High-powered 8-channel (1U) and 16-channel (2U) amplifiers deliver the benefits of DSP fine tuning capability as well as time-saving digital profiles for a growing list of popular architectural speakers
AudioControl, makers of innovative high-performance audio solutions for the residential, commercial and automotive markets has introduced The Director models D4600 16-channel and D2800 8-channel high-powered amplifiers for whole-house entertainment, engineered to address the needs of integration specialists and deliver exceptional performance from a sleek form factor. Both D-Series amplifiers deliver an unmatched combination of features, superb sound quality and fine-tuning capability elevating them far above all other solutions in the multi-zone amplifier marketplace.
AudioControl D-Series amplifiers leverage technology from the company’s award-winning Director M-Series amplifier lineup, delivering the benefits of DSP (digital signal processing) and onboard digital profiles of the most popular architectural loudspeakers created in conjunction with engineers from each brand. Both D-Series models produce 100 watts/8-Ohms, 200 watts/4-Ohms per channel for the highest quality entertainment programming to any zone. Integrators can tailor the sound based on DSP profiles of leading speaker brands as part of AudioControl’s Sound Partners Program, and then fine-tune these DSP profiles by individual zones based on acoustic environment. AudioControl D-Series amplifiers enable integrators to deliver 8-channels of premium performance from a 1U chassis (D2800) or 16-channels from a 2U chassis (D4600) to accommodate nearly any system configuration.
AudioControl’s powerful DSP engine includes graphic and parametric equalization by zone, network monitoring/programming. Channels are bridgeable, giving integrators configuration flexibility for system setup. No other multi-zone amplifier offers this combination of functionality and performance designed to satisfy a growing base of consumers and commercial applications demanding a superior entertainment experience.
AudioControl D-Series amplifiers are available exclusively through authorized dealer/integrators in Black Espresso brushed aluminum finish. As with all AudioControl Director amplifiers, the new D-Series models are manufactured in the USA and are backed by AudioControl’s standard 5-year warranty and unmatched customer service. Both units will become available beginning January, 2018 with a suggested client price of $4950 US for the D4600, $2480 US for the D2800.
