Ashly Audio’s power amps:
the ne800, ne1600 and
ne2400 (top to bottom)
Webster, NY (May 21, 2009)–Ashly Audio has expanded its NE (Network Enabled) Series of Ethernet-equipped products with three new 2-channel power amplifiers.
The ne800, ne1600 and ne2400 deliver 400W, 800W and 1200W per channel at 4 ohms, respectively. Controlled via Ashly’s Protea NE software, the new amps may be factory-fitted with Protea DSP, an AES/EBU digital input module and enabled for CobraNet or EtherSound network audio.
As standard, the new NE Series 2-channel amplifiers include balanced analog inputs accessed via XLR and Euroblock connectors with Speakon/Euroblock output connectors. Rear-panel features include Ethernet access for Protea NE software control, DC voltage level control using an Ashly WR-1 wall-mount remote or equivalent, as well as remote power standby, plus switches for bridged mono mode, input sensitivity (26 dB, 36 dB or 1.4 V) and an 80 Hz high-pass filter. Balanced analog aux outputs on XLR and Euroblock connectors provide buffered signals matching the inputs.
