Compact, powerful and cool-running are the words that best describe the new D12 and D16 multi-channel amplifiers from ELAN. The company has already started shipping the D12 Amplifier, followed by the D16 Amplifier in March 2010.
The D12 delivers 115 watts at 4 ohms into 12 channels, while the D16 delivers 75 watts at 4 ohms into 16 channels. Both these multi-channel amplifier features high-efficiency output and low-power standby with instant turn-on. For increased speaker protection, the amplifiers feature software lockable gain settings. The IR volume control application allows stand-alone use of the amplifiers.
The D12 is already available at an MSRP of $2,400, while the D16 will be available in March at an MSRP of $2,600. Both these amplifiers come with two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
