Sonora, CA â€“ April 2011â€¦ Stewart Audio, manufacturer of the finest quality American-made power amplifiers and audio equipment for a wide range of sound reinforcement applications, is pleased to announce the AV100 power amplifier. As the companyâ€™s latest addition to its line of versatile power amplifiers, the new AV100 makes a great choice for driving both subwoofers and full range loudspeakers. The AV100 is designed and built to meet the rigorous demands of commercial and residential integrators in addition to being a great choice for musicians looking for high quality audio performance.
The AV100â€™s competitive pricing, lightweight design, and its convection cooling (no noisy fans) give this AB Class power amplifier unparalleled fidelity for a multitude of applications, including installation in boardrooms, classrooms, AV projection systems, audio/video production suites, project studios, and broadcast environments to name but a few. Further, it is an excellent choice for fixed installations with amplifiers located in the listening environment and, with the available pole and universal mounting brackets, the AV100 can be pole mounted, attached behind flat panel displays, recessed in lecterns, and placed in countless other locations.
With its compact, half rack form factor that enables the AV100 to reside wherever space is at a premium, this 100W monaural amplifier is optimized to drive 4- and 8-Ohm loads and, with the inclusion of a Low Pass filter, is well suited for driving subwoofers. The AV100 also uses an ultra-efficient switch mode power supply for its conversion of electrical power. The AV100 provides a push button switch to toggle between Full Range (30 Hz â€“ 20 kHz) and Subwoofer (30 Hz - 150 Hz) modes and provides LEDs for visual confirmation of Power and Clipping. The rear panel provides RCA- and banana plug-type connectors.
