AudioControl is now shipping the Architect Model 2660, following its successful launch at CES 2015. This high-power architectural amplifier has been designed with industry feedback from more than 60 custom integration companies involved in designing AudioControl’s next generation of architectural, network, multi-zone and compact zone, high-performance power amplifiers exclusively for the custom residential and professional audio markets.

The features of the Architect Model 2660 are comprised of both analogue and digital inputs and include16 channels of true RMS power at 65 watts into 8 Ohms, 100 watts into 4 Ohms and designed to also be bridged as a high-power 8 channel amplifier at 175 watts per channel.
The Architect Model 2660 has been exclusively created for the residential and professional custom integrator and benefits from a high resolution S/PDIF digital audio input with an integrated Wolfson 32-192KHz, 16/24 bit depth DAC. Features include dual BUS A/B inputs that can be routed to any output, discrete 12-volt and signal sense triggers for each independent zone and AudioControl’s renowned LightDrive anti-clipping protection circuitry. In addition, AudioControl’s proprietary PFM Subsonic Filter, energy efficient design at less than ½ watt in standby as well as the loop-out ability to pass-through signals to other amplifiers and independent volume level control, by channel and zone, adds increased flexibility and custom design across every project.
The Architect Model 2660 delivers a highly efficient energy output and therefore each amplifier can be installed into the rack without the need for separate rack spaces or additional cooling requirements, therefore requiring up to 70% less rack space than traditional amplifier installations. Its front and back LED and design are focused on installation and operational efficiency for dealers and installers.
“The Architect 2660 is the latest addition to our highly successful Architect series of power amplifiers that are among the best sounding and best performing multi-zone amplifiers in the industry today,” says Alex Camara, CEO AudioControl. “The Architect Model 2660 has been an incredibly satisfying design project for our engineering teams in Seattle. Our team, with incredible input from our customers, has launched the next generation of amplifiers that increasing flexibility and powering high performance with its design features directly originating from some of the best custom integration companies in the world. The Architect Model 2660 complements perfectly our entire 2015 lineup that continues on our mission to make good sound great in everything we love to do everyday here in our design and manufacturing facilities in Seattle”.
The Architect Model 2660 is available in espresso black, which represents Seattle’s long-standing coffee heritage and comes with AudioControl’s 5-Year Warranty. The Architect Model 2660 comes ready equipped with removable rack-mounts and immediate shipping is available.
