Hello All,
I ran into a product at NAMM called Marani. I am posting this in DIY because I wanted to post this to a couple of other threads, as it is of interest to me, but seemed to want it's own thread, so as to not cause too much topic swerve.
http://www.marani-proaudio.com/

The first thing that caught my attention was the layout of the power in the power modules. I have not found other amp modules that fit what I am wanting to do. Then was the built in processing, and the price point. (Price/value is relative, and I have been warmed over for suggesting Powersoft as a good price.)

Perhaps of interest to others is their stand alone processors, and price point.
(Thinking of the Peter Morris threads, and the talk of the mini-DSP.)

Conveniently for me, the distributor in my country is located in my state.
I have already met with him and purchased a couple of the smaller 2.1 modules.
My first project will be a 12" sub, with stereo 6.5" coaxial full range. I plan on a medium intensity passive, with correction from the digital processor.

I also plan on this being a learning experience with FIR filters.

Re: Marani

My understanding is that some of the amps are Pascal. The newer ones are designed by engineers who used to work at Pascal.

Re: Marani

The Marani stuff is pretty good. They do a lot of OEM work for people you have heard of.

I tried out the 4x8 DSP box and it sounded pretty darn good. The software was a bit clunky and not nearly as slick as a lot of the stuff that is out there, but the gear works well.

Re: Marani

I tried to find the info on the website but in vain, what processor model(s) of the Marani's are bringing FIR filters to the table? I just realized I have one of the three dealers in Europe in my city!

Bought a DPA260A last week, for next to nothing. It was pulled out of a fixed installation after only 6 months (reason: too complicated ;)).
Previously, I wasn't impressed by the sound quality and noise levels of most loudspeaker management systems.
This one is very good! I'm using S/PDIF, so there's no unnecessary AD conversion.

Obviously, the software isn't as sophisticated (looking) as Newton, but it works well.
Support of Marani is excellent, with regular updates of both soft- and firmware.Marani DPA260A_2.jpgMarani DPA260A_MP_1.jpg
