Parasound 12-channel ZoneMaster 1250 amp for multiroom and home theatre

Parasound has launched the ZoneMaster 1250, a powerful 12-channel amplifier for multi-room audio and modular home cinema systems. Versatile and bridgeable, the amplifier combines a Class AB input stage and Class D power stage, all in a compact 2U chassis.Utilising six independent power supplies, the ZoneMaster 1250 will drive 50w into 8 ohms, or 90w into 4 ohms, across all channels. Channel pairs can be bridged to provide 6 x 160w or 6 x 200w with 8 or 4 ohm speakers respectively. Parasound says the unit has the potential to bi-amp speakers with up to 400w per speaker. Typicall installs might see the ZoneMaster 1250 drive three stereo systems, rated at 200w per channel, six stereo zones, or 24 in-wall or ceiling speakers. It might also be deployed in a home cinema, to drive a full compliment of immersive home theatre speakers. The distributor believes there's growing demand for multichannel amps as Dolby Atmos gains favour with integrators.The ZoneMaster 1250 features independent line inputs and level controls for each channel and two Bus inputs with looping outputs, plus a speaker-level input which can be routed to any zone. There are also independent 12-volt and audio triggers with looping 12-volt trigger outputs for each zone, as well as a global 12-volt trigger. Detachable Phoenix-style speaker connectors accept up to 12-gauge wire. When it comes to power consumption, it complies Energy Star and European Union specifications.Mike Bonnette, Multi-Room's director said "In terms of sound quality, build quality and configuration options, the ZoneMaster Model 1250 is a game-changer in a category populated by cheaply built IC chip amplifiers,""It's as useful for distributed audio as it is for home cinema, where it could augment an AV receiver with 3 x 200 watts plus 4 x 90 watts or as a terrific single-chassis amplifier solution for Dolby Atmos installations."
