Proceed HPA2 and HPA 3 Dual/Triple Monaural Power Amplifiers
Introduction Sure bets are hard to find though you can always depend on Proceed (Madrigal) to produce a killer product. The HPA 2 (dual mono) and the HPA 3 (tri-mono) home theater amplifier combo is no exception. These 250 watts per channel (8-ohms) amps performed spectacularly on every source be it rock, jazz, new age or the most dynamic movie soundtracks. Cosmetically they match all other Proceed products such as the Proceed AVP digital processor and the PDMT DVD transport. A large silver Standby button is the only front panel adornment. The rear panel provides both single-ended and balanced inputs and a tiny toggle switch determines which type of input is active to prevent any unwanted pickup of stray noise from the unused connection. When switching from single-ended to balanced the signal level is adjusted for the 6dB variable between input types. High-quality, gold-plated binding posts allow the use of audiophile grade cables with spade ...

Sharp SM-SX100 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction A fact of life in the high-end world is that amplifiers are heavy, obtrusive square chassis with massive heat sinks. However, that is about to change with the release of Sharp’s SM-SX100 1-bit amplifier. The stylish silver chassis with colored accents looks more like an executive shelf component than the 100-watt 2 channel, $15,000 amplifier that delivers clean, unaltered sound, bringing digital technology to what was once a purely analog product. The SM-SX100 is rated with an amazing frequency response of 5 – 100 kHz. Okay, we mere humans can’t hear much above 18 kHz (if we’re lucky), but the extended range ensures a flat response throughout the audible range and a reproduction range commonly associated with analog signals. It is capable of driving a speaker with an 18-inch woofer, yielding devastating subsonic frequencies, while driving the tweeter and midrange effortlessly. Dynamic range is measured at 105 dB, though the theoretical dynamic range associated with ...

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. Outlaw Audio products can only be bought from the manufacturer, eliminating distributors, dealers and their associated mark-ups. This allows the Model 750 to sell for the competitive price of $1,099. With the Model 750, you get a lot for your money. The 750 provides 165 watts in each of its five channels. A 1.5kVA toroidal transformer feeds the individual channel power supplies. 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. The Sound The Model 750 did not ...

Proceed Amp 5 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Home theater is clearly the driving force behind the high end audio video market. However, very few music and film enthusiasts are willing to sacrifice pure music playback in order to enjoy the addictive sizzle of home theater. We want the best of both worlds. Enter the Proceed AMP 5. With Proceed being the little brother to the two-channel giant Mark Levinson, the AMP 5 shares many of the advantages and design cues found on the more pricey Levinson gear, while being nicely packaged for multi-channel use. The Proceed AMP 5 is a five-channel, single chassis THX-certified, power amplifier rated at 125 watts x 5 into 8 ohms and 250 watts x 5 into 4 ohms. Priced at $4995, the AMP 5 is the perfect partner for Proceed's AV preamp, the AVP, also priced at $4995. The Proceed AMP 5 accepts both balanced and unbalanced signals, changeable by the flip of a switch. ...

Anthem MCA 5 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction The MCA5 is the first five-channel amplifier from Anthem. It is part of their new MCA series and retails for $1,399. Unlike the majority of products in the Sonic Frontiers and Anthem lines, the MCA series is solid state. The MCA series of multi-channel amplifiers offers 200 watts per channel in two-, three- and five-channel configurations. The description below applies to all three amplifiers in the series unless otherwise noted. The back panel contains single-ended and balanced inputs for each channel, an iec standard power cord socket and a DC relay trigger socket and switch to control the auto-on circuitry. This switch lets you choose from three different modes, manual on, trigger and auto on. In the auto on mode, the amplifier switches itself on after sensing an input signal. The sleek and deep chassis is well finished and is a bit unusual as you can see through the top and out the bottom ...
