Design and Performance of a Sigma—Delta Digital Loudspeaker Array Prototype

While experimental prototypes of digital loudspeaker arrays usually use a PCM format, preliminary results show that sigma–delta technology is also a viable alternative. In the test configuration, an FPGA is connected to 32 autonomous true-digital amplifiers driving a corresponding number of miniature moving-coil loudspeakers organized in an array. The sigma–delta approach produces comparable results but with lower harmonic distortion, especially off axis and at mid-frequencies.
