Akai AA-5500

Akai AA-5500 Integrated Amplifier

I recently sold the smaller AA-5200 model that I thought was one of the best solid state amps I had heard from its era

The A5500 take this performance to an even higher level. Superb !

The whole page direct connection SEPP-ITL-OTL system circuit was adopted as the power amplifier part, and low distortion Oide power is realized.
Moreover, the ICZ stage direct connection circuit is used also for phone amplifier.

Four tape deck simultaneous connection is possible, and also a microphone jack with a level control, a muting switch, a bus treble control, a high / low cut, and a loudness switch are carried.

A power transistor protection circuit is built in and the Puri Maine independent use is also possible.
