UNICO is the fourth member of Schertler’s “next generation” acoustic amplification series. This 5-channel, versatile amp is a perfect solution for musicians who find the JAM amplifier too small, but don't require the power capability of the JAM 400.
Equipped with a 1” dome tweeter and 10” woofer and featuring an optimized 2-way bass reflex construction, UNICO offers 250W (200W + 50W) of bi-amplified power and provides 6dB more sound pressure than the 200W JAM. As well as proving ideal for acoustic instrument amplification and performing well in Jazz ensembles, UNICO's 10" woofer also makes it a good crossover amp for electric guitars.
The amplifier includes a balanced microphone (XLR) input, an unbalanced mic/instrument input and an input offering both balanced microphone and unbalanced mic/instrument options. Both instrument inputs feature a Bootstrap technology that enables the input to automatically adapt to any impedance. A separate stereo input channel will additionally accommodate devices such as a computers, MP3 or CD/DVD players. A 5th FX Return channel can also be used for inputting line level devices.
The 3 main microphone/instrument input channels include a Gain control for input sensitivity regulation and 3-band EQ, with parametric mids on input channels 1 and 3 and a switchable resonance (notch) filter (240Hz/150Hz) on channel 2. Phantom power is supplied for condenser and electrostatic microphones. Each of these channels also features an overload LED. Channel 1 is additionallyequipped with a phase reverse switch to prevent feedback, or unwanted effects between the various channels.
UNICO’s Master Section controls include a new adjustable DI Out, a new Mute button, a Line Out enabling the connection of externalsystems, a digital reverb and an Insert for connecting an external dynamics processor. Connection options are further enhanced with an Aux Out (Channel 1) that also enables connection to other systems. A Low Cut filter (cutting frequencies below 180Hz) can be used with instruments that generate aggressive low frequencies. This also enables a separate subwoofer to be connected without causing any damage to the amplifier. UNICO is also equipped with a high voltage CLASS-A preamp that has no integrated circuits and No Negative Feedback (NFB).
Amplifiers are available in a choice of wood or anthracite finishes. The more delicate wood finish is perfect for studio or home use, blending with a range of room interiors. The anthracite finish is designed for performance and touring applications, where a more robust exterior finish is required.

Schertler Group brings rising product stars to Musikmesse
Schertler Group brings rising product stars to Frankfurt Musikmesse.
Groundbreaking mixer concept, re-engineered amplification systems and new 500 series preamps feature in company’s 2016 showcase.
Mendrisio, Switzerland / Frankfurt Musikmesse, 31st March 2016 – Schertler Group’s latest “rising stars” are unveiled at this year’s Musikmesse (Hall 8.0, G92). These new products incorporate some of the group’s most advanced technologies to date, as well as heralding an expansion into new market sectors.
Headlining this year is ARTHUR (Format48), a groundbreaking modular mixer that can be designed and built by the user. The mixer is created from a choice of eight different Class A input/output modules, which can be combined in virtually any order and quantity. Arthur’s innovative electronic design is notable for its absence of negative feedback (NFB) from input to output. This results in ultra-fast response and a natural attack. All circuits are built using discrete components and pure high-voltage DC-amps (without any capacitors in the signal path), offering 30dB headroom and low noise, as well as unparalleled stability, warmth and transparency. Combining the modules is a straightforward process, with the user able to change the unit sequence, or add further units at any time. ARTHUR is scheduled for release in summer 2016.
Supporting products include TIM and TOM, two high-performance, active analogue 2.1 amplification systems, re-engineered for professional use from SR Technology’s original Pocket Series. Each system includes a powerful active subwoofer and two passive satellites. The subs are constructed using BJT technology, which utilizes a linear power supply for excellent bass response and efficient stereo effect. TOM (formerly Pocket 2) has an increased power capability of 1000W. Sub levels on both systems can be adjusted from -7dB to +2dB. A new Mono/Stereo switch has also been added. In each system, the robustly constructed satellites are supplied directly by the sub. All satellites contain a passive crossover featuring a custom coil. For safe, easy transportation, insulated padded bags can be separately purchased for both systems. TIM and TOM will be available in wood or anthracite grey finishes.
Bringing a new pro audio focus to the line-up is Schertler’s recently released YELLOW MIC500 microphone preamp range. Available in three different models - MIC500-TL, -TO and –TT – the single channel, full Class A, 500 series preamps are specially designed for user installation in commercially available Lunchbox racks. The preamps feature intuitive controls and discrete electronics, with no Negative Feedback applied for faster attack and improved slew rate.
UNICO, the fourth member of Schertler’s “next generation” acoustic amplifier series, is a re-engineered 5-channel version of the company’s original Unico Classic/Deluxe amps, with increased power output (250W) and a new 10” subwoofer (previously 8”). Unico features a Class A preamp with no integrated circuits or negative feedback.
