Packing power

Don't judge the SA1 MK2 by its small size! This amp is packing super powerful hybrid-digital amps with 40 ridiculously effective watts in each channel.

To put it simply: this amp is ready for most speakers you could think of pairing it with. Our own passive FORUS-series speakers would be a great choice, but your flea market finds will do just as well.

The right connections

If you are familiar with Bluetooth, then you know how to use the SA1 MK2. Just pair your phone, tablet, or any other Bluetooth-enabled device, and you’re good to go. You’ve also got a pre-out output in case you want to use SA1 MK2 as a fully digital pre-amp. That one is for the enthusiasts. Us simple mortals can also use it to add a subwoofer.

Thinking of upgrading your TV audio? Great idea! By using the HDMI connection to connect your TV, the SA1 MK2 will automatically power on with it, allowing the volume to be controlled using your TV remote. It does everything your plastic soundbar does—except, you know, better. There’s no excuse to settle for the subpar audio of soundbars anymore, cause’ the SA1 MK2 is here to save you! It has truly never been easier to achieve quality stereo sound.

A non-scary amp

Let’s be real for a second here. Amps can be quite daunting. Most often they’re huge metal boxes with some confusing interface that’s impossible to decipher. Turn ‘em around and you stare into a thousand ports, each with their own weird abbreviation slapped on top. SA1 MK2 is different. SA1 MK2 understands.

This small box packs only the stuff you actually need – nothing more, nothing less. Connect your speakers, power it on, pair with Bluetooth, and you’re good to go.

"The SA1 is further evidence that great Hi-Fi systems can be very affordable. Its specifications and performance rival those of integrated amplifiers that cost at least twice as much. The speaker set provides enough punch across the low and high tones, with a very nice and detailed soundstage. It comes with an outright recommendation."

Read review (German)

"The SA1 is a fully-featured amplifier that delivers an incredibly rich, full, and warm sound, with proper reserves for less efficient speakers. It has a very good finish and smart industrial design, with the only notable omission being the lack of network capability."
