That's an S300 "Stasis". 150 W/ch, a very nice amp.

I have posted schematics of it at various times, and you can get them
from me by email.

This might be a bit OT but the Threshold Co. does uphold a webpage with all the old models! IMO they would be darf not to
Here is what the reputation builds on:

Raymond,

if you open the hood of the Stasis/300 and take a peek inside your Chiro-200 you should get a rough idea what to expect.

No offence, but the Dichiro/Insinilla designs were not exactly State of the Art.

The Kinergetics Chiro 200
Looks like a diy project.


found somebody selling one:

Big 2ch amplifier manufactured by Kinergetics Research. Premium build quality, 1kv toroid, huge power supplies. Unit weighs 42lbs. 140watts x2 @ an 8ohm resistance doubling to 280watts x2 into 4ohms.

This amp runs extremely cool, and sounds fantastic.
There are a few scratches on the top of the amp but the front faceplate looks great. All of the outputs and inputs are nice and tight and are 100% functional.

The Acurus and Adcom stuff simply cannot compete with the resolving power and neutrality of this amp. (I have had a 555 and A250) This is a killer amp that will drive almost anything.


MSRP: $1000

$320 shipped fedex ground.


sounds great!
