AudioControl has launched its new series of Architectural amplifiers.
AudioControl’s ‘Architect’ line of multi-channel amplifiers provides power and installer-friendly equalization controls without sacrificing valuable rack space. The new Architect models are designed for any whole-house audio system that demands high levels of audio performance squeezing 12 or 16 channels of cool running, high power amplification into just three space efficient rack spaces.
AudioControl’s new Architect amplifiers come in four primary models:
• Architect 1680 EQ – 16 Channel amplifier with speaker equalization
• Architect 1660 – 16 Channel amplifier (without speaker equalization)
• Architect 1280 EQ – 12 Channel amplifier with speaker equalization
• Architect 1260 – 12 Channel amplifier (without speaker equalization)
• All 12 and 16 channel Architect models have the option of adding optional Ethernet control for remote monitoring and network control
The Architect Model 1680 EQ and Model 1280 EQ combine AudioControl’s zone equalization, bussable inputs and LightDrive anti-clipping circuitry, into one compact chassis. With power output levels of at least 65 watts per channel into 8 Ohms, and even more into lower impedances, AudioControl sets the industry standard for high performance multi-zone audio amplification, also achieving less than 1 watt in standby mode.
Alex Camara, CEO of AudioControl said, “Our team has a relentless enthusiasm for perfect sound performance and have lived these values for nearly four decades. The introduction of our new high-power Architect amplifiers is another example of the passion we have to ‘make good sound great’ in all our products, every day.
"The introduction of the Architect Model 1680 EQ and Model 1280 EQ meets the needs of the Architects, Designers, Custom Installers that use our products everyday in their work and our customers in providing whole-house audio systems that that ‘make good sound great’ and they can rely upon.
"With features such as bussable inputs, mono switching, custom equalization as well as our rack-saving, cool running amplifier topology, we are excited to launch our latest Architect models to compliment our complete line-up of successful architectural and network amplifiers," Camara said. "In addition all our 12 and 16 channel Architect models now have the option of adding Ethernet control for remote monitoring and network control."
