      WilliamR Hello, William from musictribe here. I apologise for the delayed response. I have escalated your case. Someone should be contacting you shortly.

    We are replacing the tried and trusted IPD series of DSP-controlled power amplifiers with a new, improved breed of raw power and ultimate control solutions. This move is part of a general strategic leap forward that will benefit you, starting…. Right now!  

    You probably know the feeling: You are planning some fundamental changes, but the time just never seems to be perfect for actually making the big move. But then something unforeseen happens, and suddenly everything aligns, which causes you to pull the trigger on opening a new chapter in your life. That was exactly what happened to us – both specifically when deciding to discontinue the renowned IPD series of power amps and introduce the IPX series, but also on a higher level, as we decided to turn our Swedish facility into a dedicated research and development power house that will be focusing entirely on what they do better than anyone: Design and develop unparalleled amplification and digital signal processing for the future!


    Making the Most of an Unfortunate Situation

    As is often the case, unfortunate events tend to occur in quantity. Obviously, 2020 was an unusual and challenging year on a number of levels. First and foremost, the global Coronavirus pandemic took us all by surprise and caused unfathomable human distress across the globe, yet the acute situation also taught many of us new things such as optimizing our collaboration-on-a-distance skill set.

    Fortunately, when entering 2021 it seemed like there was a good chance that things would gradually begin to move back to normal. However, the combination of the pandemic, natural catastrophes and a fire that had consequences throughout the pro audio industry caused severe supply chain problems and skyrocketing freight rates – not just for us, of course, but generally and globally.

    These were the elements that ‘suddenly aligned’ and gave us confidence that now was the time to make some real changes. Transition phases are always painful to some degree, but they are also necessary, and we felt wholeheartedly that it was absolutely the right thing to do – so why wait?


    The IPX Move into The Future

    While the IPX series looks very similar to the IPD series that it is replacing, there are indeed a host of improvements to be found under the hood. For instance, the DSP has been upgraded and is prepared to integrate seamlessly with future audio and control protocols.

    Along with sister companies such as TC Electronic and Midas, we have always been a first mover in terms of adopting new technologies, as well as developing them, and this case is no exception. We consider it as a huge benefit to audio professionals when manufacturers across the board agree on standardization and harmonization in order to make your job easier. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that IPX is your bullet-and-future-proof power amp solution. However, this fundamental change of the DSP design also means that IPX is not backwards compatible with the IPD series.

    Further, while specified at the same power ratings as the IPD series (1,200 W and 2,400 W), the new IPX series is more power efficient, and they deliver more power at lower impedance loads. And last but not least, they have a lighter environmental footprint due to their improved power factor load, making them more efficient in terms of sheer electricity consumption.


    The Collaborative Move into The Future

    As already mentioned, 2020 turned out to become a year of remote work optimization. However, since Music Tribe has been a global organization for decades, collaborating across country borders and time zones was definitely far from new to us. Along with other factors that pushed in the same direction, we decided to make the move for Lab Gruppen in 2021, ensuring that the engineering staff in Kungsbacka, Sweden, is now allowed to dedicate its every moment of attention to developing, refining, rethinking, improving and designing new products and cutting-edge technologies that will help you stay ahead of the curve.

    This means that production has started taking place in Asia, which may cause concern to some, but please rest assured that you will not experience any changes in terms of quality, sturdiness and reliability. The number one mistake Western companies make when moving production to Asia is more than anything to have missed out on doing their homework properly – on a cultural as well as a practical level. Well, Music Tribe has been present in the region for ages. In fact, far longer than e.g. Apple and other huge consumer goods manufacturers that we have all accepted as high quality vendors long ago. It cannot be stressed enough that this is not a new process of change for us, or a first attempt at dipping the toes in new waters – we have decades of experience with how to manufacture efficiently and reliably out of Asia. And perhaps most important of all, we have a proven track record of successful Pro Audio and MI brands to back our beliefs that this will indeed become very beneficial for all of our customers.

    At the end of the day, all that really matters is providing the finest audio tools imaginable, which in turn empowers you to focus exclusively on delivering stellar results as an passionate audio professional every single day – regardless of whether your field of work is within Touring, Venues, House of Worship, Corporate, Education, or other parts of the Live Sound and AV Install spheres.

    Hi Lab Gruppen,

    I have a C48:4 power amplifier that wont pass a signal and investigation showed both cooling fans are faulty with locked rotor. I would like to order new fans but should I make other checks first to ensure it does not have other issues?

    How can i order 2 new cooling fans from your company?

      Nigel67 Hi. I will message my colleague in Service dealing with your case and ask him to advise why we will only repair the unit. I am afraid that only he knows the reason for this. The warranty policy is that a doa (credit) can only be claimed within 30 days of purchase by the customer. If it is over this, then the unit will be repaired and returned. As I mentioned, I do not know what the situation is here, but I will ask the colleague to explain this to you.
