8 Ch. 60W Amplifier for complete HEOS® audio distribution
Designed by custom integration specialists for custom integration professionals, HEOS Drive is a unique 4 zone whole home audio distribution system with 8 channels of Class D amplification, all in a 2RU single chassis.
Rated at 60 watts per channel into each of the 8 channels (20Hz~20kHz, .05% THD, 8 ohms, All Channels Driven), 1 or 2 stereo amp pairs can be bridged for single-channel high power output (130 watts), & the amplifier is designed for low impedance drive capability (4 ohms).
Each zone in this multi-room amplifier features a stereo pair of pre-amp outputs, plus each zone can be configured for stereo or mixed mono output. The matrix switching system can switch between two optical (Toslink) inputs & two coaxial (SPDIF) inputs or network for digital & four analogs (RCA) stereo inputs. Any of them can be assigned to any zone, plus every zone features a dedicated USB port for connection to an external USB drive.
Fitted to handle virtually any combination of speaker configurations, HEOS Drive features built-in DSP high pass/low pass filters - set any output to full range, subwoofer or satellite speaker modes, with adjustable crossover points.
The speaker outputs feature 4-way binding posts that are compatible with banana plug terminations, plus there are four 12V trigger outputs. The chassis features quiet fan cooling for long-term stability and operational reliability.
