ShEng Ya a-203gs
The budget-priced Sheng Ya A-203GS 100-watt per channel pure Class-A integrated ampli- fier that has captured the ears and wallets of North American audiophiles has finally arrived in Australia. It’s distributed by Melbourne’s ClassA Audio, which says the model being sold in Australia is an improved version of the one that got all the press in the US last year. The preamplifier section uses a high-speed d.c. amplifier module developed in Hong Kong by Sheng Ya, which manufactures in China. According to Sheng Ya, this d.c. amplifier module uses audio MKP film capacitors, one per cent precision metal film resistors, and has a wide frequency response, low distortion, and wide dynamic range. ‘ Its performance is superior to the many so-called advanced audio IC and discrete components that are usually used,’ said a company spokesman.
