MIX AES SURVIVAL GUIDE
LIPINSKI SOUND L-3601 POWERED STANDS
Tests indicate that many amplifiers built into the back of a speaker produce up to 15% second- and third-harmonic distortion. Lipinski’s solution is to build its new 600W L-301 monoblock amplifier directly into the stand rather than the speaker, enabling short speaker cable length while allowing easier amplifier setup, especially in a surround environment. Price: $2,595.
AVLEX PA-200: The new Avlex PA-200 Class-G power amplifier delivers 130W @ 8 ohms and 200W @ 4 ohms in a single-space rackmount configuration. The Avlex PA-200 features detent level controls, DC and thermal overload protection, short circuit and speaker protection, dual cooling fans, noise-free soft-start power up, XLR and ¼-inch inputs, Speakon outputs, and LED indicators for power, signal, clip and protect mode.
DAS AUDIO CSA-300T, CSA-600T: The CSA Series amplifiers are D.A.S.’ latest offer in stereo amplifiers with 70- and 100-volt outputs for distributed audio systems. Housed in a rugged steel chassis, CSA Series amps offer a rugged, cost-effective solution for any permanently installed sound system. Features front-located gain controls, XLR and screw terminal connectors. Covered barrier strip output connectors provide safe and reliable connections. AES booth #1225.
LAB.GRUPPEN FP+ SERIES: With four amplifiers in the new FP+ Series, Lab.gruppen again sets the industry benchmark for touring power amplification. The flagship FP 13000 provides two channels of 6,500W @ 2 ohms; FP 10000Q delivers four channels of 2,500W @ 2 ohms; FP 7000 offers 2x 3,500W @ 2 ohms; and the FP 6000Q supplies 4x 1,500W @ 2 ohms. All models are 2U, weigh 26.5 pounds and include Lab.gruppen’s six-year warranty. AES booth #820.
LECTROSONICS DMPA12: This 12-channel digital power amp/DSP processor in a single rackspace has audio inputs taken from the final mix bus via the Digital Audio Network Interface (DANI) bus. These final mix signals are processed individually at each output channel in the amp to apply delay, filtering, compression and limiting. In Bridged mode, two channels can be combined to double the output power. The DMPA12 can be controlled and programmed via USB interface or an RS-232 serial port. AES booth #729.
