CARVIN DCM200L POWER AMPLIFIER
Carvin’s DCM200L power amp incorporates a new switching power supply delivering more power with less heat and no fan. With a push of the rear impedance button, you get 100w at 8 ohms or 4 ohms. High power, uncompromising sound and maximum reliability is at its best for both touring systems and fixed installations.
The DCM200L professional amp is testimony to Carvin’s years of experience with power amplifier design and their ability to develop new concepts and embrace new technology. The switchmode power supply not only takes the weight of this amp down to a mere 108kgs (4 Lbs), but it also provides a real 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms!
The Carvin DCM200L is compatible with 120/240v AC power which means that it can be used worldwide. It also meets and exceeds every standard for professional amplification.
Carvin considers the sound of an amp equally important as its reliability. To insure pure, uncoloured sound, they have designed one of the fastest responding power amps on the market today. High slew rates deliver superb transient response. High frequencies are transparent and open—even at high levels. Linear feedback circuits reduce distortion to near the theoretical zero limit preventing any type of harshness which would lead to ear fatigue.
PRISTINE AUDIO QUALITY
The DCM200L amp delivers flat, transparent, unaltered sound—especially important to the studio user. This pristine audio quality also makes this an ideal stereo HiFi power amplifier – simply connect your favourite preamp and speakers. These amps are designed to deliver non-stop, continuous power and are completely protected from heat and short circuits.
ULTRA RUGGED FOR TOURING
Every chassis is made from heavy-duty 16 gauge aluminum that is lightweight and prevents rust. All internal cabling is neatly tied and harnessed. Heavy-duty power switches, recessed knobs & machined aluminum front panels all give the DCM200L a “tank-like” ability to handle rough, touring transport.
LIGHT WEIGHT…HEAVY DUTY PERFORMANCE
The DCM200L will use AC power efficiently with very little power wasted, this means it will function to its full capacity without using more AC power than necessary. This “green” efficiency is also a benefit when using the amp with a gas powered generator.
Generators can vary in their ability to sustain a constant AC voltage, but a DCM200L will function without a problem on a small portable generator as it can function using 90-250VAC 50-60Hz. Switchmode power supplies are also known for reducing stray magnetic fields eliminating hum & noise.
This feature is especially important for the recording industry.
BUILT FOR A LONG TIME AS WELL AS A GOOD TIME
The concert stage is the ultimate test of professional audio and for the last decade, Carvin’s DCM series amplifiers have made their mark serving top artists, concert venues and studios, night after night, year after year.
Carvin are deservedly proud of the DCM200L – a proven American made workhorse backed by over 60 years of manufacturing excellence.
