McLelland Multizone Amplifier 6 Zone (12CH) 50W per Channel


  • $1,295.00
GST included.

The CA-1250 is, at its core, a twelve channel audio distribution amp. That can be configured for six stereo zones 4Ω/8Ω (30W/channel @ 8Ω; 50W/channel@ 4Ω); but it can also be configured for six stereo 70/100V zones (30W/channel); or three high powered bridged zones (100W @ 8Ω). By the way, the CA-1250 can be configured for any combination of stereo 4Ω/8Ω,8Ω bridged and 70/100V zones all at the same time.

Each zone can be controlled via IR or RS232 for ON/OFF, Input, Volume/Mute, Treble/ Bass and Left/Right Balance. The RS232 section is bi-directional with easy to configure command structure. CA-1250 can be configured to automatically send zone status updates or respond to queries to confirm zone status and settings. Commands for volume, treble/bass and balance can be specific values or step commands depending upon the control application.

The CA-1250 has an Audio Bus IN that can be manually selected by IR commands, RS232 commands or voltage trigger.The voltage trigger will switch a zone to the Audio Bus IN as long as there is voltage present on the zone Line/Bus Trigger IN. When the voltage is cut, the zone automatically switches back to the zone Line IN. Great for momentary switching to an audio page on the Bus IN!

Each zone has a Mute Trigger IN that will mute zone audio when a voltage is present on the Mute Trigger IN. When the voltage is cut, the zone audio output resumes.

Each zone has a 12VDC Status or Control OUT that can be used to activate a zone specific voltage controlled device or otherwise indicate zone ON/OFF status.

Each zone has a -20dB audio limiter to prevent incidental peaks from becoming irrevocable problems.

The CA-1250 features a Remote Bypass switch that allows/blocks IR and RS232 from select zones for zones that are intended to be set and not messed with.

It's rack mountable and comes with removable rack ears. The CA -1250 12 channel x 50W audio distribution amp...ready for anything...anywhere.

Please note this CA1250 requires the IR repeater, which is supplied with the AMP to operate, such as ON/OFF, volume control.
