Product Description

A professional and high-end SMPS four channel power amplifier with Class TD circuit design, is famous for its stability, high-efficiency, light weight and high power.

Class TD circuit design has the same high efficiency as digital amplifier, but with much better sound performance.

VIN16 features four channel models Ch-A, Ch-B, Ch-C and Ch-D. It can operate on three different configurations: STEREO, PARALLEL, or BRIDGE. The PARALLEL channel mode includes Ch-AB, Ch-ABC and Ch-ABCD, and the BRIDGE channel mode includes Ch-AB BRIDGE and Ch-CD BRIDGE.

VIN16 adopts carefully selected components like audiophile WIMA capacitors, RUBYCON capacitors, NEUTRIK connectors and BELDEN audio cables, etc. High voltage signal and low voltage signal are allocated separately for better performance. The power supply part is covered with steel shield. High quality materials and technology ensure very clean and clear sound and high damping factor. This makes VIN16 suitable for many different kinds of applications, from big power loudspeakers to critical monitoring where crystal clear highs are mandatory. It is widely used in concert, stadium, entertainment center and theater, etc.

A-Guard Protection System

A-Guard is AUDIOCENTER comprehensive protection system which includes optimized limiter circuit. Unlike other solutions which depend on separate circuits to address different problems, A-Guard was developed as centralized solution where all protection requirements work together in perfect harmony. A-Guard is only applied when it’s necessary to protect the amplifier. This is the reason why VIN16 amplifiers are able to sustain full power output even under complex capacitive loads.

With Intelligent Signal Limiter technology, VIN16 can operate when input the signal from 0V to 8V, by effectively limiting the signal.

VIN16 is with SMD (Surface Mounted Devices), which makes the circuitry transmission distance shortest, eliminates interference and improves audio performance. Besides, manual interference is reduced for reliability and stability.

For power supply part, AUDIOCENTER uses high-efficient power supply with PFC (Power Factor Correction) without any compromise on cost. This decreases electric current for power supply circuitry and eliminates harmful harmonic current, which can meet the electric industry requirement for power factor in Europe and America. It is an innovation in professional amplifier field.

VIN16 adopts terminal feedback technology and multi-point network absorption circuitry developed by AUDIOCENTER, which makes the damping factor up to above 2000. This makes it easy to drive 18” or 21” subwoofer with natural and dynamic sound.
