The premium line of Onkyo’s audio products recently received two new units: the Onkyo C-S5VL stereo Super Audio CD player and the A-5VL integrated stereo amplifier. They are retailing for a suggested price of $599 (CD player) and $699 (amplifier).
The SACD player features Wolfson DACs, and proprietary Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry. The circuitry incorporates jitter reducing technology, and a thermally-regulated crystal oscillator, which combine to produce crystal-clear audio reproduction of any source. The integrated stereo amp uses VL digital power amplifier technology that is rated at 40W per channel. It uses VLSC and high-grade Burr-Brown DACs, and includes coaxial, optical and analog inputs.
