Thumbs up Classé audio cav-150 multi-channel power amplifier

Location: Fall River, Wisconsin 53932
Price: $1000 FIRM
Research and add your own shipping costs. CONUS only

MSRP $3600

W/ CPI inflation factored in would be $5,471.62 today.

This Class AB amplifier is designed with a very high bias offset. That provides appoximetly 25% of rated power (900W) to run in Class A before it switches to Class B. So you are getting about 37.5W/channel and 75W/channel bridged Class A power. Don't believe me? Look at the specs. The idle power is 225W. That is how Class A is designed. That is why some have described Classé as having a "Tube like sound".

I think this is perfect for someone who appreciates the quality that Krell, Mark Levinson, Bryston can bring, and who are also not about to pay those prices. Classe brings alot of performance at a more reasonable price point. Classe has been favorably compared to Theta. May slot in just ahead of Aragon. Ahead of Parasound too. Definitely ahead of Emotiva, Outlaw, Monolith, Integra, Denon, Marantz

Actively selling again

Going to concentrate on the sale of this amp. I will pack it myself like it is going to war. I can deliver this myself if required for 50 cents per mile from 53932. First 100 miles free.
