The AP10P forms the base of our integrated amplifiers. This is a single input basic low powered personal amplifier of very high sound quality.

The 'P' in this instance stands for 'Personal' and is simply the AP10H with the addition of a pair of loudspeaker outlets. This amplifier is a very simple, minimalist design intended for use with a single source (it has one pair of RCA input sockets). Rated at 15w/channel it may not satisfy the Heavy Metal fans amongst us, but when used within its power envelope - especially with efficient speakers - its quality of musical reproduction is a joy, addictive even. A great introduction to the NVA amplifier range.

NVA AP10P Specifications:

Inputs - One line level

'If ever a small UK manufacturer has ploughed a lone furrow, it is NVA. Now the indomitable Richard Dunn comes up with a direct-selling amplifier for those on a tight budget.'

Hi-Fi News & Record Review (July 1997)

This amplifier is designed to provide an extremely high quality dynamic output. The unit should remain powered-up indefinitely for best sound and power consumption is minimal. Connect a CD player to your AP10P and marvel at what you've been missing.

Warranty is for two years parts and labour and after that a further three years it will be repaired on a no profit / cost basis.

Available in 120v or 240v please stipulate on purchase.

Only NVA LS1, LS2, LS3, LS5, LS6 and LS7 is recommended for use with this amplifier, other cables will invalidate the warranty.

For best sound the amplifier should be left powered up. Electricity consumption is very low. It is for this reason that the power switch is located on the back panel, where it may not be easy to reach. Turn the amplifier off when you do not intend to listen to it for extended periods.

NVA amplifiers are unique, and one thing that makes them so is the minimal compensation for the output stage. It is very possible to send this amplifier into oscillation by connecting too large a capacitive load on the output, the usual culprit being unsuitable speaker cable such as Litz or Goertz type constructions.

If you insist on using other cable (this will invalidate warranty) please ensure it is no more than 200pf per metre and it should not be used in lengths over 10 metres. If you wish to Bi-Wire this can only be done with NVA cable and they can be made that way on order for a small added cost.

For design performance only NVA Sound Pipe, Super Sound Pipe or Sound Cord Interconnects should be used, but this is for sonic as opposed to safety reasons.
