XD Series


The POPE Professional® XD Series is our most complete fixed architecture digital processor with a focus on audio performance, FIR filters, and digital I/O flexibility. Our state of the art processor provides 96kHz sampling - 40 bit floating point DSP engine, high performance 24 bit converters, precise algorithms, IIR crossover filters, and digital AES/EBU I/O. The result is best in class audio performance and feature set.

The POPE Professional® XD series can be configured stand alone or remote controlled via the supplied POPE XD series software application GUI. This Graphic User Interface not only gives a clear overview off all settings, but at the same time provides you with real time hands on control over all your system parameters. For both fixed and touring applications, the XD series offers you reliable top high end quality sound.
