This amplifier has been designed and crafted to provide the user with a high level of sonic performance. Special attention has been paid towards minimizing the number of components in the audio signal path, resulting in extremely low distortion, excellent transient response, and wide dynamic range. This Synthesis amplifier sets new benchmarks in the use of high technology, and, when used as part of a JBL Synthesis System, will provide you with the experience of being in some fo the world's greatest movie-houses and concert halls, right at home!
THX Ultra Licensed This amplifier meets or exceeds the stringent specifications set by the Lucas THX Audio division, some of which are for power handling, total harmonic distortion, frequency response, signal to noise ratio, slew rate, and crosstalk. Asa a result, when it is incorporated into a THX system, you will hear in your home exactly what that the director and the sound engineer heard in the recording studio.
Multi-Channel Amplification The S400A has been designed to integrate well in the world of multi-channel audio. The S400A is a two channel amplifier that can also be mono-bridged for more power.
High Power Capability The S400A provides a monstrous 200 watts per channel of clean audio (<0.03% THD) not a four or eight ohm load, and 400 watts per channel when mono-bridged into an eight ohm load, making it ideal for powering subwoofers and surround speakers, which are typically less efficient than front speakers. Because of its power capability, this amp has an extremely wide dynamic range, a critical element in home cinema.
Auto Turn-On and Power Sequencing Circuitry When used in a JBL Synthesis System, the S400A can be turned on automatically whenever the surround processor is activated. No longer fo you have too get out of chair to turn on the amplifiers in your entertainment system with just one touch of the remote control ore the surround processor, and you're there! Due to the high current demands of power amplifiers during power-up, the S400A is equipped with a built-in power sequencing circuit. which turns on each unit, one by one.
