International is a modular system of high performance Slgna pmcess'
power amplifiers and electronic signal processing that Power output:1 LF; 500w are {2
may be precisely tailored to the specific requirements of 13:52: :19
professional loudspeaker components. Mp: 300w at 8 Q
500 w at 4 Q

The experience gained from building three generations ol HF: 15°" 38 S1
signal-processing power amplifiers brings new Ieatures Gain 32.5 dB, LF-MF-HF

and new standards of performance to ATD IV. In the
713A, the low Irequenoy power amplifier is fully-
complementary and operated from a six-level logic~gated
power supply that adapts to the input waveform,
providing only the DC rail voltages that are required tor
undistorted amplification. The result is tremendous
output capability. cool operation and unconditional
stability over an unusually wide range oi load conditions.
A delayed-ON, instant-OFF muting control circuit allows
internal supply voltages to stabilize belore loudspeakers
are connected. Speaker connections are instantly
removed, should there be an interruption of AC power.

The 713A provides power amplification, signal processing
and precise control for high-performance three-way
loudspeaker systems, while avoiding the intertace and
operational problems usually encountered with separate
components. Included are three apportioned power
amplifiers, system high pass filters, precision step
attenuators, fourth-order Bessel active crossovers,
all-pass delay networks for time-phase correction, low
frequency Thiele-Small alignment equalization and
exacting 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
tor this purpose. See 'Optional Equipment' brochure for
