Crestron is now shipping Avia multi-channel amplifiers. The new AMP-8075 and AMP-8150 are designed to work natively with Crestron Avia DSPs and have eight channels of audio power in a single rack space, with a choice of 75 or 150 Watts per channel. Each channel is individually configurable for either low-Z (4/8 ohm) or high-Z (70V or 100V) and they are networkable for configuration, monitoring and control via the Avia Audio Tool software, a Crestron control system or Crestron Fusion Cloud.
The new amps are Class D and feature front panel status indication and output meters and rear panels include balanced inputs and level adjustments. Crestron says their internal universal power supply with power factor correction ensures consistent performance with varying line voltages.
Complete system configuration is easy using their Avia Audio Tool software which is designed for drag and drop programming of channel strip objects (from the DSP and amplifier) for control and to generate a touch screen UI.
