NAD is excited to launch the CI 16-60 DSP Amplifier, an all-new advanced distribution amplifier for the demands of professional installations, combining classic NAD performance, rock-solid reliability, installer-friendly features and exceptional value. Delivering a conservative 60 watts per channel at 8 ohms into all of its 16 channels, each pair of channels is bridgeable to 140 watts per channel if more power is desired. The CI 16-60 has an MSRP of $2,499, is available now to order and will begin shipping mid-February.
The hybrid digital amplifier platform delivers stable and efficient power with high current capability all in a 2U rack space. The CI 16-60 DSP uses a customized version of the proven Hypex UcD output stage to deliver great load invariant power with extremely low distortion and noise in the audible range. Every detail of this design has been carefully executed to wring out the best possible performance. Designed to deal with the demands of the custom installation world, the CI 16-60 can effortlessly handle long cable runs and difficult speaker loads.
The CI 16-60 DSP is an IP-controlled amplifier allowing installers to configure and calibrate via a web-based user interface. The user interface offers access to multi-channel digital signal processing (DSP) providing detailed equalisation control. A virtual patch bay permits any input to be routed to any, or multiple outputs without the need to create physical connections. In addition, the UI offers insight into temperature and power status, as well as basic troubleshooting functions like power cycling, factory resetting and updating. Rounding out the CI 16-60ís impressive feature set are loop through jacks on all the inputs making it easy to daisy chain sources to multiple amplifiers for larger installations.
