Networked Multi-Room Amplifier
Based-upon networking originally architected for recording studios, Control Alt Design created a dozen SKUs for Boston that featured lossless, bit-faithful transport and control of as many as 64 streams of uncompressed (24bit/ 96kHz) music from any room in the house to any destination in the house. The products included source units, “on-ramps” and “off-ramps” for your own gear, digital amplifiers and powered loudspeakers and they all interoperate, seamlessly. After all, every home should sound as good as Coldplay’s recording studio, no?
This product, a multi-room or multi-channel amplifier (depending) features eight channels of DSP-driven digital amplification and is rated conservatively at 75W/ channel. Because it is built around a 32 bit DSP: all equalization and adjustments are performed in the time domain without the compromises that analog signal processing introduces. Fully-mappable so that any input could be routed to any output, the MRA875 amplifier is up to the task be it 2- quad-amped, quad-wired loudspeakers, 4 stereo zones, surround sound or filling a very large room with very large music. The simple front-panel interface backed by a menu-driven operating system, making set-up a breeze.
All operational aspects of the MRA are also controllable via the network and the control point can be wireless.
