The Acoustic Image Clarus 2 S4 [series 4] PLUS Integrated Amp. The latest version of the little head that started a new trend in amplification. It just keeps getting better.
In a nutshell: Acoustic Image redesigned the front end preamp section making the little amp head more responsive to a musician's needs on the gig. And the back end power section is even cleaner and quieter. Amazing.
The Clarus S4plus retains two independent channels which accept either instrument or mic inputs [onboard 48v phantom for condenser mics]. The EQ section adds a two band Midrange section for more precise control and flexibility over this critical frequency range making the little head even more adaptable to most any musical instrument.

And for those others who just want the basic message: The Acoustic Image Clarus2 S4plus offers high fidelity performance for all instruments.
But the real story is about SOUND. Acoustic Image has improved fidelity in the S4plus series with more headroom and dropping the self-noise floor to nearly imperceptible. This makes a noticeable difference and the sound is transparent even at very high SPLs.
Solid state amplification just doesn't get any better than this.
