Linea Research

Linea Research is a UK based amplifier and DSP specialist who, over the last 12 years, has primarily been an OEM provider for loudspeaker companies such as Danley, Tannoy, Outline and Turbosound. To date they’ve shipped in excess of 100,000 units and have become highly regarded in the OEM and technology fields. Over the last 3 years they’ve been developing a new range of rackmount amplifiers and DSP controllers to introduce under their own brand, culminating last summer in a program of extensive field testing including very demanding use at some of Europe’s major music festivals last summer. Last fall, once performance and stability became assured, these products were launched in the UK and Europe with great success and Linea Research now has distribution in over 15 countries worldwide.

Advanced System Processing: All Linea Research ASC, M and C Series products share a powerful 24bit 96kHz DSP developed for high performance applications. The ASC48 system controller provides 4 inputs and 8 outputs with an optional Dante interface.

PodWare System Engineer Software: The Linea Research PodWare software provides users with intuitive control and monitoring over connected amplifiers and processors. Zero configuration ethernet networking, and quick easy controls make setting up and controlling a networked system a simple task. Unique Overlay Groups make controlling multiple devices intuitive and quick to setup. Simply drag and drop drive modules into the Module Group interface and they can all be controlled from one common panel. Applying EQ curves to multiple devices is made easy via PodWare’s EQ palette concept. Drag and drop room and system curves to the palette for easy access from any device as and when required. Features: One click networking, Continuous discovery, Bi-directional control, Powerful grouping, Control overlays, Click and drag curves and filters, Temperature, protection and status logging, Integration with EASERA SysTune, Fast system monitoring and metering.

XiB4 Power Amplifier with DSP: Linea’s XiB4 amplifier represents an industry first. Never before has it been possible to economically purchase a shallow 2U rack mounting 4 channel power amplifier with this level of flexibility and power density. XiB4 integrates dual light-weight power supplies, sonically transparent class D amplifiers with full USB & network control. Also integrated is a class leading 96kHz DSP platform with processing and features normally only associated with premium rack mounted products. The XiB4 also provides extensive fault logging and networked monitoring. This includes surveillance tone detection and driver integrity monitoring. These facilities are usually only associated with expensive specialised products and this is the first time that they have been made available as standard features for no additional cost.
