On its own, the SA3 is an excellent amplifier with a high demand for linearity. Playing value for money at an extreme level. Thanks to aptX transmission and the Wolfson converter in the amplifier, the Bluetooth dongle is practically a no-brainer.

If their authors are praised too effusively, the editor-in-chief sometimes puts on the brakes. But here I can counter with great certainty: "Find me a fully equipped, better processed, more powerful and more dynamic integrated amplifier for less than half a kiloeuro!" ..The SA3 is a stunner, SA3 and PA3 together are grenades! Anyone who likes to listen in a dynamic, gripping and physical way and appreciates a variety of sources, but doesn't want to become "poor" right away, should practice the correct pronunciation now at the latest: IOTAVX pronounces itself "Jota-Wie-Ex".

An exciting combination of stereo integrated amplifier and power amp
The IOTAVX SA3 integrated amplifier is a delight. In view of the fair price of only 449 euros, it offers first-class sound quality, a wide range of connections and plenty of power. If the power amplifier PA3 is then switched on, IOTAVX ignites the sound turbo. Whether on a low-efficiency compact loudspeaker or a head-high high-end speaker tower, this combination masters all types of demanding music reproduction. And all that at an affordable price. Class!

Integrated stereo amplifier IOTAVX SA 3 - high class sound at a great price
But alone, the SA 3 clearly exceeded our expectations. This integrated amplifier plays above the level of the middle class and also offers an excellent price / performance ratio considering its very good workmanship. - Review
There are countless stereo integrated amplifiers available on the market. In all price ranges, expansive or compact, the equipment is puristic or luxurious. The offer is almost impossible to survey. So why should you take a closer look at the IOTAVX SA3? Quite simply: It should be difficult to find a comparable technical quality for the internal structure and the assemblies used with other manufacturers in this price range. This high quality is still combined with a flat, cleanly processed and chic housing. The SA3 takes up little space, and despite its high performance, it integrates perfectly into practically any living space.
With 90 watts per channel (at 4 ohms), the IOTAVX SA3 provides enough power for the operation of loudspeakers that have only average efficiency. At the same time, it is not difficult to use the integrated amplifier in the larger listening room without restrictions. The built-in Class AB amplifier works with a high degree of efficiency, moreover it is impulse-true and low in distortion. The high quality components in the prepress ensure the shortest possible signal paths and a high acoustic purity. D / A converters from the well-known Wolfson brand ensure very precise conversion of digital signals into analog ones.
The equipment of the SA3 is also impressive. A Phono MM preamplifier, tone control for bass and treble range, five cinch inputs as well as an optical plus a coaxial digital input - everything the stereo fan needs is on board. A Bluetooth dongle is optionally available. In addition, the SA3 can be combined with the IOTAVX stereo power amplifier PA3 thanks to the appropriate connection options - then a whopping 180 watts per channel are available.
The SA3 integrated amplifier has a tone control, which enables an optimal adaptation of the sound to your listening room and your taste. Both the bass and the treble can be raised or lowered by up to 10 dB in 1 dB steps. In addition, the balance between the left and right loudspeaker can also be adjusted, here also in 10 steps to the left and 10 steps to the right.
IOTAVX Bluetooth Connectivity
In addition to the digital and analog connection options, music can be streamed directly to the SA3 by using the optional Bluetooth receiver module, from a smartphone or another Bluetooth-enabled device. This module is plugged directly into the extension port on the back of the SA3 and supports the latest Bluetooth AptX audio standard (CD quality).
The IOTAVX SA3 not only sounds fantastic, we also manufacture it with a heavy steel housing and high-quality components. This is how we ensure that you can enjoy your IOTAVX SA3 for a long time.
