The Axxent Pocket Delay PD1A is a single channel audio delay for professional applications. Due to its physical design and dimensions the PD1A finds its primary use in conjunction with self powered loudspeakers. Dimensions are approx. 15 x 23 cm at a height of only 5 cm. The water-/moisture unit provides protection according to IP23. The cover flanges allow fast mounting on the rear side of most loudspeaker cabinets. Maximum delay time is 99 m, switchable in steps of 1 m. The nominal level of the PD1A is +4 dBu and digital conversion is of the delta-sigma type, 24 bit, both A/D and D/A. The electrical and accustical performance of this model meets the highest demands for professional applications.
