A beloved power amp
The t.amp E-800 is one of Thomann's best-selling stereo power amplifiers, a success that is due in no small part to the performance and features it offers for such a budget-friendly price. It features a 19"/2U rack format and provides amplification across a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz while delivering 2 x 500W into four ohms, which allows it to provide sound for an audience up to 100 people depending on the location. The E-800 features XLR and 6.35mm jack inputs as well as outputs in both speaker twist and screw terminal formats, so the most commonly used connection options are covered. Safe operation is also ensured by an onboard limiter and additional protection circuits.
Reliable and user-friendly
Being a class H amplifier, the E-800 from the t.amp delivers both a high level of efficiency and low levels of distortion, and it can operate as a power amplifier with a signal-dependent supply voltage. In stereo mode, the two channels operate independently of one another, while in parallel mode, the speakers are connected to both channels and receive the signal from channel A. Finally, bridged mode allows the input signal from channel A to be amplified at twice the power. The amplifier's safety features include DC, short-circuit, and over-temperature protection circuits, and it is also very user-friendly thanks to its LED indicators, which help the user to operate it safely: Each channel features a signal LED to indicate whether a signal is present, as well as a clipping LED to indicate that an overload is present (and the integrated limiter has been activated) or a short-circuit has occurred. Further LEDs in turn indicate whether the amplifier is in an unstable condition or is overheating, as well as providing information about the active operating mode. In addition, a ground lift switch is provided to help eliminate ground loops.
For DJs, bands, organisers, and rental companies
A wide range of users will find the answer to their specific requirements in the t.amp E-800. For example, it is suitable for event organisers looking for a compact power amplifier for fixed installation in a small live location. Rental companies in turn can add this reliable power amp to their portfolio at an affordable purchase price and thus provide a robust and easy-to-use rental amp. And both DJs and bands can use the E-800 as part of their home or rehearsal room setup and for live sound in bars and youth centers. More generally, however, anyone who can do without a soft start function, DSP effects, an integrated crossover, or two-ohm stability can definitely take a closer look at the t.amp E-800.
About the t.amp
the t.amp is one of the many in-house brands belonging to Musikhaus Thomann, and since 1998 has offered power amplifiers, complete passive PA sets, keyboard amplifiers, and connection systems. The brand’s entire product range delivers an impressive combination of quality and reliability at attractive prices, and users can find a convincing and affordable solution for every application: From youth clubs and sports halls through to congress centres and much more.
For large bars, small clubs, and on the road
Whether it's for the rehearsal room or a live gig, the t.amp E-800 is a reliable component for a compact band PA. For parties and small gigs, solo entertainers and DJs can also use this amplifier as a separate power amp for one or two subwoofers. For outdoor sound at larger parties, two E-800s can be combined, while bars can also use the amp in their fixed installations even when the room has poor heat dissipation, thanks to its two temperature-controlled fans which provide adequate cooling. Those who regularly want to transport the amplifier from place to place will appreciate both its compact height of 2U and its relatively low weight of 12.8kg.
