The Marani DPA260A is a 2 x 6 input / output digital speaker management system which is designed to maintain the same high-quality present in the flagship QRT line of processors. Designed for versatility, it is made to provide all the processing and control necessary for both live and fixed installation use. Ideal for crossover configuration, it offers 2 analog inputs, 6 analog outputs and a digital S/PDIF input. The system is managed by a powerful DSP Engine, and it also features high-performance 24-bit AD/DA Converters.

Each input channel provides a choice of EQ with 5-band parametric EQ, gain control and configurable delay. Each output features 7-band parametric equalization, in addition to the crossover filters, which provide slopes from 6dB per octave up to 24dB per octave. Each output path also features RMS Limiter and configurable Delay.

The DPA260A supports a full matrix mixing mode where inputs may be routed or mixed in any ratio to any output. For remote configuration and control, the DPA260A can be connected to a computer via rear panel USB connector. The remote control PC software allows simultaneous control of up to 32 units, allowing you to set parameters and show real time levels.

  • 24-bit high end converters
