The Compactron Integrated Amplifier


Here is the last of the initial wave of Compactron gear I built in the recent months. An integrated Stereo Amplifier.

It is based on the same interstage transformer coupled design as the Compactron Power Amp. With Input selector and volume control added.

All inputs are for line level sources. The Phono input is meant to connect to an external phono stage like the Compactron Phono Preamplifier.

The volume control is a stepped resistive attenuator.

Output power is 7W per channel.

This amp is the ideal heart of a minimalistic system.

Add the Compactron DAC and a pair of speakers along with a CD transport and/or laptop or other digital source and you are ready to go.

And the phono stage to cover vinyl playback as well.

Glowing in the dark:

Best regards
