CA-401 2 Channel Power Amplifier. 400 Watts Per Channel. This is Classe's
Monster Amplifier! If you know anything about Classe this one is Phenomenal!
Will drive ANY speakers with ease. Exceptional depth, clarity, imaging, and
detail! Please see all photos. Also Includes 6' Isoclean Focus Power Cord. If you have any questions please feel free to
ask. Due to the weight will need to be shipped via UPS Ground. Will be packed for a NO damage arrival using 2" thick high density foam core and corner supports. Local Pick-up is of course welcome.

Audio's achievements are reflected by our worldwide reputation for unsurpassed
musical performance, reliability, consistency, and overall value. Classé's
philosophy is one of technological evolution, not revolution. Building on what
we know works. The new Classé CA-401 was developed using the knowledge gained
during the research for the spectacular OMEGA Series amplifiers.
knew we were embarking on a great adventure when we started the cost-no-barrier
design exercise which culminated in the development of the OMEGA Series of
amplifiers and preamplifiers. Through the exercise we discovered the
revolutionary OMEGA circuit designs, with the result that each product in the
OMEGA Series has no sonic equal.
new CA-401 benefits greatly from a trickle-down of technology from the OMEGA
Series, and represents on its own a long step forward in amplifier design. Each
channel of the amplifier is balanced from input to output, much like an OMEGA,
and the amplifier has an oversized, superbly regulated power supply, again much
like a OMEGA
CA-401 is balanced from input to output, resulting in a greatly enhanced signal
to noise ratio, lower induced common-mode distortion, lower distortion overall,
and freedom from grounding problems. The power supply of a CA-401 includes a
massive, shielded toroidal transformer. For each channel we use a large
collection of small power supply capacitors. Small capacitors "drain"
and "refill" extremely rapidly and completely, supplying all the
power required when the source demands it, with no bounce or overshoot. The
fast, clean power supply allows us a higher degree of accurate voltage
regulation at all stages of amplification. Thus no matter what program material
is being played, at no matter what level, the voltages at all amplification
stages remain completely stabile.
oversized, fast, very high current power supply allows the amplifier to deliver
the full current and voltage required to even the most difficult speaker load.
The CA-401 delivers sound which is clean, liquid and effortless. Imaging, with
the better recordings we all enjoy listening to, is both wide and deep. In
fact, imaging seems real and human, without the artificial hard edges so common
in lesser amplification.
Classé CA-401 will open your ears again. It will give those favorite
recordings, the ones you've gotten used to, that same ability to surprise and
delight they had when you first heard them. Just sit down and listen, you will
