Amate Audio launches new loudspeaker management processor

Amate Audio has introduced the new LMS206 loudspeaker management processor, making the advanced system configuration capabilities of its NÍTID active loudspeaker series available for use with passive audio systems.

The LMS206 is the first of a series of next generation loudspeaker management processors, providing continuous ‘round the clock’ operation by employing a 64-bit DSP architecture.

The 2 input / 6 output (on balanced XLR, with 24 bit high resolution ADDA signal convertors), 1U 19” rackmount device is fully configurable. Each input is assignable to any output. Each output has two crossovers with selectable filtering – Butterworth, Linkwitz-Riley and Bessel – and independent compressor/ limiter settings. 10 parametric equalisers, with 1 Hz frequency resolution, employ dB/2 bell parametric filtering.

Delay lines are selectable up to two seconds (680 meters), and polarity is switchable. Up to 80 storable user configurable memory presets can be password protected. 

The LMS206 additionally features 20 pre-installed configuration preset memories, providing operational efficiency with the rapid onboard system setup capabilities of Amate Audio’s NÍTID active loudspeaker series. These provide instantaneous system control configurations for various combinations and numbers of Amate Audio’s NÍTID and Key passive loudspeaker models.

The unit’s front panel features a 2x 16 black backlit LCD Display with LED input and output monitoring (level, clip and limiter). A USB port provides for enhanced external control with Amate Audio’s DSPLink control software for Windows and Mac OS.

International sales manager Jordi Amate said: “The LMS series is a completely new and robust platform, specifically designed for constant operation in adverse environments and with a new PEQ implementation. In addition, there is the system configuration presets for our NÍTID passive loudspeaker systems, which offers new opportunities for operational efficiency.”
