Advance Paris X-i1100 Amplifier



The heir

Advance Paris, French high fidelity manufacturer presents the latest addition to its CLASSIC range designed for the demanding music lover. This new integrated amplifier contains many technical advantages. We thus confirm our desire to leave nothing to chance and to optimize each of the modules that make up this integrated amplifier.

The digital inputs are numerous: one USB, one AES, and six S/PDIF including four optical. The outputs are not left out: one dedicated to unbalanced line recording and a preamplifier output, in order to connect an additional power unit to the X-i1100. The X-i1100 can power any type of speaker with its 220W effective per channel at 8Ω (400W at 4Ω€!) based on a 700VA toroidal transformer and 60000uF filtering capacity.

The preamplification part is not left out with switching relays as close as possible to the inputs. The DAC has two digital signal receivers: an X-Mos processor and a USB3318 with jitter correction for the USB input and a Cirrus Logic CS8416 for all others, AES and S/PDIF. The chosen converter, a Burr Brown PCM1796, handles signals up to 192 kHz at 24 bits. Metal film resistors and polypropylene capacitors contribute to the reproduction quality of this integrated amplifier. Mounted on large heat sinks, the amplifier cards, connected to the output terminals by means of 4 mm2 cables, have a triple push-pull per channel, therefore three pairs of bipolar transistors NJW0281 G and NJW0302G.

The mechanical construction has also been carefully designed: five compartments forming galvanic insulation and contributing to the rigidity of the optimum ventilation of the X-i1100
