Gato AMP-150 High End Integrated Amplifier

An integrated amplifier of the highest aesthetic, technical and audio reproductive quality. Beautiful, simple and functional by design. As easy as childs play to operate. Resourceful enough to hold the most power-hungry speakers in a viselike grip, yet at the same time musical, respectful and authentic.

Teaching it to sing

Thousands of hours have passed while «voicing», a process where each and every component has been carefully selected and optimised to ensure that the AMP-150 does not leave any fingerprints on the music. The way the AMP-150 plays is therefore quite unusual; aurally, this is about the closest you can get to a straight wire with built-in amplification.

Pure Power!

With more than 250W RMS @ 4ohms available in each channel, the AMP-150 delivers more than enough voltage to avoid clipping in the high peaks, offering loads of headroom and musical freedom.

Features:

  • Balanced and unbalanced inputs
  • TwinFET technology output stage
  • High bandwidth power supply
  • Full metal remote control (RC-1)
  • Analogue multi display, clear and informative
  • Nonmagnetic enclosure
  • Pre-heat circuit
  • Direct function; enables use in home theater sytems
  • Designed, developed and build in Copenhagen, Denmark
