    • DP-4896


    • 4 input channels (Analog, AES3 or DANTE™)
    • 8 output channels (Analog or AES3)
    • High quality 24bit – 96 kHz audio processing


    The DP-4896 Digital loudspeaker Controller is a one rack spacer, 4 input/8 output and digital matrix, high performance signal processor for loudspeaker systems

    Two-pair of balanced XLR connector feeding state-of-the-art A/D converters operating at 24-bit resolution, 96 kHz sample rate provides for nominally flat response beyond 40 kHz.

    One or more input pair can be switched to operate as standard stereo AES3, with the option of a Dante® audio networking card. 8 outputs can be switched to operate as analog output or as AES3 (two channel per output: 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8) output.

    Three velocity-sensitive rotary encoder, illuminated buttons and graphical display provide a rapid and intuitive control from its front panel.

    The Device includes a comprehensive arsenal of powerful signal processing tools. Input processing function offers: gain, high-pass filter, high and low shelving, 6-band parametric EQ, delay and polarity. Output processing function offers: gain, crossover, high and low shelving, 8-band parametric EQ, polarity, delay, and innovate suite which includes VX limiter providing dynamic control for passive 2-way enclosures, an Xmax excursion limiter with sliding High pass filter and Tmax transducer thermal modelling.

    The accompanying Podware software is easily installed and intuitive to use provides comprehensive control of all parameters from Windows® based computer via Ethernet protocol.

    A large library of preset is included for systems ranging from small Tecnare loudspeaker all the way up to complex Array Series line array products.
