Essence DPA-440 Class D Amplifier

Essence just released the DPA-440 Class D Digital Audio Power Amplifier, which is being billed as the killer amp for audiophiles. This $1300 amplifier uses the latest Class D topology to provide a highly efficient and nearly ideal amplifier with distortion below measurement, ultra-high damping factor, and unconditional stability with any speaker.

By using the latest generation parts and thinking, the DPA-440 offers a minimum of 220W per channel @ 4 Ohms (Essence Electrostats are 4 ohm) with plenty reserves of dynamic power at lower impedances. The DPA-440 is capable of up to 400 watts dynamic power per channel @ 2 ohms. It can effortlessly power any loudspeaker to live performance levels with amazing efficiency and low power consumption.

The DPA-440 features both Balanced XLR and Single-Ended RCA outputs, deluxe WBT Insulated 5-way binding posts, user adjustable gain controls,and is silent in operation because there’s no fan. Its compact size saves on material costs, reflected in the MSRP.
