Amate Audio DSP608DAn updated version of Amate Audio’s high performance DSP608 digital loudspeaker management system, the DSP608D adds onboard support for Dante AoIP (audio-over-IP) multichannel streaming signals.

The 6-input/8-output, 1U-high 19-inch rackmount DSP608D now features a two-channel Dante input, via its RJ45 Ethernet port. The Dante input channels enable integration of the DSP608D within sound installations using the market leading, industry standard AoIP streaming protocol.

Dante enables streaming of multiple channels (over a thousand per link) of high-resolution digital audio (up to 192kHz, 32-bit), with near-zero latency and synchronisation, with a single low cost commodity Cat5e, Cat6 or fibre-optic cable. Dante integrates digital audio transport and control data transmission for an entire sound installation system over a standard Ethernet based IP network. Dante based systems can readily scale from a simple pairing of a console to a computer, to large capacity networks running thousands of audio channels. Because Dante uses logical routes instead of physical point-to-point connections, networks can be expanded and reconfigured at any time with just a few mouse clicks.

The DSP608D can be used to upgrade and protect any sound reinforcement system. Specification includes a 64-bit DSP architecture, 24-bit AD/DA convertors and 118dB input dynamic range. With four balanced XLR analogue inputs, two channels of AES/EBU and dual Dante input channels. Four inputs (two fixed analogue, two selectable between analogue, AES/EBU or Dante) can be routed to the unit’s eight balanced XLR outputs.

Features include 1Hz frequency resolution, ten parametric EQs for each I/O, two crossovers (multiple types) per output, an independent limiter for each output and delay line up to 2s (680m) per I/O. Four LED per I/O provide for signal monitoring (level, clip and limiter), while an EBTN black backlit LCD and keypad enable comprehensive operation of the unit. Additionally, the unit can be connected via USB (front panel input) or Ethernet to a PC (Windows and Mac OS) for remote operation via the DSPLink control software, which provides a logical Graphical User Interface and the ability to simultaneously control multiple units. There is on-board Memory storage for 80 presets and password protected security lock.

The universal switch mode power supply enables operation with any mains condition between 90V and 264V AC.
