The new Peavey Distro ($599.99) is an exclusive, high-current power transport system for delivering energy to multi-amplifier sound reinforcement systems. The 2U rackmount unit provides up to 100 amps at 120 volts from a NEMA 14-50 plug. By dividing the current into six 15/20-amp services, each with a heavy-duty Edison socket and magnetic circuit breaker, the Distro allows users to permanently wire their amplifiers and outboard gear while providing plenty of power to run backline and front-of-house.
Because the Distro can be mounted inside a standard rack case, it allows users to run a clean, simple stage setup without the messy cable routing caused by external power supplies. The Distro also promises to reduce hum and increase ground safety by putting the entire system on the same breaker.
The Peavey Distro will be available from authorized Peavey retailers in the second quarter of 2007.
