By |


Crestron-C2N-AMP-6X100.jpgCrestron is now shipping a new multi-zone amplifier, the C2N-AMP-6X100. This six-zone/12-input amp offers 100 watts for each of the six zones, and outputs can be bridged for additional power to a certain zone. It also includes a total of four line-level outputs and preamp-style controls for each source.

From Crestron
Crestron announced today that the new six-zone "Plus Two" amplifier (C2N-AMP-6X100) is now shipping. Designed specifically for mid-size systems, the C2N-AMP-6X100 combines features from the CNX-PAD8 and Adagio Audio Expander (AAE) to deliver an amazingly flexible solution for whole-home audio distribution. With 12 inputs, four stereo-line outputs, Ethernet connectivity, and preamp controls, the C2N-AMP-6X100 rounds out the Crestron family of power amplifiers, ensuring integrators have a full range of high-performance solutions for every system design.

Plenty of Power
Each room output on the C2N-AMP-6X100 is capable of 100 watts for each of the six amplified zones. That's 50 watts per channel at eight ohms or 75 watts per channel at four ohms--perfect for driving a house full of Crestron speakers. Outputs also may be bridged to deliver a robust 150 watts per channel at eight ohms to drive an in-wall subwoofer or for increased stereo power.

Preamp Controls
Two line-level outputs mirror amplified channels five and six, enabling additional amplification, such as powered subwoofers, to boost performance in large or open spaces. Listeners can select any of the 12 sources from any room in the house and tailor the sound to individual tastes using independent preamp style controls for volume, bass, treble, balance, loudness, mute, and mono settings.

"Plus Two" Auxiliary Zones
In addition to its six amplified room outputs, the C2N-AMP-6X100 also includes two independent line-level outputs to support additional rooms for a total of eight. Each auxiliary output provides a stereo line-level connection with independent controls, providing a perfect solution for integrating surround sound rooms and outdoor spaces into whole-home audio systems.

To expand the system, up to three additional units may be added to support a total of 24 amplified rooms, plus up to eight auxiliary zone outputs. The C2N-AMP-6X100 provides the flexibility to integrate with a complete Crestron audio distribution system through the available Ethernet port or via Cresnet.
