Under 8-ohm load, 10% distortion can output 42Wx2, and 1% distortion can output 35W x2, which can meet daily use. For analog signals of different strengths, MX5 provides three options of sensitivity to ensure that the signal can be accurately detected, which greatly expand the scope of application.
In order to adapt to input signals with different strengths, MX5 provides two step gain settings for both power amplifier and headphone amplifier. The gain can be set on the remote control. MX5 has Built-in EQ function to adjust treble and bass, providing adjustable ranges from -10dB to + 10dB respectively.
