Amplifiers: the necessary muscle behind the music
The HiFi component at the centre or heart of every HiFi system, it controls the level or emotional impact your listening experience will have.
Amplifiers come in three main types; Solid state, Valve and class D Digital. These all offer a different presentation of the sound in your music. It would be a good practice to go to your Hifi shop to listen and hear the differences.
It is definitely worth coming in to our Windsor Showroom to a demo and hear the differences.
What do Amplifiers do?
An amplifier is an electronic device used for increasing the power of a signal. It does this by taking energy from a power supply and controlling the output to match the input signal shape but with a larger amplitude.
To get closer to your music, more power in an amplifier will not necessarily bring greater volume. Buying a better amplifier will produce a more effortless sound by properly controlling the speakers, giving a better sense of space between instruments and voice as well as a richer tone that makes music sound more realistic. Higher quality amplifiers use better quality components, bigger power supplies, shorter signal paths and less parts in the signal path to produce a purer sound.
