It’s the first amp with just about all its controls fully adjustable and viewable on a smartphone using an app.

The 5-channel amp uses Bluetooth to communicate with a phone.  It is missing many of the mechanical knobs for adjusting settings such as level, bass boost or crossover. These are handled on the phone’s touch screen, which also lets you view the amplifier’s power supply voltage and operating temperature..

The amp itself delivers 600 watts RMS total.  It has two fully unregulated power supplies and 5 discrete channels of audio circuitry.  Its housing includes 7 g/mm of heat sink mass, compared to the usual 5 g/mm, said the company

Shipping and pricing information will be announced.
