Thread-topic: [CRTech] AM Audio Processors

I just installed an Omnia Volt on WNWW, West Hartford.  Was very impressed with the price/performance ratio.  It sounds great over the air... at least to my untrained ears...  Am running 125% positive modulation.  According to Omnia, the NRSC mask is built-in, and you cannot enable/disable it.  There is no internal metering that will SHOW you the positive assymetrical modulation.  To be certain you're legal, you must have an external mod monitor either built into the transmitter or on the RF sample output.

 

We're using an Omnia 9 on KTIS AM, Minneapolis.  Was not too thrilled with the original factory presets (this is probably a 3-4 year old unit), they were just way too crunchy/punchy/distorted to my ears... so it was our backup processor for quite a while.  Recently, Omnia released a big package of additional AM factory presets, as well as integrating those presets into a big overall software update for the Omnia 9.  That package of presets included one called "Talk Aggressive".  Despite the name, I've found it extremely clean and very good sounding!  Since I got this new preset dialed in, the Omnia 9 has taken the role of "main"...  our Optimod 9200 Digital is now the backup.

 

Thanks,

Brian

I'm considering replacing or possibly refurbishing my AM audio processor. Has anyone had experience using or testing the Inovonics Novia 236 AM processor on a live station?

 

The Orban 9300 is tempting but so much more money. Has anyone had experience with this one? I hear that it's good.

 

Thanks,
