High End in both, sound and construction.
Superior audio quality and extravagant design
If you are looking for the unconventional, the Exception hi-fi system is exactly what you need. Sophisticated technology is brought to innovative design to create a truly exceptional hi-fi system.
For your convenience, we combined technical supremacy with unparalleled ease of use. The user-friendly menu, which is accessed at a key-stroke, guides you through all functions, and the display provides you with all necessary information. Of course, you can also control the individual components using the IR handset. In order to simplify their use, the hifi components communicate by means of our proprietary link system. Thus, when you turn on the CD player, for example, the amplifier automatically switches to CD.
The Exception hi-fi system presents design at its best. When devising the Exception's specifications, our engineers put set-up flexibility high on the technical agenda. Therefore, the traditional configuration op positioning one component above the other is only one option out of many. Depending on the available space and your individual taste, you can arrange the Exception units side by side or two forming a base with one on top. Regardless of which placement option you choose, the Exception system will always be pleasing on the eye.
At 200 watts RMS per channel, the E450 amplifier, the core unit of the Exception system, delivers a stunning sound reproduction. Sporting connectors for two pairs of loudspeakers and up to eight components as well as two outputs for recording, the E450 is ready to meet today's and tomorrow's requirements. Extremely short signal paths of the input circuit, low-noise operational amplifiers, and the option to split the amplifier's pre- and power sections add up to an impeccable sonic performance.
E460 FM tuner
Equipped with highly sensitive input circuits, the E460 FM tuner receives even the weakest signal. Even if stations are very close together, its excellent selectivity guarantees very good reception performance. Up to 50 radio stations can be stored in preset memories. Since the tuner supports RDS (radio data system), its large LC display shows the name of the selected station and other information, such as artist and title of the playing piece of music.
E426 CD player
The E426 CD player is a user-friendly top loader that allows you to change CDs easily and quickly. As it carries latest generation Hall motor drives, there are no mechanical influences while the discs are read, which makes the E426 a lifelong companion. As far as signal processing is concerned, we strictly separated the digital from the analogue path by employing two transformers and two power supply circuits to eliminate possible mutual influencing. Top quality components ensure an optimum conditioning of the signals which are fed in their purest form to the outputs. Balanced and single-ended connectors act as interface to external equipment. Two digital outputs enable you to directly record your CDs on DAT or MiniDisc.
