Introduction

Congratulations on your purchase of your new Jamo Multi-Purpose Amplifier (MPA-201). It is backed by state-of-the-art engineering and manufacturing techniques to bring you the best quality craftsmanship and reliable performance.

The MPA-201 is specifically designed for home theatre applications.Because of its ample power andtwo-channelcapacity(stereo),itcanfitintovirtuallyanysurroundapplication.Narrowwidth chassis is designed for convenient shelf or system rack mounting in the space of the one stereo component.

It allows you to use one amplifier as left and right stereo front speakers,second amplifier use as left and right rear (surround) speakers and third amplifier use for centre channel.

Bridgemodecapabilityallowstheuseofthetwochannelsconnectedtogethertoformonehigh power amplifier channel,providing 200 watts into 8 Ohm.

The MPA-201 is also a subwoofer amplifier with adjustable electronic crossover.With switch in OFF position it becomes full range amplifier.

The power rating for the Jamo MPA-201 power amplifier are obtained using fixed value test load impedances and high intensity sine wave test tones.However,the actual impedance of the loudspeakerwillvarywithfrequency,deviatingsomewhatfromtheloudspeakermanufacturer's nominal impedance rating.

This Jamo amplifier has been specially designed to drive any modern loudspeaker system with a rated impedance of 4 Ohms or higher.
