Centralized sound masking systems by Dynasound

Centralized sound masking systems have been a professional approach to commercial sound masking since the mid-1970s. Even with the development of networked sound masking systems, centralized systems are often still a good choice. Centralized systems provide manual per-speaker volume control, hard wired zones and cannot be reconfigured via software as with a networked system.

ds1042Centralized sound masking systems are made up of speakers, hard-wired together, with all speakers in a hard-wired zone receiving the same audio signal. For office environments that have consistent acoustical conditions, and basic paging requirements, centralized systems remain a good choice. Speaker mounted volume controls provide adjustment on a local basis.

ds1042Centralized sound masking systems are well suited to environments having uniform acoustical conditions and basic paging requirements. Speakers are "daisy-chained" together into hard wired zones using standard two conductor audio cable. All speakers in a given zone receive the same audio signal. Complex multi-channel sound masking, paging and music systems can require large equipment racks containing generators, mixers, equalizers and amplifiers.

ds1042The DS1042 features a digital masking generator with adjustable volume and low pass filter for tuning. A 25 watt amplifier provides power for up to 25 speakers, or approximately 6000 square feet.

ds1092The DS1092 features digital masking generator with adjustable low pass filter for tuning. The DS1092 incorporates a mixer to introduce paging and music signals into the system. A 40 watt amplifier provides power for up to 40 speakers, or approximately 10,000 square feet.

Dynasound manufactures sound masking speakers for every application including speakers designed for use in open structure and above suspended ceilings, below raised access floors and in direct field applications, where appropriate. Click on the images above for more information.

Dynasound Privacy Manager

Dynasound's Privacy Manager software provides control functions for DS3002 and DS3008 sound masking processors. DS1042 and DS1092 models do not require any control software.

Privacy Manager- Monitor Screen

  • pm

When connected to a centralized system, Privacy Manager's main screen offers simple access for making sound level adjustments on a system-wide basis.

The main screen can be switched to display sound masking levels, input and output levels.

In this example the display indicates that a DS3002 sound masking and paging processor is connected.

 

 

Sound masking Manager

maskingEQEvery Dynasound networked sound masking device (DS3002, DS3008 and DS8000) contains four independent sound masking generators. The equalizer screen on the right provides access to the four generators. In the default configuration generators A and B are ganged together providing independent two channel masking signals to be adjusted with one EQ.

Input Manager

When connected to a DS3002 or DS3008 sound masking and paging processor, the Input manager provides selection between analog or network audio inputs. Each channel also has separate equalization and level control. DS3002 and DS3008 processors also provide a configurable compressor for each input channel.

 

Output Manager

output8000The Output Manager provides a matrix mixer which allows any mix of network channels and internal generators to be routed to any output. For centralized systems only the balanced line level outputs are used.
