Firm will add three new compact, low cost and energy efficient products to its new Gain Series RANGE
Atlona, a leading global manufacturer of AV and IT distribution and connectivity solutions, is to unveil a trio of new ‘next generation, compact, affordable and energy-efficient’ amplifiers at ISE next month.
The new amplifiers will be part of a the fifteen year old firms new Gain Series product range, with three new releases set to be announced in Amsterdam.
According to the firm, which has offices in San Jose (HQ), Switzerland and Hong Kong, said the new Gain Series of ENERGY STAR qualified power amplifiers will provide custom installers and commercial AV integrators with flexible options for speaker amplification.
“The Gain Series is designed to give our installers several new affordable options for system amplification in various audio applications without sacrifice quality or feature set,” said Steve Kolta, product manager, Atlona.
All three models – the Gain 60 (pictured, main) Gain 120 and Gain 120NET (pictured, below) – offer low- and high-impedance outputs, RS-232 and Ethernet control, front panel metering and convection cooling. The availability of dual-impedance operation is significant as integrators and designers can manage a simplified inventory, or quickly specify the proper amplifier optimized for either program speakers or distributed speaker systems.
Our customers will also have more choices and freedom to build systems to their exacting specifications
Based upon the application, each amplifier offers specialized functions. The Gain 120 Net features an AES67 and Dante™ dual-channel audio bridge for accepting two channels over a network from a Dante or AES67-equipped DSP, as well as Atlona OmniStream™ AV encoders. The Gain 60 is ideal for certain municipal jurisdictions where high-impedance systems are limited to 24 volts. The compact Gain 60 is also UL 2043-rated for placement into plenum spaces.
Each amplifier offers both low- and high-impedance operation. The Gain 60 offers two channels of 30 watts into 4 or 8 ohms, as well as 60 watts (mono) at 24, 70, or 100 volts. Both Gain 120 models offer 60 watts into 4 or 8 ohms and 120 watts (mono) at 70 or 100 volts. Output modes are easily selected via back panel switch.
Kolta added: “With options for traditional analogue systems, audio over IP networks, and OmniStream AV over IP systems, our customers will also have more choices and freedom to build systems to their exacting specifications.”
