THE SUPER INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER
With the knowledge and the experience developed in over 20 years of research, we are able to offer an all-in-one solution powered by the most advanced technologies and components to achieve true audiophile quality sound. The IS-1000 merges a powerful class AB Integrated Amplifier, a MM/MC Phono Preamplifier, a High-End DAC, and a high-resolution Streamer in one single unique source.
The class AB amplifier with 125W @ 8Ω per channel guarantees pure sound, vivid dynamics, and the finest detail.
It also offers a wide range of digital and analogue inputs to assure total control and freedom to upgrade, expand or connect more devices to the IS-1000. You don’t need anything else to experience the real pleasure of high-definition audio at home. Nothing more than the IS-1000 and your speakers. It’s really that simple.

Pure line unit (without MM/MC phono input)
The Booster is a feature designed to reproduce the lower range of frequencies with power and control. It works as a custom equalisation, increasing the gain around 50Hz to provide a richer and more full-bodied sound. The 50Hz frequency has been chosen since lower frequencies are more difficult to obtain with small speakers.
The Booster provides a richer and more full-bodied sound, for better realism and dynamic. It’s particularly useful in case of speakers that require more energy in the bass frequencies, for night-time listening at lower volumes, or even to achieve a more realistic headroom. The Booster is completely by-passed when set to OFF, applied to 50% when set to 1, applied to 100% when set to 2.
