Whether you want to maximize your home theater experience or transform your living space, OSD Audio has total solutions to help you get the most out of your movies and music--from clean power amplifiers to in-wall and outdoor speakers, subwoofers, custom controls, and more.

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.

Dante • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I'm not sure which amplifier to buy; the MX1260 or the AMP300 High Definition 300W Amp. I have a story home with 12 zones. The speakers upstairs are Zone A and the speakers downstairs, in the garage, on the patio and the deck are Zone B. I've noticed all of the speakers downstairs are not at the same volume as the speakers upstairs. In fact the speakers furtheest away from the audio closet have softer volumes relative to their distances from the receiver. All zones have individual impedance matching volume control and the receiver is the master control volume. The speakers on the patio and the deck are the weakest sounding of all the speakers that are downstairs. I want to add an amplifier to just Zone B but not sure which one will be best. Oh I almost forgot, I have the speakers running through a 6 speaker selector box for each zone. Specifications on the audio equipment: Receiver: Pioneer Audio/Video multichannel VSX-918V All speakers: 8ohm 100watts rating (instaled either in-wall, mounted, or in-ceiling. Volume controls: 8ohm matching No subwoofer Should I turn off the impedance matching on the receiver and let the volume control do it? I am also wanting to install an IR receiver either above or below the volume control on for each zones. Do you have a kit that will do the job? I already ran the IR wire when the volume control wires were being ran. All of the wire was done during construction of the house Any help or recommendations you have will be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your help with this!!

A Hi Dante: We would recommend the AMP300 based upon the Pioneeer multi-channel receiver you are using. It does not feature a signal level Pre-amp output. The AMP300 has an option where you can connect the Speaker level outputs from the Speaker B directly to a high level input. It then steps down the amplified signal back to pre-amplified. According to your setup you should have an impedance matching volume control for each and every zone located between the two six zone Speaker selector. Six zones for Speaker output A (also labeled front speakers) six volume controls and six pair of 8 ohm speakers 100 watt speakers. You have the same setup for the downstairs and outdoors on Speaker B, six zone speaker selector, six IM Volume controls and six pair of 8 ohm 100 watt speakers. For both A and B your impedance matching volume controls all should be set to 8X and you should make sure the protection switch on both of the speaker selectors is diables (turned off). Volume on your system should be determined with all volume controls at full volume all the way clockwise (where they have no effect). Set volume at accepatble level and then use the volume controls to turn the sound down. By adding the AMP300 you will be able to increase the volume level of zone B while making the Zone A more efficient once it only has to worry about powering the single speaker output (A). I like that you have prewired the IR for each zone. Are the preterminated with sensors? We are currently developing our IR product offering. I can recommend a site you may want to contact for more information... Infared Resources on Amazon Marketplace, TL
David Miller • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I have a home with six speakers (8 ohm) built into the ceiling of six seperate rooms. Each room has a seperate volume control. I want to be able to play a stereo receiver through those speakers and have the wires to each coming back to a central location. Can you recommend the type of amplifier I would use. Since there is only a single speaker in each room I am not looking for stereo sound but sound quality is important. Your suggestion?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A David, I would recommend our AMP300 and ISS6 although you would have no way of using that in mono, half would be left and half would be right. Or you could use the mx1260 - the down side is there would be no master volume. CL
Jean-Eric • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I am buying a virtual Organ with up to 254 channel coming form the computer program. I am planning to buy a 8 channel sound card; from the program, I can assign any group of channel to any analog output from the sound-Card. Is this amp the good thing for this : I mean: from the sound card to MX1260 ( 8 cable) to speakers ( directly) ...from the picture, i do not know where is the speaker out. Thanks !
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Jean-Eric, The MX1260 would work perfectly for your application. Connect the signal level outputs from your sound card directly to 8 of the 12 channel inputs of the MX1260 (leaving four open channels). There are removable speaker connections (green connectors) that feature four connections per zone (right and left, positive and negative) that account for two channels each. Set each of the eight channels as line in. You would still have four channels or two zones to use with direct input or from one of the two bus sources. TL/MA
Stanton • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I just moved into a new home that has the backyard wired for outdoor audio. There are 5 sets of speakers wired into the entertainment center (10 speakers - 5 sets of wires), plus my indoor speaker system. I currently have it all wired into a 2 zone Onkyo receiver. I want to up-grade my hardware but am not sure what to get. Is the recommendation to wire a 6 zone amp like the MX1260 behind the receiver to provide a dedicated zone and power to each set of speakers? The indoor and outdoor sets can still be run separately if so? Should I run the inside set off the receiver directly and the outside speakers off the amp? Looking for general hardware set up input. Thanks.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Stanton, That would be optimal to use the MX1260 its a major step above the amp/ speaker selector system. I cant recommend this amp enough, it leaves you room to expand as well with 6 zones/ 12 channels. You can run your internal setup from the existing receiver and drive the outside with the MX1260 from zone 2 output. Can you tell us which Onkyo Reciever you are using? CL
Tim • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Is this unit compatible with Control4
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Tim: That is really a question for Control 4. If all you need is a 12 volt trigger to work with the Control 4 the answer would be yes. I am thinking though it may need an RS232 connection to properly communicate with the Control 4 system a feature that is not offered on ths amplifier. Again I would contact Control 4. TL
