The Director® Model M4800 Matrix Amplifier from AudioControl is the first of its kind and one of the highest power, most flexible multi-zone amplifiers designed exclusively for the custom-install market. The Model M4800 builds upon the success of AudioControl’s The Director® Series, driving 8 channels of high-power amplification in a compact 1U chassis, delivering over 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms, 200 watts per channel at 4 ohms and 400 watts at 8 ohms bridged, all channels driven.
Featuring a powerful on-board DSP, The Director® Model M4800 has the benefit of operating either as a standalone matrix-amplifier or as part of a 3rd party control system from companies including Crestron, Savant, RTI or Control 4.
The Director® Model M4800 is available in brushed silver or espresso black anodized finish and is designed, engineered and manufactured in Seattle, USA.
The Model M4800 features on-board digital signal processing, graphic & parametric equalization by zone, network monitoring and programming, digital and analog inputs, plus the addition of volume control, channel/zone grouping and zone audio presets. It also allows individual channel and zone selection via standard TCP/IP, delivering incredible power and AudioControl’s legendary audio performance.
Two digital Optical TOSLINK inputs plus two coax outputs are both accessible in the matrixing so that any one of the input sources can be routed through the digital outputs. These digital outputs can be connected to Director M or D series digital inputs so that multiple amplifiers can receive any signal from any of the inputs.
AudioControl has partnered with a growing number of prominent architectural loudspeaker manufacturers to implement speaker performance profiles directly accessible from The Director® M Series onboard DSP. Each speaker manufacturer has provided critical performance data to AudioControl, enabling tailored profiles to be created and stored in software form. Factoring in the individual room acoustics for each home, these speaker profiles achieve an important step in providing the custom integrator the tools to deliver a premium entertainment experience by calibrating systems for their clients.
