Essential Info

The Big Joe 3 Digital Power Amplifier from Firestone Audio is a compact and beautifully engineered Class-D amplifier that delivers clear and crisp audio from virtually any analog or digital source. The Big Joe 3 provides 20W of power, which may not sound like a lot, but is more than sufficient to play your audio at levels that are suitable for yourself, family members, or roommates. The numerous inputs on the rear of the unit allow you to plug in multiple sources. Hook it up directly to your computer through USB, through an optical input from your CD player, or through the analog line-in from your iPod. There is even a digital coax line-in. On the front of the Big Joe 3 is a source input selector with LED indicator. This unit comes with two RJ45 to RCA speaker cables with built-in banana plug tips so you can hook in your favorite home speakers.

No matter if you have optical, coaxial or USB connectivity, this unit will convert the digital signal to clean analog audio and amplify that sound with 20W per channel of power. With it's Fi-reclock technology, the amount of jitter is reduced and you will experience audio that you will bath in for hours on end.
