With eight years having passed since the release of Fohhn Audio’s original Linea Focus beam steering systems, the German manufacturer has provided an update with the next generation DLI-130 and DLI-230 models. The new Linea Focus loudspeakers, designed for fixed installations in environments such as houses of worship with difficult acoustic conditions, provide new features and digital inputs, including AES/EBU and Fohhn Airea, as well as optional interfaces for Dante, Optocore or analogue inputs.
The Linea Focus DLI-130 and DLI-230 line source units house eight and 16 Class-D amplifiers respectively and feature specially developed DSP technology. They can each be controlled and monitored remotely via Fohhn Audio Soft, which enables control of the vertical beam dispersion characteristics in real time.
The DLI-130 is equipped with eight 4-inch excursion drivers, while the DLI-230 possesses 16. Additional new features include password protected access control, data readout from an integrated tilt sensor and the configurable Auto Power Save functionality. Meanwhile, the inputs and outputs both offer DSP functions.
