• KV2 Audio launches new D Series amplifiers with onboard control & diagnostics

    KV2 Audio has introduced their D Series amplifiers with onboard control and diagnostics. KV2’s D Series amplifiers use a range of topologies including Class AB, a high current switching topology on low frequencies, and consistent power delivery that features toroidal transformers hand-wound in the Czech factory.

    In terms of control, the D Series amplifiers offer the option to set up gains, operate mutes, configure the limiters, or select filter, EQ and bridge modes depending on the model, whilst the diagnostics section provides information on the temperature of heatsinks, mains voltage, real-time health checking and the output levels relative to limiting. Amplifiers may be set up individually or in groups using the new KV2 Control & Diagnostics software tool, including saving and recalling presets, or show files. Configuration and monitoring are accessible either via the front panel or remotely via any Windows or Mac OS device.

    KV2 Audio founder, George Krampera Sr., is proud to introduce the new D Series amplifiers. “Finally, our users can now benefit from control without compromise as well as real-time monitoring and system diagnostics – elements which are vital when running large systems,” he says. “Our customers no longer have to rely on third-party solutions which inevitably affect the sound. By embracing digital technology for control where it is suited, but maintaining the fastest, highest quality analogue electronics for the audio path where it is needed, we have developed a revolutionary hybrid solution that offers user friendly operation whilst maintaining the integrity of audiophile reproduction.”

    The new models include ESR 3000D, ESR 2800D, ESP 2000D, SL3000D and VHD 3200D.

    Constant voltage, high impedance or line transformer systems are often a somewhat confusing concept for professionals used to rock and roll. They are actually very simple to design, among other things because they are intended to be installed by electricians and the like, with little experience in sound systems. In this article we will try to clarify the simple concepts needed to understand this type of system.... Read more
