At a whopping 850 watts, the Audio by Van Alstine DVA 850 will easily handle your most extreme listening demands. Manufactured in Minnesota, USA, and sold direct, the DVA 850 offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, and a 3-year warranty.
Frank Van Alstine has been designing and manufacturing audiophile-grade systems for over forty years, and the DVA 850 represents his greatest work to date. While other companies focus heavily on the “non-essentials” of high fidelity sound reproduction (expensive cases, lights, remotes, etc), Audio by Van Alstine chooses to create great sounding equipment without the high prices associated with the bells and whistles. And by selling direct, this also allows them to keep their prices in check.
The DVA 850 Mono Block amplifier is designed to produce Van Alstine’s highest level of audio reproduction, and to provide a high powered platform that won’t get stressed under extreme loads. The reason for such high power is not just to play loud for those of us who like to knock pictures off of walls during our listening sessions, but to provide immediate power when needed by wide dynamic swings, without clipping or distortion.
And to offer flexibility to go with the high power rating, the Audio by Van Alstine DVA 850 Mono Block Amplifiers provide switchable XLR and standard RCA jacks, double speaker jacks for bi-wiring, and an IEC power cord.
The DVA 850 Mono Blocks sell for $3,699 each, and are hand-built to order.
