Nexo’s new additions to its range of NXAMP TDcontrollers, unveiled at the BPM Pro exhibition in Birmingham, bring the company’s powering and processing solution up to date.
The NXAMP4x2 MK2 and NXAMP4x1 MK2 amplifier models are the result of close collaboration between R&D engineers from Nexo and its parent company Yamaha.
Since its launch 1-0 years ago, the NXAMP range of controller and amplifiers has been one of Nexo’s most successful and well-known products, sitting at the heart of most Nexo touring systems and installations. The new NXAMP4x1 MK2 and NXAMP4x2 MK2 present Nexo’s expertise in DSP control in lighter, sleeker 2U packages with touchscreen control.
Available in 4 1,000W and 4 2,000W, and weighing in at just 16KG and 16.6KG, the ultra-low distortion Class-D amplifiers combine 32-bit/96KHz converters and 64-bit signal processing to deliver significant advances in sound quality over the already highly regarded MK1 NXAMPs.
A large LCD colour touch-screen on the front panel enables faster and easier navigation, giving direct access to all essential parameters including:
- Array EQ
- Mute and Meters
- EQ Detail
- User EQ
- Load Monitoring
- System Headroom
- Volume, Gain and Delays
A native dual Ethernet port offers seamless integration with Nexo’s proprietary NeMo system management software. Amplifiers can be remote-controlled and daisy-chained via a Remote Control card fitted as standard, with optional Dante, EtherSound and AES/EBU network cards also available. Four high-end analogue inputs use cascaded converters for low output noise, and four digital inputs are available through the rear panel expansion card slot offering optional AES/EBU, EtherSound, Dante or AES67 inputs, all with automatic analogue fall-back.
In addition to the expansion card slot, other rear panel connectivity includes RS232 serial and GPIO ports along with Speakon outputs for each of the 4 channels. Ideal for use in touring and fixed installations, the amplifiers feature a universal power supply (100 – 240 Volts) using PFC (Power Factor Correction) technology for maximum efficiency and smooth current draw.
The NXAMP4x2 MK2 is a new design in the NXAMP range, ideal for Nexo’s GEO Series of compact line array systems, and for the ever-popular PS Series cabinets. The NXAMP4x1 MK2 replaces the NXAMP4x1 model, which Nexo will continue to support as a legacy product.
