d&b audiotechnik introduced its new four-channel, 2RU 10D and 30D amplifiers at the InfoComm show in Orlando, Florida, today.
Tailored for permanent installation applications, the 10D and 30D deliver 700W and 1600W per channel, respectively, and share the same DSP platform and capabilities as the d&b D20 amplifier and the the award-winning flagship D80 (see d&b D80 amp scoops Red Dot design award). They also incorporate two 16-band equalisers comprising parametric, notch, asymmetric and shelving filters, along with up to 10 seconds of delay for each of the four channels.
Between them, the 10D and 30D (pictured) cover almost all install applications, differing only in output voltage and loudspeaker set-ups. DSP capabilities are also ready for further expansion via future d&b firmware updates.
The 10D amplifier is intended for small applications with lower SPL requirements, making it ideal for bars, lounges and conference facilities with flexible room configurations, while the powerful 30D is designed for medium-to-large applications with demanding SPL requirements, including stadiums, nightclubs, theatres, houses of worship and town halls.
“These new devices answer the demands for a d&b amplifier designed specifically for installations,” says d&b audiotechnik product manager Wolfgang Schulz. “The predictable results from our highly appreciated mobile systems are now available for fixed installations, with very cost effective and efficient results. They offer a new price to performance for our installation customers and the d&b sound quality, reliability and flexibility that everyone has come to expect.”
