Legacy Audio i-V7
Removing dynamic limitations while preserving detail is paramount to the listening experience -- home theater demands both high current (i) and high voltage (V) output.
Legacy Audio’s new i·V 7 is the most powerful home theater amplifier to date.
Featuring state of the art ICEedge® technology, the elegant seven channel amplifier approaches 80% efficiency while delivering 600 watts per channel into 8 ohms all seven channels driven. Such exceptional power is the product of very high current (i) and voltage (V) output capabilities providing stability into impedances as low as 2.7 ohms. The amplifier supports 12VDC triggered on/off and will also be available in a rack mount 8 channel version for Atmos® installations.
i·V 7 Features:
- Short circuit protection
- Thermal protection
- Triggered On/Off
- Standby switch
- Front panel status indicator
Say goodbye to excessive heat and transformer hum. The crystal-clear sound is virtually noise-free and reliability is assured- after all, it’s a Legacy.
Music reproduction can demand high peak wattage requirements yet is still highly transient by nature. The iV7 amplifier boasts four very capable power supplies, each shared by two channels.
PS1: output channels 1, 2 PS2: output channels 3, 4
PS3: output channels 5, 6 PS4: output channels 7, 8
While each channel output is identical in capability, it is logical to pair a higher demand front channel with a lower demand surround channel to maximize performance from a given power supply. Consult the user manual for suggested connection templates.
