[aIso includes RCA digital & toslink optical inputs; remote control & headphone jack.] Smooth, relaxed sonic performance & abundant headroom for more demanding speakers." ABSOLUTE SOUND, HIGH END BUYERS GUIDE
The power transformer is an amp's most expensive & most important electronic part, since it determines the amp's power output & bass. Cambridge amps' oversize torroidal transformers are unique at their price. The finest amps for many thousands of dollars use torroidal transformers for best sound. Most amps & receivers for thousands of dollars have noisier standard transformers that can be heard humming across a room, even without the speakers connected. The metal plates of standard transformers vibrate 60 times a second. Torroid transformers are inherently shielded, more efficient & don't have the buzzing metal plates of most transformers.
