Power Amplifier PURIFI 1ET400A 2x400W 4 Ohm

We are proud to present AUDIOPHONICS HPA-S400ET, a class D stereo power amplifier based on two PURIFI 1ET400A modules. This ready-to-use version is designed for audiophiles needing a foolproof amplification solution, with a considerable power reserve as well as impeccable linearity. The PURIFI modules are indeed among the most rigorous Class D amplification solutions on the market, with simply exceptional measured performance.

This device offers high level sound reproduction which will be suitable to drive demanding speakers, to sonorize large listening rooms or for studio applications requiring a considerable headroom without compromising on the precision and richness of the audio message.

All of the components are integrated in a sober and robust 100% Aluminum housing with openings and heatsinks to help heat dissipation. Its design also allows it to block signal interference.

Dual PURIFI 1ET400A module

  • Both channel of the amplification circuit uses its own PURIFI 1ET400A module. These high performance Class D amplifier circuits each offer a very comfortable power of 200W (@ 8Ω) while making the most of Class D amplifiers high efficiency rating.
  • The 1ET400A modules has a >75dB high gain loop over the entire frequency band, providing high performance across the whole spectrum and surpassing any amplifier regardless of its class.
  • Thanks to hyper-low intermodulation distorsion (IMD) the HPA-S400ET achieves incredible precision on its stereophonic image over the whole spectrum, unmatched by audio amplifiers of any technology or operating class.
  • THD remains extremely low at any frequency and any power level right until clipping. This translates into a total lack of sonic signature, and an ability to reproduce any type of music without preference for genre or production style.
  • The output noise is negligible, which allows deep silences and prevents losing details when listening at low volume.
  • The circuit benefits from a high level of rejection (PSRR) which minimizes the impact of power supply on audio performance.
  • Load-invariant frequency response and negligible output impedance enables the HPA-S400ET to drive the most demanding speakers with ease.
  • Very low idle losses and reduced electromagnetic interference (EMI). The High loop gain allows relaxed timing of the power MOSFETs without degrading audio performance.
  • The HPA-S400ET uses these amplifier modules with an interface card specially developed for optimal integration.

Power Module Hypex SMPS1200A400

The SMPS1200 switching power supply is a model with very high maximum output power of 1200 Watts. It has been specifically designed and developed by Hypex to provide 2 x 64V voltage required for operation of the most demanding amplifier modules.

This low noise high quality Power supply, meets every energy needs of the amplification modules.

Audiophonics Interface Card

Both modules are driven in opposite phase, to cancel out the «Power-Supply Pumping» effect. This allows greater stability in the power supply by alternately distributing current draws on each rail, thus increasing its overall capacities.

We opted for a two stage voltage regulation in order to optimize the power supply to the OPAs and the auxiliary voltage supplied to the modules. 

A Texas Instrument LM4562 OPA per channel is used, these are very low distortion AOPs offering the greatest transparency with a very low THD. They are mounted on socket allowing their replacement if necessary

To suit all uses we opted for 3 gain settings, adjustable by jumper on the interface board.


Designed for easy integration, the HPA-S400ET has a balanced stereo (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) input. Bipolar selectors make it easy to change the input source and even allow independent channel control.

On output side, BP-207 Carbon / Gold 24K Ø5.5mm speaker terminals ensure excellent connection with the speakers.

A trigger module allows the amplifier to be switched on automatically from a distance. This is compatible with voltages from 5 to 12V.

Test du Audiophonics HPA-S400ET par Audio Science Review (Amir)

The Audiophonics HPA-S400ET comes in a beautiful package with super performance to match its good looks. Yes, it builds on Purifi's excellent platform but they managed to add value without messing with its performance. The gain settings are well thought through. The whole thing is so well executed and must be a delight to our European members who can buy it locally. Having been built in France, it is also a feather in the cap of our French members. I am happy to give my strongest recommendation to Audiophonics HPA-S400ET. You have a lot of power with superb fidelity and transparency.

Amplificateur transparent et neutre
Qualité de construction excellente mais les ailettes de refroidissement sont presque coupantes, doc attention en le manipulant.
Utilisé avec le gain de 26 dB qui est le réglage proposé par défaut. Pour l'instant, seul mon dac et ses sources sont utilisées.
La restitution est transparente et neutre. Les bons enregistrements sont très bien restitués, mais les mauvais sonnent comme tels.
Comme il n'apporte aucune couleur spécifique au signal qu'il retranscrit, il n'y a donc aucun enjolivement comme peut le faire un amplificateur à tubes.
C'et l'amplificateur le plus transparent que j'ai entendu.
C'est certainement la vraie fidélité par rapport au signal qui lui est envoyé,
Par conséquent cela permet de constater la performance véritable des enceintes raccordées.
En cas de restitution qui serait systématiquement insatisfaisante, c'est le reste du système audio qui doit être mis en cause, à commencer par les enceintes.
Aucune zone du spectre n'est mise en avant, mais aucune n'est atténuée, en particulier le grave.
Je ne pensais pas qu'il y aurait un tel écart avec mon amplificateur intégré à tubes malgré ses qualités.
Ne justifie aucune des préventions contre la classe D.

Une révélation en matière de transparence, de fluidité et de détails
Je souhaitais avoir un amplificateur de puissance Hi-Fi qualitatif sur mon système multicanal (j’écoute pas mal de vidéos, plutôt musique classique) et les deux enceintes colonnes Triangle Signature Delta qui sont dynamiques et brillantes dans l’aigu souvent associées à des amplis à tubes et assez exigeantes au niveau de l’électronique associée, mon amplificateur intégré multicanal est le Denon 8500HA plutôt adapté à ce type d’enceintes et assez neutre.
Un modèle Purifi, système d’amplification réputé pour leur neutralité et leur transparence ainsi que leur finesse musicale, s’avérait être une bonne option, mais généralement prix élevé comme chez NAD. Ce HP-S400 ET a retenu mon attention, prix intéressant et performances sonores impressionnantes (mesures et qualités musicales), les avis sur ce site ont fini par me convaincre, ainsi qu’un échange avec le conseiller d’Audiophonics.
Depuis que je l’ai connecté à mon système, jusqu’ici j’avais un Nuprime MCX (classe D également) plus usage Home Cinéma et musique, là, avec l’HP-S400 ET, j’avais des détails beaucoup plus fins et retranscrits précisément et un équilibre très naturel, très bonne spatialité (largeur et profondeur). Très agréable à écouter, musical, neutre et fluide, je pense vendre le Nuprime, sur cette catégorie d’ampli de puissance à moins de 2000 euros, peu de propositions de la part des constructeurs.
Cet Audiophonics a une valeur exceptionnelle à mon avis, sa facilité à fonctionner avec beaucoup de configurations (préamplis et enceintes), je ne pense qu’il y a peu de concurrents à son niveau en classe D, très pratique lorsque l’on n’a pas l’espace suffisant pour des amplificateurs plus volumineux et lourds comme les classes AB ou A. De plus, pour ceux qui s’en servent sur une configuration Hi-Fi avec un meilleur préamplificateur, la qualité sonore doit être encore plus élevée.

A hell of an amplifier
This my first Class D amplifier, I enjoy it now for 15 months. And oh boy what a clean, powerfull and beautiful device it is! Well built, beautiful design. No remote contol but it has tirgger in/out so... no worries. Still one remark about the design related to ones health: Lifting it up be advised because the cooling fins are sharp, one could cut oneself.
Audiophonics did a great job building this amplifier and the very custom friendly approach is superb! Delevery was perfect as well.

A long-time user of only class A and tube amplifiers, this is a new great experience. I couldn't believe my ears how deep, wide and clean it sounds full of the most subtle informations, uniform and connected from bottom to the top into one huge picture full of beautiful natural details. This amp sounds just like your source, cables and speakers do.No less, no more,but beautifully big...Outstanding !!!. Perfect match with Topping pre90
