Russound’s new D-Series of multichannel digital amplifiers comprises the eight-channel D890, 12-channel D1290, and 16-channel D1675.

Designed to expand an audio system into more rooms or zones, or to add increased audio output for larger rooms or outdoor areas where higher output is required, D-Series Multichannel Digital Amplifiers’ design results in smaller chassis sizes than any previous generation of Russound amplifiers, while delivering up to 90W/channel on the D890 and D1290 models and 75W/channel in up to 16 channels in the D1675. The D890 eight-channel and D1290 12-channel models are 1U in height, while the D1675 is 2RU high.

Russound D-Series Multichannel Digital Amplifiers‘When engineering the D-Series, we wanted to deliver an amp that not only met our high standards in performance and quality, but also rethought the installation experience,’ says Russound CEO, Charlie Porritt. ‘Each of zone can be configured without any equipment – just set the switches on the back and it’s ready. This helps save installers an incredible amount of time in any multichannel amplification project. The D-Series demonstrates what amplification innovation looks like – sleek, feature-rich, and powerful – giving installers the flexibility and reliability needed to satisfy the needs of their clientele, all while keeping an acceptable project budget.’

The D-Series amplifiers include new, easily configurable audio filter options; any stereo pair, zone or bridged speaker connection on the D-Series models can be set to output three different options. Full Range Sound delivers 20Hz-20kHz to the connected loudspeaker(s). Low Pass Filter allows the connected speakers to only receive low-frequency audio signals (20Hz-160Hz) for supporting passive subwoofers. The High Pass Filter allows the zone or channel to focus on only frequencies from 80Hz and up that can clutter the room’s audio with unwanted bass or standing waves. This filter also protects the amplifier by avoiding impedance swings from loudspeakers attempting to drive lower frequencies that they are not capable of producing.

The D-Series amplifiers allow up to three different input choices for each channel. Installers can use two available bus inputs as the input for any channel or a dedicated input, allowing tailoring of a system to its needs. By combining multiple zones of audio amplification into a single chassis, any audio installation can easily grow and expand to other areas in and around the home without the need for separate amplifiers and separate audio connections for every area.

D-Series amplifiers also offer three power modes. This includes Always On, ensuring the amplifier is ready 24/7; Signal Sensing, which allows the amplifier to reduce its energy consumption to less than 0.5W when not being used but still turn on quickly; and 12V Trigger, which allows an installer to customise when the amplifier turns on and off.

The 12-channel D1290 is currently shipping, while the 16-channel D1675 and eight-channel D890 will be available later in 2024.
