AudioControl D-Series Amps Produce 100 Watts of Power

New AudioControl D-Series of amplifiers feature DSP processing and onboard digital profiles of popular speakers brands.


Among the new products in its exhibit (booth 5-R115) at ISE 2018, AudioControl will showcase its new D-Series amplifiers. 

Designed for whole-house audio applications, the newly introduced D-Series of amplifiers from AudioControl include the 8-channel D2800 and the 16-channel D4600 products. Both amplifiers are designed to provide professional integrators with a choice of fully featured amplification solutions that meet a variety of homeowner and system needs. 

AudioControl states the new D-Series line of amplifiers utilizes technologies from its M-Series line of products to provide digital signal processing (DSP) and onboard digital profiles of the custom installation industry's most popular architectural loudspeakers. According to AudioControl, these onboard profiles were developed in conjunction with those speaker companies' engineers to ensure the highest levels of integration and performance.

As part of its Sound Partners program, AudioControl works with speaker companies to develop these speaker profiles, and authorized professional dealers can fine tune these profiles by individual zones based on the acoustical environments of each room. 

Through the D-Series inclusion of built-in DSP engines integrators can employ tools such as graphic and parametric equalizers per zone, and they can program and monitor the amps remotely. 

The D-Series line of amplifiers is only available to authorized dealers, and it offers the amps in a choice of black espresso or brushed aluminum finishes.  Like other AudioControl products, the D-Series amplifiers are manufactured in the U.S., and they are backed with 5-year warranties. 

Both AudioControl D-Series amplifiers will be available during the first quarter of 2018.

In addition to the D-Series, AudioControl will also show its Director M4840 whole-house amplifier. The Director M4840 is more than 30 percent shallower than most rack-mount amplifiers, and it also offers DSP options such as the same speaker profiles included in the D-Series amps. The Director Model M4840 produces 100 watts into 8 ohms, and 200 watts into 4 ohms. 

On the home theater side of the audio market, AudioControl is showing Maestro M5 Home Theater Surround Processor. 

AudioControl says integrators can pair the Maestro M5 wih its Savoy G3 and Pantages G3 home theater amplifiers to deliver state-of-the-art home theater that includes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-based surround sound processing options.
