Hardware Drawmer CPA-50 Stereo Cube Power Amplifier

Drawmer CPA-50 Stereo Cube Power Amplifier-unnamed.jpg

The CPA-50 Stereo Power Amp is the perfect partner for any passive speaker, and especially in the studio with a set of passive cube monitors.

Sitting between your monitor controller/pre-amp and a pair of passive speakers, the high performance Class D amplifier delivers 25Wrms per channel into 8 ohms (50Wrms per channel into 4ohms) and offers features including thermal, overload and power up/power down protection and fault indication. With just a 6.5” square footprint, the CPA-50 blends seamlessly with a pair of Yamaha NS10 or Auratone C5 monitor types, for example, and is small and light enough to fit into a bag to take anywhere.

As well as the professional Neutrik XLR inputs other features include over temperature protection, over voltage and over current protection with a fault indicator.

As well as working in stereo the CPA-50 can also function as a 100Wrms into 8ohms Monoblock (set via internal jumpers), which allows the system to operate in bi-amped or bridged modes.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but this is a thread dedicated to the product directly..

In bridged mono mode, with this amp mono sum both inputs? Many monitor controller and even the uad Apollo won't output mono unless hitting an extra button.. And sometimes one forgets.

One can build a mono summing cable or buy one for the small fortune of $49.99 (Adorama has one), but it boggles my mind that it's a rarity to have "mono latching" a feature built into anything.

There are probably some monitor controllers that do it, but that doesn't help people with mobile rigs that want to keep their rigs small.

This product has been updated to CPA 50+ (plus).

May be Drawmer or somebody has some details to give about that ?

Thanks ;-)

It now has an overload LED and slightly better noise specs. No change in price.

Hi

I had a response from Drawmer.
Here is the email copy : “The main difference is the cpa50+ has a universal power supply so that the fuse doesn't need to be changed when switching from 110-220v. Audio wise there should be no difference”.
