Cloud introduces the VTX series of multi-channel amplifiers23 March 2011
Cloud Electronics has announced the introduction of the VTX Series of high-power multi-channel amplifiers. The range features three power level variants: VTX4120 offers 4x120w, VTX4240 and VTX4400 offer 4x240w and 4x400w respectively, all into 4 ohms.
Designed with precision, the new Cloud range claims high quality acoustic performance across the long term. Built in accordance with Cloud’s principle of reliability, the VTX series is said to offer low maintenance and worry-free installations.
The 2U rack-mounting amplifiers boast studio quality VCA input modules for Remote Level Control (RL-1) as standard and feature a switched hi-pass filter (18 dB/oct below 65 Hz) for each channel as well as extensive protection against short-circuit and reactive loads, clipping, DC and overheating.
The range achieves a crosstalk performance of >90dB making it noise-free across all channels at any volume, and claimed to be the best in its class. All models are configurable for 4-channel, dual stereo or mono use and includes balanced line level inputs with gain trim.
The VTX range is available with an optional web monitoring card (VTX-WM1) which is retrofittable on all models. It allows the amplifier’s performance and settings (internal temperature, signal level, PSU status, protection circuitry and remote volume levels) to be monitored at a remote location using any computer, PDA or Smartphone via its normal Internet browser application. No dedicated software is necessary. As well as checking the integrity of the amplifier, the VTX-WM1 generates a test signal for the load impedance test, at one or more user-definable frequencies.
Also available as options are: the RL-1 remote music level controller, and EQ cards for both Bose and Amina loudspeakers.
The products are shipping now with Cloud’s five year warranty for peace of mind.
