In 2001 The B&W Group purchased Classé. Though their reputation of high quality products was already strong standing – the financial, distribution, and organizational resources The B&W Group brought to the table enabled the company to reach heights other companies only dream of. The Delta CP-800 was one of the most well received preamplifier that brought an integrated DAC well beyond what most out there were able to achieve.
Matching the brilliance of the CP-800, Classé used all their strengths and resources to create some of the finest power amplifiers they ever produced; the Delta CA-M600, CA-M300, CA-2300, and the CA-5300. The US magazine, Stereophile, has had the CP-800 and CA-M600 (mono amplifier) on their Recommended Components list as Class A rated products for over four years.
In more recent times Classé’s Sigma range has proven that home cinema amplification can be affordable and just as good in two-channel as it is in multi-channel playback.
When Classé put out a new product, a momentary pause should take place, because thousands of hours of research and testing has gone into and it sure to be amazing.
