Audio Research Reference 160S Power Amplifier (Stereo)
140 watts continuous from 20Hz to 20kHz. 1kHz total harmonic distortion typically 1% at 140 watts, below 0.04% at 1 watt. (Note that actual power output is dependent upon both line voltage and “condition” i.e.: if power line has high distortion, maximum power will be affected adversely, although from a listening standpoint this is not critical).
(-3dB Points) 5Hz to 70kHz.
(-3dB points at 1 watt) 0.5Hz to 110kHz.
2.4V RMS Balanced for rated output. (25.5 dB gain into 8 ohms).
300k ohms Balanced; 100k ohms Single-ended.
Non-inverting. Balanced input pin 2+ (IEC-268).
16 ohms, 8 ohms, 4 ohms.
Approximately 0.6dB 16 OHM LOAD TO OPEN CIRCUIT (Damping factor approximately 14).
