The high voltage can also be used for power sharing between channels for applications such as bi-amped loudspeakers or subwoofers with passive tops.

Each model features group controllable advanced EQ to let users equalize the multiple amplifiers in a chain, as well as a robust present library with FIR processing. Each amplifier platform in the T Series is fully operable from the front panel display, ensuring ease of set up and control.
