AMP V Series monitors provide self-powered, full fidelity stereo audio
monitoring. These units feature four LED level meters showing
simultaneous VU and PPM for accurate level-metering of all four input
sources from the selected input group. These units contain high
performance transducers driven by three power amplifiers: one
amplifier/driver combination handles midrange and high frequency
information, while the second handles summed low frequency information
below the 500 Hz crossover point.
The unique design provides 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. 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 front panel features
an innovative LED display of phase/polarity relationships. Output
limiter circuits are incorporated to protect the speakers, and
extensive magnetic shielding allows placement immediately adjacent to
video monitors with no color impurities.
The AMP V 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.
