Avantone CLA-200 Stereo Studio Power Amplifier

Built to exactly match the Avantone CLA-10 studio monitors, this fanless, high-output power amplifier is ideal for driving a pair of passive studio speakers.
The Avantone Pro CLA-200 Studio Reference Amplifier is a classically designed Class A/B amplifier. Avantone took particular care to create an amplifier in the traditional studio style, with generous VU meters, high quality Japanese components and a serious toroidal transformer linear power supply. In a standard 2U rack mount chassis, this amplifier can generate over 200 watts per channel into an 8 ohm load, making it perfect for medium to large speakers in a studio environment. The CLA200 is convection cooled -- no fan noise, so it can be used in the same room as the monitors.


Take a look inside Chris Lord-Alge's studio in our exclusive interview:


The CLA-200 Studio Reference Amplifier is designed to be used in a studio environment requiring high power output with no fan noise. Under testing, it delivers a powerful 208 watts into 8 ohms and can run at one-third power without thermal fault.

The CLA-200 was designed to be paired with the CLA-10 studio monitors, but it can be used with just about any demanding speaker load. Very low distortion, steady performance under harsh conditions, and an open and transparent sound make this an obvious choice for discerning studios.

The Avantone Pro CLA-200 Studio Reference Amplifier is a dynamic, high output, high resolution, full-range system built the old school way. Avantone included no-compromise components in a 2U convection cooled chassis to complement the CLA-10 Studio Reference Monitors. Of course, it can be used read more with any passive studio monitor requiring serious dynamic range.
