Theta Digital's new Dreadnaught D amplifier features a modular design that allows you to choose from three different modules to tailor an amplifier that suits your needs, up to eight channels. All of the modules are based on Hypex N-Core Class D amplifier circuitry.
From Theta Digital
Theta Digital has begun shipping the new Dreadnaught D modular main amplifier. Designed to accommodate up to eight channels of amplification, the Dreadnaught D 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 D. All are based on the Hypex 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 0.05 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 500W RMS at eight ohms with over 800 W 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. Stereo amplifiers are available with 225W x 2 at $6,149.95 and 500W x 2 at $7,445.00.
According to Jeff Hipps, Theta Digital's Sr. VP for Sales and Marketing, "Prometheus, our first Class D amplifier, was just named one of the '12 Best Products of 2014' by CE Pro magazine and was given a Class "A" rating by Stereophile magazine. The Dreadnaught D is the same game-changing technology in a very flexible package. Prepare to be stunned by the sound."
The Dreadnaught D is available in platinum or black, in standard or rack-mount chassis with either 117V or 230V power supplies. The Dreadnaught is available now.
