With the goal of making high-quality sound systems available to a broader range of installations, German audio technology and solutions company d&b audiotechnik has introduced the new 5D installation amplifier. The 5D is a four channel DSP amplifier featuring integrated audio networking and flexible output power sharing — all within an ultra compact design.

This newest addition to the d&b family, which will be on display for the first time at ISE 2022 in Barcelona, addresses a broad range of installation projects, ensuring more people around the world can experience the dynamic performance and unrivalled power of d&b’s technology solutions.

“Especially for our smaller loudspeaker solutions, our new 5D installation amplifier provides flexible usability, uncompromised sonic quality, and seamless system workflow integration. The 5D offers all the interoperability integrators need and expect,” commented d&b Product Manager, Wolfgang Schulz. “Its compact form factor, ability to drive small scale loudspeaker systems – and all at a budget friendly investment – make the 5D a welcome addition to the d&b portfolio.”

The 5D features a high-density form factor, with a 1 RU 9.5 inch footprint. The amplifier is the perfect size to drive smaller loudspeakers and can be mounted under tables or ceilings as well as in a rack, allowing d&b to serve a greater number of installations—no matter the size or needs of the venue.

Its compact 4-channel design means the 5D is particularly convenient for the set-up and deployment of small Soundscape systems.

The 5D is the first d&b amplifier with integrated Dante networking. This feature allows for flexible system configuration changes and convenient deployment of decentralised system designs — once again ensuring that a d&b system will provide the scalability, flexibility and reliability needed for today’s installations.

The 5D amplifier improves the affordability of a d&b system, opening up d&b technology to more projects around the world, both small and large.
