PCM series

The PCM series of power amplifiers represents SAE Audio flagship series on the 2-channel SMPS power amplifier range.Featuring the most advanced technologies on audio power amplification developed by SAE Audio Research and Development laboratories during more than 15 years, the PCM amplifiers are able to deliver an enormous power density (6000W per channel @ 2Ω with the highest power PCM23) with an unprecedented sonic quality from a very lightweight 2 rack-unit amplifier. This great performance and extreme efficiency, achieved through its advanced Regulated SMPS power supply and SAE Audio patented Class I™ power modules, turns the PCM amplifier series in the industry standard for world class pro-touring sound reinforcement applications.
