Source components, preamplifiers and power amplifiers (and Integrated) are the key building blocks in any quality audio system.
- Source: These are the playback devices. Including CD players, turntables, music servers or iPod docks.
- Preamplifier: A crucial component that is saddled with the task of delivering the delicate signal from the source.
- Power Amplifier: The work horse. Applies current to the voltage gain of the preamplifier. When connected to a Loudspeaker, this is the music we hear.
