Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Bob Carver is one of the most recognizable names in audio and now in home theater. His Sunfire project has produced an impressive list of highly successful AV products ranging from Sunfire’s groundbreaking (and rumbling) True Subwoofer and their great AV preamp to a full line of two and five amplification. The Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature is the latest offering from Carver as a reference-grade five-channel amplifier, priced at $3,495. The Signature moniker is given to the top of the line Sunfire products. It represents more than just marketing lip service. Signature products are physically inspected and hand signed by Carver himself. Each Cinema Grand Signature is rated at a beefy 405 watts per channel times five channels. The power ratings go through the ceiling when impedance drops to four or two ohms. This amp has two sets of speaker outputs for each of its five channels. Voltage Output is the most dynamic of the ...

Krell KAV-1500 Multi-channel Amplifier
Introduction The KAV-1500 is Krell’s $8,500 powerhouse five-channel amplifier, which delivers 300 watts per channel into eight ohms (600 watts into four ohms). Housed in the standard-size chassis are two massive two kVA toroidal power supplies with 14 proprietary Krell transistors per channel to ensure the highest level of musical accuracy. The KAV-1500 provides both balanced and single-ended inputs for maximum system compatibility. The most unique feature of this amplifier is Multiple Amplifier Throughput (MAT), which sends the same musical signal to all amplifier channels using only one of the balanced or single-ended connections, thereby reducing installation complexity with multiple amplifier systems. Individual channels can be bridged as well. In fact, bridging up to four channels produces a whopping 1,100 watts. To make changes to the amplifier’s configuration, such as bridging channels or setting it for MAT, it is necessary to remove the top of the unit and use the supplied jumper cables to create new ...

Cinepro 3K6se Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction While many amplifier manufacturers continue to only think about stereo, Cinepro knows the future is multi-channel sound. The six-channel 3K6se amplifier was designed expressly for the demands of 5.1 digital audio sources--such as DVD and Laserdiscs encoded with Dolby Digital and DTS. Digitally encoded movies require amplification that can maintain a wide dynamic range without distortion; and whereas dialogue normally requires an average of 5-10 watts, key action scenes (such as the White House explosion in "Independence Day") peaked close to 750 watts for brief bursts in Cinepro's extensive tests. To accommodate this range of levels, the 3K6se is capable of generating a peak output of 1 kilowatt per channel (4 ohms). The inputs and outputs are divided into three two-channel groups (front LR, center/sub, rear LR). Each group can also be converted from two to one channel (bridged mono). In the multi-channel mode, the 3K6se is rated at 375 watts per channel into 8 ohms ...

Outlaw Audio Model 750 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction The Outlaw Audio Model 750 is the first product from a new and different audio company.

The power supplies for each channel are isolated and contain two secondary windings, 20,000 microfarads capacitance, six discrete output devices and large heatsinks, eliminating the need for a noisy fan. The front panel has a button for power and the Outlaw Audio logo. The rear panel has five sets of inputs of unbalanced inputs and five-way binding posts, a captive power cord and a 12-volt trigger input to automatically power up the unit.
