AudioControl shipping CM Series amplifiers
AudioControl is now shipping three highly versatile CM Series amplifiers, winner of several prestigious awards for design, innovation and performance including the 2021 CEDIA Best New Hardware award.
The AudioControl CM Series amplifiers use a highly sophisticated Constant Power Mode architecture featuring GaN (Gallium Nitride) semiconductors – a ground-breaking circuit engineered by AudioControl to deliver more output power, greater efficiency and superb sound quality.
CM Series amplifiers are the perfect complement to AudioControl’s best-in-class 4/8Ω Architect and Director Series amplifiers, engineered as the ultimate solution for professional integrators.
AudioControl chief executive, Alex Camara, says: “The performance we have been able to achieve from the CM Series 70-volt amplifier platform is nothing short of astonishing. These amps have redefined the value proposition for integrators seeking to deliver best solutions across a vast range of projects.”
CM Series amplifiers feature optional Dante digital audio networking capability (Dante option available beginning Q1, 2022) along with the flexibility of both 70-volt and 4/8-Ohm (Dual-Mode) compatibility. These ultimate-performance amplifiers are ideally suited for commercial and residential A/V installations, delivering best-in-class audio performance, legendary build quality, channel matrixing and a powerful, intuitive DSP engine that is second to none.
The features and performance of CM Series amplifiers enable integrators to precisely tailor the sound by zone to any environment—from houses of worship, boardrooms, hospitality, collaboration suites and more. CM Series amplifiers are compatible with popular smart home platforms such as Crestron, RTi and Control4, enabling control of Dante signal routing as well as volume up/down and power on/off by zone. There are three available channel configurations for the CM Series amplifiers:
- CM4-750 – 4-Channel high-power Dual-Mode DSP-enabled amplifier
- CM3-750 – 3-Channel high-power Dual-Mode DSP-enabled amplifier
- CM2-750 – 2-Channel high-power Dual-Mode DSP-enabled amplifier
Each model offers eight analogue inputs (two analogue inputs can be set to accommodate a microphone) plus two digital audio inputs (coax and optical). The amplified outputs of each CM Series model can be individually controlled as mono outputs or controlled as stereo pairs, giving integrators the system configuration flexibility, they need to accommodate any system architecture.
