Zone Amplifier / Streamer
Whole home multi-zone amplifier in one single chassis.
Engineered by custom integration specialists for custom integration professionals, HEOS Drive is a unique 4 zone whole home audio distribution system with a Class D, 8 channel amplifier, all in a 2RU single tall chassis that includes both Dolby Digital & Dolby Digital+ decoding with stereo down-mixing.
Rated at 60 watts per channel into each of the 8 channels (20Hz~20kHz, .05% THD, 8 ohms, All Channels Driven), 1 or 2 stereo amp pairs can be bridged for single channel high power output (130 watts), & the amplifier is designed for low impedance drive capability (4 ohms).
Each zone in this multi-room amplifier features a stereo pair of pre-amp outputs, plus each zone can be configured for stereo or mixed mono output. The matrix switching system can switch between two optical (toslink) inputs & two coaxial (SPDIF) inputs or network for digital & four analog (RCA) stereo inputs. Any of them can be assigned to any zone, plus every zone features a dedicated USB port for connection to an external USB drive.
Fitted to handle virtually any combination of speaker configurations, HEOS Drive features built-in DSP high pass/low pass filters - set any output to full range, subwoofer or satellite speaker modes, with adjustable crossover points.
The speaker outputs feature 4-way binding posts that are compatible with banana plug terminations, plus there are four 12V trigger outputs. The chassis features quiet fan cooling for long term stability and operational reliability.
