Onkyo Digital Amp

Yes, it's two-channel only, but we wouldn't be surprised if the high efficiency VL Digital amplifier technology in the new A-9555 integrated amplifier (100Wpc into 8 ohms, 200Wpc into 4) won't find its way into future Onkyo and Integra home theater components. In fact, the press releases says it will. And at $699.99 (August availability) it's cheaper than most digital amp designs that have any high quality ambitions. Onkyo also intriduced a new audiophile CD player, the DX-7555 ($599/March). A new CD player from any Japanese manufacturer is a hot story these days.
