In five -channel mode, it delivers 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms, 300 watts into 4 ohms, and 400 watts into 2 ohms, each with less than 0.15 percent THD. Power handling at the 2 -ohm level is completely stable. At seven channels, the HTA 5.1 can deliver 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms. Frequency response for the amplifier is 20 Hz -20 kHz +/ - 0.1 dB, or 10 Hz -100 KHz +/ - 3dB. The signal -to -noise ratio is - 100dB, unweighted.

The amplifier's True Card cage design accommodates up to seven mono block power modules that glide on Nylon rails, and feature low -noise toroid power transformers with high -speed rectifiers. Additional features include, transparent and integrated soft clip circuitry, soft start circuitry, a soft touch power switch for silent turn on/turn off, signal - and remote -sensing automatic turn -on. Premium quality aluminum capacitors insure high reliability and performance, and an ultra -quiet, module -mounted fan assures cool operation.
