New York, NY (February 7, 2014)—d&b audiotechnik has debuted its four channel D80 amplifier, designed with control capabilities to drive d&b’s line of loudspeakers.
The high-power density, 2 RU D80 amplifier incorporates Digital Signal Processing to provide configurations for the entire d&b loudspeaker range. Each of the four channels integrated into the D80 feature a signal delay of up to 10 seconds and two 6-band equalizers, providing parametric, notch, shelving and asymmetric filters. Additionally, specific functions for d&b loudspeakers, such as CUT (Cut mode), CPL (Coupling), HFC (High Frequency Compensation) and CSA (Cardioid Sub Array) are included as well as the selectable output configurations, Dual channel, Mix TOP/SUB and 2-Way Active. Both analog and digital inputs and links are provided.
All four outputs can deliver up to 4000 Watts into 4 ohms and are distributed through the single NL8 connector, or the individual loudspeaker outputs. The Class D amplifier utilizes a switch mode power supply with active Power Factor Correction (PFC) suitable for mains voltages 100 - 127 V/208 to 240 V, 50 - 60 Hz. The output capability of the D80 is largely independent from voltage variations caused by substandard electrical sources; optimum system performance will be maintained when running from heavily loaded mains supplies.
All features and functions can be easily controlled via the TFT color touchscreen and rotary encoder on the front of the amplifier.
