8 Channel High-Power Network DSP Amplifier

The Director® D Series gets smarter, slimmer and more powerful. With power now up to 100 watts per channel, The Director® D Series are powerful and flexible enough for the most demanding applications.

The Director Model D2800 offers both system amplification and programmable signal processing via IP. Configure graphic and parametric EQ, crossovers, volume control, zone grouping, network monitoring and more using the on-board DSP.

Popular in the M Series, the D Series now feature built-in speaker profiles from members of AudioControl’s Sound PartnersTM program, offering DSP optimized speaker calibrations from a growing list of prominent loudspeaker manufacturers.

The Director Model D2800 has the benefit of operating either as a standalone DSP amplifier or as part of a 3rd party control system from companies including Crestron, Savant, RTI or Control 4.
