M⋅401e, Multi-Room Digital Amplifier

The Mirage M-401e Multi-Room Digital Amplifier is a state-of-the-art, IP controllable, multi-room amplifier with some of the highest performance specifications in its class. Boasting 50 watts per channel into an 8-ohm load, the M-401e has the power to drive higher end architectural or floor-standing speakers. Its IP controllability makes it the perfect choice in a controlled environment, and coax and TOSLINK digital connectors on all inputs ensure clean and pure sonic performance in every room.

Use it as a stand-alone, IP-controllable distribution amplifier, or pair it with a Mirage Media Server to create a complete whole home audio solution, the Mirage Audio System. The Mirage M-401e is a 4-zone amplifier, expandable to 96 zones, with extensive zone linking capabilities.

Remotely manage and access the web configuration of the Mirage M-401e Multi-Room Amplifier using the Autonomic Dealer Zone Device Manager (available only to authorized Autonomic Dealers).
Multi-Zone, Multi-Source Switching The M-401e amplifier can route audio signals from any one of its 6 inputs (analog or digital) into any one or more of its 4 amplified zone outputs under manual or with IP or RS-232 automation control.
Control and Configuration Built in web interface
Zone Linking A zone group can be created to link multiple zones. Zone linking ties the source selection together across the group. It can optionally coordinate volume and the power state of linked zones. This is useful for closely coupled audio areas where it is advantageous to separate volume levels, but the same audio source, or coordinate the same volume with separate power control.
Expandable to 96 Zones The four-zone M-401e can be configured in a stack of up to 12 amplifiers (M-401e or M-801e models) and operate under a unified control interface to accommodate large installations without the complexity of coordinating the control of multiple amplifiers.
