AudioControl Enhances CM Series 70-Volt Amplifiers with Dante Digital Audio Networking Capability
AudioControl (audiocontrol.com) has announced the introduction of three highly versatile CM Series 70-volt amplifiers featuring Dante® digital audio networking capability. Dante is an uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology that moves data over a standard IP network using readily available CAT5e, CAT6 or fiber optic cable with near-zero latency and synchronization. There are over 1,600 Dante-enabled products available, providing integrators with a broad range of choices when assembling a multi-zone entertainment system.
Connectivity Magic with Dante
With the new Made in USA Dante-enabled CM Series amps from AudioControl, any source can be accessed from anywhere on the network, and up to eight streams of digital content can be routed to any Dante-enabled device, creating limitless system architecture options for any size project. And because the Dante technology utilizes a master clock, all connected devices remain in precise synchronization for a seamless audio experience
A Powerful Story
AudioControl’s CM Series 70-volt amplifiers with Dante connectivity are available in three versions—4-channel, 3-channel and 2-channel models. Each amplifier delivers 750 watts per channel in 70/100 volt mode, 500 watts per channel at 8-ohms (stereo or mono output) and 750 watts per channel at 2 or 4-ohms and 1500 watts bridged into either a 70/100v and 8 or 4 ohm load. Each amplifier offers eight analog inputs (four stereo) – plus four digital stereo inputs – digital coax and optical. The four outputs can be individually controlled or be controlled as two stereo pairs, giving integrators the system configuration flexibility they need to accommodate any system architecture. CM Series amplifiers are unique in the realm of 70-volt options because they offer the DSP control and signal matrixing capabilities developed by AudioControl for their award-winning Director Series amplifiers. These key features enable integrators to precisely tailor the sound by zone to any environment—from Houses of Worship, Boardrooms, Hospitality, Collaboration Suites, residential projects and more. For maximum efficiency, system setup and diagnostics can be managed remotely via an IP web-based browser or app for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android, facilitating control of CM Series amplifiers via IP and/or RS232.AudioControl has a 40-plus year history of creating award-winning products for integrators and backing them up with superior customer service as well as a 5-year warranty. Engineered and manufactured in the Pacific Northwest, Dante-enabled CM Series amplifiers are yet another example of a best-in-class product design from AudioControl.
The Power of DSP and the Sound Partners Program
DSP capabilities include onboard speaker profiles crafted by the engineers from leading architectural and commercial loudspeaker manufacturers such as Dynaudio, Graysound, James Loudspeaker, Monitor Audio, Nuvo, Origin Acoustics, Stealth Acoustics and Triad Speakers—all part of a growing list of Sound Partner Program members. AudioControl’s 70-volt amplifiers also offer advanced graphic and parametric equalization along with onboard crossovers, enabling integrators to fine-tune the sound to any acoustic environment.
AudioControl Dante-enabled CM Series amplifiers will become available Q2, 2020.
