LAB GRUPPEN’s innovative LUCIA (Localized Utility Compact Intelligent Amplification) brings superior audio performance and extraordinary flexibility to a decentralized approach in AV systems design. Power, processing, control and I/O are conveniently placed exactly where they are needed. In many AV applications requiring consistently outstanding performance, LUCIA offers a logical,
cost-efficient and scalable solution that often eliminates the complications and added expense of a centralized equipment room. LUCIA amplifiers incorporate a digital, firmware-controlled front end coupled to a robust, durable and highly efficient LAB GRUPPEN output stage, all of which make LUCIA the best-sounding and most reliable compact amplifier in its category.
LUCIA 120/1-70 has been designed and engineered for quick installation and easy setup. The supplied wall-mount bracket enables discreet on-wall location (such as behind video displays), but the ultra-compact form factor also allows easy placement virtually anyplace – whether next to a projector or integrated into a reception counter, podium & lectern or bar area. All input and output connections are on Euroblock screw terminals (with parallel unbalanced RCA connectors), and level setting is available on front-panel potentiometers. Advanced circuitry protects the amplifier and connected loudspeakers from potential damage caused by clipping, thermal overload, or extreme low line voltage.
The LUCIA 120/1-70 incorporates a digital front end with a 2 x 1 Mix Matrix and comprehensive DSP features, including proprietary Automatic Dynamic Loudness Contouring (ADLCTM) and a full selection of EQ filters both before and after the matrix – features that eliminate the need for external mixers and processors in many applications, saving time and money. A software wizard facilitates fast setup, while the advanced editor allows offline configuration of common presets that can be quickly downloaded to multiple units via USB.
LUCIA amplifiers are ENERGY STAR qualified, making them an ideal choice for installation in projects seeking energy efficient certifications. The amplifiers automatically enter standby mode after a 20 minute period with no signal input, consuming less than 1 watt. Automatic power-up occurs within two seconds after an input signal is sensed.
