LUCIA (Localized Utility Compact Intelligent Amplification) brings enhanced audio performance and extraordinary flexibility to a decentralized approach in AV systems design. Power, processing, control and I/O are conveniently placed exactly where they are needed. In many AV applications requiring premium audio, LUCIA offers a logical, cost-efficient and scalable solution that eliminates the complications and added expense of a centralized equipment room for amplification, matrixing and processing. All LUCIA amplifiers incorporate a digital, firmware controlled front end coupled to a robust, durable and highly efficient Lab.gruppen output stage.
LUCIA amplifiers install quickly and easily, with the supplied wall-mount bracket enabling discreet on-wall placement behind video displays. All connections are via Euroblock screw terminals, and level setting is available on front-panel potentiometers. An advanced protection scheme protects the amplifier and connected loudspeakers from potential damage caused by clipping, thermal overload, or extreme low line voltage.
LUCIA amplifiers are Energy Star qualified1, making them an ideal choice for installation in projects seeking energy efficient certifications. The amplifiers automatically enter standby mode after a 20 minute period with no signal input, consuming less than 1W. Automatic power-up occurs within two seconds after an input signal is sensed.
