SAM: Speaker Active Matching

A game-changing innovation, SAM® enables Expert Pro to produce a signal ideally suited to your exact speaker model, thanks to advanced mathematical modeling of its acoustic architecture determined by SAM Lab. With perfect temporal alignment and greater extension into low-end frequencies, the sound stage is exquisite. Revolutionary, SAM® technology ensures you get the best from your speakers while providing permanent protection from overload. 800+ speaker models are now SAM-ready, and yours are certainly among them.

RAM: Record Active Matching

The most advanced phono stage ever created. With next-generation RAM® technology, your Expert Pro phono stage becomes instantly and endlessly configurable, working in real-time to custom fit the exact characteristics of your turntable or vinyl records.
