PS Audio Sprout Integrated Amplifier with Phono Stage

PS Audio is an American high-end audio company with a long track record making innovative products, but the little Sprout feels like a fresh start. First there's the clean look, the Sprout's aluminum housing frames a real walnut top cover, and the front panel has just two knobs, one handles input selection, the other volume. This little guy is easy to understand and play; few consumer electronics are as user-friendly -- kudos to PS Audio for that!

The Sprout jam-packed with features: there's a phono preamp for turntables; a headphone amp; a high-resolution 192kHz/24-bit digital converter; and AptX Bluetooth. All of that good stuff is squeezed into a body that's 6 inches wide by 8 inches deep by 1.75 inches thick (152x203x44.4mm). Rear panel connectivity is generous, considering the limited space for jacks: there's a coaxial digital input; USB port, stereo RCA turntable inputs; 3.5mm stereo analog input; a variable 3.5mm stereo analogue output that can be hooked up to a subwoofer, power amp, or powered speakers; and speaker wire binding posts.  There's no wall wart -- the power supply is built into the Sprout. The Sprout's Class D amp is rated at 50 watts per channel for 4-ohm speakers, and 33 watts per channel for 8-ohm speakers.

Sprout is the culmination of PS Audio’s 42 years’ experience building concert quality audio products. We hand selected the best parts of that rich history and put it into a single, simple, easy-to-use personal music system. It’s everything you need. Nothing you don’t. Just add speakers or headphones, and music—so close to live—will fill your whole home. It’s nothing short of magical. Sprout is the link between your music and your speakers. Sprout is the size of a big novel, yet it will fill your living room, bedroom or any room with enormous, live sound. Sprout is designed down to the very atom. Constructed of stainless steel, extruded aluminum, and walnut, this is not audio equipment. It’s audio furniture.

very nice litle amp
Thursday, 17 November 2016  | 

The sound of this amp is very open and there is a lot of 'air' in the music. I was pleasantly surprised by its quality at this price level. The build quality is excellent.

4 starts because
there are 2 minor things on the negative side:
- there is no indication the amp is on
- there is no normal sized analogue input (which is fine, but you have to be aware)
