’s input, contributing to the balanced sound of the amplifier. Solid state input selectors allow for indefinite best quality performance (no sound detriment due to metallic contacts ageing and wear-out).
The Puccini70 REV2.0 has a phono input with which both MC and MM cartridges can be used and has a MonOut output to directly drive an active subwoofer.
A special bypass feature, selectable by remote’s “setup” option, allows the user to turn the Puccini 70 REV2.0 into a power amplifier on a specified input, to include the amplifier in a multichannel system as front speakers power amp, while using the same speakers for two channel listening using the stereo sources connected to the amplifier.
The seven-keys solid brass remote control allows for a more flexible control of the Puccini 70 REV2.0. Of course, all the main features of the amplifiers can be used by the front panel’s simple controls.
Great care has been used in the passive and active components selection, as usual for Audio Analogue.
