Architect Model 210 ES (Discontinued)


AudioControl, the leader in whole-house audio amplifiers, is now shipping an ENERGY STAR® certified amplifier, the Architect Model 210ES!

This unique two-channel amplifier specially optimized for multi-room needs. The Architect Model 210 ES features fully integrated, six-band equalization specially engineered to promote optimal performance from smaller and in-wall loudspeakers typically used in multi-room systems. The Architect Model 210ES also boasts the meticulous quality and bulletproof reliability for which AudioControl’s custom-install designs are widely known.

The Architect Model 210 ES takes into account the requirements of homeowners for more energy efficient solutions that reduce heat emissions, energy consumption and allow for greater utilization of rack space.  Therefore the Architect Model 210 ES meets the stringent ENERGY STAR® 2 requirements consuming less than 1 watt during standby while not compromising on any aspect of AudioControl’s legendary amplifier performance. This unique amplification product can drive up to eight speakers (stable into 2 ohms) boasting 240 watts per channel from a two-channel distributed audio system combined with low energy usage.

“A recent study by the CEA concludes that more than 80% of consumers say that the electricity consumption of a device is key in their decision to buy electronics and AudioControl is leading the way in meeting this need through our ENERGY STAR® certification and our best in breed Architect Amplifiers”.

Like all AudioControl products, the Architect Model 210 ES is designed and manufactured at our factories in the Pacific Northwest Rainforest and is backed with our Bulletproof 5 Year Warranty.
