Taking things even further, the Arcam Alpha 9 Integrated Amplifier Upgrade Stage 2 adds our discrete low-noise voltage regulators for the input stage to bring a much more polished, sweeter & cleaner soundstage.
Our Stage 2 upgrade includes:
Replacement of the main power supply electrolytic capacitors to Mundorf MLytic
Local decoupling capacitors are upgraded to the new Elna Cerafine
Input Stage Voltage Regulatorsreplaced with our newly designed, dual stage regulation board. The addition of this enhanced voltage regulation stage improves detail, definition & clarity. The sound is more open and defined, and bass is improved too. You will hear layers of bass texture and definition that were previously hidden. Micro-dynamics are also dramatically improved, which really brings the music to life. All of these improvements are combined with a wonderfully smooth and sweet treble which keeps you listening for hours.
