NEW CH PRECISION I1 UNIVERSAL INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER


And the other CH Precision product, that is getting its official launch in Munich High-End Audio Show 2017 is I1 Universal Integrated Amplifier. Its finally going into the production and first units will be ready to ship out at the end of the summer. I1 will be playing in room F204.

CH Precision’s recipe for making a Universal Integrated amplifier: Gather together an a1, C1, L1 and P1. Gently squeeze and collect the essence and soul of each product. Delicately pour the concoction into a mould in the shape of the CH unique enclosure. Lightly shake for perfect consistency. Season to taste with optional audio input cards. Serve with your favorite source and loudspeakers. Sit down and enjoy! With digital, analog, phono, USB and ethernet streaming inputs to choose from, the I1 is the heart of your compact yet exclusive audio system. While specified at 2x 100W RMS into 8Ω, its internal 1000Va power transformer provides the amplifier output stages with ample energy to accurately and effortlessly drive any loudspeakers.
