Pascal w/ Marani DSP w/FIR  PDA515 2-Channel Power Amplifier AUTHORIZED DEALER!!

PDA515P is a complete solution dedicated to 1-way or 2-way self-powered loudspeakers. Designed to meet different applications, it provides 2 channels with output power of 500W+150W@4 Ohm . Morever the 2 channels can be bridged into a powerful single channel in order to drive i.e. Subwoofers or Multiple Ways Cabinets with Passive Xovers. In addition it offers a full set of added value features such as on board DSP and RS485 connection for monitoring and control via dedicated PC software. To guarantee maximum reliability, the PDA515P includes a highly efficient universal switch mode power supply with PFC (Power Factor Correction) which provides a total 1kW power to the 2 output channels. The 2 output stages use the Class D module
The PDA515P  includes a set of sophisticated processes for loudspeaker, implemented by the powerful MARANI® DSP running 96kHz/24bit [96 bits precision for the internal intermediate processes] and high performance 24bit AD/DA Converters. Processes as Noise Gate, crossover filters, parametric EQs per input and output sections,RMS compressor, alignment delay are available, all in all everything needed to optimize a self-powered loudspeaker. Morever the Clip/Limiter function per channel provides output monitoring to prevent speaker damage with gentle gain reduction at clip threshold, in addition to the efficient heat dissipation system and Over-Heat protection which themselves ensure uncompromised reliability. Furthermore the PDA515P is also equipped with a Dynamic Loudness function and an useful Pink/White noise generator. All setup parameters for input mixing, DSP features and the limiter setting are accessible by using the remote PC software.
