Wheatstone has the AM and FM bands covered with the delivery of two new processors — the AM-55 and FM-25.
A multibrand audio processor for AM broadcast, the AM-55 is based on Wheatstone’s iAGC technology. The design provides automatic, real-time program density control for a consistent, spectrally-balance sound regardless of density variations from incoming source material, the company says. It has a bass management system optimized for AM signal usage along with four-band parametric equalizer, variable high-pass filter and voice phase rotator. The AM-55 also includes an interface to the Wheatstone WheatNet-IP network, a front-panel OLED display and Guru GUI navigation. Factory format-specific processing presets are included.
The FM-25 is another multiband audio processor designed for FM stations requiring basic spectral audio shaping and peak limiting control and LPFM. The FM-25 includes two-band iAGC technology coupled to a multiband limiter and stereo generator. Other features include four-band parametric EQ, stereo enhancement, program adaptive L-R control, variable high-pass filter, voice phase rotator, MPX generator and it fully supports the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network. It has Wheatstone’s baseband192 composite digital link. The FM-25 interfaces with the Wheatstone WheatNet-IP network and offers a front-panel OLED display and Guru GUI navigation. Factory format-specific processing presets are included.
