APEX launches CP354 + CP704 CloudPower installation amplifiers

APEX has launched the CloudPower series of remote controllable, four channel Class-D amplifiers, built on its proprietary GlidePath direct drive architecture.

The first two models in the new series, the 4x 350W CP354 and the 4x 700W CP704, are shipping now, and will be joined by a pair of more powerful amplifiers in the near future.

All CloudPower amplifiers include signal and speaker processing tools and are designed for standalone or networked deployment in installations scaling from bars and hotels through to theatres and theme parks.

CloudPower is the first product to benefit from APEX’s GlidePath direct drive technology, which fully integrates DSP and amplifier circuits, employing DC coupling throughout the signal path to dramatically reduce time offsets and distortion.

As the name suggests, multiple CloudPower amplifiers can be monitored and controlled remotely from any device over the APEX Cloud, cutting unnecessary site visits and enabling integrators to offer value-added monitoring services. Every unit features a built-in WiFi Hotspot, allowing connection via APEX’s intuitive IntelliCloud WebUI, or through a wired Ethernet connection.

A feature of CloudPower is the inclusion of an integrated audio source, allowing streaming of background audio from devices running apps such as Spotify or AirPlay.

CP354 and CP704 are high efficiency, low idle power designs and benefit from a self-cooling airflow system that eliminates distracting fan noise.  All models are ready to serve worldwide, accommodating 100-240VAC and featuring Active Power Factor correction to ensure efficient use of mains power.

CloudPower amplifiers are designed and built in Belgium, where Dante and AVB audio networking options are in development.
