Also referred to as the A200X5, this home theater powerhouse provided 200-watts to each of 5-channels. It was the most powerful 5-channel amplifier ever made in the Acurus line.
Engineered for Both Music and Movies
Acurus amplifiers are engineered with the understanding that they will need to be exceptional with two-channel music reproduction as well as with home theater. We, therefore, created two, three, and five channel amplifiers to fulfill the power requirements of the various speakers in a system.
Symmetrical Channel Configuration
This second generation of Acurus product has evolved into high-end amplifiers of exceptional smoothness. This smoothness was not achieved at the expense of detail. The ability to retrieve detail found within the original source has actually been improved. Our new Symmetrical Channel Configuration reduces harshness and inter-channel anomalies allowing for the increased smoothness and detail.
Real Glass Epoxy Circuit Boards
Unlike many other amplifiers in the Acurus price range, all of our amplifiers employ glass epoxy circuit boards. Is glass epoxy really superior to the paper circuit boards found in the mass-produced product? Absolutely. That's why all medical and military equipment specifies glass epoxy.
Heavy Gauge Copper Wire Wound Toroidal Transformers
Instead of El or thin-gauge toroid transformers, all Acurus amplifiers have very heavy gauge copper wire toroidal transformers for continuous power into lower impedance, real world speaker loads. Some amplifiers, selling at over twice the price of Acurus, use only small transformers found in noisy car stereo power supplies in the name of efficiency.
Over 20% More Power
Although most people determine an amplifier's power by the 8 ohm impedance power rating, all better quality speakers have varying impedance. The second generation of Acurus amplifiers have increased their continuous power into the more difficult to drive lower impedances by over 20 percent. This increased drive and control improves the performance of higher quality loudspeakers.
Made in the USA
All Acurus amplifiers are made in the USA.
