The OPTIMOD 8600 audio processor was a success as soon as it was introduced. The 8600 had dramatically improved MX peak limiter technology that decreased distortion while increasing transient shock and high-frequency power handling capability. A significant number of broadcasters have asked us to make the 8600’s sound available in a compact package at a lower price. Orban’s answer is the OPTIMOD 8600Si, which offers 8600 class sound in a single rack unit. An efficient and switched power supply ensures that the 8600Si works well even in a crowded rack. The 8600Si includes simultaneous processing for FM and for digital broadcasts such as netcasts, DAB + and HD Radio.
The 8600Si audio processor provides stereo enhancement, EQ, AGC, multi-band compression, low-IM peak limiting, stereo encoding, and composite limiting – all that even the most competitive station on the market needs to highlight on the dial. Over 20 great sounds, specific factory default formats to get started. Although the factory presets are fully competent “ready to use”, you can adjust them with a simple LESS MORE control. With the Full Control option you can further customize your audio. Orban Quick Setup, which is a guided sequence of screens through the 8600Si setup, is the easiest way to get your station up and running quickly.
