ISE 2018: Dynacord reveals IPX series power amplifiers for fixed install

Dynacord has announced the launch of its new IPX series multi-channel power amplifiers for mid- to large-sized permanent installations at the ISE Show in Amsterdam this week.

Incorporating OMNEO IP networking architecture and audio performance, IPX series utilises several proprietary amplifier technologies developed by Dynacord engineering.

The IPX series comprises three 4-channel models and one 8-channel model, offering a power density of 5 kW, 10 kW and 20 kW from a single amplifier with all channels driven. The amplifiers, which enable high energy savings via the new Dynacord Eco Rail mode, are designed for a wide range of fixed install venues, from concert halls, art centres, theatres, and houses of worship to distributed sound systems in stadiums and entertainment centres.

Flexibility is ensured by several power drive options utilising Dynacord’s VLD (Variable Load Drive) technology as well as the newly developed parallel and bridged parallel operation modes. VLD technology (IPX5:4 and IPX10:8) allows the available output power of 1,250 watts per channel to be used at either 4 or 8 Ohms, or via 70V or 100V lines in direct drive mode.

The integrated OMNEO interface with a primary and secondary port allows the use of eight channels from a Dante audio network, while remote and supervision parameters run on OCA protocol (AES70), open for third-party integration. Redundancy options include glitch-free and RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) to suit individual requirements and existing infrastructure.

The IPX series offers 96 kHz high-resolution DSP, internal analogue-to-digital conversion with ultra-low latency, and a solid signal-to-noise ratio. The three DSP blocks are split into user, array and speaker processing controls, each featuring a wide range of equalisation, delay, level options and asymmetric filters. Complete remote control and supervision is available via the IRIS-Net software and allows the IPX series to be integrated into both existing and new installations.
