Technology

The Aria is an “all analogue amplifier” with no digital control circuitry. The fully aluminium case screens the internal circuit from any stray RFI signals. Our designers have avoided including any superfluous gadgets as they obstruct the signal path and degrade the sound quality. The Aria incorporates many innovative design ideas including a self-adjusting servo control to keep the MC input circuit at its optimum, compensating for any variations in ambient or operating temperature.

Both stages have their own separate input sockets and input pre-amplifier circuitry. This enabled us to design bespoke input circuitry for each cartridge type without compromise. Signal switching is performed at high level and low impedance (via relays) ensuring there is no degradation of the signal.

MC Stage Design & Features

The MC input uses parallel connected, low noise FET’s (Field Effect Transistor’s) configured as a compound pair. The use of FET transistors ensures there is no bias current flowing in the cartridge coil so as not to upset the delicate magnetic geometry of the cartridge. The MC input has the provision for selecting resistive input loading of 70ohms to 400ohms and capacitive loading of 1000pF to 4200pF. The input sensitivity can be changed by 6dB via the back panel.

MM Stage design & features

The MM input uses low noise, bipolar input transistors also configured as a compound pair. There are two separate power supplies for each channel and further sub-power supplies for each of the low noise input circuits. Nichicon FG electrolytic capacitors have been used in critical positions throughout the power supplies. Polypropylene capacitors have been used in the signal path and equalization networks. Discrete circuitry is used throughout the signal path ensuring full control of the circuit design.

Soundstage Hi-Fi & Home Cinema

Independent Hi-Fi & Home Cinema Specialist. Soundstage is an independent Hi-Fi & Home Cinema specialist based in Barnet, North London. We’ve been supplying and installing the finest in Home Cinema and Hi-Fi since 1978. So whether it’s an all-in-one audio system for your kitchen, or a full automated, 11 channel, home cinema system, you’re in safe hands. Come and visit us for a chat, and a free demo session at the shop. Enhance the listening experience It’s our love of music and film that inspires us to create the ultimate hi-fi and home cinema experience. When Motown were mastering all those amazing records they listened to the final mix on a pair of £15 speakers, as that’s how their customers would hear them! At Soundstage, we hold the opposite view – we want to enhance the listening experience of the original recordings, so you can pick out the subtle details in music that usually get lost on inferior, or badly installed systems. On a great sounding hi-fi, you should hear the breath of a singer on the mic, feel the electricity surge through a hammond organ, or the snap of a snare drum. Every sound should be as close to the original recording as possible.
