Avantone Announce CLA200 Power Amp

Avantone CLA10 Passive Studio MonitorEarlier this year Avantone Pro announced a revamped homage on the classic NS10M passive studio monitor design, the CLA10 - built in partnership with engineer and producer Chris Lord Alge. At lightning speed, New York based manufacturer Avantone Pro has now announced a follow up and a much lauded addition to the new CLA range of products.

Meet the CLA200

Avantone’s latest introduction is a full-range, high-output power amplifier designed for use with the CLA10 passive monitors - or with any other studio speaker model requiring the same level of clean, raw power.

The CLA200 has been designed and built with a specific idiom in mind. Avantone’s goal was to create a high-output, high resolution amplifier, as dynamic as possible and (in true CLA and NS10 fashion) built the ‘old school’ way. Boasting 200w per side at 8 ohms, the CLA200 is a Class A/B amp featuring high headroom, low distortion and wide-view VU meters for easy monitoring.

Under the hood

Avantone have handpicked high-quality Japanese components along with a highly-reliable toroidal transformer linear power supply. The chassis itself is 19” rack-mountable across 2U and is fully convection cooled, avoiding any fan noise and making it perfect for use directly within any studio rack.
