Rotel C8+ Rack mount 8 channel power amp, black

Performance meets efficiency in Rotel’s C8+ Class AB Custom Installation Amplifier delivering on our 60-Year heritage of Performance, Quality and Value. The C8+ drives 8 channels of premium audio at 150 Watts per channel, all channels driven into 4-ohm speakers utilizing Rotel’s proprietary amplification technology.

The oversized in-house manufactured toroidal transformer drives thirty-two high current output transistor devices for effortless, deep, controlled bass energy. Outputs can be bridged providing 4 channels of 300 Watts per channel, capable of driving even the most demanding loudspeakers and exceptional audio clarity in critical listening zones.

For ultimate installation flexibility the C8+ includes 4 Analog, 2 Coaxial and 2 Optical (24-bit/192kHz) inputs available to all Zones through internal matrix-switching with a Priority Zone PA Override feature allowing critical announcements to be broadcasts to all Zones. The front panel display and user controls provide selection of the matrixed source input and independent volume, bass and treble settings for each zone ensuring the C8+ can be tuned to the speaker and room characteristics. Device setup is also available via the front panel for easy system configuration when mounted in remote locations.

Speaker outputs utilize detachable Phoenix connectors for pre-wire installations with secure-locking screw terminals reducing service calls. Control system integration is available via IP and RS232 interfaces and the 12-Volt trigger input offers simplified power control.

The custom engineered 2U height chassis does not require top or bottom clearance spacing for ultra-efficient rack mounting. All rack mounting hardware is included.

The C8+ is available in black only.
