AudioControl to Unveil Lineup of Premium 70-Volt Amplifiers at InfoComm 2018
Ahead of Infocomm, AudioControl has announced the introduction of three highly versatile 70-volt amplifiers. AudioControl’s Made in USA 70-volt amplifier solutions enable integrators to deliver superior quality entertainment content through a large number of speakers connected to each output—and thus a greater number of total speakers can be connected to each amplifier. This configuration flexibility is particularly useful for outdoor audio systems as well as a large variety of commercial A/V applications.
The first model in the series to become available will be the 4-channel CM4-700, followed shortly thereafter by 2-channel and 3-channel versions—all based on a similar high-performance platform.
These new amplifiers are unique in the realm of 70-volt options because they offer the DSP control and signal matrixing capabilities developed by AudioControl for their award-winning Director Series amplifiers. These key features enable integrators to precisely tailor the sound by zone to any environment—from Houses of Worship, Boardrooms, Hospitality, Collaboration Suites and more.
DSP capabilities include onboard speaker profiles crafted by the engineers from leading architectural loudspeaker manufacturers such as Dynaudio, Graysound, James Loudspeaker, Monitor Audio, Nuvo, Origin Acoustics, Stealth Acoustics and Triad Speakers—all part of a growing list of Sound Partner Program members. AudioControl’s 70-volt amplifiers also offer advanced graphics and parametric equalization along with onboard crossovers, enabling integrators to fine-tune the sound to any acoustic environment.
The CM4-700 delivers 750 watts in 70/100 volt mode, 500 watts at 8-ohms (stereo or mono output) and 750 watts at 2 or 4-ohms and 1500 watts bridged into either a 70/100v and 8 or 4 ohm load. The amplifier also offers eight analog inputs (four stereo) – plus four digital stereo inputs – digital coax and optical.
The four outputs can be individually controlled or be controlled as two stereo pairs, giving integrators the system configuration flexibility they need to accommodate any system architecture. For maximum efficiency, system setup and diagnostics can be managed remotely via an IP web-based browser or app for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android, facilitating control of the amplifier via IP and/or RS232. AudioControl has a 40-plus year history of creating award-winning products for integrators and backing them up with superior customer service as well as a 5-year warranty. Engineered and manufactured in the Pacific Northwest, the CM4-700 is yet another example of a best-in-class product design from AudioControl.
