Classe SIGMA 2200i Integrated amp(200/[email protected]/4)::
STEREOPHILE Class “A” rated component for 2018, and 2019 !!!
Read the very many absolutely STELLAR reviews online, on this integrated. Also, this unit has Apple/Android app which is AMAZING...check out just a few of the screens in my pics...it’s Incredible. The screen shots are from my Sigma SSP, but the 2200i integrated uses the same app.
NEW, Factory sealed, never opened unit, with original receipt, from Classe AUTHORIZED dealer.
From Classe Website:
Your Classé Sigma unit has a 5-year Limited Product Warranty on Manufacturing Defects that covers both Material and Labor.
Please note that the Classé Limited Warranty is only valid in the Country of Purchase.
Please make sure to keep your original Purchase Receipt.
The 5-year Limited Warranty is transferable to a next owner. When selling your unit, please hand the original purchase receipt to the next owner.”
I have had this unit less than 2 months...since purchasing NEW, so you have TONS of warranty period left…:-)
I have the Classe Sigma SSP MK2 with Sigma AMP 5 (same amp/preamp modules as integrated CA-D200). The sound is very detailed, superb imaging, deep wide soundstage, organic, palpable, slightly warm sounding...which I love. Does not sound digital in the slightest ! Actually sounds a little bit (in the best of ways) like a tube amp…..but with GODZILLA level power.
The Sigma 2200i Stereo Integrated Amplifier is designed for music lovers and AV enthusiasts who want high performance control and amplification from a diverse range audio sources. Its connectivity and processing power accommodate the ever increasing array of music and AV sources, allowing them to be accessed and enjoyed without compromise.
The Sigma 2200i is a powerful stereo integrated amplifier with features like USB and Network streaming, HDMI 2.0 switching and bass management to accommodate the evolving needs of a modern hi-fi system.
It leverages the technical and performance advantages of our Sigma series separates to punch seriously above its weight class. As an integrated amplifier, the 2200i combines preamp and power amp functions in a single chassis. What’s special is its direct digital connection between the preamp section and the amplifier, which eliminates losses by removing digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital conversions from the signal path.
The preamp section of the 2200i features connectivity and circuit blocks found in the Delta series CP-800 and Sigma SSP. Inputs include fully balanced (XLR) and single-ended (RCA) analog with optional MM/MC phono, digital coax, optical, USB host and device, Ethernet for streaming and IP control and HDMI switching. Techniques like asynchronous synchronization and master clock mode allow us to manage the digital clocks for low jitter and high signal integrity. Analog sources are converted at 24/96 to preserve their original bandwidth and dynamic range.
Digital Signal Processing is available to all sources; youcan use it for bass management with a subwoofer to fill dipsin the frequency response in your room while a nine-band parametric EQ can simultaneously eliminate the frequency response peaks; a customizable tone control can tame
or add life to your less-than-perfect recordings. It all adds up to better sound from every recording in any room.
Unlike outboard DACs and preamp/processors that mustoutput analog signals for volume control and amplification,the 2200i leverages the true digital architecture of ourproprietary Classé switching amplifier design, connectingthe output of the preamp DSP directly to the DSP input ofthe amplifier. There aren’t any DACs or ADCs nor is thereany unnecessary analog circuitry between. The signal path is as short and direct as possible; signals remain digital allthe way to the amplifier output filters.
From the DSP input to the speaker terminals the amplifierportion of the 2200i is the same as an AMP2 or CA-D200. The input signal comes direct from the preamp DSP, remain- ing in the digital domain throughout. Managing the switching technology to achieve <3 nanoseconds of dead-band time, the 2200i boasts the same low distortion broad-band perfor-mance as our separate amplifiers.1
Power is supplied by Classé’s proprietary switch modepower supply with power factor correction. With over 1,000W available, the 2200i coasts through passages that wouldbring lesser amplifiers to their knees. In addition to supplyingclean, rock-steady voltage to the circuitry, this supply pullspower cleanly and efficiently from the wall. And even
if you don’t worry about power consumption, you will benefitfrom the performance and reliability achieved from thecomparatively cool-running circuitry contained in the 2200i’smodestly sized chassis.
A front panel touchscreen and both Android and Apple apps provide sophisticated yet intuitive control. DLNA and AirPlay streaming are supported over the Network connection and AV switching with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 allows convenient support of set top boxes, games and disc players. Whatever you want to listen to, you can be sure that the 2200i will stand ready to deploy its arsenal of resources, remain faithful to the music and reliably deliver many years of listening pleasure.
CAVEAT: I normally test all my gear thoroughly for proper functionality just before selling. Since this unit is still FACTORY SEALED, I am not able to do that. Any issues, MUST be taken up with Classe, under warranty, which you still have greater than 95% of the 5 year warranty to do that. This unit is NON-RETURNABLE to me. The original receipt, from FACTORY AUTHORIZED dealer is included with sale, should, in the unlikely event, you would need it for warranty purposes.
Reason for sale: I now live in a small townhouse, and no longer have room for a dedicated stereo rig...:-(
PLEASE READ MY LEGENDARY, PERFECT FEEDBACK....and be at ease with your purchase.
PAYPAL & Credit Cards!!!! (paypal/credit card fees (less than paypal) fees, if any, are buyer's responsibility ), BUT will accept personal check from TOP rated Audiogoners, with great feedback (at my discretion)
International shippers are responsible and must set up their own shipment, and email me the shipping label....I'm not setting up the international shipping.
SHIPPING: Audiogon often charges too little. I only charge ACTUAL shipping fees, and may ask for a little extra.
