Discrete Circuit

Discrete Circuit refers to the electronic circuit that is configured of one transistor, one resistor, one capacitor, one diode, and one each of the other parts. Unlike an IC chip, these parts can be carefully selected, combined, and adjusted to suit the features of the circuit and achieve high-grade performance. In acoustic devices, this Discrete Circuit is used in the power amp and audio sections whose main purpose is to deliver high-quality sound. The aim of this circuit is thus to improve sound quality.
