Tiny size and big performance distinguish these compact powerhouses

Sunnyvale, CA, August 2, 2001- Pragmatic Communications Systems, the leader in audio/video control and signal distribution, announced yet another innovative twist on a conventional product. Two complete ranges of high performance compact amplifiers designed for any application where high quality sound and small size are desired. The MBA (MonoBlock Amplifiers) and SAA (Stereo Audio Amplifiers) are monoblock and dual monoblock designs respectively that share advance circuitry to deliver dynamics, audiophile soundstage and clean power. All the new models provide performance in an extremely compact stereo amplifier where space is limited but the desire for high performance is not.

The MBA Series features three monoblock designs MBA 124 (24 watts), MBA136 (36 watts) and the MBA148 (48 watts) all housed in an attractively styled high-impact anodized case measuring only 2" wide, 3 ˝" high and 3" deep. The units accept any volume controlled line-level input via gold-plated phono inputs. Outputs are offered via high quality gold plated five-way binding posts. Power is supplied via 12 VDC

The SAA Series features three stereo models SAA224 (24 watts per channel), SAA236 (36 watts per channel) and the SAA245 (45 watts per channel). These complements are based on two of the monoblock designs and house in the same attractive compact case. The same advanced circuitry provides wide dynamics and clean power in a two-channel format.

Pragmatic's MBA and SAA amplifiers, part of the company's Hideaway Series, are designed for a wide range of uses including kiosks, classrooms, boardrooms or small rooms around the home or office. These unique products offer high performance for remote applications or where signals need to be transmitted over long distances.

Advanced protection circuitry guards against damage from overload, excessive temperatures or short circuits. Further, the designs run cool and need no heat sinks or vents thanks to its high efficiency amplifiers. The compact Pragmatic package delivers high fidelity performance rivaling the sound quality of large audiophile amplifiers at a fraction of the size and price.

For further flexibility in a wide array of applications, available options for both ranges include: rotary volume control, standard rack mount kit for multiple amplifiers and an in-wall version that can be fitted in a standard junction box. All models are backed by a no-nonsense two-year warranty and are available for immediate delivery.

The training will be held on Friday September 7 and Saturday September 8 at the Westin Hotel in the Boardroom, directly across the street from the Indiana Convention Center.
