Outlaw Delivers its Most Powerful Multichannel Amplifier Yet – 7 x 300 Watts

 

 

NEW YORK (5/11/07) -- Outlaw Audio, the leading direct-to-consumer internet electronics brand, today debuted the Model 7900, the largest and most powerful multichannel power amplifier the company has ever offered. It features seven fully balanced differential amplification channels each delivering 300 watts into an 8-ohm load with all channels driven, and 450 watts into 4 ohms (20 Hz – 20kHz, 0.03% THD, all channels driven). Due to its enormous power delivering capabilities, the unit is equipped with dual power cords.

"This is an absolute behemoth of a power amplifier," comments Outlaw spokesman Scott Jackson. "With a massively overbuilt power supply, fully balanced differential topology, and current reserves that boggle the imagination, this will completely redefine the way the home theater enthusiast think of the word ‘powerful.’ The 110 pound Model 7900 is capable of turning a good soundtrack into a life-changing event – just make sure you have help putting it into your rack.”

The high-current power supply used in the Model 7900 is driven by dual custom-designed toroidal transformers with multiple windings for each channel, delivering extremely clean power with headroom to spare for even the largest dynamic transients. Each output module features 24 discrete output devices, and a total of 36,000 microfarads of filter capacitance. The amplifier is capable of delivering such a large amount of high current output that power from two separate fifteen-amp circuits is strongly recommended to allow it to deliver its full potential.

The differential design of the Model 7900 employs common-mode rejection technology to reduce crosstalk to greater than -100 dB. When the Model 7900's balanced XLR inputs are paired with a balanced preamplifier/processor such as the Outlaw Audio Model 990, the amplifier also benefits from a 6 dB improvement in gain thanks to the complementary design. Each channel of the amplifier includes a massive heat sink, eliminating the need for noisy cooling fans even when operating at rated power.

Low voltage trigger inputs are provided for seamless operation with compatible products, such as Outlaw's Model 970 and 990 preamp/processors and Model 1070 receiver. An advanced Opto-coupled protection circuit protects the amplifiers from damage without the use of fuses.

The Outlaw Model 7900 power amplifier will be available in June exclusively through the Outlaws' website at www.outlawaudio.com. The unit will carry a $3,499 introductory price, with special combo pricing available when the amplifiers are purchased in a combination package with other Outlaw components.

Privately owned Outlaw Audio designs their own line of high-performance, high-value consumer electronics products and markets them exclusively via the Internet from their www.outlawaudio.com website. The recipient of numerous major awards and "Recommended Component" ratings from major publications, Outlaw's products are widely regarded by audiophiles around the world.
