Product Description

Due to the flexibility of its processing, Danley’s new digital System Controller is equally suited for duty as a high performance loudspeaker crossover or for overall system control and management. Top of the DNA takes audio performance to the next level with new audio converters and advanced DSP algorithms that make full use of the processing power offered by the latest 4th generation SHARC DSPs. Unique to the industry on the DNA are the revolutionary new LIR Linear Phase crossover filters, and for the ultimate in driver protection with maximum SPL, the new VX Limiters. These are not marketing gimmicks; they are carefully implemented, powerful tools that allow customers to extract the maximum performance from their systems, safely. Couple all this with integrated 'plug-and-play' Ethernet connectivity that does not require an IT consultant to configure.

Introduction / Key Features The Danley Sound Labs System Controller (SC48) is a high performance, easy to use signal processor for loudspeaker systems, providing processing for up to 4 inputs and 8 outputs. . Taking advantage of the latest advances in analogue to digital conversion and digital signal processing technologies the units achieve performance levels higher than previous devices. The DNA provides generous amounts of signal processing capability and a wide variety of crossover shapes. The DNA includes Danley Sound Labs minimal signal path design, Bandwidth; 96kHz sampling frequency provides for a nominally flat response beyond 40kHz. Three rotary encoders, illuminated buttons and graphical display provide a rapid, intuitive and user-friendly control interface. Powerful Drive Module concept which allows for abstraction from device centric to speaker based control. High speed capable and flexible Ethernet communications that supports DHCP, static-IP and auto-IP and direct connection to a computer without the need for a router or a switch Class leading sonic performance achieved by the use of state of the art converters, a 4th Generation Analogue Devices Sharc DSP and highly advanced DSP algorithms Unique LIR linear phase crossover shapes giving FIR-like performance without the drawbacks. Also Linear phase HF system EQ profiling which provides perfect integration between enclosures Innovative limiter suite which includes; VX limiter providing dynamic control for passive 2-way enclosures, an excursion limiter with sliding High Pass Filter which retains dynamic impact whilst effectively protecting drivers, transducer thermal modelling provides regulation limiters, addressing long term overload and overshoot limiter governs amplitude of transient signals retaining average power whilst constraining peak energy. AES3 inputs and outputs switchable in pairs as standard, with the option of a Dante audio networking card.


Sonic Purity Independent listening tests have confirmed that the Danley Sound Labs DNA performs as well as the very top brands often costing many times more than the DNA. This is testament to our ‘Minimum Signal Path’ philosophy, our careful choice of converters, and our many years of expertise in DSP algorithm design for professional audio. The SC48 uses 96kHz sampling and a powerful 4rd generation Sharc Digital signal Processor (DSP). All this adds up to deliver the ultimate in sonic transparency and a stunning open natural sound quality.


Crossover shapes As well as the standard Butterworth, Bessel, Linkwitz-Riley and Hardman filters, Danley offers a unique “Linear Impulse Response” (LIR) crossover filter which gives a Linear Phase crossover that has a constant delay regardless of frequency (unlike other types of crossover which delay different frequencies to a different extent, thus smearing the arrival time). The LIR crossover can thus be described as having a flat Group Delay response, and thus entirely free of Group Delay Distortion, this is exactly the same as can be provided by common FIR filtering but without the complications and disadvantages inherent with the FIR technique. The shape of the LIR crossover filter is similar to a 4th order Linkwitz-Riley filter, and maintains zero phase difference between the adjacent bands across the crossover region to keep the polar response rock steady. As we also employ phase matching on our Bessel filters, adjacent bands are in-phase throughout the crossover region. High-Pass Filtering To avoid unnecessary inter-band phase shifts common in many competing products, we provide high-pass filtering on the inputs rather than forcing you to apply ‘system’ high-pass filtering on the low crossover bands. Our white-paper “High-Pass Filtering in Two-Way Systems” explains why this is important. Presets The DNA SC48 uses Drive Module presets, which are defined as a number of outputs driven from one DSP input. This system allows for better flexibility and greater functionality when loading and storing presets. Drive modules allow for a less processor centric and more speaker orientated system design. A drive module is the processing provided by one Input DSP, and a number of outputs, which are associated with one-another by means of routing. The DNA allows 50 drive module presets to be stored. Presets are stored permanently inside the DNA and so will always be available even if the DNA is not being used with PodWare.
