What is it?
The PA240 is a high-performance power amplifier that delivers 2 channels of efficient Class G amplification. With an impressive 380W per channel, the PA240 is designed to offer the greatest flexibility and power without compromising on control.
Featuring the best-in-class components including a toroidal based power supply, acoustically damped chassis, paralleled transistor output stages and exceptionally low levels of distortion, the PA240 masters the reproduction of music with all its originality and detail for an unmatched level of sound quality and clarity.
How does it work?
If you’re using power-hungry speakers in your two-channel sound system, the Arcam PA240 can feed them the watts they need. It gives you plenty of volume for music listening, and it excels at controlling the stop-start motion of your speakers’ drivers. That precise control enhances accuracy, deepens bass, and helps create a realistic soundstage.
The PA240 can also be used to drive a pair of speakers in a surround sound system. The Arcam AV860, for example, offers balanced and unbalanced front left (FL) and front right (FR) outputs that can be connected to inputs on the PA240.
The engineers who designed the PA240 wanted it to provide the right amount of power at the right time, so your music always sounds exactly as it should. That’s why they chose a Class G amplifier design, which uses Class A circuitry for low-level signals, then kicks in a higher-voltage power supply for more demanding dynamic peaks. And it does it without adding any crossover distortion or noise.
The PA240 offers unbalanced RCA and balanced XLR inputs for connecting to a preamp, plus one pair of unbalanced passive outputs. An RS232 input allows third-party remote control, and an Ethernet port lets you connect to the internet and works with home automation. There’s 12-volt trigger input and output for remote turn-on and a USB Type-A port for firmware updates.
