    Parasound ZoneMaster 1250 Amplifier Description (Showroom Demo): 

    ZoneMaster models are very similar in their feature sets, differing mainly in size and number of channels. It has independent audio sensing triggers, one for each zone and universal amplifier for applications from 50 to 200 watts.

    Introducing ZoneMaster, our new line of high-performance amplifiers for custom installation. ZoneMaster amps combine legendary Parasound Class AB sound quality with the most reliable Class D power modules in the industry.

    Every model in the line is unconditionally stable at two ohms, with bridged power up to 200 watts and unprecedented versatility. ZoneMaster is the new standard in residential and commercial amplification.

    If you are thinking of installing a whole-home audio system, you're going to need a distribution amp. Distribution amps generally have lower power (but more channels) than dedicated home theater amplifiers.

    These are used to send audio all over your home in order to get the same content in multiple rooms. The problem with some distribution amplifiers is that they usually can only be used for distribution purposes.

    The new Parasound offering looks to buck that trend by being as versatile a distribution amp as we've ever seen.

    As you'd expect from a distribution amp, the Parasound ZoneMaster Model 1250 has two "Bus" inputs that can be routed to any of the amplifier channels.

    The Parasound 1250 has 12 channels rated at 50 watts all channels driven. Each channel can be fed from one of the Bus inputs or from a direct input.

    The 1250 can also accept a speaker-level input via the second Bus channel that can be routed to any of the amplifiers.

    Each channel has not one but two pairs of speaker level outputs (Phoenix-style) so that two speakers can be wired to the same channel. These speaker outputs can accept up to a 12 gauge wire.

    As the Parasound ZoneMaster 1250 is stable into 2 ohms, this allows extreme flexibility for your speaker options in your distributed audio system.

    It has a Class A/B input stage and Class D power stage for extremely efficient operation. There are also independent 12-volt triggers with looping trigger outputs for each zone, and a global 12-volt trigger.

    The flexibility doesn't stop there. Users can opt to bridge two of the channels for 160 watts into 8 ohms or 200 watts into 6 ohms to augment their home theater channels.

    With new surround solutions like Dolby Atmos, DTS UHD, and AURO-3D coming out, having extra amplification lying around is now more important than ever.
