Verity Audio Monsalvat Pro-6 DAC, preamplifier, digital crossover NEW


ANALOG DOMAIN

Verity Audio’s Pro-6 Digital Processor is a unique device combining the functions of a preamplifier, a DAC, a digital crossover and a time alignment device. Its design gives no ground to compromise, as per Verity’s traditional philosophy. The processor’s architecture features state-of-the-art ADC/DAC circuitry and total galvanic isolation between the analog and digital domains, ensuring they remain perfectly isolated.The Pro-6 reaches the highest performance a “pure an- alog” preampli er can attain while still offering the best you could expect of a reference digital signal processor.

The Pro-6 includes both analog and digital inputs. Analog inputs are digitized at a very high sampling rate and fed into the digital domain for processing, while digital inputs are processed directly. The results of digital processing are then transferred to the analog domain to be reproduced with perfect integrity. All filtering and delays are executed in the digital domain for absolute precision.

The Pro-6 has three parts: the processor chassis, an external power supply chassis and a massive Verity anti-vibration platform.The chassis are built of thick anodized and machined aluminum plates.


The Pro-6 truly is a state of the art sound-process- ing device. It comes bundled with the Monsalvat loudspeaker system, offering an amazing sound performance that respects the natural scale of each instrument and preserves their respective coherence,  fluidity and musicality throughout their entire dynamic scale. In short, this new and unique processor un- questionably sets the new standard of superior performance in loudspeaker systems.

• Each analog output channel is completely independent and is driven by 8 parallel 32-bit DACs powered by 6 dedicated ultra-low-noise power supplies.
• Each analog input pair features a dedicated 32-bit ADC running at 384k samples per second and is powered by 5 dedicated ultra-low- noise power supplies.
• The analog and digital domains are separated through high-performance, high-speed galvanic digital isolators.
• A total of 48 ultra-low-noise power supplies power the analog domain.

DIGITAL DOMAIN

• The digital domain is centered on a powerful high-speed FPGA capable of 800+ billion multiply-accumulate operations per second (800+ GMAC/s).
• The Pro-6 also includes a 400 MHz SHARC processor for enhanced DSP capability.
• The 32-bit processing architecture (up to 72 bits internal calculations @ 98 MHz), enables compromise-free digital signal processing and superb digital filters featuring perfect characteristics and an ultra-low noise floor.
•The digital domain supports additional digital crossover and digital delay capabilities.
• 3 ultra-low-noise power supplies power the digital domain.

EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLIES

• In order to improve noise immunity, the Monsalvat Processor’s main power supplies are located in a separate external stackable chassis. This chassis contains yet another 5 low-noise power supplies.
