Listed conservatively at 200 watts per channel times five channels, the Classe Audio CA-5200 is what we could call a beast of an amplifier. It mainly operates as a traditional class AB amp but, at lower outputs, the Classe' engineers have figured out a way to make the amps run as a class-A amp (no pun intended), which reportedly reduces some of the noise associated with class AB switching, not that you can hear any audible noise when auditioning the Classe' CA-5200, as this power amp runs very, very quietly. The Toroidal transformer (the heart and soul of any good class AB amp) is custom-made and extra-beefy, yet the Classe' CA-5200 runs cool as a cucumber.

Questions for the seller
Hi I am interested in this amp as I missed out on a CA 5300 that sold a week ago on Audiogon. Anyways are u the original owner? When did u purchase it? How long have u owned it? Has it ever been cleaned n serviced internally?
I am the 2ed owner it was bought brand new 7 years ago in ft worth texas. I bought it about 3 years ago from a bitter ex-wife. It was professionally cleaned a year a go by Fort Worth audio as I moved homes flight took all of my equipment there to have them look over in service if need be during my move. It was looked at but was not in need of service.
