Monitor Audio has expanded its range of custom install audio solutions with the IA40-3 installation amplifier. Designed for easy installation, the amplifier’s customisable brackets allow it to be positioned in multiple locations, be it on a wall, cabinet, stand or the back of a television.

The IA40-3 features digital and analogue inputs, plus aptX Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. The optical input supports Dolby Digital. For automation configuration, there’s an RS232 connection.

The amp offers a 40W output over three channels, at 4Ohms, or 60W over two channels, and can be configured in a multitude of ways. It can be paired with bookshelf or stand-mount speakers in a bedroom, study or sitting room, or partnered with in-ceiling speakers in a kitchen, bedroom or media room.

Without mounting brackets, the amp measures 31.4 x 180 x 110.5 mm (h/w/d); with mounting brackets 32.6 x 196 x 182.5 mm. It can be mounted on the back of a TV using supplied Velcro strips, or a bespoke bracket. An external IR sensor can learn volume controls from the TV’s remote control, to support a hidden mounting location.

The amplifier can be the hub of a 3.1 system. For more bass, an active subwoofer can also be connected to the IA40-3 via the sub/ line out.

The IA40-3 sports a unique heat sink fin, designed to aid cooling in tight spaces. The supplied customisable brackets can be bent to fit, with flexible break off sections for maximum installation versatility.

“With the IA40-3, our development team really met the brief they were given and have created a compact, stylish and versatile amplifier which will delight our customers,’ says Monitor Audio technical director, Michael Hedge.
