An integrated amplifier of the highest aesthetic, technical and audio reproductive quality. Beautiful, simple and functional by design. As easy as childs play to operate. Resourceful enough to hold the most power-hungry speakers in a viselike grip, yet at the same time musical, respectful and authentic.
Teaching it to sing
Thousands of hours have passed while “voicing”, a process where each and every component has been carefully selected and optimised to ensure that the AMP-150 does not leave any fingerprints on the music. The way the AMP-150 plays is therefore quite unusual; aurally, this is about the closest you can get to a straight wire with built-in amplification.
With more than 250W RMS @ 4ohms available in each channel, the AMP-150 delivers more than enough voltage to avoid clipping in the high peaks, offering loads of headroom and musical freedom.
The Gato Audio TwinFET technology has been developed to counter problems and compromises that are present in the majority of power amplifiers. Our TwinFET circuit solves these electrical and sonic problems at the point where they are created, thereby avoiding adding compromising correctional circuits and components.
This is the basic reason why you will only find two output transistors per channel in the AMP-150s output stage, one for the positive and one for the negative part of a sine wave, nothing more, nothing less.

As standard we offer top covers in high gloss black, white and real walnut veneer to match the finish of our loudspeakers. But what if you prefer to have your AMP-150 match another brand of speakers or a piece of furniture or the color of your Lamborghini? Gato Audio offer to make bespoke top covers for you. It could be special painted covers or covers made from solid wood.
