Frankfurt, Germany (March 10, 2014)—At ProLight + Sound, Powersoft has introduced its new X Series, a system of channel routing, a universal mono, bi and three-phase balancing power supply and a fully-featured DSP. The X Series natively supports AES3, two redundant Dante by Audinate digital streams and analog inputs, providing up to four different selectable input sources per channel.
The X Series consists of two models. The X8 is the largest amplifier in the range (8 channels in a 2U chassis), while the X4 features 4 channels in a single rack unit. Both models share the same power density, being capable of delivering up to 5200W @ 2 ohms per channel. The power supply is suitable for Single Phase, Bi-Phase or Three Phase operation from 85 V AC up to 440 V AC without the need for manual selection.
Suitable for both low and high impedance applications, the Powersoft X8 and X4 are intended for concert touring and professional fixed installations. The modular construction permits the rear input / output connections to feature either XLR / speakON or Phoenix connectors, depending on the requirement of the specific application.
The integrated low latency DSP provides signal processing as well as routing and mixing of the input/output channels. Signal management and processing architecture on the Powersoft X Series is composed of six separate sections: Input source selection; Input processing; Matrix; Pre-output processing; Speaker routing; Output processing.
The set-up parameters of the Powersoft X Series are fully integrated into Armonía Pro Audio Suite, which offers an interface for parameter adjustment, control over the digital audio processing and real-time monitoring of the system performance. An integrated WiFi connection allows the Powersoft X Series to be accessed and managed via any smartphone or tablet through a user interface specifically developed for local monitoring.
