AudioControl, makers of innovative high-performance audio solutions for the residential, commercial and automotive markets will be expanding their amplifier offerings with the introduction of their new CM line of 70-volt amplifiers along with other important new product introductions detailed below at CEDIA Expo 2018, booth 2937.
AudioControl’s made-in-USA 70-volt amplifier solutions, delivering 750 watts per channel all-channels-driven, enable integrators to deliver superior quality entertainment content through a large number of speakers connected to each output—addressing nearly any system configuration. This flexibility is particularly useful to integrators when assembling a premium outdoor audio system as well as a large variety of residential and commercial audio/video applications. AudioControl’s new CM Series 70-volt amplifiers are unique because unlike competitive solutions, they offer the DSP control and signal matrixing capabilities, enabling integrators to precisely tailor the sound by zone to any environment. Additionally, CM Series amps support dual mode functionality, enabling simultaneous 70-volt and 8-ohm operation on selected channels—plus digital and analog audio inputs, delivering the highest-degree of flexibility in the category.
The latest addition to AudioControl’s line of theater amplifiers is the new Avalon G3, a versatile high-performance 4/3/2 channel amplifier capable of driving the height channels as part of an immersive surround system (4-channel – 250 watts @ 8 ohm, 300 watts @ 4 ohms) or a 2.1 audio system (stereo pair plus bridged pair) as well as a dedicated 2-channel music system delivering 600 watts into 8 ohm loudspeakers. Each pair of channels features hi/lo/bypass crossover controls, balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) inputs as well as RCA throughputs to achieve multiple configuration options. The 2U rack space Avalon G3 also features independent channel level controls, premium 5-way binding posts and switchable 110/220-volt operation.
AudioControl’s new Rialto 400 features a smart-switching auxiliary input capable of overriding both digital and analog inputs when it senses signal. This enables the user to query using voice commands on Amazon Echo or Google Voice and rely on the Rialto 400 to pause either input, provide the response from either automated device and immediately switch back to whichever input was active.
