ℹ Product Information

There is a solution for those in smaller living spaces, for those that have efficient systems, or for those who like the 866 Integrated sonically but prefer separates. The 861 Stereo Power Amplifier checks all these boxes. The 861 being the newest expansion of the 800 series is the same exact size as the 812 DAC Preamplifier it makes for an attractive combo both visually and audibly. All the boards and chassis are still made in Boulder’s dedicated facility in Colorado. You get the high performance, the expertise and craftsmanship in a manageable package.

The 861 is Boulders first amplifier in its size and it punches well above its weight class. Don’t believe us? You should really listen for yourself.
