MACKIE UNVEILS NEW M-SERIES POWER AMPS IN GERMANY
March 29, 2006 - Frankfurt, Germany- For the first time in Europe, Mackie is showing 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 are 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 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, extensive output stage protection all in a robust, road-worthy steel chassis.
The new Mackie M-Series amplifiers have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of 885 Euros ($899.99 USD), 995 Euros ($1099.99 USD), and 1,195 Euros ($1299.99 USD) for the M2000, M3000, and M4000, respectively. The complete Mackie product line, including the M-Series amplifiers are currently on display at Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, March 29-April 1. Mackie is located in Hall 4.1, stand F51.
