PreSonus intros Temblor T8 subwoofer

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 10, 2014 - comment 0 comments

PreSonus has announced the Temblor T8, an active subwoofer monitor speaker.

PreSonus Temblor T8

Designed for critical listening in the studio or at home, the PreSonus® Temblor® T8 active subwoofer complements any full-range monitoring system, making it ideal for personal studios, gaming, audiophiles, and home theaters.

Like its larger sibling the Temblor T10, the T8 naturally extends the low-frequency response of full-range speakers without overshadowing them. The Temblor T8 delivers punchy, musical lows and offers user controls not normally available in this price range, including a continuously variable lowpass filter (50 Hz to 130 Hz) for creating a seamless crossover transition and a switchable highpass filter that removes content below 80 Hz from the full-range signal sent to satellite speakers, allowing you the flexibility to optimize your system for your room and your needs.

While an ideal companion for the PreSonus Ceres™ Bluetooth monitors, the Temblor T8 has been designed to pair with any home or studio speaker, including those in PreSonus’ professional studio-monitor lines. The Temblor T8 features an 8-inch, down-firing, glass-composite woofer with high-density rubber surround driven by a Class AB amplifier that delivers 200W power. It also sports a round, front-firing acoustic port; left and right ¼-inch TRS and RCA main inputs; and left right ¼-inch TRS and RCA pass-through outputs to connect satellite speakers, making it the perfect hub for your sound system.

As with PreSonus Ceres speakers, the Energy Conservation mode meets the European ErP directive.

Dynaudio Professional announces AIR Control – Configuration & Installation Software

Dynaudio AIR Control

Dynaudio Professional has introduced a new AIR Control application for Mac and PC, allowing users to carry out advanced calibration and alignment of their AIR monitoring system.

The software provides access to advanced tools and features inside AIR monitors and subwoofers including timing and SPL calibration and parametric EQs for each monitor. Air Control allows users to define and store custom setups and presets with selective parameter locking, and a special measurement mode provides EQ line signal out from selected monitors.

“AIR Control will be available as a free download, and we are very excited to offer our current and future AIR users the advantages of this intuitive software that easily and intuitively unlocks all the power of their AIR monitor systems.” says Fred Speckeen, Global Business Manager for Dynaudio Professional. “AIR systems are an industry standard, and have been so for over a decade. It is chosen by ear by the world-leading film, music and broadcast production studios, and AIR Control is designed to meet their accelerating project and workflow demands where minutely accurate adjustments and configurations must be easily made, saved and quickly recalled.”

AIR Control replaces Dynaudio Professional’s original ‘TC PC-IP’ installer software that was developed for professional installers. The new AIR Control application design is easier to use and an even more efficient way to fine-tune a complete, digital AIR monitoring system. The new AIR Control runs on Mac, PC and Windows-based tablets.

AIR Control will be available free of charge June 2014.

Dynaudio Professional intros new BM mkIII & BMS II series monitors

Dynaudio BM5 mkIII

Dynaudio Professional has introduced four new near-field monitors, mounting solutions and two new precision subwoofers at the Musikmesse / ProLight+Sound 2014 show in Frankfurt.

The new near-field monitors include BM Compact mkIII, BM5 mkIII, BM6 mkIII and BM12 mkIII and on the subwoofer side, BM9S II and BM14S II.

Pursuing Perfection

Still made in Denmark, Dynaudio Professional’s BM range has become a pro audio industry standard since its introduction 15 years ago. Since then, continuous improvements to this series have been made to further support discerning professionals’ needs for transparent, highly responsive and non-fatiguing listening monitors. This new series is the next step in that evolution.

The smaller BM Compact mkIII and BM5 mkIII models both feature expanded frequency response and SPL thanks to a combination of improvements including drivers design and Class D amplifiers. Each includes an auto standby mode as well as both XLR and RCA input connectors for maximum flexibility. BM6 mkIII and BM12 mkIII have been revoiced and now include Dynaudio Professional’s innovative wave guide that ensures utmost precision when distributing high frequencies. Both of the BMS II subwoofers have also been further optimized to compliment the new range of mkIII near-field monitors.

IsoAcoustics Stands Included

Dynaudio Professional searched for what it felt was the world’s best isolation stand and chose IsoAcoustics. Each of the new BM mkIII near-field monitors comes bundled with a dual-branded IsoAcoustics monitor stand that allows the monitors to ‘float’ in free space. This provides an authentic and uncolored sound that is achieved by eliminating energy transfer to surrounding surfaces. The advantages are significant and apart from a tighter bass response, overall imaging is enhanced and the monitors are able to always perform to their full potential. BM Compact mkIII and BM5 mkIII come with an ISO-L8R 155 stand. BM6 mkIII and BM12 mkIII come with ISO-L8R 200 stand.

A Complete Monitoring System

Renowned for sonic consistency across the product range, Dynaudio Professional near-fields and subwoofers are designed to work together. However the company also considers the broader workflow needs of professionals. These are supported by a range of accessories spanning new mounting solutions for larger studios and broadcasters to precision level controls for the desktop – the Volume Box for BM Compact mkIII, the TC Level Pilot for BM6 mk III and BM12 mkIII and of course the TC Electronic BMC-2 Monitor Controller.

Fred Speckeen, Global Brand Manager for Dynaudio Professional concludes: “We are tremendously proud of this next step in the evolution of the Dynaudio Professional product range, a brand that has been chosen by ear by the world’s most discerning studio professionals and broadcasters.“

The products will be available in May (North America) / April (Europe, rest of world), for a suggested US retail price of:

  • BM Compact mkIII: $629.99 USD.
  • BM5 mkIII: $729.99 USD.
  • BM6 mkIII: $899.99 USD.
  • BM12 mkIII: $1,229.99 USD.
  • BM9S II: $999.99 USD.
  • BM14S II: $1,849.99 USD.

PreSonus intros Temblor T10 Subwoofer

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

PreSonus has announced it is shipping its new Temblor T10 subwoofer.

Designed to complement full-range studio reference monitors-including the PreSonus Eris™ and Sceptre™-without overshadowing them, the T10 is intended for serious personal studios and professional music-production environments, offering a tight low end due to fast and accurate transient response and providing user controls not normally available in this price range.

PreSonus Temblor T10

The T10 features a 10-inch glass-composite woofer, driven by 250 watts of Class AB power; a front-firing, bass-reflex acoustic port; optimized, resonance-suppressing internal bracing; and internal damping and heat sink. Frequency response ranges from 20 Hz to 130 Hz.

The new subwoofer sports left and right, balanced XLR and ¼” TRS and unbalanced RCA main inputs; if both XLR and TRS inputs are connected, the TRS input takes precedence. The T10 has left and right balanced XLR and ¼” TRS outputs and an extra subwoofer output for connecting a second T10.

Extensive user controls include input gain (-30 dB to +6 dB, continuously variable) and a continuously variable lowpass filter (50 Hz to 130 Hz) that allows users to create a seamless crossover transition between their full-range studio monitors and subwoofer for a more accurate listening environment. A switchable highpass filter removes frequency content below 80 Hz from the full-range signal sent from the T10 outputs to the main monitors, avoiding destructive cancellation and reinforcement in the T10’s upper range.

The T10 also features a momentary footswitch (included) that bypasses the subwoofer, highpass filter, and Sub Out. This allows the audio source signal to pass directly through the Temblor T10 to the full-range studio monitors, enabling you to compare your mix with and without subharmonic frequencies to ensure your mix will sound good on a wide variety of systems.

You also get polarity invert and a ground-lift switch. The 15.75″ x 15.75″ x 12.6″ (400 x 400 x 320 mm), 39.5 lb. (17.9 kg) enclosure has integrated, gravity-calibrated rubber feet for stable placement.

The Temblor T10 is available to purchase for $399.95 USD (MAP/street price).

PreSonus ships StudioLive AI-series PA loudspeakers

PreSonus StudioLive AI-series

PreSonus has announced it is shipping its new StudioLive AI-series Active Integration Loudspeakers, the first active loudspeakers that deliver studio-monitor accuracy onstage.

The new line includes the full-range StudioLive 312AI, 315AI, and 328AI and the StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer.

A key component of the StudioLive AI’s design is its use of Active Integration technology. Active Integration combines wireless and wired networking and communications with powerful DSP to create a unified working environment.

StudioLive AI-series speakers incorporate Fulcrum Acoustics’ TQ™ Temporal Equalization algorithms. Taking advantage of Active Integration’s ample DSP, TQ employs multiple, fully addressable Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters to eliminate horn reflections and to correct linear time and amplitude anomalies in coaxial systems. Collaborating with Fulcrum Acoustics’ co-founder, Dave Gunness, PreSonus software designers incorporated custom TQ algorithms with dynamics processing, FFT tools, and performance monitoring into the onboard DSP. The result is a PA system with remarkably clear, coherent, studio-quality sound.

Each full-range, powered, 3-way loudspeaker relies on a custom-designed, CoActual™ 8-inch coaxial speaker with a 1.75-inch titanium compression driver to reproduce the mid and high frequencies. Triamplified, Class D power amplifiers in each model deliver a combined 2,000 watts of power.

The loudspeakers are available to purchase for MAP/street price of $1,399.95 USD (312AI) / $1,499.95 USD (328AI) / $1,599.95 USD (315AI) / $1,299.95 (18sAI). All models are available immediately.
