A professional installation multi-media mixer/amplifier made & designed in the UK by Hill Audio. A perfect 1U unit for small installations in bars, restaurants and gyms with the added advantage of having an inbuilt FM tuner, SD card player and USB stick player. So many features are packed into this 1U unit. The IMA200 has a stereo amplifier that runs at 80 watts RMS at 4ohms, so up to 4 8ohm speakers can be connected. Many inputs can be chosen including a USB stick or SD card that will allow playback of MP3 files; the tags for these are displayed on the large LCD display. Music can be played from the inbuilt FM radio with RDS stations being displayed; an external aerial can be connected by a BNC socket on the rear panel. A microphone can be inputted on the rear by using a 1/4" jack for announcements, quizzes and any other occasion where voice amplification is required. The microphone has a 2 band EQ, on/off switch, phantom power and adjustable talk over. The master section has a 41 click volume control, high and low EQ. There is a zone output which can connect to an additional amplifier like the IPA200 Hill amplifier. The zone output has a volume control and the option of sending either the master output or two of the 3 line inputs to an external amplifier. Four line inputs can be connected, 3 RCA inputs can be found on the rear of the unit with the 3rd line input either being a RCA input or a 3.5mm jack which can be connected on the front panel. All line inputs are directly routed to the master volume but all inputs & outputs have rear volume controls so that sound engineers can pre-set the maximum volume which allows a pre-determined output volume to be set at installation. Other features include emergency signal input which will mute the master output so that an emergency massage can be communicated. An output mute contact for connection into suitable fire alarm systems and a MOH (music on hold) output for connection into phone systems for when callers are on hold so any of the IMA200 music sources can be played. Three jingles/messages can be played, these are either played using the 3 jingle buttons on the front panel or they can be set so they play after a certain time period. These will mute the music that is being played and then play the message. This function only overrides the music on the SD card or USB stick not on other inputs or the radio. The best produced multi-media player we have seen with plenty of features to suit any applications it faces.
