2011/2012 New Arrival@ Musiclink! Introducing the World's smallest Pre/Power Amplifier. Designed, Engineered & Made in Italy.

Model: Carot 1 Ernestolo

Carot One is an innovative brand from Italy offering very special electronics with technologically advanced features. The Carot One Class D Amplifier makes use of the latest micro chip sizes, which exhibit outstanding performance, as well as a tube Pre-Amplifier stage.

With an input for iPod on the front panel and one for CD or DAC on the rear,  this small box offers a high quality desktop option for those wanting a decent sound from their computer based media. Simply add a HRT USB DAC for a complete desktop system.

Fine electronic circuits such as this a few years ago were unthinkable, but now with this new technology comes reduced dimensions. Thanks to precise and careful planning they have managed to obtain a high level of performance at exceptionally low cost.

Anodised aluminum orange casing of the Carot One looks cool, and makes a real statement in any decor. To maximise the enormous potential quality speakers that provide a precise and transparent sound will mate very well with the Carot One.

Conveniently, the Ernestolo also provides a great sounding headphone amplifier output on the front panel, so you can continue to enjoy great sound even in the wee hours...
