The powerful AP4020/AP4040 weigh a comfortable but solid 40/43 lbs. and occupy only two rack spaces. They deliver 1200 Watts per channel (AP4020 @ 2 Ohms, AP4040 @ 4 Ohms). The AP4020/4040 power amplifiers also incorporate a 'soft turn-on' circuit which eliminates nuisance breaker-tripping on power-up.

AudioPro amplifiers feature advanced protection schemes including DC current, load, thermal and breaker protection as well as a user-defeatable peak limiter that is transparent below clipping levels. A 'soft turn-on' circuit eliminates damage to attached components and prevents nuisance breaker-tripping. The computer-optimized (Silentfan) front-to-back heat dissipation system incorporates ultra-quiet, variable-speed internal fans and are designed to ensure that excessive thermal stress will not occur. For ease of maintenance and to ensure efficient cooling, the amplifiers are supplied with long-life, faceplate-mounted, user serviceable, air intake filters. Front panel Power, Protect, Activity and Clip LED's are bright and easy to see and all knobs and handles are recessed for safe, easy transportation.

The internal signal path has been optimized and a toroidal transformer is used - both of which serve to reduce hum and noise while keeping weight to a minimum. The two-tier power conversion of the AudioPro AP-Series amplifiers approaches efficiency levels normally associated with switching power supply technology; yet provide the superior transient response and low distortion of the best analog designs. Inside an AP4020 AudioPro amplifier designs, while unique, are conservative with regard to the power handling capabilities of the output devices. To further assure trouble-free operation, all AudioPro amplifiers undergo a thorough computer-monitored, temperature-cycled, burn-in period to test for any deviation from design parameters.

The back panel features Speakon and binding post outputs as well as balanced XLR & 1/4" TRS inputs. The peak limiter, subsonic filter, mono/stereo/bridge mode and ground lift switches are also mounted on the back panel. The unique Yorkville Impedance Mode switch (AP1020 & AP2020), also located on the back panel, allows the user to select full output power into two or four ohms for maximum application flexibility.

This is a great sounding amp and plenty loud. Unfortunately, it also runs loud. Has a very loud audible fan motor that is pretty unbearable. Going to check and see if it's normal and if so, return it and get one that isn't so loud. Loud fans mean soon to be worn out bearings and equipment downtime !!
