Harbinger Pro Audio has announced the introduction of the new MüV Series of portable PA systems.

Harbinger MüV Series

Harbinger MüV Series Portable PA systems are an easy-to-use, affordable solution for smaller performances, presentations, and rehearsals. Designed with small to mid-sized venues in mind, the Harbinger MüV systems deliver complete compact PA solutions for singer/songwriters, presenters, small theater productions, mobile DJs, instructors, and other casual performance applications.

The Harbinger M60 and M120 are full-featured systems including four-channel powered mixers with professional quality loudspeakers for natural sound and full-range musical performance. Both models offer four microphone/instrument inputs with individual volume controls, as well as an Aux input for connecting MP3 players for integrating music or backing tracks.

The MüV M60 PA system features a 60 Watt powered mixer with two 10-inch two-way loudspeaker cabinets. The larger M120 offers 120 Watts of power, with a pair of 12-inch two-way speakers with high frequency compression drivers. Both systems deliver crystal clear, full-range musical performance, with integrated two-band EQ and digital delay. The M120 also includes a three-band Master EQ and Clip LED. And all MüV systems are equipped with extra features including FX send and Record Out for added convenience and maximum versatility.

“For most musicians and performers, smaller and more intimate venues can be more of a challenge than larger halls, which typically have their own PA,” observes Harbinger Product Manager Jim Norman. “We’ve designed the MüV Series for the kind of casual, small and mid-sized gigs that working musicians face every day. We’ve made it easy to set up, easy to use, great sounding, and affordable.”

The new Harbiner MüV Series is available for purchase for $199 USD for the M60), and $299 USD for the M120.

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 16, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Mackie has announced the all-new Creative Reference Multimedia Monitor Series, delivering the studio-quality design, sound and performance you expect from Mackie monitors in extremely desktop-friendly, compact designs that are amazingly affordable.

Mackie CR4

The series includes two models – the CR3 and CR4 – with 3-inch or 4-inch woofers that pump out an impressive amount of deep, punchy low end and 3/4-inch silk-dome tweeters that deliver smooth, articulate highs. CR monitors also feature a sleek, curved high-frequency waveguide for wide, even dispersion of sound and a well-defined, immersive stereo image. In addition, all-wood cabinets and custom-tuned rear ports provide a natural warmth to the sound that only true studio reference monitors can provide. With a combination of high-quality components and professional build quality, Creative Reference monitors deliver an affordable solution for those looking to step up from cheap, plastic computer speakers or for audio/video professionals looking for compact, but amazing-sounding studio monitors.

“When mixing audio or creating media, it’s critical that your audio translate across all the various speakers and headphones listeners will use,” commented Matt Redmon, Mackie Senior Product Manager. “Even if you are just enjoying a video or music, our new Creative Reference monitors will let you hear every nuance and detail the producer intended.”

Mackie Creative Reference monitors offer some truly convenient features that deliver real flexibility for both professional and personal applications. Unique to the line, a left/right speaker placement switch allows users to locate the volume control on the left or right of their workstation. The front panel includes a on/off/volume knob with a lit power indication ring that will also control the volume of headphones, which can be plugged directly into the front of the monitors. Great for comparing mixes, auditioning files or just enjoying a bit of music or video, there’s also a front-panel aux input for simple connection of a media device.

“With smartphones always at our side, you can easily find yourself creating professional multimedia one minute and streaming a video the next,” commented Redmon. “With our new Creative Reference monitors, you get the best of both worlds…studio-quality performance, an extremely compact design ideal for smaller workstations and smart features perfect creativity on any level.”

Creative Reference monitors come with all the connecting cables needed for the user to get started immediately. As a bonus, there’s even a pair of acoustic isolation pads included. Used in professional applications, acoustic isolation pads minimize unwanted bass buildup that can muddy a mix. Plus, the pads’ angled design allow the user to tilt the monitors slightly up or down for more focused listening depending on their setup.

“So whether you’re a seasoned pro looking for a compact pair of accurate, articulate monitors for work or just looking for a pair of amazing-sounding speakers for entertainment, Mackie’s new Creative Reference monitors are an affordable solution that deliver professional results in our most compact form factor to date,” concluded Redmon.

The new Mackie CR3 and CR4 monitors will be available for purchase in pairs in August 2014, priced at MSRP $129.99 USD (CR3) / $199.99 USD (CR4).
