IQ in CONTROL...BR-100 now in Beta
Based upon the pioneering work on the Blue Sky AMC, the new Blue Rose BR-100 digital preamp provides precise, centralized control over levels, balance, mute, selection of house curves, and various other system configuration settings. The BR-100 is fitted with a rotary control for primary adjustments as well as additional hardware controls via lighted buttons, and a large LCD display screen.
The BR-100 preamp is an 8-channel DSP-based system and supports configurations up to 7.1. Any input can be routed to any output and multiple inputs can be mixed and routed to any outputs. Each channel features 1/3 octave EQ, 8 bands of parametric EQ and filters, and variable delay for time alignment. Other features include 8 system presets (EQ curves, etc.), lip sync delay, 7.1 bass management with variable cutoff frequency per channel, and an externally-accessible mute input.
The Bass Channel has a 10 band parametric equalizer.
The Digital inputs have a built-in sample rate converter, which can be bypassed in Pure-Digital mode for 48 kHz/96 kHz operation. The Digital I/O is AES/EBU 110 ohm balanced transformer coupled. Analog I/O is balanced, and nominal input levels are selectable between +4dBu and -6dBu.
SRO is comprised of two integrated components: the powerful equalization section, and a precision room measurement sub-system. In order to simplify and streamline the process, SRO integrates measurement and equalization in a seamless process within the Blue Rose software.
Precise measurements are taken using a user-supplied calibrated microphone and USB mic interface, and the resulting room characteristics are displayed on the PC screen and sent to BR-100 equalization software.
Corrective equalization curves can be automatically generated and/or manually adjusted. When used in conjunction with Blue Rose BR-100, multiple curves can be saved and instantly recalled. SRO can measure and correct for room issues across the full frequency spectrum, not just the low end. SRO substantially enhances system accuracy in general, and is especially useful for real-world, “acoustically-challenged”, environments.
Good Listening from Blue Rose.
