Product Description

Teac AX-501E integrated amplifier features XLR Balanced Inputs and provides the latest in high-efficiency Class-D amplifier technology. The revolutionary modules employed (fed by an oversize toroidal transformer) deliver a huge 120w per channel, an incredible output in such a physically small amplifier. Despite that, the amp consumes just 0.5W in power-saving mode and runs so cool that fan ventilation is rendered unnecessary.

BLETEC Class D Amplifier

TEAC is devoted to finding high-output audio components capable of efficiently driving full-scale speakers while still achieving singular audio quality so they specifically selected the ABLETEC ALC0240 digital power amplifier for the AX-501. A maximum power output of 120W+120W with low power consumption of 68W(at max level) delivers powerful, convincing audio reproduction. This next-generation integrated amplifier consumes 0.5W in power-saving mode.

XLR Balanced Terminals

XLR balanced output terminals have grown increasingly common in recent years, moving beyond their niche of high-end hi-fi equipment even to compact USB DAC models. The AX-501 features XLR balanced input terminals that allow balanced connection to high-quality USB DAC equipment to cancel out external noise and achieve an unadulterated transmission of high-quality audio signals from the USB DAC to the power amplifier.

Fully-balanced Circuitry

In addition, to support balanced connections, a fully-balanced approach for the pre-amp analogue circuits supplies constant balanced signals through the entire AX-501E work-flow until they are input to the power amplifier. This configuration is highly resistant to external circuit noise.

Full-Metal Construction

Not only the front panel, both side and top panels are made of aluminium panels and attached to a robust steel chassis. These heavy parts eliminate vibrations and allow all internal circuits to always perform under stable conditions. An A4-size body allows users to place the unit in small spaces. The Reference 501 series defines a new standard that fits all modern interior with great space-saving design and a timeless presence.

Versatile Inputs

A key feature of the AX-501E is its large number of input terminals, allowing users to connect both current and future audio components along with full-scale audio systems. In addition to the XLR input terminals ideally suited for USB DAC connections, the AX-501 incorporates three sets of RCA analogue input terminals.

The AX-501E with its minimalistic is much more than just a PC audio system. The speaker terminals use large ports compatible with both banana plugs and AWG8 speaker cables for versatile connections. The AC power supply cable is detachable with a 3-pin inlet in case users choose to upgrade to ultra high-grade AC cables.

Intuitive Interface

A firm-torqued volume with a machined aluminium knob, and toggle type main power switch give the user assured operation. The remote control with aluminium facia gives the unit an elegant appearance and very precise volume control in paces of approximately 0.5dB. To help contribute to the musical atmosphere is the classiest characteristic of the AX-501, the 4-step dimmable backlight(Normal, Dark, Very Dark or Off), and dual analogue meters.

Toroidal Power Transformer

An over-sized Toroidal-core power transformer helps deliver high-quality sound without sacrificing energy-efficiency and the unit's compact dimensions. Conventional diodes produce rectification noise that negatively affects the sound of other units. To combat this, TEAC installed Schottky Barrier Diodes to supply a cleaner internal current and reduce rectification noise.

CCLC High Linearity System

The AX-501 features a headphone output with audio quality optimised for headphone listening, a feature increasingly popular in recent years. The CCLC (Coupling Capacitor-Less Circuit) system keeps the coupling free of capacitors; ensuring a stronger signal reaches the headphones to achieve accurate audio reproduction.

    I've owned the AX-501-B for little more than a year, paired via XLR connections to TEAC's UD-301 DAC. The AX-501 has a very neutral sound paired with my Martin Logan Motion 40 floorstanding speakers. I also have an Audio Technica phono and TEAC AD-850 combo CD/Cassette. Great sound balance, visually appealing and nice feel to the controls. I would definately recommend to those looking for a amp you can place right next to your computer.
