An integrated amplilier. as the name implies, com»
bines all amplilying stages into a single chassis.
This makes lor easy operation, but it also makes it
very dillicult to achieve impeccable sound quality.
The main reason lor this predicament is that the
total gain oi such a unit exceeds 100 dB. which
easily gives rise to mutual interlerence between the
various stages.

Accuphase linally provrdes a solution which tullills
even the most severe audiophile demands. Draw-
ing on our long experience in building separate
type ampliliers of world renown. we have used only
the linest materials and applied innovative design
to create the E305. lt realizes the ultimate goal: to
provide the quality of a standalone preamplilier
and power ampliliei in an integrated package.
The E7305 consists of a phone equalizer stage tor
reproduction ol analog discs, a high-gain pream-
plilier. and a power amplilier. Each oi these three
units is optimized tor the ultimate in performance.
lnterterence between stages is eltectively pre—
vented by using separate power translormer Windr
ings lor the phono and preamplilier stage and the
power amplilier. The preamplifier employs sophisti
cated voltage regulator circuitry tor utterly stable
operation Ingenious Circuit design and parts layout
combined with etlective shielding turther prevent
the possibility of static or magnetic interlerence,
The power amplilier draws on a highly capable
power supply and employs a triple parallel pushr
pull design in the output stage. It delivers 130 watts
per channel into 8 ohms and 180 watts per channel
into 4 ohms. It can even drive 2-ohm loads with 250
watts of power per channel This capability is desir-
able not only when using speakers wrth very low
impedance ratings. Also with normal speakers. the
