BasX A3 Three-Channel Power Amplifier
The BasX A3 is a three channel power amplifier. The BasX A3 combines classical audiophile amplifier architecture, based on a heavy-duty linear power supply, and a carefully designed high current short signal path Class A/B output stage, with advanced microprocessor-controlled monitoring and protection circuitry, to deliver superb sound quality at a truly reasonable price.
Power Output (ALL channels driven):
140 watts RMS per channel; 20 Hz – 20 kHz; THD < 0.1%; into 8 Ohms.
200 watts RMS per channel; 1 kHz; THD < 1%; into 4 Ohms.
Power Output (two channels driven):
150 watts RMS per channel; into 8 Ohms.
250 watts RMS per channel; into 4 Ohms.
Power Bandwidth (at rated power; 4 Ohm - 8 Ohm load): 20 Hz to 20 kHz (+ / – 0.02 dB)
Broad Band Frequency Response: 10 Hz to 80 kHz +0/-1.8 dB
THD + noise: < 0.02% (A-weighted); ref rated power
Signal to Noise Ratio (8 Ohm load):
