Focal FPS 2160 2-Channel Class AB Symmetric Amplifier
Focal is renowned for its high-performance products, and the company's amplifiers are no different. The FPS 2160 puts out 105 watts RMS per channel at 4 ohms, 180 watts RMS per channel at 2 ohms, and 360 watts RMS bridged at 4 ohms. While the output is exceeded on paper by numerous competitors, the FPS 2160 easily outperforms them all in the real world. The thermostat-controlled cooling fan and heavy heatsink ensure cool operation, and an optional capacitor module can improve power efficiency. The FPS 2160 features algorithms that can clip signals on demand to reduce distortion, and signal paths have been designed specifically to maintain sound fidelity and minimize external interference. All of this attention to detail comes at a price, however - it's definitely expensive, and will appeal to a limited group of enthusiasts.
