LAB GRUPPEN IPX 1200_US1 Compact 1200W 2-Channel DSP Controlled Power Amplifier (IPX 1200_US1)

The IPX 1200 amplifier offers a blend of high power density, cost competitiveness, and energy efficiency, making it an excellent choice for various applications. Its compact yet powerful design makes it suitable for permanent installations, portable corporate AV systems, or live PA setups where space, power, and performance are crucial factors.

Muscles Meet Mind

The IPX 1200 is more than just raw power—it's equipped with a cutting-edge DSP engine, providing not only reliable 2 x 600 W at 4 ohms but also an array of features for optimal performance. The DSP boasts up to 40 real-time, multi-slope parametric EQs, adjustable gain, input/output delay settings, and versatile high- and low-pass filters adjustable to any frequency you require. Additionally, the DSP includes robust protection features for your loudspeaker system, including the innovative software-controlled Speaker Protect Limiter. Configurable through the IPX Controller software, this limiter ensures comprehensive protection for your speakers while allowing easy adjustments to suit your specific needs.

Take Control at the Rack or Anywhere

The IPX 1200 offers accessible setup parameters for input mixing, DSP features, and limiter settings directly from the front panel. Utilizing two navigation buttons, a rotary encoder, and a backlit display, you can easily navigate and adjust various parameters. The panel also includes individual channel mute buttons for added convenience. Moreover, the unit allows storage of up to 100 user-defined presets directly onboard.

The Fast and The Foolproof – One and the Same!

Absolutely, the advanced Ethernet-based networked monitoring and control features are a significant benefit. The IPX 1200 simplifies network configuration through automatic discovery and identification of connected amplifiers. Its sleek GUI, tailored for touch-based devices, facilitates swift grouping of amplifiers. It also offers an intuitive setup and allows for preset storage of all DSP parameters, enhancing the overall control and management of the system.

Flexible I/O and Conversion Features

The AES3 digital inputs on the IPX 1200 offer seamless connectivity with digital console stage boxes, enabling direct connections or accepting AES input while providing onboard sample rate conversion between various sample frequencies. This feature eradicates the need for a D-A/A-D conversion cycle within the digital domain. Moreover, the AES3 inputs offer an automatic fail-over option to analog, ensuring a redundant solution for uninterrupted operation, especially crucial for mission-critical PA/VA system applications or to maintain continuity during live events. Additionally, the amplifier facilitates input mixing across all four inputs, and on the power output end, offers connectivity options via binding posts or Neutrik speakON connectors for added flexibility.

IPX Controller

The IPX Series is centered around the IPX Controller software, providing an intuitive and efficient graphical user interface (GUI). This software grants extensive control over the DSP performance of each device connected within the network. Available across various platforms such as PC, Mac, and iPad, the IPX Controller is designed with touchscreen functionality at its core. It offers a streamlined and user-friendly interface, empowering users to finely tune and optimize their systems for superior performance and precision.

Supercharged DSP Power

The IPX Series showcases an advanced DSP engine featuring a multitude of tools, including up to 40 real-time, multi-slope parametric EQs. Alongside adjustable gain, input, and output delay settings, and configurable high- and low-pass filters at any frequency, the IPX Series essentially operates as a comprehensive standalone digital audio processor. It adds the advantage of two robust and high-fidelity amplifier channels, enhancing its capabilities for sophisticated audio processing alongside amplification functions.

Pro Performance at Prosumer Price Points

Absolutely, the IPX Series presents an ideal balance between functionality, professional-grade features, and cost-effectiveness. Its versatile capabilities make it equally suitable for a range of applications, whether for permanent installations, portable AV setups, or powering live monitors. It's positioned as an optimal choice where both performance and reliability are crucial, but budget considerations play a significant role. This series effectively resides at the intersection of top-notch performance and affordability, making it a universal solution for various audio needs.
