The AT52XNC Series amplifiers use Hypex N-Core Class D output modules with ATI designed input buffers and linear power supplies. The AT52XNC amps are rated at 200W RMS per channel at 8 ohms with 300W RMS at 4 ohms and are available with 2 to 8 channels.
These are the first ATI amplifiers to use micro-processor control for turn-on delay and feature automatic AC power recognition and configuration. The amplifiers not only recognize whether they are hooked up to 117V or 230V nominal power, they automatically self-configure. The amplifiers also incorporate a new and novel “sleep” circuit. When the amplifier receives no input signal for a period of 10 minutes, power is removed from the output modules and a front-panel LED begins to flash. As soon as an input signal is detected on any channel, normal playback operation resumes instantaneously. (Note: This feature is intentionally bypassed when used with the PhantomFocus System to avoid speaker/subwoofer time staggering).
Per Morris Kessler, ATI’s president and chief engineer, “We are excited to offer amplifiers with ATI’s legendary high performance and reliability in designs that reduce amplifier weight by up to 50%.”
With rated distortion below 0.05% and signal-to-noise ratio of 123 dB (minimum, referenced to rated output), each amplifier in the series is capable of playing back the full dynamic range available on today’s lossless recordings.
All ATI AT500NC Series amplifiers are covered by ATI’s 7-year transferrable warranty and are available in standard (17”) chassis. A 19” rack-mount adapter kit with handles is available for $95.00.
