“Au­dio­phile stereo am­pli­fi­ca­tion with the ad­di­tion of HDMI and net­work­ing. A trans­for­ma­tive prod­uct.”

If Canada’s Classé is now a com­pany for which its new owner has in­di­cated that no fu­ture de­vel­op­ment is ex­pected, well, we’re happy to recog­nise this stu­pen­dous HDMI-equipped stereo am­pli­fier as proof of the qual­ity for which the mar­que, long a sis­ter brand to B&W, has been widely lauded for de­liv­er­ing. The $7500 Sigma 2200i not only ad­dresses the need for to­day’s lounges to have HDMI in­puts as well as ana­logue and dig­i­tal stereo ones, it im­ple­ments a re­mark­able all-dig­i­tal sig­nal path right through to its au­dio­phile-level Class-D am­pli­fi­ca­tion (the ana­logue in­puts are digi­tised), and the sound from that 2 × 200W am­pli­fi­ca­tion will blow the sneer from the face of any­one still doubt­ing the qual­ity avail­able from Class D. It net­works, it has Air­Play, you can plug your iPhone into the front. Its in­puts are soft­ware con­fig­urable, and it’s ca­pa­ble of trans­form­ing a TV-based lounge sys­tem into some­thing truly spe­cial. It sad­dens us to say ‘get it while you can’, but that now seems the sit­u­a­tion. Info: www.classeau­dio.com
