Automatic Power On/Off
The CA2401 has a flexible power scheme with seamless and automatic power on/off based on the input signal, which reduces consumption when a signal is not present. With virtually zero configuration required, an energy smart and hassle-free amplifier system can easily be set up for hands-off operation. If the CA2401 is powered on but does not receive an input signal for 20 minutes, the system automatically enters sleep mode to reduce power consumption. As soon as the Auto Ramp circuit detects a signal, the system powers on and normal operation resumes. The amplifier can also be instantly forced into standby mode or awakened via the front panel power button.
Sublimely Simple Controls
CA2401’s controls are sublimely intuitive, allowing the operator to quickly make adjustments. The front panel power button and Master volume knob are easily accessible, enabling virtually anyone to operate the system. Bass and Treble controls are also available for fine tuning – but require a tool when making changes.
Intuitive configuration of the flexible output is provided directly adjacent to the rear panel Euroblock output connector with dip switches, which allow selection of 100 V, 70 V, 8 Ω, or 4 Ω operation. This configures both the maximum voltage of the output and the gain through the device. An individual control engages the built-in high-pass filter, which should be used on all constant voltage systems to avoid saturation on transformer-enabled loudspeakers and to help maintain sound integrity.
Expandable Remote Control
The RJ45 receptacle on the rear panel opens up a broad range of remote control options, including the CRC-V Series of wall controllers and a stylish tabletop controller, the LAB.LEVEL. All can be interconnected via inexpensive and readily-available Ethernet cabling.
Commercial installs vary widely in scope and often grow and change over time. The CA2401 is part of a family of products that provides both single and dual zone products that are perfect for building out a system to any size. With its individual zone volume and remote control capabilities, the CA2401 is an ideal building block for a dynamic and scalable system solution.
