Webster, NY (March 19, 2012)—With the introduction of the new TM-360 mixer/amplifier, Ashly Audio has entered the commercial sound electronics industry.
This is Ashly’s first product in this genre and heralds the company’s move into this growing segment of the audio marketplace. The first product in this line, the TM-360, is a 3-input 60W mixer/amplifier with the capability to automatically switch into a stand-by mode if no audio input is received for 25 minutes, thus reducing the current draw. The TM-360, along with other new products in this series will be covered by Ashly’s five-year warranty.
“Our review of the commercial sound electronics market showed a lack of innovation and quality products,” explains John Sexton, Ashly’s vice president of sales & marketing. “Many of the companies in this sector offer only a one- or three-year warranty. The energy efficient TM-360 delivers Ashly-level quality backed by our five-year warranty at a competitive price point.”
The TM-360 uses a Class-D amplifier topology. Input options include selectable mic or line level, telephone and dual RCA sum-to-mono. The transformer-isolated output offers a choice of Low-Z (4), 25V or 70V. The 230VAC International version features Low-Z, 70V or 100V output options. There are two separate zone outputs–a one-watt output for driving a remote speaker and a preamp output that can be used to drive a separate amplifier. Rear-panel dip switches allow users to select the mix going to each zone. A front-panel, 1/8-inch mini-jack makes it possible to plug-in a backup music source.
