A Very Nice Shock
The poor historic Kenwood, which is over 30 years previous, has been powering quite a lot of my audio system for a number of a long time. Over that point it has developed some grounding points and the upper finish intermittently turns into fairly muffled making film dialog somewhat arduous to listen to. As percussive upkeep and a fast flick to the equalizer resolves these issues, it has caught round as it’s nonetheless simply adequate. There’s additionally the truth that many trendy amps don’t have posts for naked wires, so an improve would possible contain new audio system in addition to an amp. It additionally sports activities entrance and rear channels along with left and proper, in addition to one of many first incarnations of Dolby Encompass, neither of which is supplied by the Fosi TB10D TPA3255.
After a bit of labor, the wire transplant was profitable and the TB10D TPA3255 is able to strive powering an obnoxious quantity of audio system. A flick of the facility button and immediately the room is full of clearer and louder sound than it has been since I final pulled my NAD amp out for testing. The sign is simply stereo, with no entrance nor rear channels however there was no query these channels have been completely separated and absolutely audible throughout the room.
The audio just isn’t delayed in any respect in comparison with the supply, although it actually does overwhelm it. The amp gives very clear voice efficiency for watching TV, and there’s no query the treble and bass switches do precisely as a lot as you’d count on. When swapping over to films, the separation continues with the results being simply as loud as you want whereas not fuzzing out dialogue. The amp actually shines whenever you fireplace up your favorite music, with very clear audio. Those who want a heat tone won’t favour the TB10D TPA3255, because it doesn’t have fairly the identical heat because the previous Kenwood. The dearth of Dolby Encompass is telling, however that might not matter in any respect if these have been utilized in a extra regular vogue and hooked as much as a pair of excessive finish bookshelf audio system.
