Class� was founded in 1980 in Montreal, Canada. Since then it has remained one of the most respected brands of ultra high-end audio and home theater source, preamplification, and amplification components in the world.
Class�'s industrial design is second to none thanks to the resources allowed to them from parent company, Equity Audio (B&W and Rotel). Class� has a full line of audiophile and home theater electronics and competes favorably with the likes of Anthem, Krell, Meridian, Mark Levinson, Lexicon, and many others.
Class� distribution was completely revamped by Dave Nauber (of Mark Levinson and Harman fame) and now has strikes a solid balance between audiophile specialty dealers and custom installers. Many critics say that no electronics line looks better installed in a custom CEDIA-style rack than Class�'s.
Class� electronics are also used as a reference product (along with B&W speakers) at the famed Abbey Road Studios.
