A perfect companion to the brand new Altitude16, and made with the most demanding users in mind, Trinnov’s new 8 channel amplifier brings intelligent power and pristine audio quality at a sensitive price point without any compromise in terms of design and build quality.
Like its big brother the Amplitude8, the Amplitude8m is designed to deliver spectacular performance in a luxury home theater but at a fraction of the price. Using the Hypex N-Core Class D output module, each of the eight channels can deliver up to 300 watts RMS at 4Ω.
The amplification stage features the industry’s lowest-distortion and noise specification and what little noise there is remains frequency independent with a Signal to Noise Ratio : >120dB referenced to full power. The importance of this trait cannot be overestimated in a theater that may have twenty or thirty speakers in a single room. If each of those speakers were producing even a small amount of noise, it would rapidly become noticeable and unacceptable. This scenario never arises with The Amplitude8m .
Trinnov amplifiers use microprocessor control for turn-on delay and feature an automatic AC power recognition and configuration system. The amplifiers not only recognize whether they are hooked up to 117V or 230V nominal power, they automatically self-configure. The Amplitude8M also incorporates a new “sleep” circuit.
The Amplitude8m incorporates a new “sleep” circuit. When the amplifier stays idle for a period of more than 10 minutes, power is removed from the output modules and a front-panel LED begins to flash. As soon as an input signal is detected again on any channel, normal playback operation resumes instantaneously.
Like the Amplitude8, the 8m features the industry's lowest-distortion and noise specifications to date. The importance of this trait cannot be overestimated in a theater that may contain twenty or thirty speakers in a single room. If each of those speakers were producing even a small amount of noise, it would rapidly become noticeable and disruptive. This scenario never arises with The Amplitude8m.
Experience audiophile-grade sound reproduction in your home theater with zero background noise during the most quiet scenes of the movie. You also get the finest sound quality and realism on music and movies alike, even at high volumes.
