M4800 Wins Best Audio Product CES 2017

AudioControl's M4800

AudioControl’s M4800 Wins Best Audio Product CES 2017, recognized for delivering innovative functionality including a broad range of advanced features, higher performance and superlative build quality all from within an integrator-friendly, compact 1U chassis.

No other amplifier enables integrators to tailor the sound for their clients based on DSP profiles of their favorite loudspeakers obtained via an ever-expanding industry alliance with leading speaker manufacturers. The M4800 gives integrators the flexibility to finetune these unique DSP profiles by individual zones based on the acoustic properties of each environment.
All of this advanced functionality is mated to an authoritative 100 watts/8-Ohms, 200 watts/4-Ohms of output into an innovative 8×10 stereo matrix that effortlessly delivers the highest
quality entertainment programming to any zone.
