FX-AUDIO D2160

FDA Amplifier Bluetooth TAS5614 2x65W 8Ω

fx-audio d2160

FX-Audio returns with a new Full Digital Amplifier (FDA) : the D2160 . This one is directly following its big brother, the FX-Audio D802C, proposing notably more power, audio performances always excellent and functionalities more accomplished.

TAS5614 & Quality components

The FX-Audio D2160 is based on a TAS5614 amplification chip . This allows this FDA to provide 2x65W at 8Ω or 2x125W at 4Ω. It provides clear and precise sound, while offering deep bass. Thus, the amplifier provides an SNR of -105dB, a THD of 0.04% and a frequency response of 20Hz - 20kHz. The TAS5614 is backed by a STM32 microcontroller (MCU)

Also included in this amplifier is a CM6642 USB chip, an ADC TI PCM1808 for the analog input, a Maxim MAX9722 amplification chip for the headphone output, and AKM AK4118 Toslink coaxial / optical receiver.

Bluetooth : Your music from your sofa

Equipped with a Bluetooth 4.2 CSR 64215 chip especially designed for audio, the FX-Audio D2160 will allow you to enjoy your music directly from your sofa. A simple pairing of your reading device (smartphone, tablet ...) to your amplifier and the music starts.

Furthermore, the Bluetooth chip standard 4.2 and its A2DP protocol ensures higher transmission speed and greater stability for better quality audio reproduction. More than that, the chip integrates the technologies aptX and aptX Low-Latency, allowing to reach a sound quality close to that of the CD.

An antenna supplied with the camera is attached to the rear to extend the transmission distance.

Effective audio features

The FX-Audio amplifier offers simple but very effective audio features. With its DSP TAS5548 , the device proposes to modify the bass and treble curve. A "HiFi" mode is also present, corresponding to a Direct Audio mode to bypass the DSP and enjoy a perfect respect of the original signal.

Complete connectivity

The D2160 offers a complete connection that will allow you to connect your system without worry. We thus find in input a Toslink Optics, a Coaxial, a USB-B and a Stereo RCA. An outlet can also connect the antenna to enjoy a greater transmission distance. Note also the presence of two DC Jack jacks, to provide the amplifier with a more stable current.

Output, nothing more simple since we found on one side connectors accepting banana plugs to connect your speakers, on the other a connector 6.35mm Jack to connect a headphone.

Double power supply

The D2160 can use up to two power supply simultaneously, such configuration can improve its performance even further thanks to a gain in power and stability. When two power supply are used, the RMS power can reach 160 Watts @ 6Ohms. Please note that the second power supply must imperatively be the same (36V 6A).

Audio Output

Output, nothing more simple since we found on one side connectors accepting banana plugs to connect your speakers, on the other a connector 6.35mm Jack to connect a headphone.

Remote control

It would be a shame to be able to stream your music directly from your couch but having to get up to change the source or adjust the volume, right? FX-Audio has thought and provided with the amp an IR remote control. This will allow you to access all the features of your device, namely control of volume and sources, adjusting the bass and treble or switching to "Hifi" or "Mute" mode.

A simple and strong design

The FX-Audio offers with its D2160 a simple design that allows it to integrate seamlessly into the vast majority of audio systems, while unveiling a stronger side with the integration on its sides of two heatsinks . Heatsinks that are also not irrelevant since they allow the amplifier to effectively evacuate the heat released.

With a 100% brushed aluminum housing, the amplifier promises to be robust and will perfectly protect the internal components of the dust.

FX-Audio D2160 review by Qobuz

" FX-Audio offers us two amplifiers in one. In Tone On mode, a device with a more or less modular restitution, a little round, softened and more or less convincing, it is up to everyone to decide. In Hi-Fi mode, a device with a sharp sound reproduction, as close to the signal as we like, and to which we would have granted our reward. "

complément gain
Complément à mon avis : bien qu'indiqué dans la notice, je ne savais pas ce que c'était que high/low gain, je pensais que celà servait uniquement pour les casques. En appuyant 3 secondes sur bouton télécommande gain/direct on passe en high gain, l'ampli devient plus puissant pour des colonnes à faible ou moyen rendement. Sans qu'il y ai de distortion. Sans ce réglage, on ne sentait pas les 2*110w en 8ohms.

Ampli très complet, excellente qualité sonore, des détails à améliorer.
Très bel ampli, manifestement très bien conçu, look et matériel, rien à dire.
utilisé avec des enceintes colonnes de rendement moyen, il remplit bien son rôle. Pas noté de distorsion.
Volume 0 à 100, musique écoutée au niveau 5-10 en optique coaxial, 15 pour le dac usb (pulseaudio linux mint ) entrée rca pour platine phono (avec ajout d'un préampli phono) ou d'un lecteur mp3 volume 25-30. Celà donne une idée pour des colonnes en 88db pour une écoute moyenne avec conversatiion possible.

L'entrée analogique rca n'est pas mauvaise, mais moins "puissante" que les coaxiaux et optique, il faut monter plus le volume si on branche une platine cd avec sortie rca. Pas de souffle.
mon entrée préférée est donc la spdif coaxial.
Cependant je l'utilise principalement sur son dac usb avec un mini pc pouvant gérer une grande audiotheque. Très bien.
Au niveau de la tonalité, mode hifi ou tone à privilégier, en tone, réglage aisé des graves et aigus avec la telecommande.

Ce qu'il manque : surpris de ne pas trouver un menu de réglage pour l'eclairage du lcd, et une mise en veille automatique. La plupart des concurrents ont ce genre de chose. Pas de firmware update non plus.

autre point amusant, un cable usb est fourni, très épais, blindé, tellement blindé que rien ne passe ! mon pc sous linux mint ne reconnaissait pas le dac de l'ampli, changement pour cable usb standard et reconnu de suite !

Addendum to review
I powered the D2160 with a 900W switching powersupply @ 36.0 Volts.

The bass was suddenly more preswent - dynamics restored. The sound was somewhere between the too-loose sound of 1 power supply and the no-bass sound of the 2 power supplies. However my 900W Lab. power supply emits a high pitched whine that makes music enjoyment impossible.

More experimentation will be needed. I would encourage others here with more training and experience than me to experiment with better power supplies.

A bientot!

A very interesting amplifier that does many things well.
I have spent several weeks listening to this amplifier.
I do not have experience with many high end amps. I have owned Adcom GFA-565s, Adcom GFA7607, and the class-D SMSL-98E.

This amplifier sounds drier, more accurate, more extended than any of these. However it is not my favorite.

It lacks the 'punch' of higher headroom amps. The bass tightens up considerably with a second power-supply, but then with my setup, it gets too tight.

Wondering what's going on, i decided to check the cable to the 36V power supply.

I'll not comment on this, not being an electrical engineer. But I will replace with my own power source and give results.

The haptics / usability of the amp is excellent. Simple, direct controls, one function per button. Very nice.

The Aux-In (analog-in) is much noisier than say, the SMSL-98E. Unusable for me.

Turning on the onboard EQ routes the audio through an analog stage, which is very interesting to compare with pure digital operation. I also found that with reduced treble and bass, the EQ'd audio is much more relaxing for long-term background-music listening. (Ears get tired with too much treble!)

It is an amazing sound, but I cannot say it is my favorite amp - i cannot help wondering what the Hypex units and more expensive pure-digital amps sound like.

Definitely not a party amplifier - this will not get them dancing. It is exceedingly interesting to experiment with 192khz though. I can hear differences to 48khz, which is downright scary.

Merci @ audiophonics.fr!

Amplificateur acheté pour mettre au repos mon "radiateur à tubes " durant la canicule !
La première écoute m'a parue très fade par rapport aux tubes. Mais après un mois de rodage ( ou d'accoutumance à ce nouveau son?) le résultat est correct avec un son qui remplit bien ma pièce d'ecoute.
le seul problème rencontré est une connexion Bluetooth très instable avec mon mac bookpro donc pas utilisable dans ces conditions. Pas de problème avec mes autres appareils Bluetooth.
