Powerful digital amplifier delivers audiophile-quality sound in any room

Built-in, powerful digital amplifier

Powers large or small speakers with 55W per channel.

Class-D amplifier

State of the art, great sounding amplifier is small, lightweight and very energy efficient.

Radiant cooling

Operates silently — all you hear is the music, as the amplifier is kept cool by the aluminum casing, not by a noisy fan.

Tone and volume controls adjustable for each room

Optimise sound performance for each room using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms.

Subwoofer output with automatic crossover

When adding a subwoofer, the CONNECT:AMP automatically adjusts the output to send the low frequencies to the subwoofer and the high frequencies to the speaker.
