The Samson SX1200 stereo power amplifier has been designed to provide robust, clean output with low distortion and wide dynamic range, along with the dependability demanded by professional audio engineers and installer

The Samson SX Series stereo power amplifiers have been designed to provide robust, clean output with low distortion and wide dynamic range, along with the dependability demanded by the most professional audio engineers and installers.

The SX-1200 is an efficient class AB amplifier that offers ease of operation and plenty of available power to effectively drive a moderate sized PA, monitor fills, or fixed installation system.

Features:

•  Professional Class AB Power Amplifier
•  300 watts per side @ 8 ohms
•  450 watts per side @ 4 ohms
•  900 watts @ 8 ohms in bridged mono
•  Dual Variable-speed Fan Cooling System
•  Signal, Peak, and Protection Circuit Indicators
•  5-way Binding Post and Speakon Speaker Outputs
•  XLR and TRS Input Connections
•  Dual Rack Space Design

Highlights:

•  Clean, crisp sound - Impressive audio specifications such as 0.04% THD, dynamic range of 105 dB, crosstalk of 80 dB, and frequency response of 10 Hz to 55 kHz guarantee ultra-clean sound quality.
•  Independent input level controls for each channel allow precision adjustments.
•  LED signal indicators for each channel continuously display power output levels and allow you to correct for overloading (clipping) conditions.
•  Unique stable bipolar circuit design that continuously keeps DC output during idling at or near zero volts (thus keeping idle speakers at their zero point). This serves to minimize heat overload problems by effectively preventing the SX Series from applying power when unnecessary.
•  Forced air cooling via two temperature-sensitive, variable speed fans provides reliable performance without thermal and overheating problems.
•  Protection relay circuitry (with dedicated LEDs for each channel) that guards against overheating or faulty wiring conditions and also prevents “thumps” when powering on or off. This means that you can use the SX Series with a single power strip into which a mixer or other audio devices are connected, without danger of damage to connected speakers.
•  Combination input connectors for each channel accommodate both balanced XLR or balanced 1/4-inch TRS plugs.
•  Output connections are made via 5-way binding posts and Speakon™ connectors.
•  Toroidal transformer power supply for high current and low profile.
•  User-resettable circuit breaker for fast, easy startup following a power supply overload.
•  The SX Series can be mounted in any standard 19" rack (taking just two rack spaces), making it easy to integrate the amp into any fixed or traveling PA rig.
•  Rugged construction (an all-steel chassis with a cool gray finish and a lightweight anodized aluminum heat sink) makes the SX Series eminently roadworthy.
•  Last but certainly not least, value. The Samson SX Series has been designed from the ground up to deliver excellent yet affordable sound quality.

Comments about Samson SX1200 Power Amplifier:

As a 20 year DJ and former roadie, I have used amps as cheap as Pyle Pro/Gemini to big boss QSC. For the price ([$]), this amp kicks nuts! For any DJ like me or even to power some mains or monitors, this guy will do you right!

    Comments about Samson SX1200 Power Amplifier:

    This is a good amp.
    I had my doubts when I ordered it.
    I have some Samson mics that we use on stage and they are very good, so I tried it.
    Not disappointed. This amps kicks.
    Bought 3 more to drive it all, mains & monitors.
    Works down to 2 ohms and does not complain.
    Good dog!

    Good stuff

    Comments about Samson SX1200 Power Amplifier:

    "This is one of the best little amps out there. I use them for mains, monitors, and side fills. Just enough balls to rattle the windows. No problem with overheating, keep the little filters clean. The blue lights blink nice also. 4 on mains, 2 on monitors, 2 on side fills. Lots of head room, lots of response. Have had no problems. Good performers, unlike Crown. "

    We've been using Samson wireless systems for a while now with great results. This is our first Samson power amp and we're very happy. Plenty of power for most of the rooms we play.
