FAITHFULLY REPRODUCE ALL IMMERSIVE AUDIO FORMATS IN THEIR FULL GLORY
A perfect companion to our brand new Altitude 16 and made with the most demanding users in mind, our new 8 channel amplifier brings intelligent power and pristine audio quality at a sensitive price point without any compromise in terms of design and build quality.
THE INDUSTRY’S LOWEST-DISTORTION AND NOISE SPECIFICATIONS
The importance of this trait cannot be over-estimated in a theater that may have twenty or thirty speakers in a single room. If each of those speakers were producing even a small amount of noise, it would rapidly become noticeable and unacceptable. This scenario never arises with the Amplitude8m.
Our amplifiers use microprocessor control for turn-on delay and feature an automatic AC power recognition and configuration system. The amplifiers not only recognize whether they are hooked up to 117V or 230V nominal power, they automatically self-configure.
The Amplitude8m incorporate a new “sleep” circuit. When the amplifier stays idle for a period of more than 10 minutes, power is removed from the output modules and a front-panel LED begins to flash. As soon as an input signal is detected again on any channel, normal playback operation resumes instantaneously.
