In Stereo or Mono, ELAC Alchemy DPA-2 Provides Massive Dynamics and Drive: 325Wpc Power Amplifier Features Pure Analog Input Stage, Cool-Running Efficiency, and Stellar Connectivity

You no longer need a big amplifier to get a big sound. Designed from the ground-up by Audio Alchemy founder Peter Madnick and the accomplished engineers at ELAC, the highly efficient DPA-2 stereo/mono power amplifier delivers the kind of outstanding dynamics, dimensionality, and depth that make you feel you're at a live musical event. Enormously powerful – 325Wpc into four ohms in stereo with both channels driven, 625Wpc into eight ohms in mono mode – DPA-2 marries the musicality of Class A amps with the thrust, dynamics, and efficiency of state-of-the-art Class D models.

Measuring just 2 x 17.5 x 15 inches (HWD) and weighing only 14 pounds, the aesthetically clean DPA-2 runs incredibly cool and has selectable high/low gain to match any preamplifier. It will drive even large tower loudspeakers without exuding much effort, all the while fitting it tight spaces and working in poorly ventilated areas. DPA-2 specializes in rhythmic drive, wide soundstaging, and authoritative bottom-end sonics. You'll experience your favorite tunes with the kind of definition and articulation every audiophile desires. Full-bodied tones, impactful punch, delicate nuances, and fast transients will go from having been a dream and become a reality. DPA-2 offers performance that belies its price and takes no engineering shortcuts.

Fully balanced input to output, this extreme-value masterwork contains a pure analog, fully discrete FET input stage, input gain, and an accompanying liner power supply with toroidal transformer that work in harmony with a closed-loop Class D PWM output stage with switching power supply deliver stand-up-and-take-notice detail and transparency. Switchable gain and mute settings, balanced and single-ended inputs, and a clear front-panel LCD with power-display meter complement an overachieving component that touts a less-than .01% THD rating and includes a one-year manufacturer's warranty. Music Direct's 100% Satisfaction Guarantee does the rest.
