AudioControl has updated their multizone Architect amplifiers lineup with better energy efficiency, more power, and Ethernet options for remote monitoring and network control.

The series also gets a 16-channel amplifier that does not offer optional EQ controls, said CEO Alex Camara.

Last month, the company launched a multizone 16x100-watt matrix-switching amplifier and a compact amplifier/DAC, which can be used in Sonos wireless multi-room audio systems.

“This is part of a complete update to the Architect lineup,” said Camara. The new Architect amplifiers come in four primary models:

--Architect 1680 EQ 16x65-watt (into 8-ohm load) amplifier with speaker equalization at $3,400;

--Architect 1660 16x65-watt amplifier without speaker equalization at $2,950;

--Architect 1280 EQ 12x65-watt amplifier with speaker equalization at $2,650; and

--Architect 1260 12x65-watt amplifier without speaker equalization at $2,100.

Output ratings are with all channels driven. All amps also deliver higher output into lower impedance and come with five-year warranty.

All also feature bussable inputs, LightDrive anti-clipping circuitry, mono switching, and 1-watt standby mode.

I'll take one of each, please. How about you?
