Parasound launches ZoneMaster Model 1250 amplifier

The new ZoneMaster Model 1250 from Parasound is, according to the company, “the first universal amplifier to simultaneously power a high-end home theatre surround system and additional zones with independent sources.”

The12-channel power amplifier boasts high-end audio quality, high-power handling and multiple configuration modes, packaged in a versatile 2U rack-mount form factor.

Connections for 24 speakers combined with 2-ohm stability allow the use of two speakers per channel. It is rated at 12×50 watts into 8 ohms, and 12×90 into 4 ohms. Each channel pair can be bridged to deliver 6×160 watts into 8 ohms and 6×200 watts into 4 ohms RMS, all channels driven.

The unit features independent line inputs and level controls for each channel, two Bus inputs with looping outputs, plus a speaker-level input that can be routed to any zone. It also has independent 12-volt and audio triggers with looping trigger outputs for each zone, and a global 12-volt trigger.

Detachable Phoenix-style speaker connectors accept up to 12-gauge wire and the Model 1250 offers “exceptionally green” power consumption, with 0.5 watt standby power to meet Energy Star and EU specifications.

“The ZoneMaster Model 1250 is a game changer in a category populated by mediocre generic IC amplifiers,” said Parasound President Richard Schram. “The Class AB input stage and premium Class D power stage generate performance consistent with Parasound’s heritage. It is as useful for distributed audio as it is for home theatre, where it could augment an AV receiver with 3×160 plus 4×50 watts.”

The Parasound ZoneMaster Model 1250 will be available from December with an SRP of £1,995.
