The Theta Dreadnaught II is a modular amplifier that can have either mono or stereo modules added to provide between two and 10 channels, as your audio system demands. The basic chassis, which is gorgeous, by the way, with its curved silver face and sexy industrial design, is $2,250. Each 225-watt channel module is $850 per board, with the 100-watts-per-channel stereo module costing $1,000 each. A stylish aluminum top is an additional $250. A loaded Dreadnaught II weights 98 pounds and is 17.5 inches wide by 8.5 inches tall and 23.5 inches deep.
The sound of the Theta Dreadnaught II is reminiscent of ATI amps, but with a little more refinement. This is no all-sizzle digital amp that delivers only on the spec sheet. The Theta Dreadnaught II is a manly amp, with class AB operation, giving your surround sound system low-end weight, along with openness on the high end that is voiced to match Theta Digital's very resolute front-end electronics.
