RAM Audio® introduces this new generation of professional touring amplifiers based on the field proven QuantaPulse™ Technology: V Series / W Series (with only aesthetic differences).
These new devices feature two or four channel models, ready for rough handling in the touring world. For this purpose, V/W Series amps implement oversized high efficiency regulated power supply with PFC front end to deliver their full performances independently of mains status.
This together with oversized high efficiency audio power stage, forced front to back cooling through a component-free path with removable front panel dust filters, improved rugged mechanical design with even weight distribution, full digital control from LCD display on the front panel… Resulting in: just power, reliability and robustness for your touring gigs!
