Lab Gruppen PLM8K44

8000W Amplifier with 4 Flexible Output-Channels, Lake Digital Signal Processing and Digital Audio Networking

The PLM 8K44 combines a 4-in, 4-out configuration with industry-standard Dante Networking, setting the benchmark for Powered Loudspeaker Management Systems.

The PLM 8K44 is the natural successor of the proven, road tested, and trusted Lab Gruppen touring foundation exemplified by the iconic PLM series, but with an additional new powerful feature set: the ability to rationalize power allocation between channels to optimize performance. Now packaged in an extended 4-in, 4-out configuration together with twice the processing power via the latest version 6.3 Lake Controller release, plus industry-standard Dante® networking, the PLM 8K44 sets the benchmark for Powered Loudspeaker Management Systems.

The PLM 8K44 combines four channels of extremely powerful amplification with unrivalled signal processing and audio management. At the core of the system concept is the total integration of all devices – including networking, audio I/O, signal processing, amplifiers, power supply and connected mains supply – allowing complete control and monitoring of the entire platform, resulting in unique operational benefits.
