Santa Clara, CA – October 19, 2007 - Pragmatic Communication Systems, Inc., an industry innovator in wired and wireless systems since 1994, recently announced another of its successes: the MBA-136.

The MBA-136 contains a mono-block amplifier that provides extremely clean, state-of-the-art power. It produces unexpected sound depth and musical clarity that will impress even the most finicky audiophile. The unit accepts any volume controlled line level stereo input and uses super quiet 13.8 V DC power. It has a continuous power of 36 watts and a peak power of 60 watts. Advanced protection circuitry guards against system damage from overload, overheating, or short circuits.

The MBA-136 can be found in many different applications, whether it is commercial or residential. It can easily be place anywhere thanks to its lightweight 9 ounce design. In addition, the MBA-136 comes with optional features to customize it to any application. These features include a rotary volume control and multiple amplifiers in a standard rack mount unit.

Pragmatic offers high quality amplifiers that contain numerous advantages over the competition. A Pragmatic amplifier boasts high efficiency and clock frequency. It also has very linear gain and phase characteristics. The amplifier has a flat frequency response from 10 Hz to 50 kHz. There is no ripple in the pass band and very low change in distortion versus out power levels (usually between 0.01 and 0.05%). A Pragmatic amplifier maintains very low and uniform distortion on all frequencies and very high signal-to-noise ratio and dynamic range.

Pragmatic Communications Systems, Inc. is a Silicon Valley based company established in 1994 to design, develop and produce a variety of innovative and environmentally conscious products for wireless audio, video and data communications. The majority of the company's products up until 1997 were designed for industrial and commercial applications, after which Pragmatic branched into the consumer market. The success of the older products led to a strong and dynamic technology base, which helps fulfill Pragmatic’s mission create solutions to long unresolved technical problems with designs that are both compact and energy efficient. This belief has been applied to a new generation of Pragmatic products such as DMS™, CATS™, True Music™ wireless hi-fi system, and True View™ wireless video system.
