Russound Introduces The MIXAMP-60, For Light Commercial Audio Installations
Connected Distribution, Russound’s UK distributor of 20 years, is introducing the MIXAMP-60, an all-in-one 70V/100V mixer amplifier ideal for light commercial and resi-mercial applications. Designed to meet the diverse multi-room audio needs of restaurants, retail stores, medical offices and schools, the versatile MIXAMP-60 features a wide range of distribution inputs. As well as built-in Bluetooth connectivity, it offers an FM tuner, a USB/SD MP3 player, and the ability to connect combinations of up to four external sources and three microphones.
Many light commercial businesses require a comprehensive multi-room audio solution to broadcast ambient background music (BGM), public addresses, and paging. With the launch of the MIXAMP-60, Russound addresses those needs with a single, all-in-one solution that can quickly adapt to and accommodate changing audio input requirements. Its versatility and ease-of-use is instrumental to the product’s value because it will likely be employed by multiple users throughout the day, each with a different level of comfort with AV hardware.
Convenient front panel controls allow for precise volume level of all connected sources as well as an integrated LCD display showing currently selected audio from the built-in sources. Background Music (BGM) and Music On Hold (MOH) integration are available as well as a Telephone Paging Input. The MIXAMP-60 also provides Phantom Power for the primary microphone as well as adjustable ducking levels.
“Integrators challenged us to create a mixer amplifier that delivered versatile functionality for their light commercial clients while also being easy to install and service and provide maximum value,” says Russound CEO, Charlie Porritt. “To meet the dynamic audio needs of these environments, MIXAMP-60’s generous offering of inputs, and particularly Bluetooth compatibility, can easily accommodate a wide range of future uses.”
Mike Bonnette, Connected Distribution’s product director, adds, “Installers know that future-proofing for clients’ needs is the best way ensure long-term customer satisfaction. To meet those needs and be robust enough to adapt to future needs, the MIXAMP-60 prioritises flexibility in functionality in its design. In addition to its wide range of audio inputs, the MIXAMP-60 features a 2U rack-mountable form factor with front-facing controls that will allow installers to fit it in just about any environment.”
