SAE Bows 8-Channel Monster Amp

The folks at SAE often find their products used in 8- to 15-channel installations, so the SAE 8300 multichannel amp offers 8x300 watts into 8 ohms (and lots more into lower impedances).

Last year's prototype is now in production and shipping at $17,995. Its stereo sibling, the 2HP, figured in one of the show's most sensational demos along with CAT speakers and dual subs. The system delivered the speediest kick drum we've heard coming out of a speaker and its dynamic assurance was exceptional.
