8 Channel High-Power Network DSP Matrix Amplifier

The Director® Model M4800 Matrix Amplifier from AudioControl is the first of its kind and one of the highest power, most flexible multi-zone amplifiers designed exclusively for the custom-install market. The Model M4800 builds upon the success of AudioControl’s The Director® Series, driving 8 channels of high-power amplification in a compact 1U chassis, delivering over 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms, 200 watts per channel at 4 ohms and 400 watts at 8 ohms bridged, all channels driven.

Featuring a powerful on-board DSP, The Director® Model M4800 has the benefit of operating either as a standalone matrix-amplifier or as part of a 3rd party control system from companies including Crestron, Savant, RTI or Control 4.

The Director® Model M4800 is designed, engineered and manufactured in Seattle, USA.
