The new Edwards Audio stereo amplifier IA3-R Mk2 is a development of our popular IA2-R but with vastly superior performance in every area. No stone was left unturned, which is why it has been so long in the making but great things are not achieved over night. Every aspect of design has been optimized in this top of the Edwards Audio series of amplifiers. PCB layout was designed to reduce noise with gold plated 2oz copper construction (normal PCB’s are 1oz)
The sound quality is top notch to make it a must listen in its category, we believe that with most speakers, like our SP3’s and TT3 turntable as a source this stunning amplifier will astonish you with its dynamic, musical and accurate rendition. It has enough power for most average listening rooms however should you wish to take thinks to the next level you can add and additional P3 power amplifier via it’s pre-out function to create a bi-amped system of astonishing performance.
The remote functions include Volume +/- and mute and are operated by the accompanying handset or you can use any standard app that outputs RC5 codes. It has a 3.5mm stereo jack input on the rear panel for use with portable media devices plus 3 other inputs on RCA phono sockets at line level. For use with Moving Magnet (MM) cartridges there is an optional RIAA input board, this allows for reproduction via a turntable without the need for an external phono stage.
