The C-02X's DC power supply features a fully independent dual mono design that completely eliminates inter-channel interference. Its dedicated bank of five generously rated power transformers for each channel also blocks noise from the power line, enabling a pure, natural amplified sound. Grandioso technology reveals itself in such detailed refinements as the careful layout of the power supply circuit boards, which further contribute to the C-02X's superb sound quality.
The preamplifier's source signal is first received by dedicated buffer amplifiers integrated with each input, from which the circuit configuration is balanced at each stage. Through the elimination of common-mode noise and reductions in circuit impedance, a pure, noise-free signal is fed to the gain amplifiers via the shortest path possible, for an exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratio.
