Bakoon Products SCL CAP-1001 Small Power Amplifier
Pursuit of the best sound in the near field
Technology of the Year 2019 (Separate Amplifier Category)
The amplifier section consists of a current-mode, non-feedback voltage amplifier circuit and a complementary MOS-FET push-pull output stage that drives the speaker. The amplifier uses a newly developed SATRI circuit with a powerful 150~200mA non-feedback compared to the negative feedback/approximately 50mA of most amplifiers, so while it is actually called a near-field amplifier, it can drive large speakers with ease. It seems to be a very good guitar amp as well, so much so that famous musicians have been accompanying it on their overseas tours.
The gain (volume) can be controlled, so you can connect a CD player or DAC directly to the amp without using a preamplifier to enjoy music. The gain of the amplifier changes with the volume position because of the variable resistor, and the lower the volume, the lower the gain, so you can enjoy high-quality sound with no distortion even at low volume. There are two input systems: RCA jacks on the rear panel and a phone jack on the front panel. The front input can be used to connect a mobile player, smartphone, or other device, so you can connect it to the CAP-1001 as soon as you get home and enjoy high-resolution music to the fullest.
The CAP-1001 also has a headphone jack, so it can be used as a headphone amplifier. When listening to music through headphones, the volume output from the speakers is set to a low level.
The CAP-1001 is a power amplifier and requires 24 VDC, but it can be used outdoors if a 24 VDC battery is used. The CAP-1001 can be used outdoors with the use of a 24V battery, and it will perform at its best without being affected by noise.

*facebook Bakun Products Guitarist Pukichi's Listening Testimonial
The detailed textural description of the orchestra, the elasticity of the low end, and the richness of the tonal gradation are beyond the level of small speakers. The sharp attack of piano and brass instruments, as well as the richness of the vocal parts of the mouth, are vividly brought to life. The sound is well separated and realistic. Headphone output was checked with a Sennheiser HD 600. Even high-impedance headphones can be driven without difficulty, and a memory setting of about 2 is sufficient for sufficient volume. The sound quality is straightforward with good sound separation and three-dimensional descriptive power with no incidental sound. When the preamplifier CAP-1007 was added, the high SN of the battery-driven system became even more pronounced, and the straightforward and highly transparent sound of the non-reduction configuration spread out before one's eyes. The ability to carefully trace the texture of the sound image and the clear view of the sound field are qualities that exceed the price.
