AMPx-SDA Series monitors are complete exceptionally high-quality stereo
audio monitoring systems for monitoring 2 channels from analog, AES/EBU
digital and SDI sources in a compact one or two rack space cabinet.
The AMPx-SDA features two high-resolution
tri-color LED level meters showing simultaneous VU and PPM for superior
level-metering. The front panel features an innovative LED display of
phase/polarity relationships. Output limiter circuits protect the
speakers, and extensive magnetic shielding allows placement immediately
adjacent to video monitors with no color impurities.
These unique designs provide optimally
focused sound for operators in an ultra near field (1 to 3 ft.) working
environment and offers performance comparable to that of many separate
monitor pairs, yet does so without the installation hassles, awkward
speaker placements and "added-on" look. This provides for a higher SPL
for the operator while reducing overall ambient sound and adjacent bay
crosstalk. Extended HF response reveals potential problems with audio
whine or hiss. Electronic rather than acoustic cancellation of bass
frequencies provides positive audible detection of out-of-phase
(reversed polarity) audio feeds. A headphone jack is provided on the
front panel, usage automatically mutes the speakers.
The AMPx-SDA Series monitors are ideally
suited for use in VTR bays, mobile production vehicles,
teleconferencing installations, multimedia systems, satellite link and
cable TV facilities, and on-air radio studios.
