                           Signal to Noise Ratio, A-Weighted,
                           CH 1, CH 2, CL 1 & CL 2: Better than 105 dB
                           below rated 1-kHz power. 
                           CH 4 & CL 4: Better than 102 dB below rated
                           1-kHz power.

                           rated power: 0.5% or less true THD from 20Hz
                           to 20 kHz.
                           Intermodulation Distortion (60 Hz and 7 kHz

                           DC Output Offset (Shorted Input): ±10 mV Controls 
    Level: A detented rotary level control for each channel
    located on the rear panel.

    Power: An on/off rocker switch located on the front  panel. 

    Mode: A two-position switch located on the back panel which, when turned to “Stereo,” operates the amplifier as two independent channels. When “Bridge” is selected, the amplifier bridges the two output channels for twice the output voltage.

    Channel Operation Switch (CH Series only): A two-position switch located on the back panel which, when turned to 4/8 Ohm, sets the amplifier to drive low-impedance speaker loads. Turning the switch to70V/100V (70V only on the CH4) sets the amplifier to drive distributed high-impedance speaker loads and inserts a 70-Hz high-pass filter into the signal chain to prevent step-down transformer saturation.

    Indicators Signal: A green indicator for each channel which
    flashes when a very low-level signal (>-40 dBm) ispresent at input. May be used for troubleshooting cable runs.

    Clip: A red indicator for each channel which turns on when distortion becomes audible in the amplifier output.

    Fault: A red indicator for each channel which indicates amplifier has muted output. Normally off. Status may be monitored remotely by plugging into  back-panel RJ11 Fault jack. 
    Power: A blue indicator that turns on when the amplifier has been turned on and has power. 
    Input/Output Input Connector (standard module): One Neutrik Combo connector for each channel which features a balanced ¼-inch (6.35-mm) phone jack and a 3-pin female XLR connector, in parallel with a barrier striptermination.
    Input Stage: Input is electronically balanced and employs precision 1% resistors.

    Input Impedance: Nominally 20 k ohms, balanced. Nominally 10 k ohms, unbalanced.

    Input Sensitivity: Channel independent. Factory set t 1.4 volts for standard 1-kHz, 8-ohm power. 26-dB gain and 0.775-volt sensitivity available as a ServiceOption.
    Output Connectors,  CH1 and CH2: Four-terminal touch-proof barrier block, one per channel, allows connection of load to 8-ohm, 4-ohm, 70V or 100V outputs. CH4: Four-terminal touch-proof barrier block.
    CL Series: Four-terminal touch-proof barrier block.
    Output Signal, 
    Stereo: Unbalanced, two-channel. 
    Bridge-Mono: Balanced, single-channel. Channel 1controls are active; Channel 2 should be turned down.
    CH and CL Series amplifiers are protected against shorted, open or mismatched loads; overloaded power supplies; excessive temperature, chain destruction phenomena, input overload damage and high-frequency blowups. They also protect loudspeakers from input/output DC, large or dangerous DC offsets and turn-on/turn-off transients.
    Service Options: SST-SBSC: variable Linkwitz-Riley stereo crossover with mono-summed sub-bass outputs; SST-MX: 100-Hz Linkwitz-Riley crossover with stereo sub-bass output; SST-SX: 80-/120-Hz switchable Linkwitz-Riley crossover with mono summed sub-bass output.
