Cloud Electronics, UK-based manufacturer of high quality audio mixers, amplifiers, zoners and specialist audio distribution systems, has aligned the launch of its new cUL-approved â€œMPA Seriesâ€? of single zone mixer amplifiers with this yearâ€™s InfoComm (June 18-20, 2008), where the company will be exhibiting on stand C3460. Reaching more than 31,000 AV professionals, the Las Vegas-based exhibition, incorporating the NSCA Expo, provides the biggest and most relevant launch platform for the â€œMPA Seriesâ€? â€“ the first ever single-zone offering from the Cloud stable. The range responds to the increased demand for higher quality, mixed impedence, output amplifiers for general installer applications.
The â€œMPA Seriesâ€? is comprised of three models offering RMS power variants of 60watts (MPA60), 120watts (MPA120) and 240watts (MPA240). Each model features six line inputs with stereo summed to mono, as well as four microphone inputs into a single zone and offers high and low impedence as standard â€“ with low impedence balanced via phoenix style connectors.
To be expected from the Cloud brand, noted for its intuitive design and quality manufacture, all models in the range are controllable via front panel rotary selectors or remotely via Cloudâ€™s industry-standard, wall-mount remote controllers (RL1 and the RSL6). Quality, reliability and peace of mind are now guaranteed with a three-year warranty ensuring the MPA Seriesâ€™ place as the most flexible and reliable range of installer amplifiers in the market.
