Audio Research GS150 Galileo Series Power Amplifier
Share this product
An amplifier is the workhorse of any system – it is responsible for receiving small signals from a preamplifier or source component, and developing them into larger currents to control a loudspeaker. To that end, the GS150 has been designed to seamlessly integrate into any system and steadfastly perform its task. Challenging source material and difficult speaker loads are met with control and finesse to present a musical landscape of breathtaking proportions.
Three meters across the front panel provide a window into the operation of the amplifier and give the amplifier a striking façade. The selection of premium parts internally is reflected in the beautiful metalwork of the chassis and exquisite finishes. The circuit is design features the new KT150 power output tubes for 150 watts of effortless power delivery. A reflection of the past yet clearly a guiding light into the future of music reproduction, the GS150 is poised to deliver years of musical enjoyment.
155 watts per channel continuous from20Hz to 20kHz. 1kHz total harmonic distortion typically 0.6% at 155 watts, below 0.03% at 1 watt.Approximate actual power available at ‘clipping’ 160 watts (1kHz). (Note that actual power output is dependent upon both line voltage and ‘condition’ i. e.: if power line has high distortion, maximum power will be affected adversely, although from a listening standpoint this is not very critical.)
(-3dB points) 5Hz to 80kHz.
(-3dB points at 1 watt) 0.5Hz to 120 kHz.
2.0V RMS BAL for rated output. (24 dB Bal gain into 8 ohms.)
300K ohms Balanced.
Non-inverting. Balanced input pin 2+ (IEC-268).
8 ohms, 4 ohms.
