Dan D'Agostino MAS Progression Integrated Amplifier


  Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems has begun shipping the Progression Integrated Amplifier, the latest addition to the award-winning Progression Series. The Progression Integrated combines the elegance and detail retrieval of the Progression Preamplifier with the power and dynamic capability of the Progression amplifier topology housed in a chassis the exudes the D'Agostino aesthetic. Built on a modular platform, the Progression Integrated fills every need of today's music listener and audiophile.

The analog base unit provides two RCA single ended inputs and three XLR balanced inputs including a theater pass through. Balanced preamplifier outputs make for convenient inclusion of subwoofer(s) into a system. The Bluetooth Remote control connectivity, first used in the Progression and Momentum HD Preamplifiers, is included as part of the base package. Bluetooth connectivity eliminates line of sight issues and extends the usable range 5x versus conventional IR remote controls.

"The Progression Integrated adds another level of performance, feature set, and pricing to our product lineup. It provides our customers an opportunity to experience a fully featured offering within the D'Agostino product line at a more attainable price point", said D'Agostino Audio President, Bill McKiegan.

The heart and soul of the Progression Integrated Amplifier is essential Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems' technologies including discrete, balanced, direct coupled circuitry married to a substantial output stage delivering 200 Wpc into 8 Ohms and 400 Wpc into 4 Ohms. The foundation of the Progression Integrated Amplifier is a traditional line stage integrated amplifier suitable for all analog sources except turntables. If a turntable is part of the current system or added in the future, an optional moving coil phonostage module can be included at the time of production or added at a later date.

For those listeners keen to incorporate digital playback within the same unit, an optional digital module, adding a full suite of capability, is also available. Eliminating external connections, gain stages, and additional components offers distinct sonic advantages. S/PDIF coaxial, TosLink optical, and USB physical inputs join Ethernet and wireless connectivity for in house network and internet streaming capability. Digital resolution includes support for files up to DSD256 and 24-bit/192kHz PCM accuracy.

As part of the digital module technologies, Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer, and Spotify streaming subscription services are available. For use with appropriately encoded streaming music files, MQA decoding is standard. Customized apps for iOS devices provide easy control of music collections, streaming content, and unit control. Roon Music management is also available as an alternative music management program.

From the outside, the Progression Integrated Amplifier is pure Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems. Substantial power output requires proper cooling for optimal operation and long term reliability. The Progression Integrated Amplifier is equipped with the elegantly efficient heat sinks reminiscent of the flagship Relentless Mono Amplifier. Finished in either anodized silver or black Aluminum, the Progression Integrated Amplifier like all D'Agostino components, are hand built by our staff of music lovers and technicians in our Cave Creek, Arizona facility.

The Progression Integrated Amplifier is available now with a USA price of $18,000 for the analog base model, $20,000 for the analog model with optional phono stage, $23,000 for the analog model with optional digital module, and $25,000 for the unit equipped with the optional phono stage and digital module.
