WorxAudio Technologies, a division of PreSonus Audio Electronics, has debuted the PDA Series power amplifiers, a range of four models providing Dante and AVB audio networking options, onboard DSP and SL Room Control software integration.
The PDA-2000A and PDA-2000D are 2,000W, 4-channel amplifiers (500W per channel 1,000W peak) with internal DSP. The PDA-2000A includes the AVB card, while the PDA-2000D incorporates the Dante card. The PDA-1000A/PDA-1000D are 2-channel amplifiers, rated at 500W per channel and 1,000W peak, and include DSP. AVB (PDA-1000A) and Dante networking capability (PDA-1000D) are optional.
Networking provisions of the PDA-2000D include onboard Ethercon and the included USB Wi-Fi LAN adapter. The PDA-1000D features onboard Ethercon. Line input for all four models is via locking XLR with XLR throughput.
SL Room Control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad enables control over compatible WorxAudio loudspeakers and power amplifiers. SL Room Control features include 800 ms alignment delay, a fully variable compressor, and selectable filter type for the high- and low-pass filters, high and low shelving filters, and PEQ filters.
Hugh Sarvis, managing director of PreSonus’ Loudspeaker Division, commented: “The new PDA Series power amps bring a wealth of functionality to today’s pro touring and installation projects. With integrated DSP and the SL Room Control software, loudspeaker management is always at the ready. Similarly, our support for Dante networking capability provides the ability to seamlessly interface our equipment into large scale projects with ease. Working with PreSonus' engineers has been great, and I look forward to many more system solution products in the near future.”
The PDA-series power amplifiers are expected to be available in Q3.
