Compact, Efficient 15 Watt Stereo Amplifier for Classrooms, Lecture Halls, Conference Rooms and Boardrooms
Now shipping, the Crestron MP-AMP30 is a convenient, low cost audio amplifier for applications in which audio from source equipment is directly connected to and switched by the video projector. The MP-AMP30 amplifier drives the audio signal from these sources directly to external speakers. Ideal as a stand-alone amplifier or complementing a Crestron MPC line of controllers and wall plates, the compact and surface-mountable MP-AMP30 can be installed anywhere it’s needed. High-efficiency Class D circuitry delivers 15 watts per channel to drive one or two pairs of 8 ohm speakers or a single pair of 4 ohm speakers, supporting stereo speakers at the front of a room or mono versions in the ceiling.
Crestron MPC is a series of easy-to-install, easy-to-use systems that connect, route and control devices in small, single room applications. “We design our product lines with flexibility and scalability in mind, because we know how needs change and grow,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. “In a complete MPC solution, you can control AV, lights and other devices in the room, with SSL security an added bonus. Plus, a wide variety of wall plates enable connectivity ranging from traditional analog to HDMI and everything in-between.”
Installation and setup of the MP-AMP30 is simple, with detachable output connectors facilitating the termination of speaker wiring, and RCA inputs that connect directly to the line output of a video projector or display, audio processor, mixer, or AV switcher. Rotary controls enable adjustment of overall speaker volume as well as bass and treble. Extruded aluminum housing gives the AMP30 a professional modern appearance and dissipates heat, so there is no cooling fan or associated ambient noise.
