Powersoft announces Ottocanali 1204 8-channel amplifier

Powersoft has announced the debut of its new Ottocanali 1204 8-channel amplifier.

At only a single rack space and regular depth, it is designed for work in fixed installation applications and provides eight channels with 160W each at four ohms respectively.

Powersoft has also included optional plug-in output transformers. Specifically developed BatFormers can be inserted through a dedicated lid in the amplifier chassis, converting any, or all of the eight channels into a 70V or 100V constant voltage output providing 130W each.

Additionally, channel pairs can be mono-bridged for more power with lo-Z loads, or run in serial for higher output voltagewhen equipped with BatFormers.

“Today’s installer and designer demands more flexibility from an audio power source than ever before,” explained Claudio Lastrucci, managing director of Powersoft. “The 8-channel Ottocanali 1204 has all that – power, channels, and versatility. It was designed to match safety specs, and our technology presents the client with the additional benefits of sustaining our environment while saving cost at the same time, no matter if small or large venues. The Ottocanali 1204 definitely meets the standard for Energy Star rating, which we are in the process of qualifying for as we speak.”

Also on offer is the Ottocanali 1204 DSP+ETH, which includes DSP functionality for all eight channels, paired with Ethernet connectivity for full control and monitoring through the Armonia Pro Audio Suite PC software. On a network, the Ottocanali 1204 DSP+ETH is compatible with all other Powersoft K, M, D, Q and particularly the Duecanali Series amplifiers.

"Ottocanali and Duecanali are made to perfectly match each other," continued Lastrucci. "Together they provide a combination of products that are extremely well suited for installation applications. Optional DSP and networking features meet all requirements for sound shaping, and more importantly, for system monitoring, control, and alarm and emergency purposes as covered in IEC 60849."
