The ultimate in tube equalizer amplifiers

Tube equalizer amplifier of a new dimension

Description
The AS-EQ99VIP's chassis is made of two pieces of bent, 2mm-thick 18-18 stainless steel with a mirror finish and 1mm-thick oxygen-free copper. The mounting parts are made of 2mm-thick oxygen-free copper. The beautiful mirror-finish appearance of the casing is exceptionally effective in anti-vibration and anti-noise measures due to the extra-thickness of the casing. The metal fittings used inside are also all made of oxygen-free copper sheet. The casing alone cost nearly 200,000 yen. The sound quality is further enhanced by the handcrafting of the parts made of aluminum, copper, oxygen-free copper, and stainless steel, one by one, to ensure the best quality. The insulators are made of oxygen-free copper, shaved from a round bar, and attached with a piece of young cowhide leather.

Unparalleled transparency, high resolution, and volume of information!

By using a top quality transformer under the bridge and carefully selected top quality capacitors and sockets, it is possible to reproduce all of the musical information that the MC cartridge picks up from the analog disc. The reproduced sound, with minimal noise and distortion, is as deep and quiet as a jet-black background due to the extremely high signal-to-noise ratio, and the sound is as transparent as it exits. It reproduces the original sound at the time of recording, which was carved into the sound groove.
