The Tune –

Integrated Amplifier with optional digital input

The new EINSTEIN integrated amplifier The Tune contains all our experience in analog design and digital technique.
This new integrated meets absolute high end standard and is the perfect control center for digital media. It is a unique Einstein product that is exemplary for the sound and circuit philosophy that made Einstein a company with international reputation and worldwide approval.

The amplifier offers all technical attributes of the ‘big’ Einstein amplifiers:

  • extremely short signal paths
  • sophisticated power supply with high current headroom
  • outstanding signal to noise ratio
  • absolute thermal balance within the casing (basic for high life expectancy and optimal function of electric parts)
  • high bandwidth for a detailed musical reproduction without phase problems
  • no relays in the loudspeaker signal path and therefore no limits in dynamics
  • volume control realized with resistor network

The optional digital input meets highest requirements – it is a genuine little brother of the one in the reference CD Player EINSTEIN The Source.For all analog lovers The Tune offers an integrated phono preamplifier. It is suitable for MM as well as high output MC cartridges.

This new integrated offers a musical reproduction that is exemplary for all EINSTEIN products.
It impresses with perfect timing, is extremely explosive and dynamic and offers a fantastic three dimensional and focused tonal image. The musical authority as well as the musical flow of The Tune are convincing. It is perfection in the complete frequency range – a typical EINSTEIN design.

The appearance of this new amplifier is classically simple and elegant looking, while functional – in typical Einstein style. Once more our designer has set standards. This low resonance casing is not only good looking and acoustically fantastic but also a bargain. According to Mies van der Rohe: ‚Less is more‘.The remote control which comes with The Tune is a custom made design piece and again a real EINSTEIN product with the basic functions for input selection and volume control.
The touchscreen panel supports the simple modern design and allows operation without remote control.

The new integrated amplifier The Tune is a tonal as well as optical synthesis of both the legendary EINSTEIN amplifier from the 1990s and the EINSTEIN tube amplifiers. A perfect entrance to the absolute musical!
