AudioControl Adds Monitor Audio to Sound Partners Program AudioControl has added Monitor Audio to its Sound Partners Program (SPP).By RS Staff Published: February 22, 2017 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 AudioControl has added Monitor Audio to its Sound Partners Program (SPP). The AudioControl SPP was established as a cooperative initiative with industry leading architectural speaker manufacturers to implement performance profiles as defined by each brand’s engineers. These profiles, when stored in the DSP onboard the AudioControl Director M-Series eight- and 16-channel amplifiers, create an optimized whole-house entertainment/commercial audio platform for professional integrators. DSP profiles are now available for Monitor Audio CLG140 and CLG160 garden speakers and their recently unveiled IV140 in-wall/in-ceiling architectural speaker system. Integrators using both AudioControl DSP-enabled Director M-Series amplifiers with any of these Monitor Audio loudspeaker models will be able to take advantage of the profiles as well as the fine-tuning capabilities of these amplifiers. “We are excited to work with the team at Monitor Audio and welcome them as new members of our Sound Partners Program,” said AudioControl CEO Alex Camara. “The SPP provides professional integrators with the tools they need to differentiate themselves in a competitive market while delivering superb sound quality to their clients.” The matrixing capabilities of the Director M-Series allow any of eight analog or two digital inputs to be routed to any zone output. The 2U M-Series M6400 and M6800 includes two digital SPDIF inputs plus two SPDIF outputs that are tied to the matrix so that any one of the input sources can be routed through the digital outputs. These digital outputs can then be connected to the digital inputs on additional M-Series amplifiers, enabling integrators to use multiple amplifiers and assign input signal routing as needed. The Director M-Series is expanding with the addition of two new models including a 1U, eight-channel solution, the M4800, in the coming weeks. All models are capable of 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms, 200 watts at 4 ohms, and 400 watts bridged.
