      The Contemporary Research 232-Amp+ is a compact, programmable mixer/amplifier aimed at integration with flat-panel displays and video projectors. The versatile amp features a stereo line-level display/projector audio input and two mono aux inputs, and
      outputs 32/40W RMS stereo sound. The aux inputs mix levels with the stereo input, and can be set to mute or lower other inputs when active, ideal for wireless mics and paging applications. The Class D amp is 90% efficient, operates with very little heat, and
      draws almost no power when quiet. The 232-Amp+W includes integrated flanges for surface mounting.

      When combined with a CR tuner and pole mount, the 232-Amp+ serves as an integrated AV tuning/audio solution for video projector installations. The optional SMA bracket mounts the 232-Amp+ to the top of CR tuners, and a single RS-232 port can control a 232-series tuner and amp.
