AudioControl is now shipping three CM Series amplifiers. AudioControl will showcase their full lineup of multizone entertainment and cinema products at the 2022 ISE show in Barcelona at the Fira Barcelona — Gran Via from May 10-13, stand 2Q400.
The AudioControl CM Series amplifiers utilize a highly sophisticated Constant Power Mode architecture featuring GaN (Gallium Nitride) semiconductors — a groundbreaking circuit engineered by AudioControl to deliver more output power, greater efficiency and superb sound quality — far surpassing the performance of conventional 70-volt solutions. CM Series amplifiers complement AudioControl’s 4/8-Ohm Architect and Director Series amplifiers.
CM Series amplifiers feature optional Dante digital audio networking capability (Dante option available beginning Q1, 2022) along with the flexibility of both 70-volt and 4/8-Ohm (Dual-Mode) compatibility. These ultimate-performance amplifiers are ideally suited for commercial and residential AV installations, delivering best-in-class audio performance, legendary build quality, channel matrixing and a DSP engine that is second to none. The features and performance of CM Series amplifiers enable integrators to precisely tailor the sound by zone to any environment — from houses of worship, boardrooms, hospitality, collaboration suites and more. CM Series amplifiers are compatible with popular smart home platforms such as Crestron, RTi and Control4, enabling control of Dante signal routing as well as volume up/down and power on/off by zone. There are three available channel configurations for the CM Series amplifiers:
- CM4-750 — Four-Channel high-power Dual-Mode DSP-enabled amplifier
- CM3-750 — Three-Channel high-power Dual-Mode DSP-enabled amplifier
- CM2-750 — Two-Channel high-power Dual-Mode DSP-enabled amplifier
Each CM Series amplifier utilizes Constant Power Mode architecture that delivers 750 watts per channel in 70-volt mode or 625 watts per channel at 8, 6 or 4 ohms along with stability into 2 ohms. CM Series amplifiers also deliver 1500 watts bridged in 100-volt mode and 1250-watts bridged into an 8-ohm load. The CM Series Dual-Mode design can simultaneously operate in 70-volt mode while also driving a conventional loudspeaker. Each model offers eight analog inputs (two analog inputs can be set to accommodate a microphone) plus two digital audio inputs (coax and optical). The amplified outputs of each CM Series model can be individually controlled as mono outputs or controlled as stereo pairs.
