In 2016, Audio Analogue celebrated its twentieth birthday with a handful of brand new ‘Anniversary’ editions of the company’s earlier classic amplifiers. Then, in 2018, the brand launched its ‘PureAA’ line of products, drawing key ideas from the Anniversary amps and adding further features.


Third in the line, following the AAcento amplifier and AAphono, is the new AAdac. Audio Analogue’s PureAA line aims to draw on some of the key ideas and features of the Anniversary amplifiers but to apply them in a slightly different way. The PureAA line sports a set of added features designed to appeal to music lovers who seek a wider range of functions and connections in a single product.

Separate Power Supply

Its wide variety of functions include the ability to select one of seven different digital filters, to set the unit to volume regulated mode to allow it to operate as a preamplifier, to change the channels’ balance, and even to regulate the brightness of the LED display.

The entire unit is made up of discrete components, each of which has a separate power supply. The digital stage is fully balanced and features high quality components, allowing ultra-low noise and ultra-low distortion.
