One of the most versatile and well sounding 4 channel amplifiers in the market
Historically DLS CC series amplifiers have by many considered to be the best sounding amplifiers you could get in its price class! So – when we decided to bring out the CCi generation we had a lot of heritage to honor. After a long development process together with Gordon Taylor we are very pleased to note that DLS has again made a breakthrough in terms of compact audio fidelity for your car.
We started out with a new precision tooling of the heatsink that gave room for more heat dissipation fins on the outside including updated optics with chamfered edges. But as always – it is the inside that counts – on the inside of the heatsink there is a vast area of small fins that collect the heat from air pushed through the PC board by the integrated fan and releasing it through thin slots in the side panels. Thanks to the optimized power supply section the new CCi series produce more power and less heat!
From a sonic perspective the new circuitry has been further refined with linear regulators now supplying the preamp circuitry and high bias drive circuitry combined with top quality Sanken output devices that are sonically superiors. The result is glimmering details combined with warm midrange and a class leading S/N ratio of over 110dBA!
For perfect system integration it includes the proven DLS High level converter with Auto start for serious upgrading of OEM radios and wide range input level handling. A useful function of the Hi Level input in CCi44 is that a low-level output to additional amplifiers can be sourced from the RCA input connectors.
