This is quite a feather in our cap. In the wide world of consumer electronics, monoblock amplifiers must really stand out to make such a list. ...Bob Archer's review of this fabulous amplifier is in their December, 2014 issue.

Here's a link: http://www.cepro.com/photos/2014_the_comeback_of_the_custom_install_market_the _best_products_of_the_yea/11/K536"

Nifty!! And outside of Theta's internal use of the Prometheus, I got the first five consumer ones last January and just luv 'em. Clearly better than - my prior Theta Digital Citadel 1.5 monoblocks - which in itself is amazing!!!@@@
This is the 20k forum. Quit worrying about great multichannel amps. Get great monoblock amps. HA!

Off topic subject...but does anyone think Theta will include a USB input, for audio in a future upgrade?
I see a lot of new music streamer's, like the Auralic Aries that use USB out for DSD files....
that resolution can't be output through the digital out's....and was just wondering if anyone had
a thought on this?

There has been absolutely not even a hint of this from Theta Digital. Whatever secrets I may know about Theta Digital's future stuff does not include an asynchronous USB input for audio.

However, I am gonna make a bold prediction. The CBIV is so darn musical, even more so when coupled with a Gen VIII Series 3 DAC for front left and right channels. It so good that I no longer use the Gen VIII alone for stereo, I do everything thru the CBIV!!!@@@ No doubt Theta will have more stuff planned for the CBIV in the future as its been so successful. With new technology consolidating and "miniaturizing" computer components the CBIV now has plenty of extra room inside for new stuff. So I am gonna "boldly go where Man hasn't gone before", in Star Trek fashion, and predict that within 2-3 years, if not sooner, Theta Digital will have an asynchronous USB input for what by then will be the CBV! I have not one source telling me this. This is my prediction. Everything I asked for and predicted for some years is coming true for the CB SSP. Lets "see" if I turn out to score 100%. Theta are you watching???@@@

Meanwhile, I am using a Berkeley Audio USB to digital converter - the sound is phenomenal on 2 channel via the CBIV with Gen VIII Series 3 DAC!

Hey Guys

Hope all your Theta Casablancas are doing well

As you probably know Theta is doing very well with the CB4 upgrades and shipping them daily with extremely happy customer results.

The OS is solid and people are loving the sound of the new CB4..

As you read in the previous post from Steve B.. Theta just got recognized for their new Prometheus Mono Blocks which I have to tell you are not only blowing Steve Bruzonskys mind but mine as well.

I have a pair in our demo room set up with Joseph Audio Perspectives and I am telling you , you've never heard anything like this.. Its completely insane.. Clarity , Precision, Warmth , Excitement and more. If anyone is in the NJ area and wants to hear this Setup we are going to be doing some more demos in January.. The Prometheus Amps are Dave Reichs babies and he put years into the design. They use the Hypex Ncore 1200 modules but instead of doing the Power Supply digital like others , Dave got the best sound by using a Giant Torroid.. Something Dave Reich and Theta are very familiar with.

Bruzonsky has 5 of these puppies in his room and replaced the Citadels with them.. Yes rated less power than the Citadels they smoke the Citadels in performance in all departments..

Theta is showing at CES in a few weeks and whoever gets to go see them will get a real treat !.. Lots of new goodies and some things that are going to make you just realize that buying a Fully Upgradable Processor was well worth the investment.. After almost 20 years of upgrades, the CB4 is just the beginning of an entirely new machine. Morris Kessler has put insane amounts of money into CB4 and wait till you see what he has up his sleeve.. He sees that the road for CB4 is just starting and that with the huge user base of people that demand the best sound quality in the industry that he can continue to invest in CB4 and the customer base will stay on board.

There are lots of other new fantastic boxes on the market but none with an upgradable card based architecture which has stood the test of time like Casablanca.

More to follow soon !

Sounds like CES 2015 will be very interesting for the Theta Casablanca IV and perhaps other Theta goodies????
