Russound introduces the A2100 digital amplifier
Connected Distribution, the Russound UK distributor, is now shipping the A2100 digital amplifier to add high quality, high powered, stereo amplification to any audio system.
Compact in form, but boasting 100w per channel, the A2100 is perfect for adding extra power where needed, or to facilitate the use of additional speakers for large rooms or outdoor zones. The space-saving half-rack size design allows for an easy fit in any equipment rack, and with its installer-friendly integration features, such as signal-sensing power on, the A2100 blends seamlessly into any system and activates automatically with the other devices as needed.
Designed to be stable to 4-ohms, the A2100 can safely be used with two pairs of 8-ohm speakers, or it can be bridged into mono mode with 225 watts output (8-ohm). Buffered line outputs enable multiple A2100 amplifiers to be daisy-chained, permitting almost limitless extension of the audio chain. Flexibility of installation, through numerous connection permutations, makes the A2100 the perfect add-on amplifier for use with multi-room systems. For example, used with a Russound MCA-88X controller amplifier, a single A2100 can power one of the two line level zone outputs of the MCA-88X, with another two A2100s working in bridged mode to power larger speakers in another line level zone. Fine-tuning of the output volume can be adjusted using the rear panel gain control to match the volume to the other speakers in the room.
As a specialist custom installation amplifier, the A2100 features several power-on options - always on, signal-sensing or 12v trigger – to enable it to be integrated into many different scenarios. In always on mode, the A2100 uses just 0.5 watts of power. A 12v trigger output can also be used to control other devices, such as the additional daisy-chained or bridged A2100s. A comprehensive mounting kit is included in the box, which permits single or double unit rack mounting of the 1U high enclosure, or the rack brackets can be used to wall mount the product.
Mike Bonnette, product director for Connected Distribution, says, “Russound has a proud pedigree in quality audio reproduction, having been founded 50 years ago as a hi-fi company. This gives products like the A2100 a significant audio quality advantage over many other products, while retaining the excellent value proposition that the company is famed for.” He continues, “The new amplifier is sure to find many fans in the custom installation sector and the admiration of the quality conscious end-user.”
