August 2016 – Amplifier and DSP specialist Linea Research has announced the introduction of their 8-channel 48M Series networked DSP Amplifiers.
Building on the success of the 4-channel 44M Series the 48M Series adds three models of high performance 8-channel amplification with built in DSP and networked control. With power ratings of 400W, 750W and 1250 Watts per channel 48M Series amplifiers can deliver the same rated power into 2, 4, or 8 Ohm loads or into 70/100v line systems, easily configurable on a channel by channel basis.
“This ability to individually optimize each output for different loads makes these an incredibly flexible solution,” explains Davey Smalley of Linea Research. “In an installation you could bridge a pair of channels to drive a sub, add a couple of bi-amp speakers for left and right, switch output seven into 70v mode for some ceiling speakers in the lobby and still have one channel left for a monitor send or choir fill.”
As with all Linea Research amplifiers Ethernet networking and 96kHz DSP come as standard with digital audio connectivity being provided by the built-in AES3 interface or an optional DanteTMmodule.
Available in three models the 48M03 (400W/ch), 48M06 (750W/ch) and the 48M10 (1250W/ch), Linea Research’s 48M Series will begin shipping on September 1st 2016.
