METIS 7

Integrated Amplifier

THE METIS 7 IS AN ENTRY LINE INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER. ITS TELOS AMPLIFICATION TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES OUTSTANDING DYNAMICS AND EXERTS A STRONG CONTROL OVER THE DRIVERS FOR AN EXTREMELY NEAT AND DETAILED SOUND.

IT IS THE IDEAL COMPANION OF A SIMPLE STEREO SYSTEM AND PROVIDES THE NECESSARY POWER TO DRIVE ANY SPEAKER. ITS SIZE IS COMPACT, AND THE FRONT PANEL INCLUDES A VOLUME CONTROL AND AN INPUT SELECTOR SWITCH, THE IR RECEIVER FOR THE REMOTE CONTROL, AS WELL AS LED INDICATORS FOR POWER AND DIGITAL LOCK.
