Integrated DSP/ 8-ch. Amplifier

Speaking of hardware, we have added the ADSP-Z8 IV-8 this year. So you can have the DSP-Z8 IV II with an on-board 8-Channel fullrange Class D Amplifier. As good looking as this product is, it’s not just a pretty face. This amplifier give you 80 Watts per channel @ 4 Ohms and 120 Watts per channel @ 2 Ohms. Zapco was the very first company to give you a full function DSP on-board with in a car audio amplifier. That was in 2004, and it was the Class AB, Reference DC (Digital Control) Series. Those amplifiers and were immediately lauded for they’re Zapco sound quality and the amazing versatility provided by the digital processor. But as AB amplifiers they were also quite large at a time when cars were becoming smaller and lighter. With the advances in Class D technology over the last 15 years we have been able to get that same Zapco sound quality into the new Z8 IV-8 in a smaller and more powerfull package. Compared to the multichannel Reference DC amp, the Z8 IV-8 will give you almost 40% more power and do it in less than 1/3 the size. With high power, graet Zapco sound quality and Z8 IV II DSP, we believe the Zapco ADSP-Z8 IV II-8 will be the dream amplifier for many audiophiles and tuners alike, and the amp of choice for anyone who wants the best of everything in a very small package. PS: The touch screen remote, the HD Player, the 196kHz iOS HD input, and all other upgrasdes coming for the Z8 IV II processor will absolutely apply to this amplifier as well. ADSP-Z8 IV-8
