AudioControl has announced the introduction of three 70-volt amplifiers with both DSP control and signal matrixing capabilities. DSP capabilities include onboard speaker profiles for loudspeaker manufacturers such as Dynaudio, Graysound, James Loudspeaker, Monitor Audio, Nuvo, Origin Acoustics, Stealth Acoustics and Triad Speakers. In addition, they also offer graphic and parametric equalization along with onboard crossovers.
The first model in the series to become available will be the four-channel CM4-700, followed shortly thereafter by two-channel and three-channel versions — all based on a similar high performance platform. The CM4-700 is spec’d at 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. 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.
The AudioControl CM4-700 lists at $2,600. Here are all the specs.
