WorxAudio PDA-1000R power amplifierWorxAudio Technologies has announced the PDA-1000R power amplifier with integrated DSP and Dante audio networking.

The new PDA-1000R provides PreSonus’ Active Integration technology to create networkable Dante-enabled loudspeaker systems with powerful DSP that can be controlled by a computer running WorxControl (a loudspeaker management and remote control/monitoring application for AI-enhanced WorxAudio loudspeakers) over a standard LAN. With its versatile design, the new PDA-1000R offers the flexibility of being mounted directly into a standard equipment rack.

As a two-channel, class-D power amplifier providing 500W/channel, the PDA-1000R offers a comprehensive feature set that includes two presets, as well as a high-pass filter, temperature, signal, -3dB, limit and clip indications, XLR input, XLR pass-thru, and Dante connectivity. Central to the PDA-1000R’s capabilities is WorxControl, which provides a suite of advanced editing controls for customising the system to compensate for room anomalies, create delay systems and eliminate feedback.

Key features of WorxControl include an 800ms alignment delay adjustable in 0.1ms increments for aligning delay systems and center fills. There’s also a limiter with variable threshold that enables one to control dynamics without a mixer or an output processor as well as a Compressor with fully variable attack, release, threshold, ratio, and make-up gain. Additional functionality includes an eight-band parametric EQ, or selectable low/high shelving filters for each loudspeaker in the system, eight notch filters for removal of unwanted frequencies (to eliminate feedback), a low-pass filter with selectable filter types, plus input level and gain reduction metering.

WorxControl also provides group management for management of multiple loudspeaker system groups from a single Venue preset. WorxControl includes loudspeaker mapping, which creates a custom map after any loudspeaker is added to a speaker group. Each loudspeaker’s settings are stored in its position within the speaker group map. Any changes to a loudspeaker’s settings are also stored in this map. There’s also a User Layer that keeps track of every setting created.

With Dante audio networking, all of the PDA-1000R’s capabilities come with the added benefit of streamlined system cabling. Danto operation also provides automatic device and channel discovery as well as easy-to-use signal routing, as well as control over audio feeds from remote locations and enables users to build sophisticated SR systems.

The WorxAudio PDA-1000R is available now at an MSRP of US$1,780.
