No. The DSP is an integral part of the I-Tech, not just bolt-on signal processing. By integrating the DSP into I-Tech, Crown engineers have been able to dramatically improve signal-to-noise, and use this integration to allow intelligent control of amplifier operation.
Benefits of integrated DSP:
- Greatly improved signal-to-noise, even when compared to amplifiers without dsp.
- Gain staging is optimized and no longer a potential for operator error
- DSP has real-time knowledge of the amplifiers operation, which allows I-Tech to offer:
Output voltage limiting
Average output power limiting
