Stereo Power Amplifier, 400 Watts per Channel at 4 Ohms
|Overview||Ashly's two-channel NE amplifiers for the performance installation and constant voltage markets, the ne800, ne1600 and the ne2400 add a new level of power and control from the simplest to most advanced audio system applications. The ne800 provides 400W, ne1600 800W and ne2400 1200W per channel at four ohms. Input connections are XLR-1/4" Neutrik combo connectors and 6-pin Euroblock. XLR male and Euroblock connectors are also provided for looping to additional amplifiers. Output connectors are locking Neutrik Speakon (NL-4) and Euroblock.
Network Enabled (NE) amplifiers offer ease of use, full setup, control and monitoring using standard 10/100 Ethernet protocol and Protea NE Software. No special outboard control units are needed. NE Series amplifiers are offered two ways; standard and "pe" (Protea Enabled) with our world renowned Protea DSP signal processing.
The DSP library is extensive and utilizes two SHARC 32-bit/96kHz processors. Processing blocks include Graphic, Parametric, Notch and Shelving Equalization, High-, Low- and All-Pass Filters (HPF/LPF/APF) with up to 48dB/Octave slopes, Delay, Compressor/Limiter, Gate, Ducking, Auto-leveler, Gain and Signal Generators (sinewave, white and pink noise). A full Matrix Mixer with assignable routing allows any input to drive any or all amplifier outputs. Presets can be used to store and retrieve global parameters of an entire amplifier's control surface and DSP section.
Additionally, each amplifier also provides DC voltage control of the attenuators which makes it a snap to control volume from remote locations, preset recall, Remote Power Standby and data in and out ports for connecting accessories like the WR-5 to control user selected parameters. There are LED indicators for power, standby, protect, network communications and each channel has a four-step signal meter, bridge mono, temperature and current indicators. AES/EBU, and Cobranet input modules will be available as options.
