PCM Series Amplifiers

Perfectly Built, Advanced, High Power Density

2-Channel SMPS Power Amplifier Range

The PCM series of a power amplifiers represents SAE audio flagship series on a 2-channel SMPS
power amplifier range. Featuring the most advanced technologies on audio power amplification
developed by SAE Audio Research and Development laboratories during more than 15 years, the
PCM amplifiers are able to deliver an enormous power density (3900W per channel @ 2Ω with the
highest power PCM18 with an unprecedented sonic quality from a very lightweight 2 rack-unit am-
plifier. This great performance and extreme efficiency, achieved through its advanced Regulated
SMPS power supply and SAE Audio patented Class I™ power modules, turns the PCM amplifiers in
the industry standard for world-class pro-touring sound reinforcement applications.
