Audioaero La Fontaine


La Fontaine forms the hub of a high-performance audio system. It combines a preamplifier, a DAC (digital-to-analog converter) in a single, slim case, cutting down the clutter while improving the convenience & sound quality. You only need an amplifier to drive the loudspeakers with Audioaeros' music controllers. The vacuum tube output stage delivers a rich, musically satisfying experience, while throwing a palpable, three dimensional soundstage. La Fontaine's preamplifier section features an analogue volume & balance controls and is forty times quieter than its predecessor - the Prestige.

S.T.A.R.S - digital signal processing is handled at 32 bit 384kHz, combined with an ultra low jitter clock design that delivers remarkable resolution. La Fontaine incorporates the Esoteric UMK-5 high precision aluminum turntable and drive mechanism, equipped with an aluminum tray to extract the maximum of information from both CD & SACD discs. Complete versatility with both digital and analog signals (inputs & outputs) as well as an asynchronous 24/192 USB input for easy connection to music servers.
