Craftsmen 500


Ultra-fidelity is a new concept in audio amplifier performance previously found only in the research laboratory.

With an ultra-fidelity amplifier, harmonic and other types of distortion either approach the point of vanishing or are truly negligible over the entire range from 20 to 20,000 cps.

In order to maintain excellence throughout this range, the complete frequency range of an ultra-fidelity amplifier must be considerably wider than the audio range.

The Craftsmen 500 amplifier now brings ultra-fidelity from the research laboratory to the home.
