Advanced 8-channel dual 3G/HD/SD-SDI embedded Dolby D, E and AES audio processor with metering and alternate undecoded Dolby, AES and analog inputs. Mix, monitor, meter and convert to AES and analog.

The Wohler AMP2-E8-MDA is a legend in broadcast audio. Reliable, familiar and powerful, E8’s are the benchmark for  Dolby-capable, 8-channel audio monitoring. While its 2-unit chassis is ideal for the best sound quality, we also realize space is often at a premium.

Thus we introduce the AMP1-E8-MDA, complete with everything you know and love about the E8 series, with the addition of 3G capability. The AMP1-E8 Series multi-format audio monitors provide a complete, exceptionally high-quality audio monitoring solution capable of monitoring audio from Dolby E, Dolby Digital (AC-3), HD-SDI, SD-SDI, AES/EBU, and analog signal sources.

The sleek design provides optimally focused sound for operators in an ultra near field environment (1 to 3 ft.) and offers performance comparable to that of many separate monitor pairs without installation hassles and awkward speaker placements. This enables a higher SPL for the operator while reducing overall ambient sound and adjacent bay crosstalk.

The AMP1-E8’s are suited to providing high quality, multi-channel, digital and analog audio monitoring in a compact unit. Ideal for use in VTR bays, mobile production vehicles, teleconferencing installations, multimedia systems, satellite links, cable TV facilities, and on-air radio studios.
