Classe | Pre-Amplifier – CP-800

Awarded “Product of the Year” in the Preamplifier category by The Absolute Sound

The Classe Pre-Amplifier CP-800/Stereo Preamp Processor combines the functionality of a conventional analog preamplifier with that of a multi-input DAC having digital processing features. The single-box approach eliminates unnecessary chassis, circuitry and cables, which reduces cost, shortens the signal path and preserves signal quality. The CP-800’s processing capabilities allow performance-enhancing features like parametric EQ, tone control and bass management to be accomplished in the digital domain, preserving the resolution of signals in a way not possible with conventional analog-based systems. The Classe Pre-Amplifier CP-800 was updated in late 2013 to include 192 kHz capability for USB as well as Ethernet connectivity for IP control and streaming DLNA sources up to 192 kHz from a network. Apple’s AirPlay is also supported. A Classé App, available free of charge from the Apple App store allows control of the CP-800 from an iOS device like an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. This new preamp/processor architecture is supported by numerous proprietary Classé technologies. The highest performance is achieved via the CP-800’s USB inputs. Asynchronous techniques are used for both computer-based sources (rear panel USB Device connector) and Apple® portable devices (front panel USB Host connector). A technique we call Single-Clock-Substrate extends the advantages of our Asynchronous USB solution to all digital sources, lowering noise and reducing digital jitter to the lowest possible levels. The result is a breathtakingly direct and immediate sound—a crystal clear view into the soundstage—as if you were in the recording studio with your amplifiers plugged into the mixing board. An entirely new design of the Classe Pre-Amplifier CP-800 employs Zero Volt Switching in a Switch Mode Power Supply with Power Factor Correction to deliver performance and value on a scale never before offered in a high-end pre-amplifier.
