Classé Audio Unveils New Delta Preamplifier

X

Classé Audio, who have successfully competed against rivals Krell, Mark Levinson, and Spectral, has revealed its new Classé Delta PRE Mk II Preamplifier, which focuses on streaming and high-resolution digital audio.

This device introduces a new upgraded digital front-end to minimise distortion. It’s compatible with a range of high-resolution digital audio formats and from multiple different digital sources, physically connected and streamed.

This is also the first Classé preamplifier to incorporate the HEOS streaming and multiroom platform, which provides the ability to stream music from Amazon Music, TIDAL, Deezer, Pandora and more. Also supported is Airplay 2 and Spotify.

Additionally, the device is Roon Ready and provides DLNA connectivity, which gives flexibility when streaming from a NAS drive, even when the front panel USB-A and back panel USB-B ports are used to connect local music sources.

All popular audiophile music formats are supported including WAV, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, DSD, and MQA.
