    B-Amp-01. Programmable, 4-band semi-para EQ, aux in, tuner out, effects loop AND profile programs for all current Bergantino cabs. Pics to come tonight - I'm on my phone.

    It would be great if you could find out if there will be profile programs for older Berg cabs like the HT112 and HT112ER.

    Thanks for the heads up Munji, I'll be sure to check it out.

    By the way, check out the LeFay basses at the Baer booth if you haven't yet.

    Not at this time. I'll ask Jim on Sunday what his plans are for discontinued cabs. Also, look for the NV412T and NV610T coming up. I heard the new amp through the new CN210 and it just kills. Here's a pic of the amp. Note the USB port for software upgrades and additional profiles. Also an Aux in for iPod or whatever.

    The amps at the show are prototypes, but Jim says they should hit the streets in three months or so. They just need a little more software programming.

    B-Amp-02.

    I wonder if you can charge your phone on the USB?

    Looks a little bit like an old CB radio.. .

    There was a guy playing a Stick through it today. It was clean all the way to the highest notes without a bit of compromise down at the bottom. You want clean, you got it. Here's the studio shot of it. Bergantino B-Amp.

    Regarding the cab profiles: Does this mean that the output of the amp an be configured to emulate the sound of specific Bergantino cabs when using a different cab? Does it mean that the DI is set to emulate that? Both? Just looking for a little clarity.

    I wonder if he has a WIn or MAC app to configure the DSP settings..... then upload them?

    I don't think it's emulation but rather a DSP profile to better match the cab.
    The recessed jacks are a neat idea.

    So it's a sort of optimization as opposed to emulation. Makes sense.

    No, it means the output of the amp is optimized to produce the "best" sound from the designated cab. Of course, you can tweak the preset to your own taste with the four-band EQ (with changeable mid-points).

    You don't need a computer to manually set the DSP, but as additional profiles and software upgrades become available, you'll be able to download them to a thumb drive and transfer them to the amp. I think. I'll confirm that with Jim.

    So many times around here, we see the term "digital" being used very loosely and incorrectly, to apply to any Class D amp, and/or any amp with an SMPS power module.

    ^
    THIS is a digital amp!
