AMX Ships Alero Eight-Zone Distributed Audio Power Amplifier

ALR-AMP-8_Front-Left-0914HARMAN’s AMX announced at CEDIA EXPO 2014 that it’s shipping its Alero 8 Zone Power Amplifier (ALR-AMP-8).

Whether listening to music in the living room, the kitchen or outdoors, Alero has multi-room distributed audio with 16 channels using a Class D amplifier technology that, when in standby power, it requires no external cooling sources to lower power consumption even further. And unlike linear power regulation used in Class AB amplifiers, Alero Class D amplification employs switching transistors, resulting in significantly less energy loss.

Alero’s compact 1RU chassis is interesting as most eight-zone amps are 2U. Here are the detailed specs.
