What is it?An multi-channel power amplifier for fixed installations. DetailsThe single rack space Ottocanali 1204 offers eights channels, each capable of delivering 160W into 4 ohms (80W into 8 ohms). The design also accommodates optional plug-in output transformers – or ‘BatFormers’ – which can be inserted through a dedicated lid in the amplifier chassis, converting any (or all) of the eights channels to 70V or 100V constant voltage operation at outputs of 130W each. Additionally, channel pairs can be mono-bridged for greater power with lo-Z loads, or run in serial for higher output voltage when equipped with BatFormers. Incorporating a range of existing Powersoft technologies such as universal switch mode power supply including Power Factor Correction and fixed-frequency Class-D output stages, the Ottocanali 1204 is said to combine enhanced reliability and sound quality with exceptionally low power consumption and heat dissipation, meeting current Energy Star rating standards. Also available is the Ottocanali 1204 DSP+ETH model which includes DSP functionality for all 8 channels, paired with Ethernet connectivity for full control and monitoring through Armonía Pro Audio Suite software. On a network, the 1204 DSP+ETH is compatible with all other Powersoft K, M, D, Q and Duecanali Series amplifiers.
