A pure class A design transformed into a MKII model Capable of optimising sound density Pursuing a sound that appeals to the senses whilst creating a deep musical impression is the ultimate role of the audio amplifier. With pure class A design, the L-550AXII integrated amplifier is a refined version of the L-550AX which was itself fully restyled in 2011. The MK II model boasts improved functionality with the latest technologies equivalent to the higher grade L-590AXII such as Version 4.0 of the original amplification feedback circuit ODNF, the new LECUA1000, computerized attenuator, and a buffer circuit with discrete configuration as standard. Such features result in a model with capability of expression above its class, offering a mellow and dense sound that only pure class A amplification can create. The L-550AXII is a mid-range integrated amplifier that increases its maturity in an attractive, functional design for music to be thoroughly enjoyed. Large-capacity power supply circuit A high-inertia power supply circuit that combines a large capacity EI core type power transformer (to which a vibration control feature has been newly added) and a large capacitor block (10,000uF x4) is an integral part of the L-550AXII. This large capacity power supply circuit supports the sound dynamics of the unit by enhancing stability at the core of the design. Discrete buffer circuit A discrete buffer circuit that is the equivalent to those used in the top end LUXMAN C-900u separate amplifier is mounted on the output stage of the pre-amplifier circuit. This protects the purity of the audio signals whilst simultaneously enhancing the drive force for the power amplifier. Proprietary technologies The L-550AXII is designed using proprietary technology and customised parts to optimise the sound quality of this integrated amplifier. For example, the round pattern board enabling smooth signal transmission, and a Beeline construction configuring the optimal parts locations and the shortest signal routes. In addition to this, the loopless chassis structure minimizes the ground impedance increase.
