The new amplifier, named Prometheus, is rated at 250 watts RMS full-band into 8 ohms, 500 watts RMS full-band into 4 ohms and 1,000 watts RMS full-band into 2 ohms all with less than 0.01% THD. Signal-to-noise ratio exceeds 128 dB, frequency response is +0, -.5 dB from 20 Hz to 20 kHz at any impedance and damping factor exceeds 2,500 from 0 Hz to 20 kHz.
Prometheus is Theta's first class D amplifier. According to Jeff Hipps, Theta Digital's SR VP for Sales and Marketing, "Theta's motto has always been, 'Digital Done Right'. Our first CD players
forced discerning listeners to revise their opinions about CD playback. I predict Prometheus will have the same effect on amplification."
Priced at $6,000 each or $12,000 per pair, Prometheus will be available in titanium or ebony color in April, 2012.
