Powersoft T Series Amplifier Unveiled at NAMM 2019

Powersoft has announced the release of the T Series line, an amplifier platform designed with the rental market in mind. The new platform – which is available now through Powersoft authorised distributors – was officially unveiled during a press conference at the NAMM Show 2019 in Anaheim, US.

“We’re setting a new benchmark for the type of reliability and audio performance you can expect from a product at this price level,” said Klas Dalbjörn, product manager at Powersoft. “The T Series is Powersoft’s solution for rental companies with small to medium-sized sound systems, and it features next-generation processing and networking capabilities but at a lower price point. It is also perfect for small touring bands, DJs and a range of other applications.”

The T Series consists of both 2- and 4-channel models available in 3k W and 6k W versions supporting channel powers from 750 W to 3k W in a single rack unit. All models can deliver the same high peak voltage and can drive single 8/16 ohm cabinets at full SPL, making the T Series a cost-effective solution for small systems without boxes in parallel. The high voltage can also be used for power-sharing between channels for applications such as bi-amped loudspeakers or subwoofers with passive tops.

In addition to analogue inputs, the T Series also includes AES3 and Dante™ by Audinate® inputs, which are optimised for daisy-chained distribution of 2-channel audio to multiple amplifiers with no need for external switches or splitters. Each model features group controllable advanced EQ to let users equalize multiple amplifiers in a chain, as well as a robust preset library with FIR processing.

The T Series offers remote control and advanced signal processing abilities via Powersoft’s ArmoníaPlus System Manager as well as onboard DSP. Each amplifier platform in the T Series is fully operable from the front panel display, making it ideal for small systems in a rental company. The display includes features like preset recall, gain, delay and mute, plus it also shows available headroom, as well as other status monitoring.

The T Series also lets users configure presets. For example, if a T Series amplifier platform is included in a rental package, then the user can limit the amplifier platform’s functionality to ensure reliable and safe performance prior to renting out the amplifier platform.

Modelled after the X Series line of touring of amplifiers, the Powersoft T Series offers the ultimate ease of use. “We spent a lot of time working on a display with navigation that’s very easy to understand and to configure,” Dalbjörn said. “We have included context sensitive buttons with backlighting that lights up only when the button is functional, which makes it really easy for end-users to control the system using the front panel.

“Our decision to include the option for daisy-chained Dante networking on the T Series was based on customer feedback,” Dalbjörn continued. “The T Series is a step forward in terms of reliable performance, usability and audio quality. We’re raising the bar of what you can expect from a small to medium-sized rental system.”
