Flexible new audio amp from Crestron8 March 2010
The MP-AMP30 is billed as a convenient, low-cost audio amplifier for applications in which audio from source equipment is directly connected to and switched by a video projector. Available now, the MP-AMP30 amplifier drives the audio signal from these sources directly to external speakers.
Developed for simple installation and set-up, the MP-AMP30 is suitable for use as a stand-alone amplifier or a complement to Crestron MPC controllers and wall-plates. The surface-mountable device features Class D circuitry delivering 15W per channel to drive one or two pairs of 8 ohm speakers or a single pair of 4 ohm speakers, supporting stereo speakers at the front of a room or mono versions in the ceiling.
The specification also includes detachable output connectors, RCA inputs, rotary controls and an extruded aluminium housing.
Petra van Meeuwen, marketing manager at Crestron, told IE: "This new audio amplifier will be of keen interest to those running corporate facilities looking for convenient, low-cost audio amplifiers where audio from source equipment is directly connected to and switched by the video projector. We see this demand increasingly in both the education and corporate commercial markets, and with its inherent energy-saving design the MP-AMP30 will also appeal to AV departments looking to cut running costs."
