Rated at 40 Watts per channel RMS at 8 ohms, the MX1260 is a serious contender for complex audio systems and will distribute sound to 12 different locations without the risk of overload. Equipped with brains and brawn, this sturdy, rack-mountable high current amp includes 6 zones or 12 channels (speakers), so owning this amp is like having six 2-channel amps in one efficient location.

What is a Multi-Channel Amplifier?
Multi-channel amps incorporate high-efficiency, space-saving digital technology. Multi-channel amps eliminate the complexity of wiring up multiple two-channel amps, save space by reducing the number of components that must be placed in cabinets, and drive down your amplifier costs by as much as a third over multiple two-channel models, or adding impedance matching equipment to the two channel systems. Having a 12 or 16 channel amplifier will allow you to directly connect 12 or 16 rooms, directly to the amplifier without overloading.

56 Questions asked on MX1260 12-Channel, 60W Per Channel, 6 Zone Power Amplifier, Toroidal Transformers. (4 Ohm stable)

Jesse • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Will the MX1260 allow different inputs to play simultaneously thru the zone they are connected to? For example, if I'm listening to music on my patio via input 1 - zone 1, can my kids listen to music in the living room via input 2 - zone 2 at the same time? If so does that apply to each of the 6 inputs and their corresponding zone?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Jesse: Yes, you can play different sources thru different zones. Technically you can connect up to six stereo inputs or a combination using the two universal buss inputs or direct input to the zone. You have a line input switch for each channel. So zone one has a switch for left channel 1 input and right channel 2 input. There are three settings for each channel; Buss 1, Buss 2 or Line in (local direct input). The Buss 1 and 2 settings are a universal input that can be selected for 1 to 6 zones. The local input is only for that channel/zone. So yes this will work for your application but the these switches are located on the rear panel and depending on your installation may not be readily accessible to change. I hope that answers your question. TL/3842
RH • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can I use the bus selector AND the direct input to each channel, or am I stuck BUS SELECTOR ONLY or DIRECT INPUT ONLY? Thanks for all the great info here...
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi RH: You have a choice for each channel where you can select Bus 1, Bus 2 or Line input. But you can do that in any combination you choose.You could select Bus 1 for Channels 1, 2, 3, 4 and line in for channels 5, 6, 7, 8 and then back to Bus 1 for channel 9, 10, 11 and 12. You have to select one of the three options and of course a low level input has to be connected to the corresponding input as well. Note when you select the turn on option it affects all 12 channels or 6 zones, Manual on, switched with power button on the front. Auto Sensing also needs to have the power button pushed in (on position) to work, but goes into stand by when no signal present. The Power button must be on as well for the trigger to receive a signal to turn on. I am not sure if that totally answered your question, let me know how your question pertains to your application.; TL/3859
Jon • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Does this come with Rack mounts? IF not what size/options pair with it?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Jon: Sorry this does not come with dedicated Rack mounts. The unit size is 2U (3.5") . Checkout Universal rack mount kits for 2U. TL/4008
Tom • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I plan to bride this amp to power 3 zones (2 speakers per zone). Each zone will have a dedicated sonos connect. That way I can control what music is played in each zone as well as the volume in each zone via the sonos app. Can this be done?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Tom: I believe so. You would bridge channel 1 and 2 for the left speaker and channels 3 and 4 bridged for the right channel both for Zone 1 and SONOS Connect #1. Channels 5-8 for Zone 2 /SONOS Connect #2 and Channels 9-12 for Zone 3/SONOS Connect #3. Now that is if you are driving a pair of 8 ohm speakers for each zone. You have some flexibility if you need to drive two pair of speakers in any one of your three zones. If this were the case you would not bridge four of the channels but assign channel 1 and 2 as left and right and channel 3 and 4 as left and right as well, You would take the SONOS Connect and wire it to the BUS 1 input and then assign the input for each channel to BUS1. You have some flexibility Good luck TL/4096
Tom • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q why no banana plugs on the MX1260?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Tom: They is not enough area on the back panel area for Binding Posts for each speaker output. AS you can see you have a speaker output connector with four connections Right and Left (+,-). where the whole connector is removable providing better leverage to tighten the bare wire inserted into the slots when terminating the speaker outputs. Sorry about that TL/4098
