AudioControl announces multi-zone matrix-amplifier, The Director Model M6400

Designer and manufacturer of distributed audio processors and amplification solutions, AudioControl, announced the first shipments of their new high power matrixing amplifier with DSP control, The Director Model M6400.

The Director Model M6400

The Director Model M6400, part of AudioControl’s new Matrix M-Series, drives sixteen channels of high-power amplification in a 2U chassis that delivers 65 watts per channel at 8 Ohms, 100 watts per channel at 4 Ohms and 175 watts at 8 Ohm bridged, all channels driven.

Features of The Director Model M6400 include:

  • on-board digital signal processing
  • graphic and parametric equalization by zone
  • network monitoring and programming
  • volume control
  • channel/zone grouping
  • zone audio presets
  • individual channel and zone selection via standard TCIP

The matrixing capabilities of the Director M series allow any of eight analog or two digital inputs to be routed to any amplified zone output. The M6400 includes two digital SPDIF inputs plus two SPDIF outputs that are included in the matrixing, allowing any one of the input sources can be routed through the digital outputs. These digital outputs can be connected to Director M series digital inputs so that multiple amplifiers can receive any signal from any inputs from any of the amplifiers.

The M6400 can operate as a standalone matrix-amplifier or as part of a third party control systems from companies like Savant.

It is available in brushed stainless steel or black finish. It comes with AudioControl’s 5-year warranty and is available now.
