RCF knows power amplification and the development of active speaker technology in many diverse solutions. Now they have unleashed their power and signal processing technology into a convenient 2U package, designed for mobile touring and install applications.
XPS 16K and XPS 16KD provide extreme power density with 4 x 4000 W Class-D continuous power outputs for both touring and installed sound systems. Each model features 4 analog and digital AES/EBU inputs/outputs, Dante networking capabilities, and a complete set of tools for signal processing, tuning, and routing all at 96 kHz. Redundancy and full scalability are standard in the advanced and modular design of the circuitry. A complete set of RCF speaker presets is also available, with powerful signal processing and routing capability for complete system tuning.
ADVANCED ELECTRONIC DESIGN
The extremely high voltage rail design provides dynamic power ratings relative to RMS power output, enabling the output stage to deliver high, short sustained non-clipping power bursts and extreme signal peaks. This high-power density and efficiency allow for massive power headroom. The amplifier’s advanced electronic design has been developed to achieve ultra-low distortion.
THE NIRVANA OF AUDIO PROCESSING
The advanced clocking management design provides low latency sample rate conversion with high-quality AD/DA converters up to 96 kHz. Each XPS 16K amplifier combines two 40-bit floating-point SHARC DSP chips at 96 kHz, and two more 32-bit DSP chips to independently manage audio processing and signal routing for maximum sound quality and redundancy.
RCF amplifier blocks are fully self-protecting and designed on an ‘audio-at-all-times’ principle, with all fault protection features individually set for each amplifier channel and power supply. XPS 16K implements several safety strategies with fast and slow protections at both firmware and hardware levels. Scalability and resilience concepts are interpenetrated in the RDNet-OE converged network, which transports audio and control in a simple, and safe way, with priority management.
NEW ATTITUDE IN SOUND MANAGEMENT
A large 4.3’’ TFT color capacitive touch display on the front panel provides full operational control of the amplifier. Proprietary RDNet Over Ethernet Management Network and OSC protocol compatibility allow the system’s manager to have complete remote control of the amplifier. Proprietary RCF RDNet control software will manage XPS amplifiers as intermediary between the user and the speaker, so the speaker will always be at the center of the scene, maintaining the usual control paradigm of RDNet software, for both internally and externally powered speakers.
FLEXIBLE SIGNAL ROUTING
The comprehensive digital architecture of the amplifier features 4 analog and AES/EBU inputs and outputs that can be routed easily to suit any project. Dante networking provides audio with a standard IP network that delivers lossless audio and near-infinite signal routing flexibility.
POWER TO CHANGE EVERYTHING
Premium sound quality in a tour-worthy technology-driven amplifier with best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio, ultra-low distortion, and great dynamic range, make XPS a solid choice for power and processing.
SETUP. RECALL. FINE TUNE. START THE SHOW!
The XPS Series is the perfect companion of your RCF speakers. When used with RCF products, XPS features recallable speaker presets that enable advanced RCF processing algorithms such as FiRPHASE, BMC, and Bass Shaper for the best performance and maximum headroom possible for each transducer.
