Parasound Zonemaster 12


Allsidig og høyeffektiv mulitkanalsforsterker.




ZoneMaster bør være den nye standarden innen bolig- og kommersiell forsterkning.

Parasound ZoneMaster Model 12 er en allsidig høyeffektiv 12-kanals effektforsterker med super lydkvalitet og flere konfigurasjons muligheter som vil dekke behovene for de fleste installasjoner.

Et eksempel på forsterkerens fleksibilitet.
En ZoneMaster 12 kan drive en hjemmekino med 200 w per kanal for de fremre L-, C- og R-høyttalerne; 90w per kanal for surroundhøyttalerne mens de resterende 2 kanalene samtidig gir to ekstra uavhengige stereosoner med 90w per kanal ved 4 ohm. Den ubetingede stabiliteten med 2 ohm belastninger støtter tilkoblinger for to høyttalere per kanal – totalt 24 høyttalere.

* Our new ZoneMaster models are very similar in their feature sets, differing mainly in size and number of channels. Looking for fewer channels? Try the 450, or 250.
* Universal amplifier for applications from 60 to 150 watts
* Zone 1 (channel 1&2) are higher power for more demanding applications
* 24 speaker connections (A and B outputs for all 12 channels)
* High current for stable operation at 2 Ohms
* Class AB input stage plus premium Class D power stage
* Independent audio sensing triggers, one for each zone
* 6 Independent 12 volt trigger inputs, one for each zone
* Looping 12 volt trigger outputs for each zone
* Master 12 volt trigger input to turn all zones on-off
* Speaker level input for expanding systems w/out pre out jacks
* Two bus inputs can be routed to any zone
* Bus loop output jacks for passing audio to another amp
* Summed Mono mode combines L and R for single speaker applications
* Separate level controls for all twelve channels
* Detachable speaker connectors accept up to 12 gauge wire
* Short circuit and overheat protection with front panel indicators
* 0.5 watt standby power consumption meets Energy Star & EU specs
* Compact 2U chassis
