If you’re looking for an affordable power amp with plenty of juice on tap, you should check out the new Fiera Amplifiers from Starke Sound. These amps use Starke’s proprietary 1-kilowatt SAPS switch-mode power supplies and NS600 Class-D amplifier modules to deliver a clean 130 watts RMS per channel into 8 ohms and double that into 4 ohms. The Fiera amplifiers are designed for the lowest noise and distortion at typical listening levels.
There are two models to choose from: the $1499 Fiera4, a 4-channel amp bridgeable to three channels to power the front of a home theater system, or two channels for a high-end music setup. Next, you have the $1999 Fiera8, a straight 8-channel amp for home theater applications. Both units look to be built with fantastic attention to detail, all the way down to the custom-made beryllium copper binding posts.
The Fiera4 is available now at starkesound.com, with the Fiera 8 coming in August.
