Pro Audio Technology (PRO) is kicking off this week’s CEDIA Expo with something big—or at least something slim. The company just announced the DMA-1508, a 1-RU multichannel digital amp with programmable DSP features.

The new amplifier can do eight channels with 2 x 300 watts and 6 x 100 watts of Class-D amplification, all via a super-slim package that weighs under 10 pounds. Each 100-watt channel pair can be bridged to create another mono channel with 300 watts. That basically means that your integrator can deploy the DMA-1508 in a variety of configurations, with a maximum total power of 1,500 watts.

Other features include a comprehensive suite of system calibration tools for tweaking, DSP software, eight bands of parametric equalization per channel and independent channel gain and delay.

“System configuration and calibration are often time-consuming jobs that tie up critical staff and erode margins,” said Paul Hales, founder of Pro Audio Technology. “Manufacturers often make this process harder than it should be. With the DMA-1508’s trouble-free signal routing, flexible power configurations, and intuitive diagnostic feedback, installers can quickly and easily set up even the most complex distributed audio and home theater systems.”

PRO is currently showing off the DMA-1508 at this week’s CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado. The company has yet to announce pricing and availability for the amp.
