ALC1000 Monoblock amplifierAnaheim, CA (January 14, 2010)—At NAMM, Abletec USA has introduced its new ALC Series which intregrates advanced Class D power amplifiers with its ZVS (Zero Voltage Switching) power supplies.
“Our customers have been asking for complete power modules,” says Rich Spina, President of Abletec USA, “so our engineers developed this new technology, including patent pending Adaptive Pole Control (APC), to deliver Class AB audio performance with the efficiencies of Class D.” The ALC Series transforms wall outlet AC into high power audio with reportedly better than 85% efficiency. Overcurrent, overvoltage and overtemperature protection are built in, along with auxiliary power supplies and balanced analog inputs.
Six watts of auxiliary power is available for front end electronics, they have an Energy Star compliant standby mode that consumes less than 1 watt, and have undergone RoHS, FCC and EU approvals.
The ALC Series currently includes the following models (except as noted, power ratings are <1% THD into 4 Ohm loads, with a 6 dB crest factor):
ALC0180 – 2x 90 W stereo
ALC0200 – 2x 40W & 1x 120W (6 Ohms) 2.1 system
ALC0240 — 2x 120 W stereo
ALC0300 – 300W fullrange monoblock
ALC0600 — 2x 300W stereo
ALC1000 — 1000W fullrange monoblock
