AudioControl CM Series amplifiers utilize a highly sophisticated constant power mode architecture with GaN (Gallium Nitride) semiconductors – a revolutionary circuit designed by AudioControl to deliver more power output, greater efficiency and superb sound quality – far exceeding the performance of conventional 70-volt solutions. CM Series amplifiers are the perfect complement to AudioControl’s best-in-class 4/8 Ohm Architect and Director Series amplifiers, designed as the ultimate solution for professional integrators.

“The performance we’ve been able to achieve from the CM Series 70-Volt amplifier platform is nothing short of amazing,” explained Alex Camara, CEO of AudioControl. “These amplifiers have redefined the value proposition for integrators looking to provide the best solutions in a wide range of projects. We are delighted to be able to present these amplifiers to attendees at ISE in Barcelona.

CM Series amplifiers offer optional Dante digital audio networking capability (Dante option available Q1 2022) along with the flexibility of 70 volt and 4/8 ohm (dual mode) compatibility. These ultimate performance amplifiers are perfectly suited for both commercial and residential AV installations, offering best-in-class audio performance, legendary build quality, channel matrixing and a powerful and intuitive DSP engine that is second to none. The features and performance of the CM Series amplifiers allow integrators to precisely match sound by zone to any environment, from houses of worship (opens in a new tab), conference rooms, hospitality, collaboration suites, and more. CM Series amplifiers are compatible with popular smart home platforms such as Crestron, RTi and Control4, allowing control of Dante signal routing as well as volume up/down and power on/off by area. There are three channel configurations available for CM Series amplifiers:

  • CM4-750 — 4 Channel High Power Dual Mode DSP Compatible Amplifier
  • CM3-750 — 3 Channel High Power Dual Mode DSP Compatible Amplifier
  • CM2-750 — 2 Channel High Power Dual Mode DSP Compatible Amplifier

A powerful story

Each CM Series amplifier uses a highly sophisticated constant power mode architecture that delivers 750 watts per channel in 70 volt mode or 625 watts per channel at 8, 6 or 4 ohms with 2 ohm stability. CM Series amplifiers also provide 1500 watts bridged in 100 volt mode and 1250 watts bridged into an 8 ohm load. The CM Series’ dual-mode design can simultaneously operate in 70-volt mode while driving a conventional loudspeaker. Each model offers eight analog inputs (two analog inputs can be configured to accommodate a microphone) plus two digital audio inputs (coaxial and optical). The amplified outputs of each CM Series model can be controlled individually as mono outputs or controlled as stereo pairs, giving integrators the system configuration flexibility they need to fit any architecture of system.
