Architect Model 860 DISONTINUED

Architect Model 860 DISCONTINUED
12-Channel Power Amplifier with Speaker Equalizer

The Architect Model 860 12-channel amplifier puts the functionality of the award-winning Architect Model 961 amplifier into a 12-channel chassis.  It's robust Class H power provides at least 60 watts per channel at 8 ohms, when all 12 channels are driven.  This rating grows exponentially when bridged or running low-impedence loads (down to 2 ohms).

A flexible bussing system combined with local inputs and local 12-volt triggers on each pair provides the versatility demanded by today's control systems.  Simple sliding switches easily select which bussed input each zone plays.  Local inputs can be set to override bussed inputs for seamless integration and switching.

Five bands of equalization control for each channel pair optimizes the sound to fit each zone for superior sound and performance.
