AudioControl has announced the introduction of three CM Series 70-volt amplifiers featuring Dante digital audio networking capability. Dante is an uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology that moves data over a standard IP network using readily available CAT5e, CAT6, or fiber optic cable with near-zero latency and synchronization. There are over 1600 Dante-enabled products available, providing integrators with a broad range of choices when assembling a multi-zone entertainment system.
With the new Made in USA Dante-enabled CM Series amps from AudioControl, any source can be accessed from anywhere on the network, and up to eight streams of digital content can be routed to any Dante-enabled device. And because the Dante technology utilizes a master clock, all connected devices remain in precise synchronization for a seamless audio experience.
AudioControl’s CM Series 70-volt amplifiers with Dante connectivity are available in three versions—4-channel, 3-channel, and 2-channel. Each amplifier delivers 750 watts per channel in 70/100-volt mode, 500 watts per channel at 8 ohms (stereo or mono output), and 750 watts per channel at 2 or 4 ohms and 1500 watts bridged into either a 70/100v and 8- or 4-ohm load. Each amplifier 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.
CM Series amplifiers offer the DSP control and signal matrixing capabilities developed by AudioControl for their Director Series amplifiers. These features enable integrators to tailor the sound by zone to any environment. 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 CM Series amplifiers via IP and/or RS232.
DSP capabilities include onboard speaker profiles crafted by the engineers from leading architectural and commercial 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 graphic and parametric equalization along with onboard crossovers.
AudioControl Dante-enabled CM Series amplifiers will become available Q2, 2020.
AudioControl is at ISE 2020 Booth 5-R96.
