As a premier the analogue input signal is digitalized directly inside the input amplifier using an intelligent 24 bit AD converter and remains consequently digital to the Class D amplifiers' output. The new technology avoids conversion losses, increases the utilizing dynamic range and achieves a much better sound quality due to a precise reproduction of the audio signal.
VERSIO SD 3: DSP-controlled active PA system consisting of the new system unit VSS 15 as well as the two tops VL 8.

The sound is powerful, the operation comfortable and easy. The standard set with 3.500 W power can be extended for example without additional amplifiers by two monitors VL 8 or VL 12.
VERSIO VL 240: small, powerful active 8" + 1" loudspeaker with two digital amplifiers of 200 W RMS bass/mid + 50 W RMS high power, which can be used as stage monitor, top part or mobile full-range box.
