The Director Model M6400, part of AudioControl’s new Matrix M-Series, builds upon the success of AudioControl’s The Director D-Series. The new model drives sixteen channels of high-power amplification in a 2U chassis that delivers 65 watts per channel at 8 Ohms, 100 watts per channel at 4 Ohms, and 175 watts at 8 Ohm bridged, all channels driven.
The M6400 features on-board digital signal processing, graphic and parametric equalization by zone, network monitoring, and programming plus the addition of volume control, channel/zone grouping and zone audio presets. It also allows individual channel and zone selection via standard TCIP, the ability to bridge into low impedances while delivering incredible power, and AudioControl’s legendary audio performance.
The Director is always in control, communicating with the network and producing great audio. The Director Model M6400 harnesses the power of DSP processing to enable full matrix flexibility of any input to any output. Matrixing capabilities of the Director M series allow any of eight analog or two digital inputs to be routed to any zone output.
The Director Model M6400 includes two digital SPDIF inputs plus two SPDIF outputs that are included in the "matrixing" so that any one of the input sources can be routed through the digital outputs. These digital outputs can be connected to Director M series digital inputs so that multiple amplifiers can receive any signal from any inputs from any of the amplifiers. The Director Model M6400 has the benefit of operating either as a standalone matrix-amplifier or as part of a third party control systems from companies including Crestron, Savant, or Control 4.
The Director Model M6400 is available in brushed stainless steel or black finish and is designed, engineered, and manufactured in the rainforest of the Northwest somewhere North of Seattle. The Director M6400 also comes with AudioControl’s standard five-year warranty and is available exclusively to the residential custom-install and Pro-Audio market.
