What we say

The LEA Connect Series amplifiers are a favourite choice amongst our applications team. They are extremely versatile with selectable impedance on each channel which is ideal for systems where each Zone may have different audio demands. These amplifiers can be managed via a remote Web UI which is an intuitive way to monitor performance and attenuate settings. They even come in Dante versions which is perfect for larger, IP Based systems.
