The latest addition to our Pure Hi-Fi lineup, the affordable A-9010 Integrated Stereo Amplifier was tuned in the UK with specially modified circuitries and four audio-grade capacitors to deliver the warm, full-bodied sound European listeners prefer. A large transformer, discrete amplifier output stage, and unique high-current, low impedance circuitry enables precise control of the speaker drivers with minimal distortion, while a thick extruded aluminum heat sink keeps everything running cool. Other inclusions such as the MM phono equalizer, independent headphone amplifier,
gold-plated speaker posts, and chunky knobs for volume, tone, and input selection reflect the quality of the product and add an appealing touch of vintage charm. If you’re looking for a sweet-sounding amp that will get the most out of your LPs and CDs without breaking the bank, the A-9010 is very much worth an audition.
For music lovers who enjoy the tangible experience of playing a physical format, the CD retains its enduring appeal. The pleasure comes not just from browsing a collection of discs and reading the liner notes. It also comes from enjoying your music in superior fidelity. By combining high-quality components and decades of Onkyo audio know-how, the C-7030 CD player delivers a superb playback experience. The key lies in keeping the audio signal clean and free from interference, all the way to the output stage. To achieve this, we employ a new high-precision clock to dramatically reduce timing errors, along with our original VLSC™ to reduce pulse noise. Driving the system is a massive, custom-built transformer that provides a clean and stable power supply. Given how affordable the C-7030 is, build quality is exceptional. A 1.6 mm-thick flat chassis base helps reduce unwanted vibrations, while the sleek aluminum front panel provides an elegant finish.
Rather than simply offering raw power, the PA-MC5501 is engineered to deliver superior dynamic response and outstanding signal purity. Onkyo’s highly efficient push-pull amplification and WRAT suite work to minimize interference, stabilize the voltage, and boost the current across the unit’s electrical system. Components such as the toroidal transformer, large capacitors, and heavy-duty transistors are all designed to handle very high loads. Audiophile-grade parts—such as gold-plated speaker posts and XLR inputs—are used throughout. The result? Instantaneous response to signal gains, extremely low levels of distortion through the dynamic range, and the sort warmth and clarity only a top-shelf analog amplifier can provide. Paired with a matching Onkyo pre-pro unit, the PA-MC5501’s nine channels and bi-amping capability offer extraordinary set-up flexibility to bring you the ultimate in THX® Ultra2™-certified surround sound.
Small but perfectly formed, the RUBICON 2 stand speaker may be the baby of the bunch, but delivering richly defined detail and big bass response, its sound belies its size. The perfect blend between compact size and cabinet inner-volume, we believe we have created the ideal working environment to eke the absolute best out of its combination of ultra-light soft dome tweeter, 6-5-inch wood-fibre low-loss driver and gold-plated terminals. Don’t let its small footprint fool you; the RUBICON 2 is a performance powerhouse.
RUBICON and the SMC All variants in the series feature the DALI SMC magnet system which reduces distortion as never heard before. Part of the “secret” is the individually coated magnetic granules that make it possible to mould a strong magnet that’s not electrically conductive.
Available in four finishes – High-Gloss White, High-Gloss Black, Rosso and Walnut – the RUBICON 2 comes complete with rubber feet to hold it firmly in position and, to help keep it at its aesthetic as well as acoustic best.
