I'm the original owner. Purchased from Zzounds in October 2020. Amplifier is in near mint condition with no scratches, scuffs, nicks, etc. anywhere on it. It was used to power a pair of KEF LS50 speakers in a computer audio system in a smoke/pet free home. I switched to powered speakers, so the amp is not needed. All original items (boxes, manual, packing, etc.) included.
From the Avantone Pro website: The Avantone Pro CLA-200 Studio Reference Amplifier is a classically designed Class A/B amplifier. We took particular care to create an amplifier in the traditional studio style, with generous VU meters, high quality Japanese components and a serious toroidal transformer linear power supply. In a standard 2U rack mount chassis, this amplifier can generate over 200 watts per channel into an 8 ohm load, making it perfect for medium to large speakers in a studio environment. The CLA-200 is convection cooled – no fan noise, so it can be used in the same room as the monitors.
The Avantone Pro CLA-200 Studio Reference Amplifier is a dynamic, high output, high resolution, full-range system built the old school way. We included no-compromise components in a 2U convection cooled chassis to complement our CLA-10 Studio Reference Monitors. Of course, it can be used with any passive studio monitor requiring serious dynamic range.
The CLA-200 Studio Reference Amplifier is designed to be used in a studio environment requiring high power output with no fan noise. Under testing, it delivers a powerful 208 watts into 8 ohms and can run at one third power without thermal fault. The CLA-200 has zero fan noise, as it’s convection cooled — which makes it perfectly suited for control room installation.
