PS Audio Sprout100 (ON SALE)

Sprout is a simple, elegant source of music for those who want quality sound without the hassles that come with it. Sprout was designed by PS Audio's Scott McGowan as an answer to the complexity and cost of Audiophile systems. Appealing to the eye and ear, solid and reassuring to the touch, Sprout’s ease of use makes it appealing and accessible to music lovers around the world. It features a phono preamplifier for vinyl, a Bluetooth receiver for music streamed from smartphones, a high-quality hi-res DAC to handle anything stored on a computer, enough power for any speaker, and a headphone amp that drives even the toughest loads.

To ensure the best possible vinyl reproduction, we engineered a brand-new hybrid circuit design that incorporates a JFET input stage, to lower noise and increase headroom, and a passive high-frequency RIAA circuit, for extended and nuanced high-frequency response. Optimized to the cutting edge of digital playback, Sprout100 also employs an ultra high-resolution ESS Sabre DAC (9016) with USB-B input that accepts resolutions up to PCM 384/24 and DSD128: bit-perfect playback for your high-rez computer audio, video, and gamin applications. An optical (toslink) input allows you to incorporate a TV or other modern digital device with your new system. Bluetooth offers versatility, convenience, and one-touch access to a world of content.

Equiped with bleeding-edge ICEpower amplifier technology, the Sprout100 offers 100 watts per channel, with peaks of up to 135 watts per channel. The Sprout100 also features a built-in subwoofer output (mono RCA, variable), allowing you all the rumble you want with the powered subwoofer of your choosing. With one of the finest headphone amplifiers made, the Sprout100 honors and respects the music with a low-impendance z-feedback circuit that is capable of driving virtually any pair of headphones you can throw at it with perfect transient impulse response. Slewing at an unheard of 1,300-volts/microsecond, the Sprout100's headphone amp produces lucid spatial detail and acute tonal retrieval.
