Introducing the V2108

 

Now in its fourth generation, the V2108 is Quested’s longest standing product and sets the benchmark in our nearfield monitoring range. When it was launched in 1988, the V2108 instantly built an enviable reputation with some of the world’s most critical and demanding users. Whilst always staying true to its origins, the V2108 has evolved over the past thirty years, with improvements in both transducers and amplification that keep pace with the ever-changing needs of the industry. This has allowed it to earn a lifetime of trust with producers and artists around the globe, whilst staying young at heart. Suited to standalone monitoring or multi-channel applications, the V2108 is our most powerful and versatile nearfield reference.

 POWER AMPLIFIERS

HF output power: > 200W rms continuous (note 1)

LF output power: > 200W rms continuous (note 1)

THD: < 0.03% at levels up to 1dB below clip, 20Hz – 20kHz. typ 0.005% @ 20W rms 1kHz.

Hum + Noise: > -100dB referred to clip

note 1: The continuous rating is for a period not exceeding 5 minutes with unrestricted airflow (>100mm clearance) around the amplifier rear panel and ambient temperatures is      <30 o C

INDICATION

Power on: Front mounted LED (flashing blue) indicates power applied and warm-up cycle.

Optimum Performance: Front mounted LED lights constant blue.

Overload: Front mounted LED flashes red (HF 1dB below signal clip, LF 2dB below signal clip)

Thermal Protection: Front mounted LED turns red, signal is muted and amplifier switches to standby mode during thermal protection cooling cycle. Normal operation resumes when amplifier temperature drops by 20 o C.
