Powersoft revealed its new T Series line during a press conference at the NAMM Show 2019. The company is presenting in Hall ACC North, Floor 2, booth 17701.
"We're setting a new benchmark for the type of reliability and audio performance you can expect from a product at this price level," said Klas Dalbjörn, product manager at Powersoft. "The T Series is Powersoft's solution for rental companies with small to medium-sized sound systems, and it features next-generation processing and networking capabilities but at a lower price point. It is also perfect for small touring bands, DJs and a range of other applications.”
The T Series consists of both 2- and 4-channel models, available in 3,000 W and 6,000 W versions supporting channel powers from 750 W to 3,000 W in a single rack unit. All models can deliver the same high peak voltage and can drive single 8/16 ohm cabinets at full SPL. The high voltage can also be used for power-sharing between channels for applications such as bi-amped loudspeakers or subwoofers with passive tops.
The T Series also includes AES3 and Dante by Audinate inputs, which are optimised for daisy-chained distribution of 2-channel audio to multiple amplifiers with no need for external switches or splitters. Each model features group controllable advanced EQ to let users equalise multiple amplifiers in a chain, as well as a robust preset library with FIR processing.
The amplifier series offers remote control and advanced signal processing abilities via Powersoft's ArmoníaPlus System Manager, as well as onboard DSP. Each amplifier is fully operable from the front panel display, making it ideal for small systems in a rental company. The display includes features like preset recall, gain, delay and mute, plus it also shows available headroom, as well as other status monitoring.
"We spent a lot of time working on a display with navigation that's very easy to understand and to configure," Dalbjörn added. "We have included context sensitive buttons with backlighting that lights up only when the button is functional, which makes it really easy for end users to control the system using the front panel.
"Our decision to include the option for daisy-chained Dante networking on the T Series was based on customer feedback," Dalbjörn continued. "The T Series is a step forward in terms of reliable performance, usability and audio quality. We're raising the bar of what you can expect from a small to medium-sized rental system."
