Musical Fidelity A1

On demo at the shop!

In Hi-Fi, the Musical Fidelity A1 has become one of the most classic designs – inside and out.
First released back in 1985, it quickly made waves for being an absolute beast
when it came down to driving some of the most difficult speakers of that time,
even though it was actually a rather low powered integrated amplifier.
But: it was all done in pure Class A with excellent and expertly laid out discrete symmetrical circuitry topology
and using only highest quality components.
The A1 showed people that there was more to amplifiers than just high power.


25W Pure Class A power @ 8 Ohm
Discrete symmetrical topology
Planar Audio transistors with 25A maximum output
Dynamic class A, slides (NOT switches) smoothly into Class B, allowing more current as needed
Therefore drives difficult speakers with no problems
Updated transformer to “dual mono split rail” windings
Fully independent left and right power supplies
Each power amplifier now has double supply capacity
Transformer noise and heat dissipation reduced
Filtered main supplies
Gain block before volume control totally bypassable using “direct” switch
High quality and updated ALPS RK series potentiometer
Low noise TL071 JFET preamplifier circuitry
Discrete current-mode MM/MC phono input stage
Low noise current to voltage converter for further amplification and RIAA equalisation
Automatic input impedance matching (1K nominal) for MC along with increased gain
Original (1985) A1 appearance and circuits with modern improvements
Remote control added for volume
Modern updated low noise components
