Expands native amplifiers portfolio with new networking features
QSC announces the global availability of the new DPA-Q Series network power amplifiers in four- and eight-channel models. The new DPA-Q Series amplifiers unite the QSC legacy of robust power amplifiers, advancements in high-efficiency output devices, and native network transport, plus the control and monitoring capabilities of the Q-SYS Ecosystem.
“The addition of DPA-Q amplifiers to a Q-SYS design is an excellent example of a native ecosystem approach to network design,” says Barry Ferrell, Vice President, Cinema Product Development and Strategy. “Technicians can take advantage of next-generation amplifier design, while also utilizing the native signature features and technologies QSC is known for, such as Intrinsic Correction. This native approach can greatly reduce installation and setup time, while also maximizing performance across the entire system, enabling unforgettable movie-going experiences.”
The amplifiers include new features and performance improvements compared to the original DPA-Q Series introduced six years ago. They use a highly efficient, Class-D hybrid powertrain design built upon the reliable PL380 PowerLight™ amplifier platform. New design features include two QSC amplifier innovations – FlexAmp™ and FAST (Flexible Amplifier Summing Technology™), that combine to offer far more flexibility in output deployment.
Founded over five decades ago, QSC is a globally-recognized leader in the design, engineering and manufacture of award-winning high-performance loudspeakers, digital mixers, power amplifiers, audio processors, digital cinema solutions, and the Q-SYS™ software-based audio, video and control platform.
