The new Digital Loudspeaker Controlled TECNARE DP-2696 is high performance and user-friendly signal processor for loudspeaker system. The DP-Series supplies generous amounts of signal processing capability and a wide variety of crossover shapes, providing processing of 2 input for up to stereo 3-way or mono 6-way configurations.
On each input: Gain, Hi and Lo pass filters, Hi and Lo shelving, 6 band PEQ and delay. On each output: Gain, Crossovers, Hi and Lo shelving, 6 PEQ, phase reverse, delay and limiter.
The DP2696 is capable of crossovers up to 8th order (48dB/Octave). In addition to the usual Butterworth, Linkwitz-Riley and Bessel filter shapes, the DP2696 provides access to Hardman crossover filtering, a technique we are proud to have introduced to the industry. Hardman filters produce much steeper cutoff slopes for a given order than conventional crossover alignments, without any additional group delay. This allows a lower order filter to be used without sacrificing cut-off characteristics, but with smoother group delay and less severe phase penalties, giving a more natural sound. Hardman filters also provide identical phase characteristics between adjacent bands (like Linkwitz-Riley), so the polar performance is rock steady.
The Hardman high-pass and low-pass filter are particularly avantgarde and enable the use to do very selective cuts (with high slopes) without introducing phase rotation, thus allowing the design of very accurate crossovers.
The DP2696 uses 24-bits – 96kHz sampling rate, Burr-Brown analogue-to-digital converter, the renowned Wolfson multi-bit digital-toanalogue converter, and a powerful 3rd generation SHARC Digital signal Processor (DSP). All this adds up to deliver the ultimate in sonic transparency and a stunning open natural sound quality
The DP-2696 processor may be controlled comprehensively from their front panel or by using the proper software application, via the RS232 port or an USB adapter. Option Ethernet interface offers networking of several units.
PCC│Net card are available to put a network and remotely manage processing racks for several equipment.
