Pivetta “Opera Only” is so huge due to fact it must be able to provide 160.000 watts, as well as to be unique and so different from any other amplifier. This “walk-in” amplifier, based on intuition, imagination, genius solution, is a creation of Andrea Pivetta, an Italian electronics designer who has worked with a diverse range of Italian companies in different areas for over 20 years.
