Power Amplifiers From Arcam - The Audiophile Man
Arcam has announced a trio of new power amplifiers to its HDA range: the PA240, PA410 and PA720 The three power amplifiers here combine a mixture of AB and Class G amplification. The PA410 is the sole Class AB design here, delivering four channels, rated at 70W each. It includes a toroidal-based power supply and, “…an acoustically damped chassis, and paralleled transistor output stages,” said the company. The PA240 and PA720 are both Class G in amplification, implementing multiple supplies rather than just a single supply. The idea, said the company, is to run the amplifier with, “…less wasted heat energy.” The PA240 is a two-channel machine, enabling 2 x 380W Class G amplification or 1 x 790W Class G bridged mode. The PA720 stores seven channels of Class G, available as 7 x 140W. Both the PA240 and PA720 come equipped with balanced XLR inputs and all of the new power amps enable Ethernet and RS232 control. Prices are: PA410 – £1,299 PA240 – £1,999 PA720 – £2,499 Learn more about Arcam, click www.arcam.co.uk [Don’t forget to check out my Facebook Group, The Audiophile Man: Hi-Fi & Music here: www.facebook.com/groups/theaudiophileman for exclusive postings, exclusive editorial and more!] Subscribe to my weekly …
