Product Description

BasX A-800 provides eight separate channels of amplification, which can be used as eight separate channels, or as four stereo pairs, or as four bridged channels, each capable of delivering higher power.

Circuit Topology

The BasX A-800 is an eight-channel power amplifier, specifically designed for use in multi-zone and whole home applications. Each individual amplifier channel features a carefully designed high current, short signal path, Class A/B output stage, with advanced microprocessor-controlled monitoring and protection circuitry.


The eight amplifier channels in the A-800 are arranged to provide the absolute maximum in terms of flexibility: A pair of stereo bus inputs can be used to send the same source signal to each pair of channels, or each channel can be fed with its own individual input signal.

Flexible triggering options allow the BasX A-800 to be turned on manually, or by a trigger signal from your processor or preamp, or configured to turn on automatically when it senses an audio input. Perfect for running multiple pairs of speakers in different locations or rooms and can provide plenty of great sounding power to run up to four separate pairs of in-ceiling or in-wall speakers in up to four different zones.

Superb Audio

The goal of putting together an exceptional audio system is to enrich your life with outstanding sound. BasX components combine great sound quality, a carefully chosen set of genuinely useful features, and rock-solid performance, with a simple yet elegant design.

You can build a complete music system out of our BasX components that will give you a true audiophile listening experience. Or try adding one or two BasX components to round out your existing audio system. Great sounding audio doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.

Great Simplicity

While the BasX A-800 offers lots of performance, you won’t need an advanced degree to install and use it, and you won’t need to rewire your home. The BasX A-800 ships with a removable heavy-duty industry standard IEC power cable. Just plug it into an outlet, connect it to your preamp or processor and your speakers, and you’re done. Your BasX A-800 will figure out your line voltage automatically, and its speaker outputs are heavy-duty five-way binding posts that accept bare wire, banana plugs, or spade lugs.

Quality Construction

A heavy duty linear power supply with an oversized toroidal power transformer delivers plenty of current to drive even difficult speakers. Top quality parts and construction throughout for years of reliable trouble-free service.

Heavy steel 2RU chassis with milled aluminium faceplate offers strength and rugged good looks. Double-sided FR4 circuit boards with plated-through holes help optimise signal paths and minimize the need for point-to-point wiring.

Flexible Connections

Unbalanced inputs via industry standard RCA connectors accept all standard unbalanced interconnects. Heavy duty insulated five-way speaker binding posts allow you to use a wide range of speaker cables with bare wires, lugs, or banana plugs.

Remote trigger input and output allow the BasX A-800 to control and be controlled by other trigger-enabled equipment. The BasX A-800 is designed to operate on either 115 VAC or 230 VAC at 50/60 Hz and will automatically detect and configure itself for the proper line voltage.

Multi-Zone Capabilities

Eight fully independent amplifier channels; each speaker output is powered by its own separate amplifier channel. Bridgeable outputs; each pair of amplifier channels can be independently configured to act as two separate channels, or bridged into a single higher-powered channel. Flexible input options; each pair of channels on the BasX A-800 to receive its input signal from its own independent input, or from the stereo bus input.
