Sound Product Of The Year, Amplifier: d&b audiotechnik D20

Sound Product Of The Year, Amplifier: d&b audiotechnik D20

The top products of the past year are here once again. Chosen by our panels of prestigious judges in three categories—lighting, projection, and sound—several months were spent debating the Live Design 2015-2016 Products Of The Year

The D20 amplifier from d&b audiotechnik comprises the same platform as the latest d&b amplifiers, with configurations for all d&b loudspeakers except the J-Series and the M2 monitor, plus a linear mode. “The D20 has amazing power, versatility, processing, and connectivity in a small box,” says one judge. “No need for a 30-amp circuit to power it, like the D80.” Suitable for mobile and installation applications that require low or medium SPL, the D20 is being called another “game changer, specifically in the theatre market,” with another judge noting that “d&b has been making great products and driving circles around other manufacturers on built-in processing. Four channels of clean amplification with integrated DSP, analog and digital inputs, and programmable via a network? Yes, please!”

Products of the year will be presented along with the Live Design Achievement Awards and the ninth annual Excellence in Live Design Awards on June 13 in New York.
