STEREO PHONO AMPLIFIERC-37

The C-37 is designed to match the Accuphase 40th anniversary models C-3800 and C-2820, the C-37 is a no-compromise standalone phono equalizer amplifier incorporating latest circuit design and utilizing materials and parts with optimal sonic qualities, making it capable of exploring the possibilities of the analog disc to the fullest. The phono amplifier must accurately handle the minute signal while keeping distortion and noise to an absolute minimum. In the C-37, these goals are achieved by employing completely separate MC head amplifier and equalizer sections, and keeping the left and right channels also separate. This enables the C-37 to fully bring out the characteristics and sonic qualities of any phono cartridge, allowing the listener to explore the legendary musical depth of analog discs. In terms of physical appearance, the gold-colored panel face and side panels of real wood with natural grain finish exude an aura of refined elegance, making the C-37 a perfect match for the C-3800 as well as other models such as the C-2820 or C-2420.

  • Dual mono construction with left/right separate MC head amplifier and equalizer sections
  • Highly precise equalization: RIAA deviation only ±0.3dB
  • Versatile load impedance switching options with 6 settings for MC and 3 settings for MM
  • Gain switching enables high gain of up to 70dB
  • Three inputs for analog players or tone arms, each with a separate memory for MC/MM, load impedance, gain, subsonic filter and other settings
  • Two sets of analog outputs for balanced and Line connections
  • Phase selector for balanced outputs

STEREO CONTROL CENTERC-2120

Accuphase’s ground-breaking AAVA (Accuphase Analog Vari-gain Amplifier) volume control, first introduced in the model C-2800, has been continually further refined and improved. AAVA operates fully in the analog domain, but it eliminates all potentiometers from the signal path. This has a number of advantages, such as (1) outstanding S/N ratio, (2) extremely low distortion, (3) virtually no change in frequency response and sound quality at any listening level, (4) minimal left/right level differences (tracking errors), and (5) minimal left/right crosstalk. The result is a volume control that far surpasses conventional concepts.
A range of sophisticated option boards opens up even more possibilities. The newly developed Digital Input Board DAC-40 features a USB port and support for high-bit, high-sampling frequency signals up to 192 kHz/24 bits.
The newly developed Analog Disc Input Board AD-30 is also available, ideal for high-grade reproduction of analog records using either MC or MM phono cartridges.

  • AAVA volume control for high performance and outstanding sound
  • Separate power transformers for left and right channels
  • Selectable preamp gain
  • Fully modular construction with individual left/right amplifier units on motherboard
  • Logic-controlled relays for shortest signal paths
  • Independent phase selection for each input position
  • Tone controls designed for optimum sound quality
  • Option board slots provide additional versatility for digital input handling or analog record playback
