Aedo FrontAudiozen dedicates Aedo to the more exigent audio enthusiasts, using the best technology solutions in the digital domain and in the analog one.

Digital Core: an excellent Cirrus Logic DAC, encased in a rugged aluminum enclosure, with a Custom Clock circuit designed to contain the jitter at extremely low levels, a Multi-Bit Delta Sigma Modulator with excellent dynamic range.

Warm Heart: an analog section that adopts a pair of NOS tubes and ICCF, a tube original configuration developed by Audiozen equipped with a double triode for each channel.

The transparency and accuracy of the Digital Core combined with the typical "warmth" of the tubes is a winning sonic combination.

Aedo Rear

All passive components are top-notch: 1% tolerance metal film resistors, electrolytic capacitors stable up to 105° and fine Mundorf polypropylene output capacitors.

4 x 24bit/192 Khz S/PDIF digital inputs.

2 pairs of RCA unbalanced outputs

A professional oversized power supply connector.

 

Aedo PSU

Aedo is equipped with a separate Power Supply Unit that includes three toroidal transformers (one for the Digital Core and two for the tubes) with electronically stabilized circuits.

The minimalist design is opposed to the obsessive attention for every single detail, from the elegant 1 cm thick aluminum front panel to the aluminum knobs, obtained by solid.

The evidence of this profuse passion is the excellent sonic result: there are transparency and airiness, bass frequencies are always smooth, voices have great focus and high frequencies are very detailed.
