micro amp that's churning out 40W@8 per channel. It's on image #3. Still falls short of the REQUIRED 50W/ch for the Be-718's but the result in the overly large first floor / living room is satisfying to say the least. That makes it even more impressive for such a little thing to create a clean sound that's still somewhat dynamic. I bet, people would believe it if I tell them they're hooked to a small high end integrated amp. Very interesting product that allows for clean installation for let's say a desktop or office system but doesn't skimp on true performance.
What's the source? Is there a pre amp?
The product would make an interesting monoblock solution at $70 per channel. It's hard to get that low with even the cheapest pro amp I know of, but the pro amps would more than double it's power...I think.
It's not quite as compact as you might first think, because it needs an external power supply (which they do provide.) So that would make the AC wiring a bit painful, depending on what the AC adpater is like (is it a wall wart?)
That all being said, an interesting concept for sure.
