The DP4000 IA 16-Channel x 250 Watt Intelligent Amplifier with DSP and In-Room Calibration is the heart of a dARTS system. The amp controls all aspects of the dARTS system. The DSP, or digital signal processor, allows the amp to fine-tune each speaker to within 0.5dB of its reference response. All functions are done in the digital domain — such as the crossovers, EQ, time correction and anechoic calibration — which are custom written for each driver in the system. It produces 4000 watts total with 16 output channels of 250 watts each.
dARTS Digital Theater is the most cinema-true sound reproduction home system on the market today. dARTS Theater (Digital Audio Reference Theater System) speakers are perfectly calibrated at the factory, then calibrated again to your specific room. The end result ensures true sound perfection, regardless of the room’s acoustics. dARTS Theater is the most predictable speaker system you can own. Each speaker driver in the system is custom tuned to match within 0.5 dB of each other and every dARTS system is calibrated and aligned to a reference performance level.
The system’s minimum SPL (loudness) is either 102dB or 105db in the listening area (depending on system and room) – that’s loud, precise and clear. With most theater systems there are 3 unknowns: the room, the speakers and the amp. With dARTS there is just one: the room. This makes the job of the calibration software that much easier. Once installed, our latest version of Audyssey® MultEQ Pro® room calibration software takes over and the specific sonic footprint of the room is taken out of the equation. MultEQ® cancels the room to achieve the perfect “reference” listening experience, providing a precise, acoustic performance matching the sonic quality of a precision-tuned movie theater, in any room.
