LONDON, April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Today, at Prolight + Sound Show in Frankfurt, Martin Audio unveiled an ambitious line up of 10 new products across Line Arrays, Stage Monitors and Amplifiers bringing innovation and value to live sound production.
Wavefront Precision Series is a new generation of multipurpose line arrays designed to bring Martin Audio's signature sound, coverage consistency and control to a broader range of live events, permanent venue installations and budgets. Combined with the newly announced iKON multi-channel amplifiers, iK42 and iK81, Wavefront Precision is designed to be uniquely flexible, upgradeable and financially accessible.
Dom Harter, Managing Director, explains, "With Wavefront Precision we wanted to introduce a solution whereby customers could have a flexible and scalable approach to control of sound coverage. Simply put, the more loudspeaker boxes within an array that have dedicated amplifier channels, the higher the resolution and scale of coverage control achievable through our DISPLAY software.
"This means even at the lowest level of resolution the results are still fundamentally better than traditional line array, without extra cost, and at the top end of resolution users can enjoy many of the benefits that our premier MLA systems provide. This fundamentally changes the rule book and reaffirms once again our leadership in optimised array technology."
To accompany this series, two new high performance subwoofers were announced: the SX 118 and SX218, a single 18" and double 18" respectively.
Next, was the XE Series bringing engineering innovation to high performance stage monitoring. Featuring unique Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology with a patent pending third static waveguide, the XE series is designed to deliver perfect monitor sound with a defined coverage pattern that allows the artist freedom of movement, while reducing overlap with adjacent monitors.
Jason Baird, R&D Director, commented, "The world of stage monitoring has been stagnating for far too long with much of today's monitor technology based on decade old solutions. XE changes the game and the fact that you can go right up and over the monitor as well as further back without significant changes in SPL or tonality improves the flexibility for an artist and sound engineer."
The final products unveiled were a brand new range of LE stage monitors. The latest LE Series scales down the technology found in the XE Series to bring engineering innovation to everyday stage monitoring - delivering exceptional performance and controlled coverage at a price point not previously possible for a truly professional monitor.
Summing up, Dom Harter said, "This is a bold new line up of product from Martin Audio offering our customers innovation and value throughout, while laying the pathway for our own growth in the next three years."
