Taiko Audio Kodo
Ultimate Audiophile Performance Class D Power Amplifier based on the Hypex Ncore NC500 amplifier module and SMPS 1200 power supply.
Optimized to be used without a preamplifier, e.g. driven directly from a DAC which has a well implemented built-in digital or analogue volume control.
True differential DC coupled input module with high common-mode impedance.
Audiophile class component selection. 0.1% tolerance parts used where possible. High quality circuit board with solid 130 uM circuit traces.
Final voicing by experienced ears for timbre, texture, micro-detail, and dynamics to maximize musical realism , rhythm and pleasure.
Efficient, interior friendly, compact form factor.
