Despite the increasing popularity of powered speakers, many speakers and headphones still require external amplification. The RA150 is designed to provide more power and better performance, at a lower overall cost per watt than the earlier RA100. As a result, it can more closely match the power needs of virtually any passive speaker or studio monitor, and provides a crisp, clean signal for outstanding performance and extended speaker life.

Designed for studio use, the RA150 amp incorporates advanced convection cooling for heat dissipation. The result is long, stable operation unaffected by heat-related complications, and without the added distraction and annoyance of fan cooling. This eliminates the frustration of trying to hear quieter details due to noisy amp performance.

        Comments about Alesis RA150 Amplifier:

        I have a pair of near field monitors for a number of years that I wanted to used in my home studio. Other Amps I have (over 200 Watts/Channel was too much power and feared I would blow out the speakers one day. The Alesis had just enough power and all the features I needed to get them back into service. I have good experience with Alesis gear for over 20 years. If it was 1RU Size i would give it 5 stars

                  Both B&H and the Amp were simple to order and operate. The amp function as it should and is good for my Roland Piano and voice amplification uses for small audiences.

                    I have 3-4 of these for multiple studio monitors. We've had them for many, many years. When one goes out, I replace it with a new one. I'm surprised they even still make it to be quite honest. They aren't the greatest of all amps, but for the price, you can't really complain too much.

                        I really have absolutely nothing bad to say about this amp for the price. Powers a pair of Alesis Monitor One's beautifully. I really like the way this thing looks, personally. I was glad to discover it has very pronounced position clicks so you can make sure each channel is set identically. I would definitely recommend this amp for anyone on a budget needing something in this power range.
