Brand new, factory sealed conrad-johnson CA150
control amplifier. "I’ve listened to a lot of different amplifier designs this issue . . . . None have been quite so approachable, so listenable, and just so damn enjoyable as the conrad-johnson CA150."--Alan Sircom, Hi-Fi+
. Nearly a decade ago, with the release of the CA200, conrad-johnson introduced the concept of a control amplifier – a power amplifier with level control and source selectors. The control amplifier is identical in function to an integrated amplifier, but without the additional distortions that would be inherent in a superfluous line-stage. Conrad-Johnson now continues that tradition with their latest product introduction, the CA150 control amplifier. The CA150 combines the circuitry of their popular MF2275 power amplifier with source selector circuits and a Burr-Brown precision level control, eliminating the need for (and distortions of) a preamplifier and preamp to amp interconnect cables. The design of input stage of the conrad-johnson solid-state amplifiers make them ideal for this application. They do not suffer the loss of dynamics and high frequency roll-off that plague many amplifier designs when used without a preamp. What you get is clean, transparent, dynamic, effortless reproduction of whatever you put at the inputs. "The sound of this amplifier is so effortless, so unforced, that it just
gets out of the way of the music it is reproducing"--Alan Sircom, Hi-Fi
Plus, Issue 132. With full remote control of all functions, and 7 line level inputs, including an EPL (tape) loop and Theater loop, the CA150 offers all the flexibility of our separate line-stage preamplifiers. And, with a rated output of 135 watts/channel, the CA150 has ample power for the majority of speaker systems. Click here for More Information and Specifications
