The experience gained from building three generations of Gain: 325 dB. LFAHF

signal~processing power amplifiers brings new features
and new standards of performance to ATD IV. The low
frequency power amplifier oi the 712A is fully
complementary and operates from a six«|evel logicgated
power supply that adapts to the input waveform to
provide only the DC rail voltages necessary for
undistorted amplification. The result is tremendous
output capability, cool operation and unconditional
stability over an unusually wide range of load conditions.
A delayed-ON, instant-OFF muting control circuit allows
internal supply voltages to stabilize before loudspeakers
are connected. Speaker connections are instantly
removed, should there be an interruption of AC power.

Included in the 712A are two apportioned power
amplifiers, selectable system high pass filters, precision
step attenuators, fourth-order Bessel active crossovers,
an adjustable all-pass delay network for LF-HF
time-phase correction at crossover, adjustable low
frequency Thiele-Small alignment equalization, balanced
and unbalanced inputs with looping provision and high
frequency power response compensation for
professional compression drivers.

For users desiring specific non-standard features and/or
signal processing, a wide range of options are available,
including high pass frequencies, crossover frequencies

and filter topology and HF power response equalization.

See 'Optional Equipment' brochure for details.
