The goal of the Blue Circle Audio CS series has always been to produce an integrated amp that focuses on performance-per-dollar, not on cosmetics or bells and whistles.
The focus is on the stuff that makes music: the guts, the circuitry, the power supply; not on cosmetics or a bunch of options that most people don’t really need. In order to keep the price down the design simple but functional. The chassis is aluminum not steel'. The faceplate is the standard Blue Circle stainless steel.
There are only three single-ended line-level inputs, no tape loops or preamp outs. The front panel has only a power button, a laser-trimmed Alps volume control, and an input selector. There is just one set of speaker terminals on the back panel. But if you take a look under the hood where it really counts, you will see that this is not a typical entry-level amplifier.
The CSD preamp section is based on the BC reference quality BC107 line stage preamp. This precision-biased class A/B single-ended parallel topology was developed by Gilbert Yeung and is exclusive to Blue Circle Audio. The output stage is derived from
a unique class D design that he developed for the new 2K series of power amps. It produces an extremely conservative 145 watts into 8 Ω and 290 watts into 4 Ω. As with all Blue Circle components, power supply filtering is best described as very serious overkill.
There is plenty of gas in the tank of this little hot rod.
