L-Acoustics Highlights LA7.16I Amplified Controller At Plasa Show 2022


August 10, 2022

Since its unveiling during L-Acoustics keynote event in Paris this May, the new LA7.16i amplified controller has received unanimous praise. This September will see it take pride of place on L-Acoustics stand J1, giving PLASA Show visitors the opportunity to discover how to “amplify differently”.

The new LA7.16i amplified controller surmounts the limitations of current high power amplifier configurations used in most installation projects. Improving flexibility and efficiency, especially in multi-channel scenarios, LA7.16i offers a lower cost-per-channel solution, consuming 30% less energy when idle. LA7.16i has an unprecedented 16×16 architecture in a 2U chassis with seamless Milan-AVB redundancy. Each of the 16 output channels delivers up to 1,300 watts at 8 ohms or 1,100 watts at 4 ohms. Its high-efficiency design benefits applications like medium to large-scale applications, where rack space and weight limitations may be a concern.

Also on show will be the new Soka colinear line source and its companion SB6i subwoofer, also first seen in May. Accompanying them will be X4i, and SB10i subwoofer which provide exciting new creative possibilities for sound designers, interior designers, and architects to shape sound and space to their needs.

Additionally, the stand will have an L-ISA Studio workstation, where visitors can try object-oriented mixing using L-Acoustics’ concert-proven L ISA technology that allows them to formulate multidimensional audio wherever and whenever they are ready to create.

Developed to improve the workflow and unleash the creative potential of all sound creators, L-ISA Studio seamlessly interfaces with leading digital audio workstations, show control software, and game engines. It also offers compatibility with various 3D audio format outputs, including Dolby Atmos and multi-channel configurations.

The PLASA Show takes place from 4th to 6th September at London Olympia.
