Why some of our products are now under Advance Paris brand ?
Our aim was to offer to the worldwide music lovers a higher quality level,, so we decided to launch Advance Paris brand, the outcome of 20 years of experience in the quality audio reproduction. Advance Paris brand was exclusively dedicated to our « High End products».
Since now two years, the first premium products that were launched are the mono amplifier X-A1200, the CD player with valves X-Cd1000 and an integrated amplifier X-i1000.
For the 20 years of Advance Acoustic brand, we are proud to present you our new Smart serie, which incorporates our new Advance Paris trademark.
The Smart range is composed of an integrated amplifier AX1, a stereo power amplifier BX1, a DAC/Preamp DX1 and one preamplifier PX1. Will follow a streamer SX1,a mono power amplifier BX2 and a CD drive MX1.
Really elegant Serie by its design, the Smart Line is technically and acoustically at the cutting edge of the best products we can find at this day.this one was developped for really demanding audiophile people that don’t want to do any compromise.
The Smart serie is marketed under Advance Paris brand, our premium trademark.A compact serie of products, not mini, not micro.
The reason is simple. The quality of Hifi products depends largely of their power supply quality and used components. A qualitative power supply needs transformers with right size. An efficient power amp circuit integrates power transitors generating high temperatures.So an adequate ventilation is required as a minimum volume. So a product miniaturization is not possible, except using technologies or amp classes that we do not endorse.
The BX1 is a stereo power amplifier that can be linked with AX1, DX1 or PX1.
This amplifier 2*105 w on 8 Ohms will be able to drive, due to its versatility, neutrality and dynamics, most of the speakers found in the market.Thanks to its white or black transparent methacrylate front panel, you will appreciate its design and ergonomics, as the general conception and building of the several subsets inside.
Our BX1 provides Cinch (unbalanced) or XLR ( balanced) connectors, switchable on the rear panel.BX1 has a High Bias function, that allows the amplifier to deliver the first watts in a similar A Class.After that, the amp will be working in Class AB. The inside tooling is based on compartments, insuring mecanical rigidity and the components shielding, starting with the 480 VA toroidal transformer.The voltage is rectified by 4 capacitors of 6800 uF under 63 volts.Power stages are supplied by Toshiba transistors that are famous for their audio quality.The result is a neutral and transparent listening, especially by an excellent performance in sound power. The lower frequencies are strengh and without heaviness, and for the medium frequencies, a very detail rendering of the voices and audio signal.The trebles are not left out with a lack of agressiveness and great finesse.
The BX1 provides speaker connectors in order to connect 2 pairs of loudspeakers.
