ORIGIN ACOUSTICS FOUNDATION COLLECTION CLASS-D DISTRIBUTED AUDIO AMPLIFIER, 12-CHANNEL, 50 W AT 4 OHM
Origin Acoustics is the team that invented the architectural loudspeaker speaker category over thirty years ago. Today that same team is producing the finest in-ceiling and in-wall speakers available. These speakers represent patented, state-of-the-art technology that has resulted in unparalleled sound quality that blends seamlessly into any decor.
An amplifier should be transparent, it should literally be just wire with gain. At Origin we pride ourselves in offering no compromise amplifiers to drive our loudspeakers. Whether you require a stereo or multi-channel version, our amplifiers feature high-efficiency, Class-D power that is built to last and will reproduce every nuance of every recording.
This switching type amplifier class has incredible efficiency, above 90%, as higher power is demanded. This means substantially less heat is produced even though the amplifier is able to produce substantial power. This also means a reduction in size as smaller heat sinks are required and the electronic circuitry can be more compact and reside in a smaller chassis.
Bridging two channels into one drives almost triple the power into a single output. This feature creates greater flexibility in system design when additional power is a requirement.
Origin amplifiers can be place in a rack or inside furniture and require no direct access to function. They are turned on out of standby mode either by sensing the audio signal from a preamp or receiver or by a 12-volt signal from any number of components. They also have a 12-volt output to trigger other components as necessary.
Built-in circuits that sense both thermal overload or a short-circuit in the speaker connections, will shut down the amplifier until the temperature level returns to normal operating levels or the short in the connections is corrected. This protects the amplifier from permanent damage and avoids costly service visits and repairs.
