Adamson bets on AVB for networked CS-Series

Adamson Systems Engineering launched CS-Series loudspeakers, adding networking to its S-Series via the Milan-ready AVB connectivity.

The rack mounted loudspeakers have onboard amplification and DSP and come with dedicated CS software.

Standalone products are available, or CS-Series can be purchased as an upgrade to existing S-Series enclosures. 

The CS-Series comprises the CS7 two-way, full-range array enclosure; CS7p point-source enclosure; and companion CS118 subwoofer, along with the sub-compact CS10 two-way, full-range array enclosure; CS10n narrow-dispersion array enclosure; CS10p point-source cabinet; and companion CS119 subwoofer.

CS-Series loudspeakers feature the same form factors as their S-Series counterparts, and their fully compatible sonic signatures are uniform with the S-Series and IS-Series.

A CS Upgrade Kit allows any existing S-Series cabinets to be converted to CS models by removing four screws, connecting the CS Jackplate with the provided wiring connectors, and switching the front grille.

Also included are four rack-mounted products to pair with the CS-Series. The CS Gateway is a 16 x 16 matrix with 16 channels of DSP, containing dual-LAN, Milan-ready AVB, AES/EBU, and analogue connections. The NDS is a network and analogue patch bay that allows users to send redundant audio and control to CS loudspeakers on a single network cable. The PDS ensures that all CS-Series systems receive ample power, regardless of region, and also allows the user to monitor consumption data, both per power output as well as overall draw. The CS Bridge is designed to replace existing network infrastructure in Adamson's E-Rack, allowing users to integrate the CS-Series into their existing inventories by converting dual-LAN, Milan-ready AVB signal to AES/EBU, while also offering six channels of DSP per unit.

CS software supports design, deployment, control, and monitoring for mobile and installed environments.
