Ashly Audio (Webster, N.Y.) announced a new digital crossover/processor, the Powerflex 6250 has begun shipping, and new appointments within the engineering department.

Ashly Audio has unveiled the Protea 4.24C digital crossover/system processor. The 4.24C is the latest addition to the Protea family of digital signal processors. Housed in an all-steel, one-rackspace chassis, the Protea 4.24C is a fully programmable, 4-input/8-output, 24-bit digital crossover/system processor. Each balanced input channel may be used individually or linked and provides four configurable parametric equalizers, time delay and gain control. The balanced outputs may be assigned to any input and provide a variety of high- and lowpass filters with standard dB/octave slopes, three parametric filters, and Delay, Gain, Phase Inversion and Limiter functions. Inputs and outputs may be monitored individually and can be individually or globally muted. Connections include XLR inputs and outputs, RS-232 (front panel) and MIDI in/out/thru.

The company also announced that it has begun shipment of the Powerflex 6250. Using a state-of-the-art, high-speed Mosfet switching design with spread-spectrum switching technology, the Powerflex 6250 provides up to 5x greater efficiency than that of Class-A or -AB linear power amps. The 6250 delivers 150W RMS @ 8 ohms (250W RMS @ 4 ohms) of audio fidelity through six independent channels. Features include: 25- and 70-volt operation, bridgeable channels, switchable highpass filter on each input, XLR/1/4-inch and euroblock input connections, five-way binding post output connections and a quiet two-speed fan for on-demand cooling.

In addition to product announcements, Ashly Audio announced the appointment of Gene Goff, P.E. to the position of director of engineering. In addition to the direction and management of the engineering department, Gene is also the lead developer for Ashly's DSP, amplifier and analog processor products. In addition, the position of high-power Switch mode supply designer was created and filled by Gary A. Schwenck. James Dean has been appointed as the senior PCB and product graphics designer. A new engineering support position was created to help Dean, and the position was filled from within the company. James B. Franks has been promoted from digital test technician to junior PCB designer/lab technician.
