Theater Amplifiers

Dependable power is a key component in a performance home theater.  The power needs to be clean, clear, and reliable. AudioControl amplifiers run cool, delivering authoritative power and pristine sonic performances while providing bulletproof reliability to last, quite literally, a lifetime.

AudioControl amplifiers are built on a unique Class H topology, which provides authoritative power and pristine sonics without generating the excess heat inherent to other designs.  Class H topology monitors the input levels, maximizing power efficiency through the use of multiple voltage rails.  This reduces the amount of power converted into useless heat; heat that puts excess strain on an amplifier.

All AudioControl amplifiers are designed and assembled at our factories in the Pacific Northwest offering an unsurpassed level of reliability. Performance and durability are characteristics that customers have come to expect from AudioControl theater amplifiers.
