The long-awaited DENAFRIPS ATHENA is finally here – our flagship full-sized, True Balanced, Class-A biased preamplifier making its debut as the high-end line-stage.
Equipped with the advanced microprocessor CPLD discrete relay-based 60 steps volume control, coupled with current drive Darlington arrays network and the precision matched military-specs Metal Film Resistors, yielded perfect channel balance, ultra-low distortion THD+N at 0.000120%.
The full discrete Class A output stage not only does it sound full body, it reproduces transparent and spaciously sounding, literally the best of both worlds.
CNC Machined Remote Control Unit
The remote control unit is machined from a single block of aluminum, anodized in black color.
It controls the preamp volume, and source selection as well as dimming the display.
