Description stereo amplifier, Electrocompaniet PI-2D

Full amplifier Electrocompaniet PI-2D refers to the starting lineup Prelude and is a direct descendant of the model PI-2. One of the main features of this unit is the presence of on-Board digital-to-analog Converter.

The metal body has a strict laconic design. The Central part of the front panel is a large display window which shows the selected input, the indicator of the volume level and other symbols. The left set button power/standby. On the right side there are 4 buttons in the shape of a cross. The upper and lower speed button to adjust the volume, while the remaining two serve as the input selector.

The model has an output of 100 W at 8 Ohms and when you connect speakers with an impedance of 2 Ohms, this figure increases to 220 watts. The damping ratio exceeds 300 units, which allows the amplifier to operate with low-impedance speaker systems.

In 2D PI uses the balanced topology of the schemes and the same design principles as in the Classic line. All components are carefully selected. Installed circuit Board with surface mount technology (SMT), which help to improve the quality of signal transmission and reduce the cost of the model. The power supply used a toroidal transformer.

The amplifier chip digital-to-analog Converter and can be used as external DAC. This is especially useful when connecting to a computer via the asynchronous USB input that allows you to receive signal in high resolution (24 bit/192 kHz). However, when working with Windows-based PCs, this will require installing the driver.

Electrocompaniet PI-2D has the following inputs: three RCA, balanced XLR, two coaxial, a pair of optical connectors, and an asynchronous USB port, and a fixed input of the HT, opening up direct access to the amplifying cascade, which will be required when integrating 2D PI into a home theatre system. For connecting speakers there are 2 pairs of screw terminals that are installed in the right and left side of the rear panel. Universal remote control allows you to control other brand components such as a Blu-ray player PBD-1, which matches perfectly with this model.

Amplifier Electrocompaniet PI-2D has an extremely low rate of harmonic distortion value of only 0.005% and a wide frequency range (1 Hz to 225 kHz). His music is so mesmerizing emotion, accuracy, attention to detail, fast movement, articulated bass and realistic scene with correct arrangement of images in space.
