QSC amplifiers
« on: May 29, 2014, 12:16:20 am »

Is it me or does it seem to anyone else QSC's latest offerings are geared more towards the install market than for live sound or touring. I base this perception on the lack of two channel DSP equipped high output amplifiers vs. the many lines of available 4 channel amplifiers. What gives QSC?

My guess is they found out the money is in Installs, and MI geared speakers such as the K series.

Top tier touring has moved towards self-powered or whole-package systems.

QSC is spending development dollars where they will make their greatest return.

Actually there is a bigger market for "tiny" mixers than big ones.  I think they will sell a ton of them.

I can't wait to get rid of my boring old 2 channel amps and move into 4 channel units.  Reduced rack space, but added flexibility of deciding how much power I need with less gear.  I love it.  Only wish Ethernet connectivity was an option.

Agreed! I just bought a couple of Powersoft M50Q -- 4 channels X 750w@8 ohms or 1250w @ 4 ohms DSP + ETH and best part: ONE rack space! My racks just got smaller!

My reference is to the quantity of 4 channel 72v installation type amplifiers QSC seems to have at this time. A much larger choice than the choices available for either 2 or 4 channel amplifiers with built in DSP.
 
And if all your looking for is 1200 watts per channel I suppose you've made your point. However, summing a pair channels in a four channel amp to achieve enough output to power your cabinets tends to defeat the purpose of a 4 channel amp. duh.
 
I do however agree that a 4 channel amp will be the way to go. Lighter, more compact, etc. However, my question was concerning the apparent emphasis QSC has placed on amplifiers specifically marketed for installation purposes, not the one line of 4 channel amplifiers with low output they now have available for pro sound purposes. I had actually expected to see a DSP equipped 380 in the lineup at some point.

Sounds like QSC is comfortable in the touring market (and doing well) and has decided to branch out further into the installed side.  I don't think install sound is where they are heading.
