Powerful digital amplifier delivers audiophile-quality sound in any room
Built-in, powerful digital amplifier
Powers large or small speakers with 55W per channel.
State of the art, great sounding amplifier is small, lightweight and very energy efficient.
Operates silently — all you hear is the music, as the amplifier is kept cool by the aluminum casing, not by a noisy fan.
Tone and volume controls adjustable for each room.
Optimize sound performance for each room using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms.
