High-end Canadian audio outfit Classé has unveiled a trio of new Delta Series models, comprising the Delta Pre stereo preamp/DAC with built-in phono stage, and mono and stereo power amps.

Due to go into production at Sound United’s Shirakawa Audio Works factory in Japan this summer, the Delta Mono 300W amplifier features 35W of class A power and a newly developed ICTunnel active cooling system, while the Delta Stereo, a 250W x 2 amplifier boasts 12.5W per channel of class A power.

The units were demo’d at the recent Munich High End show, with FinkTeam WM-4 speakers and using computer files and reel-to-reel tapes as sources.

The Delta Pre and Delta Mono will both retail for £11,000, while the Delta Stereo will sell for £12,500. The series will be available late 2019.
“I am so excited to be conducting demonstrations at the High End Show with these amazing new products,” enthused Classé director Dave Nauber. “We really raised the bar in every way, introducing new circuit topologies and upgrading the parts standard across the board, all for better performance. We even updated the appearance and I think Classé fans will be delighted at how far we’ve come.”

The Montréal-based company was acquired a year ago by Sound United, from Bowers & Wilkins.
