DC 8000

32-bit digital 4-in/8-out speaker management system

The DC8000 is a digital 4-in / 8-out speaker management matrix system with an internal resolution of 32 bit and 96 kHz sampling rate. The DC8000 is equipped with 4 analog and digital (AES/EBU© format) inputs, 8 analog outputs and two RS485 remote-connectors. The use of modern and fast DSPs enables a latency (analog to analog) of 0,625 ms only. Each input channel includes 8 equalizers (with low-shelf, high-shelf and parametric function), a delay function and a noise gate. The polarity of each input channel can be switched from + to -. Each output channel includes 6 equalizers (with low-shelf, high-shelf and parametric function) and a delay function. The HPF (high-pass filter) and the LPF (low-pass filter) is part of each output channel. Both offer three different operation modes: Linkwitz-Riley, Butterworth and Bessel (up to 48 dB/Oct). Each output channel includes a high performance limiter. The integrated flash memory chip offers space for 30 presets which can be loaded via the preset-menu, three default-buttons or the PC remote software.

► 4 inputs and 8 outputs with free routing
► 8 equalizers per input channel (low-/high- shelf/parametric)
► 6 equalizers per output channel
► Symmetric inputs and outputs via XLR steel-connectors
► Analog and digital (AES/EBU©) inputs
► RS485 connectors at the rear-panel
► High performance 32-bit DSP (digtial sound processor)
► 96 kHz AD/DA converters (Burr Brown)
► PC print function „DATA VIEW“
► Dynamic range >114 dB
