7 Channel Surround Sound Amplifier
The CNAMPX-7X200 provides 7 channels of world-class audio amplification as part of a complete Crestron Home® theater system. Brilliantly designed to complement Crestron's DAP8 7.1 surround sound processors, the CNAMPX-7X200 delivers a vigorous 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 300 watts per channel into 4 ohms.
Its massive twin toroidal power transformers feature MOH cores for maximum efficiency, with bifilar windings directing pure, continuous power to each of the seven mono amplifier channel modules. Each channel module includes its own power supply fed by a separate set of transformer windings, producing astounding dynamic range and very low distortion from every channel, all the time.
The highest grade components mounted to multi-layer FR-4 glass epoxy circuit boards help guaranty a long life of trouble free operation. With more than 300 square inches of heat sink surface area per channel, cool, quiet, and reliable operation is ensured. Gentle power-up is achieved through a "soft-start" inrush current limiting circuit. Quick-response opto-coupled output protection on each channel prevents failures caused by speaker line faults or signal spikes, providing exceptional dependability with no compromise to sound quality. In the unlikely case of a failure, Crestron's Detachable Modular Component design allows for rapid repair in the field.
Its interface to the Cresnet control network affords remote power control and monitoring of the internal temperature. Over-temperature conditions can be sensed by the control system and used to display a warning message on a touchpanel, reduce audio levels, or even activate an external cooling fan.
