Edwards Audio Apprentice IA5-2 Integrated Amplifier

The IA5 is an all new fully discrete amplifier and as such is the start of a new generation of our Bi-Polar amplifiers which has trickle down technology to its smaller cousins
The IA5 is an exciting product for us as it represents the first in a new generation of Bi-Polar amplifiers.
It is housed in a HALK full width (220mm)  but full depth (325)mm aluminium case which has an anodised front panel from 1/4″ high grade aluminium , this allows you to match it to other products in our various ranges.
At its heart there is a strong power linear supply with RC multipole filtering, with regulation. It has a semi-symmetrical circuit topology for both the pre and power amplifier sections. As with all EA amplifier the inputs are switched by high quality relays.
The power amp section is a class AB 65 Watt, fully discrete Bi-Polar design
It has 5 inputs, one of which a dedicated to an all new, fully discrete MM Phono (turntable) with the remaining 5 being for line sources such as CD, DAC’s, Streamers, tuners, tape recorders. There is a fixed output for recording or other slave devices such as an external headphone amplifier.
The front panel has a dedicated professional 6.3mm 1/4″ Neutrik headphone socket which switches off the loudspeakers when inserted. This is driven from the class A pre-amp output and not taken from the power-amp and resisted down, as is usual, this ensures the listener a much superior result.
Other possible upgrade options include an optional pre-amp output allowing you to upgrade with a better remote power amplifier like our  P5/P6/p7
The IA5 is available in the following colours: Anodised Black, Anodised Gun metal Grey, and Anodised Titanium silver. other colours such as Anodised Red, Green, Blue and Gold are available to special  order
