Pragmatic Communication Systems Inc. has always made it its mission to introduce energy efficient and compact products into the market. The MCA-1248, a 12-channel audiophile quality amplifier, is an example of that philosophy.
The MCA-1248 multi-channel amplifier has been designed to produce a big sound, yet be so efficient that it doesn’t require a heat sink or ventilating fan. According to Pragmatic, the small but powerful package delivers a high-fidelity performance that rivals the quality of amplifiers ten times its size and weight.
At only 10-pound, two-rack unit accepts any volume-controlled line level input and uses a quiet and efficient 110 V AC power supply. It also features advanced protection circuitry guards against system damage from overload, overheating, or short circuits.
There are a number of applications for the MCA-1248.
It is ideal for multi-room audio, bi-amplified speakers, and home theater systems, and it can power six rooms with ease and produces a signal-to-noise ratio and dynamic range of greater than 100 dB.
It maintains continuous power of 48 watts per channel with peak power of 90 watts per channel.
Like all Pragmatic amplifiers, the MCA-1248 boasts high efficiency and clock frequency.
Pragmatic amplifiers also have very linear gain and phase characteristics with a flat frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz.
There is no ripple in the pass band and very low change in distortion versus out power levels (usually between 0.01 and 0.05 percent).
