integrated amplifier


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Wikipedia.

integrated amplifier

A combination preamp/amplifier, typically for two-channel stereo. The preamp provides the input switching and phonograph equalization, and the amplifier boosts the signals to the speakers. Integrated amplifiers are widely used to listen to music by audiophiles, although they may opt for a separate preamp and amp. Every self-contained music system with CD player and speakers, no matter how large or small, also has an integrated amp built in. See preamp and music system.


High-End Hybrid Integrated Amp
The McIntosh MA252 uses a vacuum tube preamp and solid state power amp to deliver 100 watts into two speaker channels and subwoofer. Amplifiers like these are used to listen to music and are teamed up with quality speakers, CD player and turntable. (Image courtesy of McIntosh Laboratory, Inc., www.mcintoshlabs.com)

After a brief interregnum of no music (aaaaaaargh!), I improbably convinced Pacific Stereo's (they were still the only game in town) credit manager that a Sansui AU-417 integrated amplifier, a Pioneer single-play turntable with a Shure M95ED cartridge, and a Kenwood analog tuner would find a safe, risk-free home, and that's how the rig stood for many years.

Associated Equipment: The speakers were driven by either a Parasound HCA-1000A power amplifier controlled by a CT-17 preamp-tuner, or a McIntosh MA6850 integrated amplifier. Other speakers were Mach One model M-Two 2-ways, used by themselves or with a pair of NHT SW3 subwoofers run in dual mono and separately driven by an NHT SA-3 power amplifier with integral electronic crossover.
