and improved! The AMP2-S8-DA multi-format audio monitor is a complete,
exceptionally high quality audio monitoring solution capable of
monitoring audio from AES/EBU and analog signal sources.
The unit is two rack-spaces in height (2RU) and installs into an industry standard 19" wide rack.
A significant feature of the unit is the ability to process and
monitor up to eight channels from two sets of four AES/EBU signal pairs
(balanced and unbalanced) or eight balanced analog channels.
Eight high-resolution 53-segment tri-color LED bargraph audio level
meters provide accurate and instantaneous visual level monitoring at a
A convenient high-contrast LCD display on the front panel shows the
user settings and status (as currently selected), type of signal,
channel selection, mute status, and alternately, phase/correlation.
Input presets may be configured and easily recalled by the user.
The unique acoustic design of the AMP2-S8-DA provides optimally
focused sound in an Ultra Near Field tm (1 to 3 feet) environment,
which allows higher SPL for the operator while reducing overall ambient
sound and adjacent bay crosstalk.
The audio amplifier section features five high performance
transducers driven by three power amplifiers: two amplifier/driver
combinations handle midrange and high frequency information in stereo
(left and right speakers), while the third center channel reproduces
information below the 500 Hz crossover point (woofer speaker).
Output limiter circuits are incorporated to protect the speakers, and
extensive magnetic shielding allows placement immediately adjacent to
magnetically sensitive equipment, such as video monitors.
