APart introduces the CONCEPT1: a competitive integrated amplifier for professional use

For a long time, installers worldwide have been looking for a professional integrated amplifier for use in commercial environments, boardrooms or small businesses.  An affordable but yet professional unit, designed for 24/7 operation.

Their search arises from the fact that many small business owners often frown upon professional sound systems. They consider a traditional combination of pre-amplifier – amplifier – sources cumbersome, and fear it will burden their budget.  All too often, the result is a consumer hi-fi amp or minisystem, sadly sitting on a shelf somewhere behind a store counter.

As an answer to these questions, Apart now introduces the CONCEPT1: an affordable pro-use stereo integrated amplifier. It can operate with one stereo zone, two volume-linked zones, or two individual-volume zones. The unit also offers versatile user and installer settings, RS-232 control, gain-adjustable line-inputs, a MIC-input for paging, and many other professional features.

CONCEPT1 can operate with 1 stereo zone, 2 volume-linked mono zones or 2 individual-volume mono zones.

Thanks to its low price and accessible professional features, Apart’s CONCEPT1 bridges the gap between consumer hifi and pro audio. From now on, installers will be able to answer the demands of small businesses by offering an affordable model with all the professional options under the hood!
