Sporting a hi-tech appearance that will be right at home in any equipment rack, the new Stanton power amplifiers present a clean, inviting presence. The amplifier's front panel includes a Power On/Off switch, 21-position detent level control knobs for channels 1 and 2 that make repeatable settings a breeze, and 6-segment, multi-color LED ladders for visual monitoring of signal status per channel.

At the heart of these new amplifiers resides an electronic design that delivers clean, reliable performance, protection circuitry guards against thermal overloads, short circuits, DC voltage, subsonic frequencies, and current overdriving. Additionally, these amps provide independent limiters for speaker protection, along with high-pass filters to eliminate extreme low end which can damage small speaker systems. Combined with a highly efficient, continuously variable tunnel cooling system designed to maintain low operating temperatures under extreme load conditions, the new A Series power amps provide pristine audio quality and dependable performance.

With the right combination of input and output connectors, the new A Series power amps integrate easily into most any audio environment. Rear panel input provisions include the balanced Combo (combined XLR and 1/4" TRS) connectors, while outputs are handled by 5-way binding post and Speakon connectors. Further, the rear panel is home to the High Pass Filter switch, Limiter switch, and a Mode select switch (for bridged/parallel/stereo operation).
