‘With the available CobraNet option, the amplifier can integrate into new or existing networked audio environments in addition to conventional 70V distributed applications,’ says Brian McCormick, Chief Marketing Officer at Stewart Audio. ‘Further, our Signal Sense Power Technology makes this model extremely efficient and its compact, half-rack form factor and a weight of less than four pounds make the CVA100-2 well suited to a multitude of installed sound projects. I’m confident designers, integrators, and installers alike will find it a compelling choice.’
