Enhanced flexibility in 70 V installations

Combining premium audio performance with extraordinary flexibility, Lab.gruppen’s innovative LUCIA (Localized Utility Compact Intelligent Amplification) introduces a decentralized approach to AV systems design. Power, limiting, control and I/O are conveniently placed where needed, offering a cost-efficient and scalable solution that often eliminates the complications and added costs of a centralized equipment room. All LUCIA amplifiers incorporate a digital, firmware-controlled front end coupled to a robust, durable and highly efficient Lab.gruppen output stage. This model brings the inherent advantages of the LUCIA concept to a range of constant voltage applications.

Fast installation, reliable operation

LUCIA amplifiers install quickly using the supplied wall-mount bracket (for on-wall placement e.g. behind video displays, or on ceilings, or cabinet walls or under tables etc) or on rubber feet on any flat surface. Pole-mount and rack-mount brackets are available as options. All connections are detachable, and level setting is available on front-panel potentiometers as well as via GPI. An advanced protection scheme protects the amplifier and connected loudspeakers from potential damage caused by clipping, thermal overload, or extremely low line voltage. LUCIA’s built-in matrix automatically mixes the balanced and unbalanced inputs with optimized gain structure. Selection or mixing of inputs is accommodated by front panel potentiometers or by configuration of the GPI.

Integrated DSP for enhanced flexibility

All LUCIA models incorporate comprehensive DSP features, including look-ahead limiter and flexible equalization which often eliminate the need for external mixers and processors in many applications – saving time and money. A software wizard facilitates fast set-up via USB, a feature that can this reuse previous set-up files.

Green credentials

LUCIA amplifiers are ENERGY STAR qualified, making them ideal for installation in projects seeking energy efficient certifications. LUCIA amplifiers automatically enter standby mode after a 20 minute period with no signal input, consuming less than 1 watt. Automatic power-up occurs within one second after an input signal is sensed, a feature that often eliminates any need for power sequencers or controllers. If no loss of initial audio is required (e.g. for an important message), a contact closure on GPI-2 can turn on the amplifie
