The ZoneMaster 12-channel power amplifier features multiple configuration modes and is packaged in a 2U rack-mount form factor.
Connections for 24 speakers combined with 2-ohm stability allow the use of two speakers per channel.
It’s rated at 12x50W into 8ohms and 12×90 into 4ohms. Each channel pair can be bridged to deliver 6x160W into 8ohms and 6x200W into 4ohms RMS – all channels driven.
The amplifier 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.
There are also independent 12V and audio triggers with looping trigger outputs for each zone, and a global 12V trigger.
Detachable Phoenix-style speaker connectors accept up to 12-gauge wire and the Model 1250 uses 0.5W standby power consumption to meet Energy Star and European Union specifications.
The Parasound ZoneMaster Model 1250 will be available from December.
