ISE 2013: Niles Audio introduces multi-zone amps ‘for every application’29 January 2013
Custom installation technology specialist Niles Audio has introduced a new line of five systems integration amplifiers that includes the retooled SI-1230 Series 2 amplifier – the successor to the SI-1230, which was inducted to the CEDIA Hall of Fame in 2011.
The three new two-channel Niles Systems integration amplifiers, the SI-250, SI-2100, and SI2150, feature audio circuitry constructed using the finest materials available, including 1% metal film resistors, high quality capacitors and oversized heat sinks that ensure proper cooling without the need for a noisy fan.
The amplifiers deliver 50W, 100W, or 150W RMS per channel at eight ohms and 100W, 220W, or 270W RMS per channel at four ohms respectively. For applications requiring high output, such as subwoofers or rock speakers, each of these amplifiers can also be operated in a bridged mono configuration, resulting in the delivery of 225W, 400W, or 550W respectively.
Each amplifier channel features an independent level control enabling precise volume matching to the rest of the system. They also feature gold plated stereo inputs, cascade stereo outputs, and five way binding posts.
Also new, the SI-1230 Series 2 Systems Integration Amplifier is a fully configurable 12-channel power amplifier that provides 30W per channel (80W when bridged) and features a unique BusMatrix selector that allows each channel to be set to left bus, right bus, left plus right bus (summed stereo), or the channel’s dedicated input.
Finally, the SI-1650 16-channel amplifier features a unique web browser configurator that allows each channel to select from any of the 16 inputs or combination of inputs. The versatile amplifier delivers 50W per channel and includes a high power mode that produces 100W per channel for eight channels.
