What’s better than a 500 Watt NCore based amplifier? A 500 Watt NCore based amplifier with the biggest Power-meter we could find. It’s so big we even developed a new enclosure around it. So here’s our new flagship: the IOM Classic.
High-end audio quality is guaranteed by using a premium Hypex, N-Core driven amplifier, the NC500, in combination with our custom input bufferboard featuring two OPA1611 opamps. Other opamps are optional.
The amplifier is powered by the Hypex SMPS1200A700 powersupply.
There is a balanced (XLR) input and and unbalanced (RCA) input. There is also a 12V trigger output and a 3dB gain switch.
About the meter: a very, very low ‘inpedance current measurement system’ measures the output current to the speakers. Also the output voltage is measured. Both are multiplied to get the real outputpower. This result is logarithmically displayed via a fast moving analog meter. In this way you always have a nice moving needle whatever output level you listening. The meter (and driver) is special developed for our Classic.
