Mackie has introduced its new M-Series line of power amplifiers. Designed to deliver high-efficiency stereo power with stellar audio performance, the M-Series is available in three configurations: the M-2000, M-3000 and M-4000, delivering 2000W, 3000W and 4000W of Class-H power, respectively, and making them the highest powered offerings in their price range.
The new Mackie M-Series amplifiers have been equipped with a host of features typically found only in much higher priced models including an ultra-reliable, high-efficiency design that utilizes two- and three-rail Class-H circuitry, as well as Mackie's proprietary Baker Clamp-based Fast Recovery circuitry to prevent harmonic distortion. M-Series amplifiers also benefit from Mackie's exclusive Adaptive Slewing technology that allows the amplifier to pass the fastest transient attacks like a kick or snare drum without the distortion associated with traditional Class H designs.
With up to 50-percent more output transistors than their competition, the Mackie M-Series amplifiers deliver increased power and better headroom, as well as resistive loading of all stages and fully complementary/differential design from input to output. The result is an amplifier with higher power and lower distortion than any other amp in its class.
To ensure that the M-Series amplifiers provide would provide faithful service in the most unforgiving conditions, Mackie engineers equipped them with the most advanced protection circuitry available, including thermal protection, output DC offset protection, input slew protection and extensive output stage protection and a robust, road-worthy steel chassis.
The new Mackie M-Series amplifiers will be available Q2 2006 and will have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $899.99, $1099.99, $1299.99 for the M2000, M3000, and M4000, respectively.
