Product Details

LUCIA 240 / 2 has been designed and engineered with quick install and very easy setup in mind. Each unit comes supplied with a wall-mount bracket allowing for discreet on-wall location (such as behind video displays) but can also be located close to wherever it needs to be in the room – such as next to projector or integrated into a reception counter, podium & lectern or bar area. All connections are via Euroblock screw terminals (also RCA phono inputs shared with channel 1 and 2), and level setting is available on front-panel potentiometers. Advanced circuitry protects the amplifier and connected loudspeakers from potential damage caused by clipping, thermal overload, or extreme low line voltage. 

Great sound, flexibility and ease of use 

Lab.gruppen’s innovative LUCIA (Localized Utility Compact Intelligent Amplification) brings superior audio performance and extraordinary flexibility to a decentralized approach in AV systems design. Power, processing, control and I/O are conveniently placed exactly where they are needed. In many AV applications requiring consistent, high quality audio output, LUCIA offers a logical, costefficient and scalable solution that eliminates the complications and added expense of a centralized equipment room for amplification, matrixing and processing. All LUCIA amplifiers incorporate a digital, firmware-controlled front end coupled to a robust, durable and highly efficient Lab.gruppen output stage, all of which make it the best sounding compact amplifier in its category. 

LUCIA amplifiers install quickly and easily, with the supplied wall-mount bracket enabling discreet on-wall placement behind video displays. All connections are via Euroblock screw terminals, and level setting is available on front-panel potentiometers. An advanced protection scheme protects the amplifier and connected loudspeakers from potential damage caused by clipping, thermal overload, or extreme low line voltage. 

Green credentials 

LUCIA amplifiers are ENERGY STAR qualified, making them an ideal choice for installation in projects seeking energy efficient certifications. The amplifiers automatically enter standby mode after a 20 minute period with no signal input, consuming less than 1 watt. Automatic power-up occurs within two seconds after an input signal is sensed.

Energy Star Qualified

By maintaining very low current draw during operating cycles even at high output levels, and reduced power consumption during non-operational cycles, our Energy Star qualified products harness impeccable Lab.gruppen sonic performance and robust power output while meeting the rigorous efficiency requirements of current Energy Star certification standards. 

Auto Load Sense

Innovative Auto Load Sense technology which detects the impedance load on each channel and self-configures for optimal performance, allowing it to deliver maximum power output on all loads from 2-8 ohms. This means a single LUCIA amplifier can be used to effectively drive up to 16 loudspeakers (if 16 ohm devices, 8 per channel).

Low Impedance Amplification

There are many advantages to Lo-Z audio systems compared to constant voltage ‘distributed systems’. LUCIA harnesses all of these to give you the best sounding solution in the most cost-efficient package: Better sound, improved LF performance, save cost on loudspeakers without transformers and no need for long cable runs or conduit.
