Rotel RKB-8100 V2 – Power Amplifier
Rotel’s RKB amplifiers are the result of a great deal of research into what custom installers require for today’s multizone audio configurations. They incorporate an extended feature set with rugged reliability and superb audio performance.
It’s no secret the typical long runs of speaker cable in custom installations present real challenges to amplifiers. The best way to maximise the sound quality of custom speakers is to provide them with plenty of high-quality power. Identical in terms of features to its 50 Watt per channel cousins, but with a full 8 x 100 Watts per channel, all channels driven at 8 ohms, the RKB-8100 and RKB-D8100 are Rotel’s most sophisticated and powerful custom installation amplifiers.
At only 2U height, with a dual-fan cooled chassis, four front panel trim pots, selectable power control options, a rear panel RS2323 connection and improved input linking, they are the perfect solution for higher performance multizone audio systems.
• A rear panel RS232 connection allows automation
systems to provide control and feedback. The RKB
amplifiers also include four front panel trim pots,
which allow easy level adjustment to balance zones.
• Never Turn Off – The RKB will always be on, never
go into standby. (Obviously the amplifier can be
turned off completely using the on/off button on
the front panel).
• Trigger on/off – when the RKB receives
a 12 volt trigger, it will turn on.
• NOTE – RS232 On/Off – Can also be turned
on or off via RS232 command.
• As a safety feature and regardless of mode the
amplifier will monitor its temperature. If it rises above
a determined level the fans will come on until the unit
has cooled down then return to standby operation.
• 5-way speaker binding posts
• Buffered analog audio pre-output to connect
• IEC power receptacle with detachable cord.
• 2U height takes up a minimal amount of rack space
and the RKBs can be stacked together without the
need for rack spacers to maximize rack efficiency.
