Technology / Home Audio / Dc Converter: Since 12 volts limits the amplitude of an audio signal, a group of components within an amplifier converts battery voltage (DC) into AC so that it can be increased by swetching devices and a transformer, and converted back to DC (rectified). This provides higher voltage to drive the amplification stage to higher power. Also called the Power Supply circuit.
