Trinnov Amplitude8m

A perfect companion to the Altitude 16 and made with the most demanding users in mind, the new 8 channel amplifier from Trinnov brings intelligent power and pristine audio quality without any compromise in terms of design and build quality. Like its big brother the Amplitude8, the Amplitude8m is designed to deliver spectacular performance in a luxury home theater but at a fraction of the price. Using the Hypex N-Core Class D output module, each of the eight channels can deliver up to 300 watts RMS at 4Ω.

Distortion and noise

The importance of this trait cannot be over-estimated in a theatre that may have twenty or thirty speakers in a single room. If each of those speakers were producing even a small amount of noise, it would rapidly become noticeable and unacceptable. This scenario never arises with the Amplitude8m.

Intelligent power

Trinnov amplifiers use microprocessor control for turn-on delay and feature an automatic AC power recognition and configuration system. The amplifiers not only recognise whether they are hooked up to 117V or 230V nominal power, they automatically self-configure.

Sleep circuit

The Amplitude8m incorporates a new “sleep” circuit. When the amplifier stays idle for a period of more than 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 again on any channel, normal playback operation resumes instantaneously.
