The Basics If pure music is important to you, the Pioneer Elite A-20 Integrated Amplifier lets you build a serious two-channel system with money left over for speakers worthy of our impressive new integrated amplifier-and your discerning ear. Audiophiles know there's nothing better than a dedicated stereo system that presents pin-point imaging, an incredible soundstage and infinite sonic detail.

The heavy, aluminum front panel and clean industrial design make this one impressive piece of gear. Inside, premium parts like an EL transformer and heavy-duty heat sinks tell you the Pioneer engineers really over-delivered. Versatility The Elite A-20 has A/B and A plus B speaker switching or it can make a perfect addition to an Elite multi-zone AV receiver for whole home audio distribution. On the back, a full complement of RCA inputs includes SACD, tuner, tape recorder, auxiliary and even a moving magnet phono stage so you can have fun with vinyl. Perfect Pairing And now, you can build the most advanced audiophile-quality system by pairing the Elite A-20 with the Elite N-30 or N-50 Networked Audio Players to stream the highest-resolution, uncompressed music files.
