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 platform provides two single ended inputs and three balanced inputs including a theater pass through. Balanced preamplifier outputs make for convenient inclusion of subwoofer(s) into a system. An optional moving coil phono module adds turntable playback to the list of features. 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.
An optional digital module vaults the Progression Integrated into the cutting edge of today’s digital listening environment. The digital enhancement adds connectivity for legacy sources, both source and host USB functionality, and premier streaming functionality. Field upgradeable, the digital module adds two SPDIF coaxial, two Optical, USB-A, USB-B, and RJ-45 inputs. Roon music management with Tidal, Qobuz, and MQA digital technologies are all available features. A fully differential DAC handles PCM signals up to 24 bit/192 KHz and DSD signals up to 4xDSD (11.2 MHz).
Robust enough to drive virtually any loudspeaker, the Progression Integrated outputs 200W into 8 Ohms and 400W into 4 Ohms. A unique toroidal winding technology, first employed in the Momentum M400 amplifier, delivers greater power output from a similarly sized conventional transformer keeping the Progression Integrated surprisingly small for its capability. Internal circuitry filters RF noise from the AC powerline and compensates for asymmetric power waveforms and DC on the mains.
Two analog meters, inspired by Swiss watch faces, function as signal level meters during music playback. When volume is adjusted, the meter needles change to volume setting indicators.
After adjustments are made, the meters revert back to signal level operation. The meters also function as balance, phase, and mute indicators.
No name is more closely associated with high-end audio amplifiers than that of Dan D’Agostino. During his career of more than 30 years, D’Agostino pioneered countless advances in the design of amplifiers, preamplifiers, CD players, and surround-sound processors. He is known as the audio industry’s most passionate promoter of highquality, high-powered amplification. Makers of the world’s finest loudspeakers rely on D’Agostino-designed amplifiers for their most important demonstrations.
Dan D’Agostino was founder and chief engineer of Krell Industries through 2009. Now, he embarks on a completely fresh start with a new organization and new state-of-the-art designs. The products that bear his name not only achieve new levels of sound quality, they also look like nothing he has built before—more compact, more distinctive, and more living-room-friendly.
The new Dan D’Agostino products also reflect his concern for the environment—an attitude uncommon in an industry where some amplifiers consume hundreds of watts even when they’re not in use. Through innovative power-supply design, Dan D’Agostino products consume only the slightest trickle of power at idle, so they run cooler and save energy.
The greatest testimony to the quality of D’Agostino’s new project, though, is that his name—in fact, his very signature—graces the front of each and every Dan D’Agostino product. Everything he has learned in decades of design and engineering the finest audio equipment has gone into the Momentum.
As impressive as these designs may sound on paper, the only way you can truly appreciate their warmth, detail and unmatched beauty is to hear them at your nearest Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems dealer.
