Amate Audio Unveils LMS608

Amate Audio LMS608 ‘next generation’ loudspeaker management processor.

Following the initial introduction of its all-new LMS series 64-bit loudspeaker management processor in Q4 2019, with the LMS206 dual input / six output device, Amate Audio has launched the more extensive and powerful LMS608.

A completely new and robust next generation loudspeaker management processor platform employing a 64-bit DSP architecture. LMS provides continuous ‘round the clock’ operation and uncompromising performance in the most adverse application environments. Fully configurable, each input is assignable to any output; with two crossovers – with selectable Butterworth, Linkwitz-Riley and Bessel filtering – and independent compressor/ limiter settings available on each output.

With four analogue inputs, a two channel AES/EBU digital input, and eight analogue outputs, all on balanced XLRs, the 1U 19” rackmount LMS608 offers advanced system configuration capabilities – comparable with Amate Audio’s NÍTID active loudspeaker series – for the management of large-scale passive sound reinforcement systems for touring, event or fixed installation applications. Higher performing 24 bit ADDA convertors on the units I/Os gives the LMS608 even higher sound quality than its less powerful sibling.

In addition to 80 user-programmable password protectable memory presets, 20 powerful ‘factory’ presets, the result of intensive in-house R&D, offer unique system engineering efficiencies in enabling near-instantaneous system control configurations for different combinations of different passive NÍTID, Key, and a number of Xcellence series, loudspeaker systems in the most regularly encountered applications. Ethernet or USB (Windows and Mac OS) remote operation is available with Amate Audio DSPLink software.

“The LMS608 greatly extends the advanced capabilities of our new loudspeaker management platform to a wider range of more complex applications,” stated International Sales Manager Jordi Amate, “In terms of power, quality, reliability and ease of operability there is little in the market to challenge it.”
