Here is a list of 18 Amplifiers categories. It encompasses a wide range including isolation amplifiers, operational amplifiers, instrumentation amplifiers, programmable-gain amplifiers, etc. You can search for an overview, principle, and usage of each category, as well as find manufacturers and distributors.
An amplifier is a device that amplifies electrical signals, especially in the field of acoustics.
Preamplifiers switch the input signals of various sound sources such as FM broadcasts and CDs, and adjust the sound quality.
The power amplifier amplifies the electrical signals sent from the preamplifier and sends them to the speakers. It is also called a main amplifier.
This type of amplifier combines the functions of both a preamplifier and a power amplifier, and is very useful for audio purposes.
When selecting an amplifier, it is important to keep the following points in mind:
A USB port is necessary to connect a smartphone, digital audio player, or PC to an amplifier.
High-resolution is becoming the most important keyword in audio today, and in order to faithfully reproduce its high-quality sound, it is necessary to select a standard that is compatible with it.
A DAC (Digital Analog Converter) is a circuit that converts digital signals input to an amplifier into analog signals for output. This type of DAC is considered optimal for playing back high-resolution sound sources distributed by various media on a PC from which they have been downloaded.
If you want to connect to a network like a smartphone or PC, you must choose a Wi-Fi-compatible model. Of course, for wireless use over a short distance, a Bluetooth-compatible model will work fine. Also, by using a model with the AirPray function, you can play content that can be played on your iPhone or iPad over a network.
