Doing its best to live up to its marketing tagline, “sound that will move you,” the Hayward, Calif.-based manufacturer Earthquake Sound has recently launched its Cinenova Grande 7BR multichannel amplifier.

Earthquake’s new Cinenova Grande 7BR home theater amplifier (MSRP is $5,999) can be utilized by custom electronics professionals for 5.1 and 7.1 home theater installations to provide homeowners with a powerful and versatile amplification solution that addresses today and tomorrow’s home theater trends.

The 7BR features a monaural design that is highlighted by its modular, card-cage amp module concept. With the Cinenova Grande 7BR, dealers can configure their clients’ amplifiers to suit their individual needs simply through the implementation of the field serviceable EZXS amplifier modules.

The amp can be set up in as a stand-alone solution or it can be rack mounted, and it includes dealer-friendly features such as a choice of XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) inputs, integrated low-pass and high-pass filters and 12-volt triggers. Other features include heavy-duty, gold-plated outputs, a soft turn-on and low-current turn-on mechanism, thermal protection circuitry to protect the amplifier modules, and a built-in line conditioner.

Earthquake states the amp is rated to produce 360 watts into 8 ohms, with all-channels driven, 610 watts into 4 ohms, all-channels driven, and 810 watts into 2 ohms, all-channels driven. In addition, the company points out, that if configured in a bridge mode the amp produces 1,400 watts into an 8-ohm load.
