M-Audio has announced the immediate availability of its new AV32.1 2.1-channel powered sound system.

M-Audio AV32.1

The AV32.1 is a complete high-performance sound system that delivers deep, lifelike, full-range sound. It is ideal for use with TVs, computers, portable music players or any device that has analogue, digital (optical) or TRS outputs.

The system is comprised of two compact speakers and a powerful subwoofer. The speakers each use a 3-inch high-definition polypropylene driver for accurate midrange reproduction and a 1-inch softdome tweeter in M-Audio’s exclusive OptImage™ IV Waveguide for pristine highs and precise acoustic imaging.

The AV32.1 subwoofer has an internal custom-equalised amplifier with a down-firing, long-excursion 6 ½-inch woofer that delivers high-impact bass down to 36Hz (-3dB). Completing the system is a compact and convenient remote control that powers the system on or off, adjusts the volume and provides a sub bypass option.

This is also an ideal system for monitoring and mixdown use. The two speakers deliver musically-accurate, detailed sound so the user can clearly hear what’s on the recording, while the subwoofer
bypass mode on the remote control enables the user to do an instant A-B check of how the recording sounds with or without a subwoofer.

“The AV32.1 delivers a level of rich, lifelike acoustic performance from a compact form factor that is just absolutely unexpected at this price point,” said JC Sutherland, Product Manager for M-Audio. “Add to that the AV32.1’s full complement of connection options and its remote control with subwoofer bypass and you have a sound system that really fills an urgent need for a high-performance, affordable sound system that is well-suited to both small recording studios and home entertainment use.”
