AudioControl launched three highly versatile 70-volt amplifiers at this year's Infocomm. The 70-volt amplifier solutions, which will be available in Q4, enable integrators to deliver superior quality entertainment content through a large number of speakers connected to each output. This configuration flexibility is particularly useful for outdoor audio systems as well as a large variety of commercial AV applications.

The company says that these new amplifiers are unique in the realm of 70-volt options because they offer the DSP control and signal matrixing capabilities developed by AudioControl for its Director Series amplifiers. These key features enable integrators to precisely tailor the sound by zone to any environment - from Houses of Worship, Boardrooms, Hospitality, Collaboration Suites and more.

DSP capabilities include onboard speaker profiles crafted by the engineers from leading architectural loudspeaker manufacturers such as Dynaudio, Graysound, James Loudspeaker, Monitor Audio, Nuvo, Origin Acoustics, Stealth Acoustics and Triad Speakers—all part of a growing list of Sound Partner Program members. AudioControl’s 70-volt amplifiers also offer advanced graphics and parametric equalisation along with onboard crossovers, enabling integrators to fine-tune the sound to any acoustic environment.

The first model in the series to become available will be the 4-channel CM4-700, followed shortly after that by 2-channel and 3-channel versions—all based on a similar high-performance platform. The CM4-700 delivers 750W in 70/100 volt mode, 500W at 8-ohms (stereo or mono output) and 750W at 2 or 4-ohms and 1500W bridged into either a 70/100v and 8 or 4-ohm load. The amplifier also offers eight analogue inputs, plus four digital stereo inputs, both digital coax and optical.

The four outputs can be individually controlled or be controlled as two stereo pairs, giving integrators the system configuration flexibility they need to accommodate any system architecture. For maximum efficiency, system setup and diagnostics can be managed remotely via an IP web-based browser or app for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android facilitating control of the amplifier via IP or RS232.
