Onkyo's PA-MC5500 is a nine channel THX Ultra2 Plus certified amplifier that packs plenty of power.  Inside the monolithic chassis you'll find an analog power amplifier rated to 150 watts per channel at 8 ohms and up to 400 watts into 3 ohms.

Powering that amplifier is a huge power supply containing a toroidal transformer and a pair of 22,000 µF capacitors.  Onkyo even packed in custom output transistors arrange in a push-pull configuration to ensure instantaneous current capability.

To eliminate distortion, the MC5500 is equipped with a three stage inverted Darlington circuit and professional level inputs.  It's designed as the perfect companion for the PR-SC5508 preamplifier/processor, and includes nine balanced line-level XLR inputs for the optimal connection. You'll be able to pick up the PA-MC5500 for $1,699 when it launches this September.
