One chassis - One channel. The monaural Classé CAM-350 is developed using the knowledge gained from the development of our spectacular OMEGA Series amplifiers. Now you can place each channel right at each speaker. This enables you to have very short speaker wire lengths to each speaker, no matter whether it is driving a center channel, or a fine two channel system, or all the channels of a five or six or more surround sound setup.
We knew we were embarking on a great adventure when we started the cost-no-barrier design exercise that culminated in the development of the OMEGA Series of amplifiers and preamplifiers. Through the exercise we discovered the revolutionary OMEGA circuit design, which has no sonic equal. We have been using variations of the OMEGA circuitry on several new amplifiers, including the CA-201, CA-301, CA-401 and the five channel CAV-500.
The CAM-350 has inherited many of the sonic benefits of the technology of our OMEGA discoveries, and it represents on its own a long step forward in amplifier design. Each CAM-350 is a true symmetrical circuit, and is balanced from input to output, much like an OMEGA. The amplifier has an oversized, superbly regulated power supply, and a multitude of fast, high current output devices.
Because the CAM-350 is balanced from input to output it has a greatly enhanced signal to noise ratio, lower induced common-mode distortion, and freedom from grounding problems.
The power supply of a CAM-350 includes a massive, shielded toroid transformer and a large number of small capacitors. Each amplifier uses a large collection of small sized high-value power supply capacitors. Small capacitors "drain" and "refill" extremely rapidly and completely, supplying all the power required when the source demands it. A faster, cleaner power supply allows us a higher degree of accurate voltage regulation throughout the circuitry. This ensures that no matter what program material is being played at whatever level, the power supply voltages at all the various stages of amplification will remain constant.
The fast, oversized power supply allows the amplifier to deliver the full current and voltage required to virtually any load. The CAM-350 delivers sound that 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.
The Classé CAM-350 will give your favorite recordings and Movies a new life. It will be as if everything you hear is new and you will be able to listen to them again and again.
