CP-47.5 PRE-AMPLIFIER

Classé Audio Inc. shares a dream with its clients- the true re-creation of a live performance. Our devotion to providing audio and home theater products of impeccable quality is an approach that a Hi-End audio magazine recently hailed as “a combination of art and science that exemplifies the best that high-end audio has to offer.” We have achieved a worldwide reputation for unsurpassed musicality of performance, remarkable reliability, beautiful execution of design, and for overall value. Classé's philosophy is one of technological evolution, not revolution, to always improve on what we know works. We design and build audio equipment that will last forever. It always looks brand new, while fitting into any décor

All Classé preamplifiers share elements of a single unique design. We begin with an exceptionally quiet, shielded toroid transformer designed to minimize magnetic hum fields. The ultra stable output is then fed into several stages of voltage regulation. As in our power amplifiers, we use numerous small, high quality capacitors for the voltage filtering stages. The result is an extremely clean, fast and stable power supply that easily follows the rapidly changing energy demands of music. The end result is a lightning quick response on transients, while providing fabulous dynamics coupled with a more detailed, natural sound

Microphonics has been a problem that has plagued designers since the beginning of recorded sound. Our circuit boards and components layouts are meticulously designed to eliminated all microphonic effects, and employ state-of-the-art discrete circuitry.

The CP-47.5 is fully remote controllable, you may remain seated in you favorite chair and change not only the volume and balance but also switch from one source to another. An optional phono stage, of exceptional quality, and which features both MM & MC capability, is also available.
