Stereo Power Amplifier

The 1060 Stereo Amplifier is infused with over 30 years of experience in amplifier design. You can feel it in the build, which is weighty and solid. You can see it in the construction, which has the best fit and finish in the business. And you can hear it in the performance, thanks to its excellent resolution and control.

Not your average amplifier then, but an extraordinary one. As a Boulder, it’s exactly what you would expect it to be.


  • Powerful 300W stereo output will drive virtually any loudspeaker

  • Casework machined entirely from solid aluminum plate and bead-blasted in Boulder's dedicated manufacturing facility

  • Boulder Link control system to integrate the 1060 with other Boulder products

  • Fully balanced circuit design to reduce distortion and noise

  • Two pairs of durable, sturdy speaker connectors per channel require no tools for secure connections and can accommodate bi-wired loudspeakers

  • 56 solid-state output devices for excellent reliability, control, and power into any load

  • Two large, toroidal transformers, potted and housed in a welded steel case to eliminate any vibration or hum

  • Boulder's 983 gain stage, a combination of discrete and monolithic parts, for excellent resolution and current drive

  • Precision surface-mount circuit board design housed inside non-resonant casework to reduce distortion
