Russound Launches The D1290 12 Channel, 6 Zone Amplifier
Connected Distribution, Russound’s UK distributor of 22 years, is introducing the Russound D1290 multi-channel amplifier designed for use in multi-zone, home cinema and advanced audio systems.
Building on Russound’s 55+ years’ experience in high-quality audio design, the D1290 is the first in a line of latest generation Class D amplifiers built for the most demanding of audio systems. Its 12 channels (six zones) offer 90w per channel into four ohms and 45w into eight ohms, and are also bridgeable to 180w into eight ohms, providing ultra-flexibility when it comes to powering home cinema systems.
The D1290 is the first product to show off Russound’s new industrial design concept, with its sleek brushed aluminium front panel. It is packed full of features to make installers’ lives simpler. The 1U chassis includes level trim, high pass, low pass and full range filters on each zone, plus two bus inputs and an individual input for each zone. Input and output 12v triggering is included, with on/auto/12v power options.
Mike Bonnette, Connected Distribution’s product director comments, “When we were first introduced to the new range of amplifiers by Russsound, then at concept stage, we were immediately excited by the design, the engineering and features, before we’d even heard them. Knowing the very high audio quality that Russound always delivers, the result of our first listening didn’t disappoint. These new amplifiers, starting with the D1290, will provide stunning dynamics, clarity and power for installations where these attributes are important.” He continues, “I have no doubt that Russound is on to another winner here and am sure installers and end-users alike will appreciate the quality and feature rich specifications they offer.”
The D1290 will be available in the UK from mid-February, exclusively from Connected Distribution.
