A Class D system amplifier offers an output strength of 4 x 1,000 W RMS, suitable for 4 or 8 ohms. It's equipped with A/D converters and a built-in DSP processor. This unit boasts a versatile 4 x 4 matrix, featuring 4 in-and-out channels. Powered by a Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS) with Power Factor Correction (PFC), it effectively manages heat through fans regulated by temperature. For speakers, it employs SpeakONTM connectors, while ethernet ports facilitate AVB audio transmission as well as remote oversight and control. It accepts both analog and the digital AES/EBU audio with associated links. The user-friendly front panel features a display interface. Its DSP encompasses tools like IIR, FIR filters, contour filters, delay modifications, and compensators for air absorption. It ensures protection against excessive thermal levels and excessive movement. The amplifier also houses a preset library tailored for the manufacturer's speakers, supplemented with 10 customizable memory slots.
Its control mechanism operates on an ethernet framework with a capacity of up to 1 Gbit/s and endorses the Milan AVB protocol for digital audio transitions. It incorporates "automatic fallback" mechanisms, facilitating seamless shifts between digital sources or to an analog source. The network design can encompass up to 253 amplifying controllers, structured in star, daisy chain, or a combination of both. Within the network, these amplifying controllers and computers communicate via CAT5e U/FTP cables or superior variants, ending in conventional RJ45 plugs. The accompanying software, functional on Windows and Mac OS X, monitors component capacities, signal intensities, limiter functions, overloads, and potential errors. This software also aids in preset administration, input amplification adjustments, muting, delay calibrations, and sound filtration. Moreover, it can be integrated into superior media control systems using specialized software components.
