The Design

Efficent Protection

This switching type amplifier class has incredible efficiency, above 90%, as higher power is demanded. This means substantially less heat is produced even though the amplifier is able to produce substantial power. This also means a reduction in size as smaller heat sinks are required and the electronic circuitry can be more compact and reside in a smaller chassis..

Built-in circuits that sense both thermal overload or a short-circuit in the speaker connections, will shut down the amplifier until the temperature level returns to normal operating levels or the short in the connections is corrected. This protects the amplifier from permanent damage and avoids costly service visits and repairs.

Rock Solid

Great sound and durability are the hallmarks of Origin amplifiers. When designing a system, regardless of its size or complexity, amplification is a critical tool that needs to perform all the time, every time. These amplifiers resoundingly answer the call.

All foundation models feature the same automation and protection circuits, make them a flexible and powerful addition to any system.

The Application


Origin amplifiers can be placed in a rack or inside furniture and require no direct access to function. They are turned on out of standby mode either by sensing the audio signal from a preamp or receiver or by a 12-volt signal from any number of components. They also have a 12-volt output to trigger other components as necessary.

For an even closer aesthetic blend, Origin grilles are designed to be painted to match the ceiling or the walls. This further disguises the grilles and makes them a seamless part of the room.

Rack It Up

Many systems require multiple channels of amplification. One way to do this is by stacking several two-channel amplifiers until the desired number of channels is achieved. The powerful A2150 is perfect in this scenario as the amp is so efficient that it creates very little heat. This allows it to play very well with other components when housed in a rack. They can obviously be fed with independent sources or daisy chained using the buffered throughput.

The Finish

Beautiful Sound From Above

Careful consideration is taken as you decide on the various elements in your home. Furniture, wall coverings, lighting, accents, and décor all contribute to the environment in which you live. These are all items experienced as the look and feel and they create an atmosphere that becomes a part of your daily experience. At Origin, we contend that music throughout the home can have an incredible effect on this experience. Being enveloped in beautiful sound that emanates from walls and ceilings can enhance everyday life unlike any other addition to your home. Imagine guests being immersed in music as they relax in the family room or join you for dinner. Create a musical environment that will enrich the lives of all who enter your home.

The Origin Acoustics Advantage

A blend of incredible sound quality and artistic design is what sets the loudspeakers at Origin apart. Having created the first, modern, in-wall speaker in 1976, the team at Origin has spent decades perfecting the concept. Today you can enjoy the result of this effort as we apply the most advanced technologies and materials to recreate music with unparalleled fidelity. The ability to fit larger speakers in smaller spaces and then pivot the speaker to focus the sound at the listening area are only two of the many innovations our engineers have pioneered. All of this happens behind a discreet grille that blends into your décor and delivers incredible sonic performance that appears to originate from thin air. Fill your life with the finest music and be confident in the fact that your speakers will continue to do so for years to come.
