DIGITAL ART, WITH AN ANALOG HEART

We know that is a cheesy punchline of our amplifier, but I hope our explanation of it would make sense to you. With more than 5 years into the development of the A(ctive) series speakers (still ongoing), we learned that a lot of what the A series brings to the table, needed to get implemented into the passive world, as it was simply too good not to do so. So the analog heart is basically a statement of the I150s core of just being a high-quality simple amplifier. We could stop right here, and you would still have a great value amplifier. But where the digital art comes into play, is when you pair it with the Buchardt app.

The biggest factor in achieving great sound is by far the room you place your setup in; that is not a statement, it's a fact! The influence of the room is sadly something that most casual audiophiles do not pay enough attention to. Or maybe it's simply impossible to plaster the whole living room with acoustic treatment, which is understandable. So if you do not have a custom-built music room, the I150 brings you the flexibility and allows your speakers to easily adapt to your room and your personal taste.

First, the I150 is a serious integrated that is actually built like a separated poweramp and preamp in the same chassis. This is a result of its unique split power supply design. The poweramp section consists of a powerful Hypex NCORE module. But where the real magic comes from is its preamp section, which we state as 70% of what you pay for in the I150. Here you have a separated linear powersupply that powers the high-end Sabre PRO DAC, analog volume control and the quad-core DSP processor which gives you access to easy and effective room correction, advanced manual EQ, easy sub integration and adjustable Fletcher Monson curve correction (LLE) for better performance at low listening levels.

So how does it sound? Powerful and natural, with a hint of warmth thanks to the analog volume control that is a perfect match to the NCORE Class D amp section. It's capable of driving anything you throw at it with ease as well. Should you have anything you want to change in terms of how it sounds, then you basically have free hands to tune as you prefer.
