The 168D 8-channel 160-watt power amplifier is part of the Internet of Things- (IoT) enabled, professional-grade amplifier DANTE CONNECT SERIES. Perfectly suited for small to medium-scale installations, this eight-channel amp features direct HiZ (70V or 100V) or LoZ selectable by channel. With three ways to connect, you can engage the built-in Wi-Fi access point, connect to the venue’s Wi-Fi, or use the FAST Ethernet to connect to any local area network via Cat5 or Cat6 cable. Cloud connectivity is a popular feature. Harness the power of the Cloud for remote control, monitoring, notifications, and more from any of your devices. Just connect your amp to a network and start commanding your systems. Analog inputs, Dante inputs, and external I/O control are also featured for remote powering and fault monitoring.
