There will be no extra charges. For years, audiophiles have been asking for an amplifier rivaling the Cinénova Grande in audio excellence, but positioned in the 300-watt class. The Cinénova name represents the pinnacle of amplification regardless of price.
Traditionally, listeners assume that a reduction in power and cost will influence the quality of sound. With a constant demand for this amplifier, Earthquake's chief engineer Joseph Sahyoun descended into the Earthquake research laboratories determined to crack the code to the universe and design an amplifier with no compromise in sound quality and competitively priced. Since its inception, the Cinénova design concept has been a tempered blend of traditional high-end virtues combined with innovative and novel circuitry design.Produced using in-house proprietary manufacturing techniques, this tradition lives on in the new Cinénova 7300 with a completely monaural design and enhanced class AB operation. The result is industry leading efficiency making the Cinénova 7300 a true green amplifier. Several new technologies had to be created during the intense development process in order to miniaturize the Cinénova Grande reference design. Contrary to logical thinking you cannot scale down an amplifier and expect it to perform the same just at a lower power level. Since real world customers don't play gentle on small, easy driven loudspeakers, high performance amplifiers have to be built and tested to the most rigorous standards.
When lesser amplifiers are tested on low impedance, highly reactive speakers, they quickly lose control of the speaker cone. This results in muddy and distorted sound. Earthquake engineers put prototype after prototype through rigorous and exhaustive testing. The conclusion was that even at 300 watts, the industry standard of 2 to 4 output transistors per channel simply was not sufficient to retain the taunt, punchy, and distinctive woofer control that the Cinénova name has become synonymous with. The Cinénova 7300 employs 8 massive output transistors per channel ensuring that even the most demanding speakers are held in an iron grip and any soundtrack is reproduced with dynamic precision and articulation.
During the research process for the Cinénova 7300, three core technologies were developed to optimize the amplifier and elevate its performance above its class. Monaural Design: Completely separate output blocks.RCA Input: Accepts low-level signal from any source such as a processor or receiver (0.4 VAC - 6 VAC). Input Selector: To maintain signal integrity Cinénova 7300 provides you with an "Input Selector Switch" giving you (installer) the option to select between RCA or XLR inputs. Fully Balanced XLR Inputs: We recommend the use of fully balanced XLR inputs in cases when the distance between the Cinénova and the audio source is excessive and susceptible to noise interference. Input Sensitivity: Input selector gain set is based on your processor output voltage. Gold Plated Speaker Binding Posts: We recommend that you use a high quality wire constructed of fine multi-strand copper 10 or 12 gauge. 12VDC Trigger: Detects an incoming 12VDC signal and will automatically power on the amplifier.
Ground Wire Binding Post: Grounds the amplifier to your AV receiver/processor. Number of Channels: 7 channels.(8-Ohm load) Rated: 180 WRMS. (4-Ohm load) Rated: 300 WRMS. (2-Ohm load) Rated: 550 WRMS.
