The Athene

The Athene is rated at a peak power of 2,000W into 8 ohms and 4,000W into 4 ohms. It is housed in our M4 chassis and has the same high-current output stage as the Apollo.

The Athene is designed for precise full range amplification, capable of sustained high power output. The output stage features 100 high-performance audio-grade power transistors with a peak current capacity of 720 amperes.

The Athene can drive any channel in a high-performance split system.
