20 years of Audio Analogue, 20 years of Puccini, two things going hand in hand... the Puccini, the first Audio Analogue amplifier and absolute milestone of high fidelity audio.
The dream was to create the best Puccini ever, a product that also marked a turning point in the history of Audio Analogue and traced the way for what will be the products of the future, created with the intent to give the maximum in terms of sound performance, but also technically very advanced.
This is certainly a difficult challenge and to make it possible it was necessary something unique and here was consolidated an idea born in Airtech laboratories: to create an integrated amplifier without global feedback, being less sensitive to the type of load to drive, no tendency to oscillate, no high frequency resonance peaks, no saturation in the input stages and with a fully balanced circuit design.

Heavy metal cabinet, brushed aluminum front panel with 14mm thickness, remote control, volume control based on an encoder controlling four digital high precision potentiometers Analog Devices (two per channel).
The volume control has four selectable curves according to the sensitivity of the speakers. Indications of volume level and selected input, through white LEDs with brightness adjustable on two levels or off.
Inputs with high quality gold plated RCA connectors with Teflon insulation, soldered directly to the input board and activated via signal relay.
All amplifier stages are on independent boards. The printed circuit boards, have tracks with double thickness of standard productions, in order to increase the electrical conductivity.
Fully dual-mono circuitry.
Transformer from 700VA, six pairs of On-Semiconductor power transistor (three per channel).
Internal wiring with conductors in pure solid copper 7N OCC, military standard resistors, audiograde polypropylene capacitors, gold plated copper output connectors.
Available in natural aluminium or satin black.
Nominal output power @8Ω
Attenuation 0dB, Bandwidth -3dB
Nominal output power @2Ω/1kHz
(Bandwidth limit 0Hz-80kHz/A weighted)
