Compact stereo amplifier with timeless design & future-proof technology!
Our original MaiA was a compact integrated amplifier with ultimate input flexibility, that avoids compromising the sound quality. It is offering all digital and analogue input options you can dream of combined with an amplifier stage, that delivers outstanding tube-like sound (Flying Mole modules) and a high-class 24bit/192kHz D/A converter stage. Now it is time to introduce our MaiA into our S2 Chrome product line with modern looks, a new all-aluminium chrome case and improved board layout. The astonishing feature-set remains the same as before!
Despite its small size, 9 source devices can be connected simultaneously:
The improved case and board layout result in better shielding of electromagnetic interference further improving the already excellent audio performance: No matter which input you choose, a real musical sound with lifelike characteristics is guaranteed.
This stylish amplifier offers low noise and solid output power for audiophile playback in smaller rooms around 25m, when partnered with good-quality speakers. Additionally, a subwoofer or another power amplifier can be connected. A headphone 6,3mm connection is also provided. The included remote control makes usage a piece of a cake.
High-quality CD playback
In contrast to DVD or Blu-ray Disc players, a pure CD player is frequently better in playback of stereo CDs. The drive in the CD Box S2 Chrome enables 1:1 bit-accurate CD playback. Compared to its predecessor, the CD Box S, the inner workings of the CD Box S2 Chrome have been technically revised. The player is controlled by a mini-computer, to optimise the used PC-drive for a 1:1 bit-accurate reading of the „Redbook“ CD-standard and achieve a modern and audiophile playback solution. The CD is read into a memory allowing any reading errors to be corrected, which ensures the best sound quality that you can get from a PC-drive. Although this approach results in slightly higher start-up and reading times, it enables us to fit an audiophile-grade CD player into the ultra-compact and beautiful S2 chrome case.
A new and advanced DAC-chip enables a more precise and detailed digital to analogue conversion. A new feature is the ability to switch between digital IIR and FIR filters. FIR filters are more complex DSP-operations and require more computational effort. However, they enable a finer and linear processing of the digital signal. The ideal base for even better sound!
For even more versatility and no limits towards the top, the optical digital output can feed an external DAC. This way, you can let your favourite high-end DAC convert the accurately transferred bitstream from the CD.
