Martin Audio Releases Ma5.0Q Amplifier

Equally versatile in both portable and installed system configurations, and with its four channels delivering up to 5,000W, neatly packed into 1 RU weighing just over 7kg/16lb, Martin Audio’s new MA5.0Q is a flexible, cost-effective solution for small to medium sound systems.

Benefiting from core technologies found in Martin Audio’s flagship amplifiers, the MA5.0Q sets a class standard in efficiency, leading to low power consumption and consequently to substantial cost savings on electricity, all in an eco-friendly way.

Minimum heat dissipation makes the MA5.0Q suitable for hot or otherwise challenging environments. Delivering fantastic sound quality, due to its unique, patented Class D output stage design, the MA5.0Q represents high value, practically as well as commercially.

The MA5.0Q delivers a number of key features. These include four channels in 1 RU at 358mm/14.1’’ depth, minimal ‘carbon footprint’ and operational cost of electricity, more Watts for less weight (up to 5,000W in 7.3kg/16lb), switch mode power supply internally switchable 230/115V nominal, fixed frequency switch mode amplifier output stages, patented amplifier output filters with ripple cancellation network, Optimised for 4Ω loads thus ideally matching real-world scenarios in targeted applications, AC protection (shuts down power supply when AC mains voltage is outside operating range), clip limiter (prevents severely clipped waveforms from reaching loudspeakers, while still maintaining full peak power output), short circuit protection (protects the amplifier from short circuit or similar events on the outputs, with automatic protection reset), thermal protection (mutes outputs once the output devices reach 75ºC/167ºF – automatic unmute once temperature is down to 65ºC/149ºF), temperature controlled continuous variable speed fan and front to rear airflow.

The target markets for the new amplifier include stage monitoring, hotels, restaurants, bars, visitor attractions, houses of worship, auditoriums, educational facilities, live sound and nightclubs. 

The MA5.0Q is scheduled to start shipping from mid-November.
