d&b introduces the compact 5D amplifier

Featuring integrated audio networking and flexible output power sharing, the 5D is a four-channel Class-D amplifier with a high-density form factor and a 1U/9.5-inch footprint. It uses DSP to incorporate loudspeaker-specific configurations and user-definable setups from E-, xS-, xC- and T-Series, equalisation and delay functions. The amplifier has been designed to drive smaller loudspeakers and can be mounted under tables or ceilings as well as in a rack. It’s also suitable for the setup and deployment of small Soundscape systems.

“Especially for our smaller loudspeaker solutions, our new 5D installation amplifier provides flexible usability, uncompromised sonic quality and seamless system workflow integration. The 5D offers all the interoperability integrators need and expect,” commented d&b product manager, Wolfgang Schulz. “Its compact form factor, ability to drive small-scale loudspeaker systems – and all at a budget-friendly investment – make the 5D a welcome addition to the d&b portfolio.”

Signal processing extends the level of functionality of the onboard features. These include a range of loudspeaker-specific filter functions plus a user-definable eight-band EQ, which facilitates system tuning. The delay capability covers a range of up to 300ms. The DSP unit has a fixed latency of 1.1ms.

The amplifier has a dynamic range of 111dB (unweighted) and is designed to drive a selected range of d&b loudspeakers while providing comprehensive management and protection capabilities. The user interface of the amplifier consists of LEDs for power, data and channel information about signal, gain reduction, overload and mute status.

The 5D is the first d&b amplifier with integrated Dante networking. This feature allows for flexible system configuration changes and convenient deployment of decentralised system designs. According to the manufacturer, the 5D amplifier improves the affordability of a d&b system, opening up d&b technology to more projects around the world, both small and large.
