The Classé' Audio CA-M400 offers ultimate audiophile monoblock performance, on par with the most expensive options from Krell, Mark Levinson and Halcro, at a fraction of the price.
The fit and finish of the Classé Audio CA-M400 is as good as you will find anywhere with any audiophile product. It is simply stunning and anyone who tells you that you are being too foo-foo about considering the way an amp looks can kiss your ass. The look of a statement amp like the Classé' CA-M400 matters.This is a serious audiophile amp.
While this is nitpicking, the Classé' Audio CA-M400 is so well balanced that no one thing really sticks out about it. With a Krell amp, I can say it has the best bass. With an Audio Research reference tube amp, I can talk about the magical highs. With the Classé' Audio CA-M400, the performance of the amp is so consistent that there is no one element that jumps out. You will have to decide if that is a plus or a minus before you make the investment.
