World's First 1-Bit Amplifier

To convert an analog audio signal to digital form, 1-bit amplifier technology performs sampling at high speeds-approximately 2.8 million times per second, a rate 64 times faster than CDs. This sampling rate made it possible to reproduce sound as close to the original sound as possible.Because Sharp's 1-bit amplifier technology offered outstanding energy savings as well as high-quality sound and also made more compact equipment possible, Sharp went on to incorporate it into other AV equipment, such as AQUOS LCD TVs.
