NetPA Ultra four-channel Dante amp with DSP now shipping
Extron is now shipping the NetPA U 1004 four-channel audio power amplifier. The Dante-enabled device delivers 100W per channel in a half rack, 1U, convection cooled, plenum rated enclosure that includes rack mount hardware.
With this latest device, integrators get all the advantages of Extron’s XPA Ultra amplifiers combined with the power of Dante network audio distribution.
Dante makes it easy to distribute audio from a centralised location to decentralised remote amplifiers through a facility, building or campus with standard network hardware. The energy star-qualified amps also give users integrated DSP, enabling a single device to function as a complete audio system endpoint.
“We knew we’d get strong demand for Dante connectivity on the XPA Ultra amplifiers when those were announced,” Extron vice president of sales and marketing Casey Hall says.
“It’s exciting to fulfill that demand with the NetPA Ultra amplifiers that combine the XPA Ultra technology with Dante audio networking along with integrated DSP for even more flexibility.”
