About
Advance Acoustic
Advance acoustic was formed after the decision was made in Toulouse France, to create a new French brand with an idea which was both simple and audacious: to design audio equipment, reasonably priced but with faultless musical quality. Speakers were the first products off the production line, with 5 models becoming available.
These were an instant success and received high praise from many French magazines. In 2002, Advance Acoustic added electronics to their product catalogue, while keeping the same simple philosophy, reasonably priced without compromising on sound quality.

The goal of our development team was to achieve an integrated sound quality that could satisfy the demanding audiophile while mastering its price. Objective achieved without any compromise in terms of performance, choice of components, connectivity, aesthetics or manufacturing quality. With the AX1, Advance Paris is at the rendezvous of the requirement and the absolute quality!


We can not do better in ergonomics. Inside, each space is judiciously used, without settling of the different elements. The power stages, consisting of a push-pull of bipolar transistors per channel, are powered by a toroidal transformer of 350 VA, the voltages being rectified, then filtered by 2 x 6800 μF at 50 volts. A second power supply feeds the low power elements, such as the Wolfson WM8740 DAC, preceded by an Asahi Kasei AK4113 receive interface, the AX1 can convert the PCM up to 192 kHz into 24 bits.


We have voluntarily limited the power of our built-in 2x45W under 8 ohms or 2x65W under 4 ohms and yet, animate loudspeakers with medium efficiency see modest is no problem. The serious register does not lack firmness and precision, we managed to create a balance between a presence of the low end of the spectrum and a sufficient tension to never pour into heaviness. Advance draws without limitation the energy necessary to respect the dynamic envelope imposed by each musical range.


The AX1 has a connection worthy of the best amplifiers normal size, to you to judge: analog inputs: 6 asymmetric on Cinch including 1 phono, 1 balanced on XLR, digital inputs S / PDIF: 3 optical Toslink and 1 coaxial on Cinch, Bluetooth input: via specific adapter on HE10 connector, analog outputs line: 1 unbalanced on Cinch and 1 balanced on XLR (Pre Out), 1 unbalanced line (Rec Out). 
The AX1 comes with its infrared remote control. 

Available in black or white.
