model S50x ― "Smart" Products Line

Named "Smart" is derived from modern Japan, especially in the Edo era to represent what "essence" and "stylish". In this products line, we aim to be condensed to a timeless design not too flashy, yet are required minimum of sophisticated features. Audio equipment is usually, does not exchange many times in a lifetime. So our customers, to enjoy the music to cherish the ones you like, this may also be wants of us.
As you see each page is about the features and functionality of each product, here you like to touch on briefly the overall design concept. "In order to enjoy the music, we do not need things exaggerated" in theme, enjoy the music really need a minimum of equipment configuration, yet decided to allow flexibility in system configuration according to the needs of our customers. For example, listen to CD music on the speakers, CD player, amplifier, loudspeakers, but is the minimum required. If each element give you enough to play each of the function, you just need to connect them with a minimum of cables. Complex wiring and, there is no nothing special equipment separately necessary. Equipment with each of its due role is, and finished products to condense the only thing "sound was the best" in repeating the various prototypes. Thus was able to announce the new series to everyone, we think happy from the bottom of our heart.

model S501 "air" ― Headphones/Line Amplifier

In switching signal systems, adopting a long life, high reliability reed switch (contact: ruthenium) in which an inert gas is sealed in the glass tube, the deterioration of freshness is very low. The sound with a sense of high speed, warm and relaxed does not feel sluggish seems to have been driven almost in the air. See in detail...

model S502 "ether" ― Integrated Amplifier

In switching signal systems, adopting a long life, high reliability reed switch (contact: ruthenium) in which an inert gas is sealed in the glass tube, the deterioration of freshness is very low. Reduced many kind of elements that causes the stagnation of the music signal to reproduce the natural depth and spread stress-free, "elegant" and "refined" sound. So far in amplifier that we have worked on, it is a "tour de force" with the most smooth and natural sound. See in detail...

model S503 "spiral" ― CD Player (DAC included) / CD Transport

While inheriting the sound quality of the model S303A "notebook", also non-oversampling D/A converter and the power supply unit is built in a compact size, and finished as an integrated CD player. The techonlogy of the low noise thorough investigation, was to further improve the fine expressive power. So that it can be also utilized as a high-end CD transport, two digital coaxial outputs (S/PDIF) for complete dual monaural system. As for the bulit-in DAC model (S503u), in addition to the current-mode output, you can connect directly with the conventional voltage-mode amplifier with this single model. See in detail...

model S504 "unison" ― 16 bit Non-Oversampling DAC

While inheriting the sound quality of the model S306 "pascal", also non-oversampling D/A converter and the power supply unit is built in a compact size, and finished as new D/A converters. The output stage amplifies the current from the DAC chip by push-pull current mirror, obtains the analog output directly, and it has a completely new constitution, and it is characterized by sound quality with highly pure musical power. There are 4 variations for each interface, COAXIAL (S/PDIF), USB (PC), OPTICAL (TOSLINK) and I2S. In addition to the current-mode output, you can connect directly with the conventional voltage-mode amplifier with this single model. See in detail...

model S505 "Flügel/Fluegel" ― Power Amplifier with Volume Control

With an analog power supply with a margin, a mechanical attenuators, a high slew-rate amplifier by the fully discrete structure, we have developed back to the basics and newly designed pure analog power amplifier. This can be connected directly to a music source, and it has only the power switch and volume control. Inheriting the "Smart" line, the sophisticated design exists only for listening to music. For those who want a bit more power, this amplifier has 25 watt output. There is more precise expression power and dynamism than ever, and it is characterized by massive sound quality. Besides conventional voltage-mode signaling type, current-mode signaling type can be selected. If you combine with an optional input selector (model S506/S506i), you can also switch the music source. As an amplifier to listen in the listening room, you will not need anything more than this. See in detail...

model S506 "switchgirl" ― Input Selector

When used in combination with a power amplifier model S505/S505i, with this input selector, you can switch three music sources. In switching signal systems, adopting a long life, high reliability reed switch (contact: ruthenium) in which an inert gas is sealed in the glass tube, the deterioration of freshness is very low. It is a high purity input selector which is almost indistinguishable from the direct connection without any inclusion between the music source and the power amplifier. Besides conventional voltage-mode signaling type, current-mode type can be selected. You can purchase it separately so that it can be used even in combination with other systems. See in detail...

model S507 "notebook II" ― Minimal Size CD Player (DAC included) / CD Transport

Top loading mechanism like analog players. While inheriting the sound quality of the model S303A "notebook", also non-oversampling D/A converter is built in a minimal size, and finished as an integrated CD player. The techonlogy of the low noise thorough investigation, was to further improve the fine expressive power. So that it can be also utilized as a high-end CD transport, two digital output types (S/PDIF, I2S) are supported. You can choose CD transport type (S507t) without bult-in DAC. As for the bulit-in DAC model (S507u), in addition to the current-mode output, you can connect directly with the conventional voltage-mode amplifier with this single model. See in detail...

model S508 "esprit" ― MC Phono Stage Amplifier [New]

It is probably the world's first MC phono stage, RIAA equalizing amplifier compatible with current input and current output. It captures minute electric power generated by the MC cartridge as current (= output voltage / internal resistance), amplifies and equalizes it, and sends it to the power amplifier as a current-mode signal. For that reason, it realized a very fresh, high-quality sound and dynamism, as well as a lively dynamic feeling like air. In addition to the current-mode output, you can connect directly with the conventional voltage-mode amplifier with this model. See in detail...

model S509 "nostalgia II" ― Broadcast FM/AM Tuner [New]

While inheriting the sound quality and outlook of the former model S304 "nostalgia", it finished to a compact size. We thoroughly pursued high sensitivity and internal noise reduction, further improved the clear and high fidelity reception performance and fine expression power. In addition to the current-mode output, you can connect directly with the conventional voltage-mode amplifier with this single model. See in detail...
