Dynaudio Acoustics M3A

Dynaudio Acoustics has provided countless audio professionals with first-class monitoring solutions for decades, and their M3A monitors build on that proud tradition. The precision speaker components are extremely clean, dynamic, powerful & reliable and engineered to virtually eliminate common problems such as cone break up, thermal compression and phase misalignment.

The frequency response is full and flat - and with an overall transparency of sound leaves no doubt that M3A truly advances the art of monitoring at high levels without sacrificing quality at more relaxing volume.

The M3A's feature a pair of 300mm bass drivers that are perfectly complemented by two 150mm piston midrange drivers with massive 75mm coils. The high frequencies are accommodated by a high-power version of the 28mm Esotec T-330 DA dome tweeter that enjoys a reputation as the finest dome tweeter available. All of the drivers are ferrofluid cooled, which is a benefit only made possible on low frequency drivers by the use of custom designed ferrofluid compounds applied to very tightly tolerated voice coil gaps – a feature that is absolutely unique to Dynaudio Acoustics.

M3A Main Features & Specifications:

  • Unique linear phase frequency response

  • Weight: 55 kg.

Lab.gruppen PLM 10000Q

The PLM 10000Q amplifier is based on technology from Lab.gruppen’s highly acclaimed and road-proven FP+ Series - but goes the extra mile for even greater sustained output power.

Basically, the power amplifier technology is Lab.gruppen’s patented Class TD amplifier design which offers the proven efficiency of Class D amplification with the amazing, sonic purity of Class B designs

But that's not all...a new circuit design delivers substantially greater current-carrying capabilities, and the Regulated Switch Mode Power Supply (R.SMPS) is optimized to deliver full power during long low-frequency bursts as well as maintain stable rail voltages despite fluctuating line voltage.

In addition, the PLM 10000Q offers extreme power density, patented intercooler cooling, a full suite of protection features and a Power Average Limiter (PAL) that prevents tripping of mains breakers.

In other words, the PLM 10000Q amplifier delivers exactly the kind of pure and reliable power that is worthy of a set of high-end monitors such as Dynaudio Acoustic’s M3A.

PLM 10000Q Main Features & Specifications:

  • 2350W per channel @ 2 ohms, 2300W per channel @ 4 ohms, 1300W per channel @ 8 ohms (**More power available when driven asymmetrically)
  • 2U 19” chassis weighing only 13.5 kg
  • Input connections: Analogue, Digital, Dante
  • Class TD® output stage
  • Regulated Switch Mode Power Supply (R.SMPS™)
  • Copper-finned Intercooler® with transverse-mounted output devices
  • Full suite of protection and fault monitoring features
  • Primary and secondary network connections (for daisy chaining or system redundancy)
  • Digitally controlled ‘amplifier gain’ adjustable in 0.1 dB steps from 22 to 44 dB
  • Digital output attenuation in 0. 25 dB steps from –inf to 0 dB
  • Binding post or Neutrik® Speakon® (1 x NLT8, 2 x NLT4) power output connectors
  • Digitally implemented, zero-overshoot Inter-Sample Voltage Peak Limiting (ISVPL™) adjustable in 0.1 V steps from 17.8 to 153 V
  • Power Average Limiter (PAL)

Lake Processing

Having the perfect monitors and amplifier is one thing. Making them deliver divine audio quality in any room is another – and this is where unique Lake processing magic makes all the difference.

The Lab.gruppen PLM 10000Q amplifer contains two fully-featured Lake Processor modules, each offering precise settings for gain, delay, crossover slope, equalization and limiting that provide you with unparalleled power to correct, shape and optimize your sound in any control room.

Exclusive Lake Processing algorithms are included for Raised Cosine Equalization, linear phase crossovers, LimiterMax loudspeaker protection, and Iso-Float ground isolation.

Raised Cosine Equalization is the foundation for Lake's Mesa EQ and the Ideal Graphic EQ, the two revolutionary EQ interfaces used by the Dolby Lake Processor. Mesa EQ offers asymmetric filtering to match the asymmetric responses of many loudspeaker systems while the Ideal Graphic EQ offers true sum-to-flat response, so the adjustments provide uniform boost and cut along with greater selectivity.

Mesa EQ gives you a faster and more effective optimization tool that can truly match the asymmetrical responses of loudspeakers.

Ideal Graphic EQ uses Raised Cosine Filters that provide better selectivity than conventional filters as they sum to flat for true response equalization.

Lake Processing Main Features & Specifications:

  • Raised Cosine Equalization™
  • Linear phase and classical crossovers
  • LimiterMax™ – peak and RMS limiters
  • Iso-Float™ ground isolation
  • Super Module capability
  • Integration of third-party frequency measurement and analysis via Lake Analyzer Bridge
