Montréal, Québec, Canada -Sept. 2005 -The latest member of Classé Audio's acclaimed Delta family of audio and audio -video components is a five -channel power amplifier, the CA -5100. With five high -performance channels of 100 watts each (minimum; all channels driven simultaneously), the newest Classé amplifier brings the advantages of the Canadian maker's internationally respected Delta -range -unexcelled performance, superb, audiophile -grade sonics, and unmatched quality of components and manufacture -to a broader range of high -end home -theater system designers and enthusiasts.
With a conservatively rated 100 watts per channel and substantial low -impedance drive capability, the CA -5100 is ideally suited as a main amplifier for home -theater installations where the higher power of its 5x200 -watt sibling the CA -5200, or of multiple amplifier components is not required. Nonetheless, the new model retains the massive power -supply design and enormous current reserves of its Delta -range predecessors, featuring an entirely separate supply for control and AC -monitoring systems, and three current -rich, fully discrete audio supplies devoted to front/rear -left, front/rear -right, and center channels, an arrangement Classé has determined to optimize dynamic potential and sonic integrity. Like all the Delta -series power amps, the CA -5100 design performs effortlessly regardless of the demands placed upon it, including the most taxing combinations of difficult loudspeaker loads and challenging source material.
The CA -5100 incorporates both balanced (XLR) and single -ended (RCA) inputs for each of its five channels, and these are selectable from the front panel, or via the amplifier's bi -directional RS -232 control, permitting, for example, "smart" connection of both a purist preamplifier and sophisticated surround processor simultaneously.
Infrared -control, CAN BUS, and DC -trigger control connections are also on tap, making the newest Classé among the most configurable and easily integrated power amplifiers available.
Like its Delta siblings, the CA -5100 is crafted entirely at Classé's Quebec facilities, employing best -available componentry and materials throughout, and finished to the exquisite standards that have established the firm's unassailable quality reputation worldwide. The Classé Delta series CA -5100 power amplifier will be available in September, 2005 at a manufacturer's suggested price of $5,000 (US).
