The single-rackspace SRA-120 (10 inches deep, weighs 20 pounds) professional stereo amplifier is suitable for full-range applications, such as small control room monitor systems or as a headphone distribution amp, as well as driving the high end of a bi-amplification sound system setup.

The amplifier will deliver 60 watts per channel into 4 ohms stereo; 45 watts per channel into 8 ohms stereo; or 120 watts total into 8 ohms mono-bridged. The amplifier design is based on Class-A voltage amplifier stages with a complementary bipolar output section for low distortion and excellent overload behavior. Features include turn-on delay circuitry and instantaneous turn off to eliminate any transients to the speaker. Each channel will also independently turn off its output if an overheated condition occurs.

The SRA-120 features rear panel switches to select between two choices of input sensitivity, stereo or mono operation, or normal or bridged mode. Rear panel input connections may be made via 1/4-inch balanced phone jacks or barrier strips with ground lift provision. Level attenuators for each channel are provided on the front panel, along with a stereo headphone jack. Status LEDs on each channel include signal present, clip alert and "protect-mode" indication.

In other company news, Ashly Audio, an Inconcert platinum-level partner with AMX Corporation, announced that the Protea Series Digital Processors and he VCM-88 are now AMX NetLinx-compatible. NetLinx modules for the 4.24C Digital Crossover/Equalizer/System Processor; 4.24D Distribution System Processor; 4.24G, 4.24GS and 2.24GS Graphic Equalizer/System Processor; 4.24PS and 2.24PS Parametric Equalizer/System Processor; and the VCM-88 VCA Matrixing Level Controller are now available for download from the AMX Website.

Jim Stachowski, director of marketing for Ashly Audio, stated, "Our dealers, integrators and installers demanded our products to be AMX-controllable and we responded to their needs. By making our digital processors part of the Inconcert Program, our customers can now benefit from the ease of use and time-saving features made available from AMX with one-touch control automation.”

RS232 is used as the control method for operating the processors. Functions controlled for all Protea products include preset/scene recall, all level controls and muting. VCM-88 functions controlled include individual level control of channels 1 through 8, master level and muting. The system installer simply uploads the code block into the AMX NetLinx controller for one-touch A/V control automation.
