Vision DAC-1

The VISION DAC-1 is designed with the following philosophy in mind: The intention is not to continue looking for opportunities to support the highest bit and sampling rates of music formats, nor to use the latest or flagship DAC chip as sales argument, but to strive for a pleasant and musical listening experience.
 
The DAC-1 is a balanced DAC with an AKM top DAC chip, the AK4495, XMOS XU208 USB interface and FEMTO clocks for very low jitter values. It supports incoming signals up to 32bit / 384kHz, DSD128 via USB and 24bit / 192kHz and DoP DSD64 via SPDIF.

The DAC-1 is equipped with expensive 0.2 micro meter gold-plated printed circuit boards (PCB). It uses two AMPLIMO transformers, one to power the digital section and one for the analog section, to prevent they interfere with each other. These transformers are each encapsulated in a CNC-milled aluminum block. It is extremely rare to see such a design applied in this price range.

The circuit board with most of the critical components for the sound quality is enclosed with an 8 mm thick anodized aluminum 'wall'. This effectively eliminates EMI / EMC caused by surrounding equipment.

Neutrality and musicality were the goals that had to be achieved, as well as rich tonal quality, vivid imagery of sound, details, high resolution and dynamics. The choice of components, the design and fine tuning do exactly that.

Vision THR-1

The Vision THR-1 headphone amplifier is designed to literally power any headphone. The RMS output power is 2.2 Watt at 300Ω and 1.3 Watt at 600Ω. It has 3 headphone outputs, two Neutrik 6.3-mm jack plugs (one for low and one for high impedance headphones), and one balanced Neutrik 4-pin connector for use with balanced headphones.

The Vision THR-1 is equipped with genuine premium components from the best manufacturers, such as AMPLIMO, Mouser, DigiKey and Farnel. These components not only guaranteed the durability of the product, but also ensured the consistency of the sound quality in the long term.

Neutral sound, balance over all frequencies with little or no coloration and extremely low distortion were the targets for the THR-1. That is certainly succeeded. The extra large EXICON MOSFET output transistors offer a strong control and excellent drive. The smallest details and the largest dynamic jumps are easily heard. Even on the difficult to drive AKG K1000, the music reproduction is exceptionally good.

The THR-1 can be used as a Preamp, by means of a rocker switch next to the volume knob. The headphone output is switched off in preamplifier mode. The volume of the preamplifier output can be controlled with the volume knob, as a passive preamplifier.

EX-M1

The Kinki EX series is tuned to reproduce sound with a balanced mid and a smooth high and low.

The EX-M1 is completely modular, a dual mono design in a single chassis. This integrated amplifier is rich in sound quality, details, dynamics and high resolution.

Most amplifiers use a potentiometer for volume control. EX-M1 uses an advanced microprocessor-controlled, relay-based R2R steps attenuator. With the extremely precise linear volume control of 256 steps you can fine-tune the volume for late listening.

The EX-M1 is equipped with 0.2 micrometer gold-plated printed circuit boards (PCB). The designer is well aware of the limitations of PCBs and their fine contact area, therefore he specifically enlarged each soldered connection and as much shielding as possible is added. The amplifier has two 300VA AMPLIMO transformers. One for the left and right channels each, to improve the channel separation, to prevent that the channels interfere with each other.


The EX-M1 is a rare powerful integrated amplifier in its price range. It can deliver 215Watt (8Ω), both channels driven, and can literally handle any speaker.

Neutrality and musicality were the goals that had to be achieved, as well as rich tonal quality, vivid imagery of sound, details, high resolution and dynamics. The choice of components, the design and fine tuning do exactly that.

It is the sound signature of the Kinki Studio products.

EX-P7

The Kinki EX series is tuned to reproduce sound with a balanced mid and a smooth high and low.

The EX-P7 is a class A preamplifier with completely discrete input and output stages. This preamplifier is rich in sound quality, details, dynamics and high resolution.

Most amplifiers use a potentiometer for volume control. EX-P7 uses an advanced microprocessor-controlled, relay-based R2R steps attenuator. With the extremely precise linear volume control of 256 steps you can fine-tune the volume for late listening.

The EX-P7 is equipped with 0.2 micrometer gold-plated printed circuit boards (PCB). The designer is well aware of the limitations of PCBs and their fine contact area, therefore he specifically enlarged each soldered connection and as much shielding as possible is added. The amplifier has two AMPLIMO transformers. One for the left and right channels each, to improve the channel separation, to prevent that the channels interfere with each other. The EX-P7 is actually a dual mono preamplifier.

These transformers are each encapsulated in a CNC-milled aluminum block. Together with the aluminum housing, EMI / EMC (Electro Magnetic Pollution) has no influence.

Neutrality and musicality were the goals that had to be achieved, as well as rich tonal quality, vivid imagery of sound, details, high resolution and dynamics. The choice of components, the design and fine tuning do exactly that.

It is the sound signature of the Kinki Studio products.

EX-B7

The Kinki EX series is tuned to reproduce sound with a balanced mid and a smooth high and low.

The EX-B7 is a flagship mono power amplifier. Each monoblock has a beautiful chassis, expensive 0.2 micrometer gold plated Printed Circuit Board (PCB), two 300VA Amplimo toroidal transformers and 4 pairs of Exicon MOSFETS. This is two times of what the award-winning EX-M1 integrated amplifier offers. All the good of the EX-M1, like rich tonal quality, vivid sound, detail, high resolution and dynamics remain .

The mono amplifiers offer even more power and the better channel separation an even better stereo image.
