Mar 22, 2006 8:00 AM
Atlas Sound presented a new line of mixer amplifier products at NSCA Expo 2006. Designed from the ground up to address the needs of the commercial sound industry, these amplifiers include extensive feature sets, compact design, and are engineered for long-term reliability. The new line includes the AA35, AA120M, AA120/AA240, PA601, and CP700.
“Our team researched the market for over four years to come up with the ultimate mixer amplifier and power amplifier feature sets,” says Steve Young, vice president of marketing for Atlas Sound. “We feel confident that these new amplifiers will appeal to the majority of people who sell, design, or install commercial sound systems.”
The Atlas Sound AA35, a three-input channel mixer amplifier designed for distributed business paging and background music (BGM) systems, small-to-medium speech privacy systems, and applications where music-on-hold (MOH) plus paging is required. This 35W amplifier is priced competitively to amplifiers from other manufacturers that feature half the power of the AA35!
Looking for an amplifier to suit a large retail, commercial, or industrial paging and background music application? Look no further than the Atlas Sound AA120 amplifier. This powerful 120W amplifier was engineered with unique features to assist the contractor or installer in today’s commercial business audio environment. This six-input unit features extensive muting and output options along with a unique bridge in/out feature to allow combining of multiple amplifiers in ballroom applications without the need for external relays. VCA control is included which may be assigned to the BGM input or globally for the entire amplifier. For higher output requirements the model AA240 is available with the same preamp section as the AA120, but with a larger 240W power amp section.
Nicknamed the Swiss Army mixer amp, Atlas’ AA120M is possibly the most versatile mixer/amplifier on the market today. True three-zone matrixing (main 120W output, 1W output, and line level output), 24VDC output with relay sync to the mute buss, bridge in/out with built in relay control, one industry standard module input with direct-to-mix bus or direct-to-amp assignment, global or BGM input VCA control, and multiple mute bus configuration options round out the unit’s extensive feature set. The AA120M is ideal for applications such as sound masking, industrial paging, retail and BGM, commercial PA, priority volume control applications, and hotel ballrooms/meeting rooms.
The PA601 is the perfect choice for distributed background music (BGM) systems when the requirement is simple amplification without MOH or advanced mix functionality. The PA601 features 60W of pure power in a compact package with simple rear-mounted RCA I/O and a unique loudness contour control, which provides just the right amount of low frequency enhancement for low level listening environments.
Transformers are truly more than meets the eye with the Atlas Sound CP700. The CP700 is a professional-grade audio power amplifier, specifically designed for demanding contractor applications and features esoteric-grade torridial power supply and output transformers. These transformers were chosen for their outstanding reliability as well as extended frequency response (-3dB @ 30Hz – 70.7V output through transformer) Now, you can have the peace of mind that systems specified with the CP700 will have true transformer output isolation, a feature that previously may have not been affordable due to the cost of quality external transformers. CP700’s two independent channels are driven by separate power supplies to ensure maximum channel separation and ultra low distortion figures while providing years or faithful service. Whether your application is a large distributed constant voltage sound system or a high SPL sound reinforcement system, the Atlas sound CP700 is the perfect answer for high power/low cost amplification needs.
All models include a three-year warranty.
