The K2 – K4 series is equally versatile in both portable and installed sound systems, is suitable for small and medium power solution, is flexible and cost-effective.

Example of compact power is the K4C with its 4 channels deliver up to 6000 W in 2RU 10.5 kg / 23.1 lb.

The K series is GREEN POWER, efficiency means eco-friendly, and in other words, money saving in elettricity; the minimum heat dissipation makes the K series suitable for hot places or the conditioning demands is strongly reduced.

The mechanical and chassy design solution are totally new, and can provide rubustness and long term durabily, thanks to 3mm side ears steel and the use of all parts zinc plated steel. The coating is elegant and durable polyester.

Since 1984 KIND AUDIO amplifiers have a reputation of “well sounding products”, is true, the original designer Alessandro Cortese (mr. Kind) still the head in the company and with his old school of audiophile continue to take great care of this important matter; also the K series is sonically superior compared to many pro audio amps, they have a reference sound.

Years of experience and patient development of the modulator (heart of our Class D circutry) have resulted in outstanding 20 Hz – 20 kHz audio performance, plus complete protection from normal hazards of the professional use. The most pronounced “sonic signature” of the K series is the great headroom, sailing through even the most difficult loads with no signs of stress or change of tonality.

Front accessible dust filter for easy and fast unit maintenance. Three input connectors type, as Neutrik Combo™ (XLR and 1/4”jack) and 3-pin terminal block, offers professional, semi-pro and installations connection way.

A dedicated model the K4HZ and few others in the K2 – K4 serie have the ability to directly drive 70 V / 100 V distributed loudspeakers.

The DSP version provides on-board DSP. The high-performance DSP is hidden inside and safe against accidental or intentional tampering; amplifier settings can be done via USB Analog Devices Sigma Studio. Locally lets the user access up to 8 presets per pushbutton on the rear panel.

The K series comes with four (4) years warranty, and like any other KIND AUDIO amplifier is entirely thinked, designed, and handcrafted in ITALY.
