The RS 500 is lean but powerful with DSP control that lets you dial in the perfect bass setting for your space (two units shown, back and front).

Network control

This amp connects to your network via Ethernet for DSP (digital signal processing) control. Since it has its own internal web server, you don't even need any special software, just your favorite internet browser. 

You can adjust parametric and graphic EQ settings, tweak the crossover, access speaker optimization profiles for certain participating brands of speakers, and more.
