1st Review of C•100S in The Absolute Sound
« on: 21 Aug 2019, 02:57 pm »
The first review of our new C•100S 100 watt per channel stereo amplifier is in the September issue of The Absolute Sound.

C•100S ($1495) held its own vs their reference, the Pass Labs 150.8 ($6750).

"if you want an amplifier that has "personality" you should look elsewhere. But if you need a harmonically neutral power amplifier that you can attach to a wide variety of speakers, the C•100S would be an excellent choice.
And priced at $1500, the C•100S ranks as a "best buy" in my world".

Is it available with XLR inputs?  And is it a natively balanced design?

Are the stated physical dimensions, under additional information, correct (18 x 12 x 8 inches) or are the physical dimensions stated under specifications as 8.5 x 2.75 x 10 inches right?

The design is balanced internally for low noise, but single-ended input only.

The smaller dimensions are the actual product size... the dimensions in the "additional information" are shipping carton size.
