Parasound has introduced the ZoneMaster ZM2350, a 350-watt per channel Class D stereo power amplifier with an extensive custom install feature set. It’s available now through Connected Distribution.

The two-channel ZM2350 features low-noise class AB input stages and analogue bass management, A and B speaker switches, stereo/mono selection and a switchable 30Hz/80Hz high-pass filter. Both line level and speaker level inputs are provided, along with the option to daisy chain at line level to another amplifier.

"While this is probably my 38th new power amplifier introduction, I am especially excited about the ZoneMaster 2350 as something new and different for Parasound," says Parasound president Richard Schram. "It has the high horsepower our industry has come to expect from good Class D, and by marrying it with our industry-leading analogue input stage and unique connectivity options, we've created a remarkably rugged, maximum-fidelity amp that can play at the red-line all day. With bass management and versatile installation features, it is also a really practical choice for commercial systems."

In line with other ZoneMaster amplifiers, the ZM2350 includes a two-channel analogue 80Hz, 24dB/octave low-pass crossover for driving up to four 8-ohm passive subwoofers. A mono mode provides support for eight 8-ohm full-range mono speakers, for applications where stereo sound is not required, such as bars and restaurants.

There’s also separate level control for each channel, which can be used to limit the output when using speakers with in-wall volume controls, for left/right balance adjustment to compensate for room placement or to restrict the maximum level in a particular zone.

The 2350 also sports a mono full range line level output and an 80Hz low pass line level output for use with an active subwoofer. There’s also audio-sensing or 12 Volt trigger auto turn-on options.

The Parasound ZoneMaster ZM2350 retails for £1,449.
