Powersoft DigiMod 2004PFC: new level of excellence in terms of
Powersoft introduces its new DigiMod 2004PFC, a two-channel amplifier module representing a step forward in the company’s long history as an industry-leading manufacturer of solutions for powered speakers. Delivering up to 1000 W on 4 ohms per channel (2000 W on a single 8-ohm load), the DigiMod 2004PFC reaches new levels of excellence in terms of power consumption, efficiency and sonic performances thanks to a new power supply design, equipped with PFC and featuring Smart Rails Management. A new entry to the wide ranging DigiMod Series, DigiMod 2004PFC paves the way for two new compact four-channel amp modules based on the same design: a perfect match with DSP-4 that represents the most advanced amplification and processing platform for three-way active systems.
Powersoft’s new one-input/four-output DSP-4 board, designed for use in high-end multi-way and line array systems in combination with DigiMod Series amplifier modules, offers the advanced processing and Ethernet-based digital audio networking capabilities currently available on the company’s flagship KDSP Series rack amplifiers. Based on the Analog Devices SHARC® chip, the DSP-4 board provides unmatched processing capabilities and may also be used with Armonìa™ Pro Audio Suite software, which provides access to unique functionality such as Active DampingControl™, TruePower™ limiting and LiveImpedance™ measurement, and additionally enables networking and remote control via the company’s proprietary AESOP protocol. Input processing functionality includes delay, multi-layer EQ, custom dynamic FIR filters, and a complete set of limiters. The four fully processed outputs offer crossovers, extensive multi-layer parametric and custom FIR filter options, and delay.
