The DSi 2.0 amplifier family, JBL’s first line of dedicated cinema amplifiers, builds on Crown DSI Digital Screen Array amplifier technology, integrating best-in-class DSP from Crown’s flagship CDi DriveCore series to deliver potent, cost-effective amplification for JBL’s entire range of cinema loudspeakers. Choose from three power configurations, available in analog and analog-plus-digital “D” versions featuring Dante/AES67 connectivity.
Deploy systems faster and easier while streamlining hardware needs: DSi 2.0 amplifiers are designed to meet power requirements of JBL cinema speakers, for a single JBL cinema solution. D-models interface with Dolby Atmos directly, without the need for additional processing hardware. JBL Cinema Speaker presets simplify configuration, optimize playback audio and protect against equipment damage. All DSi 2.0 amps feature SNMP connectivity for networked audio distribution, immersive installations and direct interfacing with third-party theater-management and cinema-control systems.
Models supply 4 channels of amplification with bridgeable outputs in a single 2RU footprint, and can power up to four JBL surround speakers with a single amp channel in high-power-density 2Ω mode. All DSi 2.0 series amps incorporate best-in-class, 32-bit/96kHz floating-point DSP and Crown DriveCore technology, which replaces hundreds of internal components with a single processing chip for superior power density, stability and audio fidelity.
Cinema managers and integrators looking to maximize their power investment and future-proof their systems can count on the JBL DSi 2.0 series to deliver robust, reliable amplification in an efficient, cost-effective package.
DSi 2.0 amplifiers are engineered to streamline system deployment while reducing hardware requirements. Each amplifier is power-matched to JBL cinema speakers; dedicated JBL speaker presets maximize system efficiency and optimize audio signal quality while preventing equipment damage. D-models interface with Dolby Atmos directly, without the need for additional processing hardware.
DSP All DSi 2.0 amplifiers feature best-in-class, 96kHz/32-bit floating-point internal processing, which allows custom configuration of routing, input and output delay (up to 1,000 ms), 8-band parametric EQ, crossover, FIR processing, LevelMAX™ limiting and more.
Crown’s patented DriveCore technology seamlessly integrates the amplifier drive stage into the power output stage, fusing everything into one powerful chip. This single-chip replaces 500 parts, delivering greater efficiency, reliability and performance.
Thanks to DriveCore technology, DSi 2.0 amps deliver greater power density than traditional designs: All models offer 4 channels of amplification with bridgeable outputs in a single two-space footprint; power up to 4 surround speakers with a single channel in high-output 2Ω mode.
AES67 connectivity (SA4-D, MA4-D and LA4-D models) allows networked audio distribution from any AES67/DANTE-compatible device and direct interfacing with Dolby ATMOS Connect without the need for additional processing hardware. Models feature a dual network audio port for primary and secondary networks configured as switched (daisy chain) or redundant (star) systems.*Available via a firmware update.
DSi 2.0 amps offer SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) connectivity for interfacing with third-party theater-management systems and Cinema Control (NOC) systems for remote status and fault monitoring. A HiQnet port provides access to Harman’s Audio Architect software, for controlling, configuring and monitoring amplifier operation through a standard TCP/IQ network.
