KaNiKo Class A Integrated Amplifier

Introduction

The TaKo Electronics KaNiKo Integrated amplifier is probably the Best compact Integrated Amplifier in its price range in the market. The simplicity & sleek design of this compact integrated amplifier is precisely hand-built . It Features a Balanced tube preamp and Class A MOSFET power amp in its compact case.

Design Philosophy of KaNiKo is to listen to the music in the simplest way with Highest possible sound quality and easy to use.
Just push the power button(also remote controllable) and sit back on your sofa to enjoy the music!

5-inch large high-resolution color LCD touch screen display for extreme versatility and easy control of the amplifier. Preamp and power amp can be operated separately.

Born for enjoy music

A 5 inches high resolution color touch screen control all the function.It can be dim or totally switch off when necessary.  The Precision optical velocity sensing volume control knob provides silky smooth analog feeling but in most advanced way.It is also remote controllable.  The heart of the volume control uses discrete Precision metal film resistor with low impedance CMOS switch. The volume control circuit preserves constant input impedance in any position. which is superior to traditional volume pot or any commercial IC. Thanks to constant input impedance design. it preserve highest sound quality in any volume level. The volume is 1000 steps which attenuates the signal in 0.1db per step. Also equipped with channel balance control(5db/0.1db per step).

The 4-layer PCB to ensure the shortest signal path in volume circuit.

Easy to read 5inches touch screen LCD displays all information such as amplifier current and temperature in real time. It also  accesses all the functions of the amplifier. To prevent any interference which may harm the sound quality. The entire control system is fully electrically isolated from audio circuit.

Symphony of vacuum tube and semiconductor

The KaNiKo Combines Warm and sweet Vacuum tube preamp and powerful Class A solidstate power amp benefits advantage of both device topology . 

Preamplifier

The Preamp of KaNiKo features a wide bandwidth vacuum tube single stage hybrid low feedback preamp uses 2x12AT7/ECC81 (western brand NOS tube included).The Balanced preamplifier using Premium parts such as Mundoff Aluminium  oil capacitor and Amtrans AMRG resistor to improve the sound quality. Preamplifier converts input signal from unbalanced  to balanced to drive the power amplifier. Vacuum tube with full power on/off sequence control eliminate warming up offset voltage that may harm the power amp and speaker. tube life also can be extended. High Quality Phono stage is also integrated.

Power Amplifier

The Balanced High current discrete push-pull class A power amplifier can drive most power hunger speakers. The input stage powers by Toshiba low noise JFET and Power stage uses 3pairs of MOSFET as ampification device.Power stage runs approximately 1Amp of quiescent current per channel. It Deliver 12W(8ohm) in Class A region and 18A of Class A peak current. While the amplifier leaves its Class A region it delivers approx. 30W(8ohm) ,60W(4ohm),90W(2ohm). All the transistors are precisely selected and matched. Speaker protect is featuring Ultralow impedance MOSFET relay for the robustness and quick response compares to the traditional mechanical relay. The whole system safely monitors amplifier temperature, current consumption and speaker loading status in digital domain and in analog domain partially.

Power Supply and connectivity

Extremely Versatile

KaNiKo amplifier can be operate as separate preamp or power amp , it also features full recording output for tape lovers.built in high quality moving magnet Phono amplifier also can be use separately by using record out.All configuration will be save without power.

Power supply and internal wiring

The power supply of the amplifier using 200W custom made R core transformer with separate winding for each section of amplifier.
Pre amp ,power amp and control system are using individual Capacitor bank and power supply circuit.Internal wiring of power supply is heavy gauge Silver platted Teflon wire.

The KaNiKo also selects Oyaide and Belden as our High quality internal wiring.

Modular design

TaKo Electronics always follow the shortest path rule to preserve any detail of music. The signal path from input RCA jack to preamp output as short as 5cm. 

The Modular design keeps serviceable also up-gradable of the amplifier. any repair or upgrade of the amplifier can be finish within few hours.
