Progression Integrated Amplifier
Built on a modular platform, the Progression Integrated fills every need of today’s music listener and audiophile.
The analogue platform provides two single ended inputs and three balanced inputs including a theatre pass through. Balanced preamplifier outputs make for convenient inclusion of subwoofer(s) into a system. The Bluetooth Remote control connectivity, first used in the Progression and Momentum HD Preamplifiers, is included as part of the base package. Bluetooth connectivity eliminates line of sight issues and extends the usable range 5x versus conventional IR remote controls.
The heart and soul of the Progression Integrated Amplifier is essential Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems’ technologies including discrete, balanced, direct coupled circuitry married to a substantial output stage delivering 200WPC into 8 Ohms and 400WPC into 4 Ohms. The foundation of the Progression Integrated Amplifier is a traditional line stage integrated amplifier suitable for all analogue sources except turntables. If the vinyl awakening has already captured your imagination, an optional phonostage module adds selectable moving coil compatibility. If a turntable is added in the future, the phonostage module can be added at a later date. For those listeners keen to incorporate digital playback within the same unit, an optional digital module, adding a full suite of capability, is also available. Eliminating external connections, gain stages, and additional components offers distinct sonic advantages. Coaxial, optical, and USB physical inputs join ethernet and wireless connectivity for in house network and internet streaming capability. Digital resolution includes support for files up to DSD256 and 24bit/192K PCM accuracy.
As part of the digital module technologies, Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer, and Spotify streaming subscription services are available. For use with appropriately encoded streaming music files, MQA decoding is standard. Customized apps for iOS devices provide easy control of music collections, streaming content, and unit control. Roon Music management is also available as an alternative music management program.
From the outside, the Progression Integrated Amplifier is pure Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems. Substantial power output requires proper cooling for optimal operation and long term reliability. The Progression Integrated Amplifier is equipped with the elegantly efficient heat sinks reminiscent of the flagship Relentless Mono Amplifier. Finished in either anodized silver or black Aluminium, the Progression Integrated Amplifier like all D’Agostino components, are hand built in their Cave Creek, Arizona facility.
