Building on its ProLinear 720DSP, Alesis introduces its larger ProLinear 820DSP digital monitor.

By employing a digital crossover in its 80/40-watt, bi-amplified design, high- and low-frequency ranges are channeled to the woofer and tweeter with maximum efficiency and time alignment, as well as minimum phase distortion. Each 820DSP monitor incorporates digital parametric equalization, adjustable via a built-in LCD and editing controls, or from a computer (via included software) for control of up to 16 ProLinear 820DSPs. This allows precise monitor tuning and the ability to store settings for different listening environments or monitor placements. Sixteen programs allow storage of user settings, as well as emulation of alternative monitor types.

Alesis chairman John E. "Jack" O’Donnell said, “In a world where the word ‘digital’ is used in all sorts of places, this is one instance where digital truly does signify great benefit to a traditionally analog product. With a brick-wall digital crossover, the ProLinear 820DSP and 720DSP monitors are incredibly accurate, and their ability to control and store equalization settings is a very powerful tool.”

Also available are two non-DSP models: the ProLinear 820 and 720 monitors. These offer the same drivers and amplifiers as their DSP counterparts, without the added cost of digital components. Both ProLinear 820 models feature an 8-inch Kevlar woofer, as compared with the 7-inch woofer of the ProLinear 720 models. The 820 models have more sensitive drivers, providing improved bass frequency response, as well as higher sound-pressure levels.
