The first product in their 1100 series, the Boulder 1160 Stereo Amplifier has the unenviable task of following in the footsteps of the audiophile revered 1060. But it's up to the task, with better circuit layout and thermal management, providing for improved sound quality and less interference. Just like its predecessor, it can generate output power of up to 300 watts, which can push any set of loudspeakers to ideal levels. But the technological upgrades — including a more compact design and the ability to work with other networked devices in the home — help it truly stand out. Add in the machined front panel that depicts the topography of Flagstaff Mountain near Boulder, and you have what is certain to be another huge hit amongst audiophiles.
