What else to know about the CA-300?The sound stage is a little wider and instruments or people are more perfectly placed within this window. Voices are more real and three dimensional. The Bass is tighter, extreemly detailed and extended. The highs are the trade off here. I am used to rolled off highs and the difference is dramatic. I feel like there's more space around the voices or instruments. This also reveals the weekness in todays recorded records and cd's. I enjoy classical, jazz and some modern pop and rock, no complaints this amp delivers the goods. The Classe CA 300 has been in my system for one week, I'm looking forward to the next 3 or 4 months before I come back and write another review and see whats changed in my opinion.
Brief History of Classe
“There has to be something better.” - Mike Viglas, 1979. Classé was founded. Their first amplifier, the DR-2, was introduced in 1980. It was a 25W stereo amplifier operating in class A, which inspired the name of the new company. Other models followed and Classé quickly earned a reputation for both reliability and its open, natural, authoritative sound.
