Bose has released two new models of its PowerShare amp, PS404D and PS604D, that are integrated with Dante technology.
Bose’s original PowerShare power amplifiers were introduced in 2016; in 2019, the amps have been upgraded to include Dante technology. Dante increases connectivity flexibility, and provides the freedom to use the amplifier power away from the source, wherever it is needed. It also enables the models to allow mixed inputs using either digital or onboard analog audio connections.
“The notion of a multi-channel amplifier that breaks free from the fixed-power-per-channel architecture has been well received,” reported Bose amplifier product line manager, Ashraf Elghamrawi. “Integrators told us that ‘power-sharing’ makes their projects more responsive, and they asked for digital input options for even more flexibility.”
The two new models join the recently introduced PowerShare amp models that include AmpLInk connectivity, the PS404A and PS604A. AmpLink is Bose Pro’s in-rack Cat 5/6 digital audio distribution solution and is supported in its latest DSP units. Bose's four new models come as a response to the desire of integrators for more digital input options in their products.
