New press announcement from Legacy. I used to run a pair of their Legacy IIIs which were great and I've enjoyed the Studio HDs I had in for review a couple of years back. Good people - this one looks very interesting and priced competitively.
LEGACY Audio Introduces Powerbloc2 Dual Mono Amplifier
(Springfield, IL) Legacy Audio introduces the Powerbloc² dual mono amplifier featuring 325 watts per channel x 2 @ 8 ohms and 650 watts per channel x 2 @ 4 ohms.
Audiophiles will appreciate the detail and resolution from the ultra-wide 1.5Hz to 70kHz bandwidth. Professionals will love the abundance of effortless power. Characterized by solid and taut low end with fully developed shimmer in the top extremes, Powerbloc² is one of the most versatile reference grade amplifiers today.
Featuring the latest high efficiency Class D ICEpower® design, the Powerbloc²features short circuit protection. Far less power is wasted both in use and at idle, and unit life is extended by the lack of heat buildup. With up to 30 amps of peak current available per channel, the cool running design can drive a wide range of speaker loads.
The Powerbloc² can be used in pairs with Legacy Audio's DSP based processors/crossovers, such as the Wavelaunch or Wavelet, to raise system performance to a new level.
The Powerbloc² is currently available for order and will begin shipping January 2016. For a full list of Legacy dealers & international distributors, please visit:http://legacyaudio.com/
