Camplifier 280

280W add on amplifier module for the KPA toaster

The new Camplifier 280 is an add-on amplifier module for the Kemper Profiling Amplifier „Toaster.“ It is the successor of the Camplifier 180, which has been used by hundreds of guitarists worldwide since its introduction in 2013. Although the 180 was nearly perfect, several improvements have been made in the new Camplifier 280.

First, the 280 has no internal fan for cooling. Instead, it uses more modern heat transfer technology, which means it works 100% noiselessly. Second, the 280 can handle all mains standards worldwide (85-265V / 50-60Hz) without any action needed from the user. Third, the 280 can work with speaker cabinet impedances of 4, 8, or 16 ohms, giving the user more flexibility in their choice of cabinets. Lastly, the 280 has more power than the 180, with 180 watts @ 8 ohms or 90 watts @ 16 ohms.

Here are the new power specifications :

RMS power @1% THD @230V4816ohms

Burst Power 500W :

The new Camplifier 280 has a class D power amplifier and a modern internal power supply, which is technically superior to that of the 180. Although the sound quality of the 180 was already good, some test users of the new amplifier have stated that it sounds even more transparent and defined. The new amplifier runs internally at higher voltage levels and its power handling design has been vastly improved. This leads to higher burst power numbers, which is the power the unit can supply to a speaker cabinet for a very short time. This means your attack will stay punchy, fast, and clear without compression or signal distortion.

The Camplifier 280 will transform your KPA toaster into a guitar amplifier head, comparable to a 200+ watt tube amplifier head. Simply place your Kemper Toaster on top of a guitar cabinet, plug it in, and start playing! With a burst power of 500W, it will be enough to play in most situations, and you won’t have to worry about not having enough power at your disposal.
