From Theta Digital
Theta Digital has introduced the Dreadnaught IV modular power amplifier. Designed to accommodate up to eight channels of amplification, the Dreadnaught IV has a built-in power supply using dual power cords, power switches and toroidal transformers plus four slots designed to receive proprietary Theta Digital amplifier modules.
There are three modules available for the Dreadnaught IV. All are based on the Bruno Putzeys N-Core Class D amplifier circuitry. The stereo amplifier module is rated at 225W RMS per channel at eight ohms and 400W at four ohms with no more than 0.10 percent THD from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. One of the two single-channel modules has identical performance. The other bridges the two modules to deliver over 400W RMS at eight ohms with over 600W RMS at four ohms.
Pricing for popular configurations: MSRP for 225W x 7 is $9,995; 400W x 3 plus 225W x 2 is $10,695, 400W x 2 is $7,445.
The Dreadnaught IV is available in platinum or black, in a standard or rack-mount chassis with either 117V or 230V power supplies and will be available in Q2, 2015.
