When you think about it, Monaural Amplifiers make more sense today than they ever have. A monaural amplifier can be placed close to its speaker, or easily hidden in a nearby equipment closet. A single, unbridged, high current, channel can be added to drive the theatres all-important center speaker. Classé has been building single channel amplifiers for nearly two decades, so it should be no surprise when a new one is announced.
The new CAM-200 comes off the same drawing board as the immensely successful CAM-350. It's housed in a compact chassis, but the brute force power-supply will deliver 200 watts into 8 ohms, and easily double to 400 watts into 4 ohms. The CAM-200 amplifier is not designed to be just a theater amp; it has both power and finesse. It has speed without dynamic compression.
The CAM-200 is a very flexible audio tool. The CAM-200's sound will convince any audiophile the amplifier belongs in a stand alone two-channel, critical listening system, just as it's big twin the CAM-350 does. Five of the powerful CAM-200s can be used to drive a complete Home Theater that will be the envy of any neighborhood. Three can be added to an existing killer two-channel system to construct a whole world- class listening environment. With more and more music appearing in multi-channel formats, the true High End listener wants real sound coming out of all the speakers, not just the front ones on the left and right. Give this new amplifier a little listen, it will probably be just what your ears were waiting for.

All new Classé PCB circuit boards with "UHC TRANSFER" characteristics. True symmetrical, differential amplifier circuits from input to output. Thick brushed Soft Shadow Silver faceplate with Satin Black middle plate.
