VISION TC3-AMP Techconnect Stereo Wall Amplifier
**** Not Compatible with TC2 Range****
Vision Techconnect TC3-AMP Digital wall mount amplifier module achieves 50W RMS Total (2 x 25w RMS) (at 8 ohms) by using the latest digital amplifier chip technology. New digital technology allows us to fit the amplifier into a small compact design like the Techconnect module, can be surface mounted, wall mounted or used as an In wall amplifier for amplifying TV and Video audio.

Easy To Use: TC3-AMP has a simple clear control interface which makes the Amplifier easy to use, a long press on the volume dial to power on and off. Short press to change input. Because TC3-AMP Amplifier is so small it can be installed just about anywhere in the room and it is more convenient than traditional powered speakers where access to the controls can be awkward.
Vision Techconnect TC3-AMP has two Inputs hard wired into the rear with removable phoenix connectors, however a new feature of this amplifier is that Input 1 is duplicated on the front panel with a 3.5mm mini jack socket.
Green D-Class Amplifier: Vision TC3-AMP Digital amplifier use no power unless they are amplifying program, so even on at full volume; unless it is receiving input it is effectively off. Digital amplifiers also have the advantage of running cold so a bulky heat sink is not necessary but don't let it's size deceive you: the Techconnect TC3-Amp can drive into a 4 ohm load allowing you to power up to four speakers.
Connect up to 4 Vision Speakers:
Standard: 1 x 8 Ohms Speaker per Channel
4 Speaker Setup: 2 x 8 Ohms Speakers per channel wired in Parallel = 4 ohms
Easy To Install and Uninstall: Vision have paid special attention to creating a robust product that is simple and easy to install, the inputs and outputs on the TC3-AMP are all via removable phoenix connectors which allow non-technical end users to install the amplifier very quickly and also easily uninstall the amplifier if required. The short input cables included are typically connected to the rear of adjacent input modules on the VISION Techconnect or you can indeed connect a source directly.
Remote Control: For convenience a small hand held IR remote is also included, the IR receivers are positioned on the front for normal use and on the rear for integration with a control system such as the Techconnect TC3-CTL.
Power Supply Included: The TC3-AMP Amplifier uses a laptop style power transformer. To hide the power supply out of the way you can simply purchase a spare double-gang backbox (TC3 BACKBOX2G) and blank surround (TC3 SURR2GB) as shown in the Vision Techconnect product guide alternatively you could hide it away under a floor or In a Wall or ceiling void. The amplifier module is equivalent to 2 single modules so can be inserted into a Vision double gang AV surround along with an additional 3 single techconnect AV modules.
Applications: This product is perfect when you don't have furniture to sit a large amplifier on or simply don't have the space for a larger amplifier like the Vision AV-1600. The Vision amplifier module TC3-AMP can be either flush mounted into the wall or existing dado cable containment or by using the supplied surface mount box. The TC3-AMP amp can also be removed from its supplied housing and form part of the Techconnect modular connection AV wall connection plate range and seamlessly looks like part of the connector faceplate.
Just in case the volume needs adjustment the amplifier will always remain fixed in one place and close at hand, because the amplifier is secured to the wall it's much less obvious as a target for theft, making it perfect for training rooms, boardrooms, and classrooms.
Included with the TC3-AMP comes with a single-gang back box and front surround, You can even mount the amplifier module in a double-gang surround, the amplifier module is equivalent to 2 single modules so can be inserted into a Vision double gang AV surround along with an additional 3 single techconnect AV modules. You could even mount this module at the side of any existing AV wall plate.
Note: The Vision TC3 Range ARE NOT BACKWARD COMPATIBLE with previous TC2 Mounting Frames or Modules.
The new TC3 range use smaller modules and will not fit into the TC2 frame, unfortunately if you need to replace a TC2 module and its no longer available you will have to upgrade your existing frame and modules to TC3.
