The Pioneer A-40AE Amplifier is an integrated amplifier featuring Pioneer's latest Direct Energy technology, with phono and digital inputs, creating a clear and crisp sound, remaining faithful to your music.

Pioneer A-40AE Integrated Amplifier

Incorporating Direct Energy design and a high signal to noise ratio, the A-40AE delivers an incredibly life-like sound field. An isolated power supply with separated windings for the pre-amplifier, power amp and controls ensures the prevention of any mutual noise interference. The custom made large capacitors have been developed as an exclusive pure audio capacitor, whilst direct function bypasses extra circuits except for the volume to offer a pure listening experience without any added colour to the audio.

The A-40AE amplifier contains a phono (MM) input, allowing you to directly connect your turntable to enjoy a high quality vinyl experience. There are also optical and coaxial digital inputs to connect to your TV, letting you enhance the ordinary sound of the TV with an upgraded quality. Hi-Res audio is also supported, and capable of playing up to 192 kHz sampling rate. The speaker terminal outputs feature non-magnetic material, making it less susceptible to external noise, whilst transmitting the signal at a high quality rate. There are two sets of speaker outputs to allow for individual or parallel use. Additionally, the amplifier contains five extra analogue inputs, an analogue line out, as well as a headphone output on the front panel.

Pioneer’s Direct Energy design is based on the philosophy of transferring energy from the amplifier directly to the speakers without any loss. As a result, the A-40AE features an optimised power supply and internal layout. With shorted signal pathways, audio distortion and noise are lessened significantly, resulting in a clear and detailed sound.

The Anti-Standing Wave Insulator features a form containing no internal parallel sides to prevent cavity resonance. Overall, this design improves the sound stage, tone and scale, in addition to helping the seamless connection between the two channels, and responsive to quick sound.
