Monacor DSM-480LAN

The DSM-480LAN is a professional digital speaker management systems of high power capability with state-of-the-art DSP processors and digital converters. It combines active crossover network, parametric equalizer, delay, RMS compressor and peak limiter in one unit. Thus, they are powerful tools in order to control every important feature necessary for a perfect speaker management in PA applications or for developing active speaker systems. Every feature and adjustment can be edited directly at the unit or via the USB interface, RS-485 interface or LAN TCP/IP interface on the PC by means of an intuitively operated graphical user interface and then be stored in individual presets.

SOUNDCHECK 06/2013
“With the DSM-480LAN, it is possible to perfectly adjust PA systems of any manufacturer to every room. A level limitation and smooth compression in each frequency range as well as fine adjustments of equalizers, special filters and the high-precision delay allow for a high-level tuning.”

“I must confess, it is quite tempting when you have the choice of so many high-performance tools. However, you should concentrate on the essential requirements. During practical applications, we used the high-pass filters and low-pass filters as an active crossover network in order to separate the top parts from the subwoofer. We adjusted the frequencies of each speaker component and set the compressor functions to allow for the speakers to provide a pleasant reproduction, even after turning up the volume. The limiter was used as a kind of emergency break, before the limiters of the power amplifiers became active. The complete performance was considerably enhanced and provided a far more transparent overall sound … The result was amazing. Our test showed that the smart DSM-480LAN features enormous processing reserves which could be used for very flexible applications due to the open design with four inputs and eight outputs. In case you require more channels when using larger PA systems, further units can be cascaded. The investment is clearly worth it.”
