Great sound, flexibility and ease of use
Lab.gruppen’s innovative LUCIA (Localized Utility Compact
Intelligent Amplification) brings superior audio performance and
extraordinary flexibility to a decentralized approach in AV systems
design. Power, processing, control and I/O are conveniently placed
exactly where they are needed. In many AV applications requiring
consistent, high quality audio output, LUCIA offers a logical, costefficient and scalable solution that eliminates the complications and
added expense of a centralized equipment room for amplification,
matrixing and processing. All LUCIA amplifiers incorporate a digital,
firmware-controlled front end coupled to a robust, durable and
highly efficient Lab.gruppen output stage, all of which make it the
best sounding compact amplifier in its category.
Fast installation, reliable operation
LUCIA amplifiers install quickly and easily, with the supplied
wall-mount bracket enabling discreet on-wall placement behind
video displays. All connections are via Euroblock screw terminals,
and level setting is available on front-panel potentiometers. An
advanced protection scheme protects the amplifier and connected
loudspeakers from potential damage caused by clipping, thermal
overload, or extreme low line voltage.
▸▸ Fail-safe operation – Comprehensive short circuit, thermal, and
under-voltage protection
▸▸ Universal power supply – Operates at 100 - 240 V AC (50 or
60 Hz)
▸▸ ENERGY STAR® qualified2 – Conforms to latest specification
energy efficiency standards
Integrated mix-matrix and DSP
A versatile 4 x 4 mix-matrix and comprehensive DSP features
eliminate the need for external mixers and processors in many
applications, saving time and money. A software wizard facilitates fast
set-up, while the PC editor allows offline configuration of common
presets that can be quickly downloaded to multiple units via USB.
Green credentials
LUCIA amplifiers are ENERGY STAR qualified2, making them an ideal
choice for installation in projects seeking energy efficient certifications.
The amplifiers automatically enter standby mode after a 20 minute
period with no signal input, consuming less than 1 watt. Automatic
power-up occurs within two seconds after an input signal is sensed.
Presets available at launch for selected Tannoy loudspeakers including the industry leading
CMS Series in-ceiling systems.
Performance meets all criteria; certification pending.
