NAD CI 16-60 DSP 16-Channel Rack-Mounted Amp Launched
NAD has launched the CI 16-60 DSP multi-channel amplifier for distributed audio.
The NAD Electronics CI 16-60 DSP amplifier boasts 60 watts for each of its 16 channels at 8 ohms. Furthermore, each pair of channels is bridgeable to 140 watts per channel if more power is needed with the hybrid digital amplifier platform delivering stable and efficient power with high current capability.
The 2U rack space CI 16-60 DSP uses a customised version of the proven Hypex UcD output stage. We're told that this delivers great load invariant power with extremely low distortion and noise in the audible range. As this unit has been designed to deal with the custom installation world's demands, the CI 16-60 can effortlessly handle long cable runs and difficult speaker loads.
NAD Electronic's CI 16-60 DSP is an IP-controlled amplifier so the installer can configure and calibrate it via a web-based user interface. Here they can access multi-channel digital signal processing (DSP) and precise equalisation control. A virtual patch bay permits any input to be routed to any, or multiple, outputs without creating physical connections.
Additionally, the UI offers insight into temperature and power status, along with essential troubleshooting functions like power cycling, factory resetting and updating.
Finally, the CI 16-60 also sports loop through jacks on all the inputs, making it easy to daisy chain sources to multiple amplifiers for larger installations.
The NAD CI 16-60 will be available from mid-February. The US MSRP is $2,499.
