High power, exceptional clarity, and cutting-edge networking capability – Yamaha's PC-1N series is the new standard of professional power amplifiers. The PC4801N delivers 475W/channel of stereo power into 8 ohms (1450W bridged). With excellent linear power characteristics and refined hardware designs, PC-1N series amplifiers deliver the quality, performance, reliability, and sound demanded by today's professionals. Their specs tell you a lot but your ears will tell you more. Extensive testing and feedback on the physical design results in a more musical sound through greater audio depth and detail. The PC-1N amplifiers feature an exceptionally stable power supply, and provide thorough cancellation of physical vibrations with specially designed mounting for clear, accurate sound. The high power and high damping factor results in a remarkably tight and crisp sound – full and rich, as well as detailed and accurate.
The PC-1N series adopts a newly designed switching regulator that delivers the ideal power supply to the amplifier. It ensures a more stable and balanced supply of voltage and current, and eliminates fluctuations in output level. The result is clear, accurate sound with high reliability in a lightweight, power-saving package. The PC-1N series also utilizes Yamaha's advanced proprietary EEEngine technology. EEEngine cuts power consumption by a full 50% in comparison with conventional power amplifiers, yet without the slightest sacrifice in sound quality. The independent high-speed voltage buffer gives quick response, and the addition of new MOSFET circuitry to the buffer makes the PC-1N series twice as efficient as normal power amps.
