5 CHANNEL HOME THEATER AMPLIFIER (discontinued)
Five Channels Of Power And Style!
Home theater enthusiasts can now rejoice as AudioControl, has released their new multi-channel theater amplifier, the Pantages G3. The Pantages G3 is a five-channel amplifier that incorporates a unique and highly efficient Class H design that allows it to produce 230 watts into each channel, at an 8-ohm load. Total audio output is over 1200 watts RMS! Designed as a matching companion to AudioControl’s new Maestro M9 theater pre-amp processor, the Pantages G3 incorporates a simple yet elegant design.
Utilizing a Class H design topology increases the efficiency of the Pantages G3, increases reliability, and reduces heat and unnecessary power dissipation. This design results in superior energy efficiency and is used in several other award winning AudioControl amplifiers; recipients of the CES Innovations and the Electronic House Product Of The Year awards.
The Pantages G3 incorporates AudioControl’s LightDrive Anti-Clipping Protection Circuit, which safely eliminates any possibility of speaker damaging clipping and distortion, even in extreme conditions. Audio enthusiasts can enjoy their audio systems at even the most “aggressive” levels.
In addition to pristine audio performance, the Pantages G3 sports desirable user features like balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA inputs, Remote Power Control triggers and audiophile grade, five-way binding posts to guarantee the optimum connection of speaker level signals.
Paired together with AudioControl’s legendary Maestro M9 Preamplifier the Pantages G3 is installed across many of the most ‘movie-buff’ homes around the world from leading Directors, Actors and Producers to those that just LOVE their movies whether in their theater or media space…. Test drive the AudioControl Pantages G3 and all its power today, you will not regret it!
