PS Audio Debuts All -New Trio Audio Stereo Component Series at CES 2007 - Venetian Hotel, Tower Suite #29 -139
Featuring their acclaimed Gain CellTM technology, all -new Trio stereo component series features PS Audio's traditional twin hallmarks of performance and value.
Las Vegas, NV, Jan. 8 -11, 2007 - Thirty years after introducing the PS Audio Elite - the world's first high -end audio integrated amplifier - PS Audio debuts another benchmark in integrated amplifiers - the Trio C -100 Control Amplifier. At CES, in the Venetian Tower Suite #29 -139, CEO Paul McGowan and the PS Audio team will demonstrate the special advantages of the PS Audio Gain CellTM technology employed in all three Trio models - C -100 Control Amplifier; P -100 Preamplifier; and A -100 Power Amplifier.
PS Audio's McGowan said, "The Gain Cell is the single most revolutionary advancement in analog audio design since PS Audio was founded in 1973. Not just a gain stage, the Gain Cell represents an entirely new way of thinking about audio amplification.
Plus, by incorporating the same Gain Cell in all of our Trio products, we keep the performance high at class -leading levels. But equally as important to us and to our clients, we can lower the prices to within reach of nearly anyone who loves music."
Trio C -100 Control Amplifier
The C100 Control Amplifier is a simple and clean Control Amplifier. Based on Gain Cell technology for the gain control and ICE technology for the power amplifiers, this dual mono design is positioned to offer performance at a price not previously possible. It's US MSRP is $1595.
Each dual mono power amplifier channel produces 100 watts into 8 Ohms and 200 watts into 4 Ohms, with peaks that can reach 150 watts at the 8 Ohm level. Therefore, the C -100 can effortlessly drive nearly any loudspeaker pair.
McGowan again, "The C -100 is one of those products that can slip under the radar screen of some audiophiles. It looks clean, but not fancy; it has no esoteric quirks; it has a remote control; it doesn't weigh 150 lbs.; it doesn't heat up your room; and as high -end audio control amps go, it's pretty darned inexpensive. However, once folks hear it, even if they can afford a more expensive piece, they start figuring how they can incorporate the C -100 somewhere. It's that good!"
