Trinnov Amplitude 8 Power Amplifier

VAT included

Achieving maximum performance in an Altitude32 theater requires equally proficient amplification. That is the reason we created the Amplitude8 power amplifier. Optimized to work with Trinnov processors, it integrates seamlessly with the Altitude both visually and technically, and in operation creates a powerful three-dimensional soundstage, with huge dynamic range and bass impact to equal and exceed that of the best commercial theaters.


The Hypex Ncore® NC1200 class-D power module represents the state-of-the-art for audiophile performance, with unparalleled clarity, musicality and resolution. It features the industry’s lowest distortion and noise specifications, and its performance is frequency-independent. You’ll find it in the finest audiophile monoblocks, and that’s why we use it in the Amplitude8.

The audio performance of the Amplitude8 satisfies the most demanding audiophiles, and when watching movies, you’ll find its silent background noise and enormous dynamic range ensures you’ll hear every detail in the quietest passages and clean, undistorted output and impact when the soundtrack is at its highest loudness levels.


Think of this 8-channel class-D power amplifier as two high-output four-channel amplifiers on a single chassis, each with its own power supply.

Each linear power supply is built around a separate heavy-duty toroidal power transformer, enabling every module of the Amplitude8 to deliver 225W into 8 ohms, 375W into 4 ohms and 500W into 2 ohms.

In fact, the Amplitude8 requires two AC power connections.

We perfectly matched the input level of the Amplitude8 to the output level of the Altitude32, optimizing the system’s dynamic range. By doing this, we are able to decrease the background noise of the system by a highly significant 6 to 8 dB, a benefit unavailable when using other amplifiers.

Why is this so important? Immersive audio systems have a large number of speakers, and each is a potential source of background noise, especially when the system has high-sensitivity speakers. A silent background ensures that low-level sounds critical to a soundtrack will not be obscured.


The physical integration of the Amplitude8 and your Altitude processor has also been taken into account. You can take the conventional approach with eight independent XLR input cables, or elegantly simplify your rack installation with a single D-Sub cable that handles all 8 channels.

Convection cooled, the Amplitude8 operates silently, without internal fans, making it ideal for use when the equipment rack is located inside the theater. Once installed, the Amplitude8 front panel complements the look of the Altitude32, creating a magnificent impression in your home theater rack.
