ATI was showing their AT6000 multi-channel amplifier. This amplifier is designed by Morris Kessler and is part of the ATI signature series. The AT6000 is a fully balanced design which makes use of only a single input stage with dualdifferential output stages. It uses current feedback for increased amplifier speed and makes use of Thermaltrak output transistors for real-time bias optimization. It retails for $3,995 for a two-channel version and up to $7,995 for a sevenchannel model.
Morris Kessler knows his way around an amplifier. His name may be a little less well known to audiophiles than Dan D'Agostino, Nelson Pass, and John Curl, but he has been quietly designing great amplifiers for many companies at least as long as any of them--and longer than some. His current company is ATI, well known for producing solid-performing, high-value audiophile amps. This is his signature design, the first to feature his name on the front panel. Available from 2-channels at $4000 and $8000 for 7 channels, it sports 300 W continuous into 8 ohms and, in 7-channel form, weighs in at 143 lbs! It should be available in January.
