Crest Audio® ProTour™ Series amplifiers with integrated DSP and Dante® connectivity debut in Europe at ISE 2018
Crest Audio® will be unveiling their powerful new Class D ProTour™ Series power amplifiers for the first time in Europe at ISE 2018. Designed to meet the most demanding requirements of portable and fixed installation audio systems, the ProTour Series delivers high output power, efficient cooling, onboard DSP, Dante® network connectivity, and USB/Ethernet connectivity for monitoring and control.
The ProTour Series currently comprises four models:
- ProTour 8004d 4-channel amplifier with 2000W/channel into 4 ohms or 70/100V direct drive
- ProTour 5002d 2-channel amplifier with 2500W/channel into 4ohms
- ProTour 4004d 4-channel amplifier with 1000W/channel into 4 ohms
- ProTour 3003d 3-channel amplifier with 1000W/channel into 4 ohms or 70/100V direct drive
All models incorporate a highly efficient switch mode power supply and Class D circuitry with full bandwidth PWM modulators for ultra-low distortion, high efficiency and superior circuit protection. The clip/limiter function provides output monitoring to prevent speaker damage with gentle gain reduction at clip threshold as well as efficient heat dissipation and overheat protection for uncompromised reliability.
In addition to delivering lashings of power, ProTour Series amplifiers are also capable and sophisticated loudspeaker processors thanks to a powerful internal DSP engine with sampling rates of 96 kHz/24-bit and high performance 24-bit AD/DA converters. Everything you need to optimize a loudspeaker system is at your fingertips; IIR HP/LP crossover filters, RMS compressor, parametric EQ, alignment delays, white/pink noise and much, much more.
Users can set parameters, select input source and load presets via the convenient front panel LCD touchscreen. A Dante network module enables primary and redundant connectivity to a digital audio network and allows external control and monitoring of the amplifier.
