Classé will be shipping the new Delta range in 2017, with amplifier and preamplifiers coming to market first. The Delta Monos that we demonstrated at CEDIA sounded spectacular, and are largely a finished design. The Delta Pre (CP-800) replacement has not yet been finished, and the unit we showed at CEDIA was a CP-800 in the new casework.

One on top looks like guy inside is getting ready to close the blinds so everyone stops looking in at him. He's having a hard time concentrating.

Any chance the CP-800 will be upgradeable?

Hi ylee,

The CP-800 will not be upgradeable to the new Delta Pre. The power supplies, analog circuitry, DAC and DSP are completely different.

That's a bummer, but I understand you have to march forward. Looking forward to auditioning the update next year.

Anyone has specs on these yet? Are these Class A/B amplifiers?

I just hope Classe doesn't jump on the Class-D amplification bandwagon for their Delta Series....

Thanks, Kal.

I was about to pull the trigger on a pair of the new Levinson No 536 mono blocks. I guess I'll wait for these to be available and take a listen

I wonder if Classe managed to lower the noise floor and THD for these new units compared to their previous delta offerings, if they have then these new amps would be setting a benchmark for measured performance, but the proof will be in the listening
