UK-based company 2B Heard has introduced a new range of multi-channel amplifiers, having been appointed as exclusive UK distributor for innosonix.
The partnership means 2B Heard will offer full distribution and assist the manufacturer’s ranges of multi-channel Class-D installation amplifiers.
Since its establishment in 2009, innosonix has seen an increasing demand for high-density channel amplifiers to fulfil home automation, marine and technical acoustics, as well as 3D immersive audio applications.
The latest MAXX series offers a 32 configurable input and output channels combined with FPGA-based DSP with FIR and IIR filters, Class-D output stages, full remote monitoring, universal power supplies and input options including AES3, Dante, MADI and AES67. The range also offers web-based software.
2B Heard’s director, Dave Wooster, commented: “We’re very excited to represent these hugely innovative amplifiers from such a youthful and forward-looking company, there’s absolutely nothing else on the market of a similar nature with such unique capabilities – these amplifiers have the highest channel count that I know of. The products are ideal for any number of installation projects – environments where there are multiple rooms with varied speaker requirements such as theatres, offices, shopping centres, restaurants, museums, fitness facilities… the possibilities are endless. The MAXX series amplifiers are completely configurable with straightforward web-based control software.”
Markus Bätz, CEO of innosonix, added: “We are proud to have found such a competent partner in 2B Heard, who can help us lead the market in multi-channel 3D audio by focusing on these kind of projects. This appointment is a perfect fit with our ongoing development of multi-channel amplifiers, leading the way to ever more cost-effective and smart 3D sound systems.”
