The CAP-101 is our entry level stereo integrated amplifier. It follows Classé design and build philosophy so it looks, feels and sounds like the High End product every Classé is. The CAP-101 has a power output capability of more than 100 watts per channel and comes with full function remote control at a bargain price point for High End from Classé. The CAP-101 represents a high value and it's built right here in North America. 

The CAP-101 has a contoured, slimline chassis. Inputs include: REG1, REG2, REG3, REG4, REG5 and BAL1. Outputs include TAPE, PREAMP and SPEAKER. Remote controls include: Power On/Off, Volume, Mute, Input Selection, Tape and Display . Front panel controls include: INPUT SELECTOR, VOLUME, TAPE, MUTE and POWER. Special Classé front panel is in Soft Shadow Silver with Anodized Black Fascia

As you can see from the above specifications the CAP-101 is a very substantial integrated, quite capable of driving the majority of speakers in its price range. If you have been considering the purchase of a mass market amplifier but you know you are sophisticated enough to be looking for an amplifier which has more sonic quality and better appearance than would be found in a mass produced unit, then please visit your Classé dealer for a listen. The CAP-101 will go well with any of our CD players, including the CDP-.3, as well as with any other source (except phono) you want to connect with, and it is quite capable of driving a wide range of High End speakers. If you require an integrated with phono capability you should consider our CAP-151 with our fine phono option installed.
