The new IC integrates a newly developed, full-time offset detection circuit. Conventional offset detection during sound reproduction is difficult. Toshiba’s new IC detects output DC offset voltage caused by leakage from the input capacitor and other sources, even during sound reproduction, and prevents speaker burnout.

The new IC integrates a current-feedback system of the type adopted in high-end hi-fi audio. This prevents sound quality degradation at wide bandwidths and offers consistent sound quality.
