Powersoft has introduced the Ottocanali 1204 eight-channel power amplifier forfixed installation applications.

Powersoft Ottocanali 1204Occupying a single rack space, the Ottocanali 1204 offers eight 160W channels at 4Ω (80W at 8Ω). Additionally, channel pairs can be mono-bridged for more power with lo-Z loads, or run in serial for higher output voltage when equipped with BatFormers.

The amplifier has optional plug-in output transformers – specifically developed BatFormers can be inserted through a dedicated lid in the amplifier chassis, converting any one or all of thechannels into a 70V or 100V constant voltage output providing 130W each.

Using proprietary Powersoft technologies, includng a universal switch mode power supply with Power Factor Correction (PFC) and fixed-frequency class-D output stages, the design promises outstandingly low power consumption and heat dissipation and an impressively ‘green’ footprint.

‘Today’s installer and designer demands more flexibility from an audio power source than ever before,’ says Powersoft MD, Claudio Lastrucci. ‘The 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.’

Powersoft also offers the Ottocanali 1204 DSP+ETH, which includes DSP functionality for all 8 channels, paired with Ethernet connectivity for full control and monitoring through the Armonía Pro Audio Suite PC software. On a network, the Ottocanali 1204 DSP+ETH is also 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,’ adds Lastrucci. ‘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.’

Accordingly, the Ottocanali 1204 DSP+ETH offers aux inputs, sufficient GPI/O interfacing, and much required accurate signal integrity monitoring for both inputs and outputs, with low impedance loudspeakers as well as constant-voltage lines.

Designed by the Powersoft R&D Team, the Ottocanali 1204 is built exclusively in Italy with internal components selected for premium quality and proven durability. Modular subassemblies are pre-tested, with each fully assembled unit receiving a vigorous 48 hours burn-in. In addition, each unit is given a final check-out on precision test equipment before shipment.
