The 5K-DSP amplifier from Ligwa represents an industry first. Never before has it been possible to economically purchase a shallow 2U rack mounting 4 channel power amplifier with this level of flexibility and power density.

The 5K-DSP integrates light-weight power supplies, high power sonically transparent class D amplifiers, full system monitoring (including ‘end of line’) and a fully featured USB or network controlled 24 bit 96kHz DSP processing platform as standard.

In common with all Ligwa products, the 5K-DSP is designed to provide a solution rather than be just a component in a system.

PodWare can operate a single 5K-DSP, or can optionally control a multi-km network of products using the BvNET networking standard.
