Available now, the new Bowers & Wilkins CDA-16 has been engineered to work with any existing Bowers & Wilkins custom installation speaker. With the ability to drive 16 channels or 8 stereo zones, the 1U-sized CDA-16 allows users to bridge its Class D stereo amplifier channels to create more powerful mono outputs, if required.
As standard, CDA-16 offers 50W to each of its 16 channels in to 8-ohm loads, rising to 100W with 4-ohm speakers. Select the bridging function, and that rises to 200W into 8 ohms. Connect sources through its eight pairs of RCA phono inputs for line-level analog connection with the option of using one set of inputs as a ‘global’ connection that shares the same signal across all outputs.
Suitable for rack-mounting, the CDA-16 uses cool-running Class D amplification to ensure maximum power output coupled to energy efficiency. At just 44.5mm high, it’s accommodated in both hi-fi and installation rack systems.
Price is $1999.99 USD.
