You can write your own puns about the new Atlona Gain Series of wired and networked amplifiers that the networked audio manufacturer will unveil at ISE 2018 (e.g. The industry gains a new line of amplifiers.) We’re not going to do it.
Atlona says the Gain Series amplifiers are compact, affordable and ENERGY STAR qualified. They’re available in three models:
- Gain 60 (AT-GAIN-60)
- Gain 120 (AT-GAIN-120)
- Gain 120NET (AT-GAIN-120NET)
According to an Atlona press release, all three Gain Series networked amplifiers 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, the manufacturer adds in a press release.
More from Atlona’s Gain Series press release:
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 asAtlona 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.
“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,” says Steve Kolta, product manager, Atlona.
“With options for traditional analog 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.”
