LD Systems: The New MAUI Flagship
Up to now, only the stars on big stages benefited from the sonic advantages of a cardioid speaker configuration. With the new MAUI® 44 G2 active column PA system, solo musicians, small combos, DJs and entertainers can now enjoy their high SPL without worrying about low/mid frequency dispersion as well as getting acoustically lost in drowning basses on stage. Featuring 1,500 W RMS and 130 dB Max. SPL the powerful yet compact MAUI 44 G2 relies on the sound advantages of a cardioid column system and enables even more controlled dispersion in the low-mid frequencies. In combination with a second subwoofer, the low-end can also be operated in a cardioid configuration, providing focused public address and an acoustically clean stage.
The subwoofer module houses a 15" neodymium woofer. The vertical array system consists of a total of 12 3.5" neodymium speakers along with four HF drivers coupled to a BEM-optimized wave guide for a homogeneous dispersion pattern. Thanks to its DynX® DSP technology the MAUI 44 G2 delivers a distortion-free sound at even maximum volumes. The use of aptX™ and AAC coding ensures high-definition full bandwidth audio over Bluetooth®, and the integration of TrueWireless Stereo™ technology enables wireless stereo sound from two MAUI 44 G2.
LD Systems: Feel the Bass, Even Without a Subwoofer
If you are on the road without a dedicated road crew, you need a true all-round PA system: flexible in use, full-range in sound. The new ICOA® series active coaxial PA speakers excels equally in full-range, satellite and monitor applications – thanks to its coaxial design with rotating, BEM-optimised CD horn as well as the DynX DSP presets. This is not least due to the excellent bass reproduction of the horn-loaded woofers, making the active ICOA loudspeakers not only an ideal choice for musicians, bands and entertainers, but also for mobile DJs not having a dedicated subwoofer at hand. In addition, each ICOA model can be used both vertically as a satellite and horizontally as a stage monitor. The BT versions enable wireless Bluetooth® streaming to play entire songs or backing parts from a smartphone or tablet. Furthermore, the active speakers of the new ICOA series can be carried safely and efficiently via the four aluminum handles with ergonomic, rubber surface.
The ICOA series active coaxial PA speakers comprise a 12'' and a 15'' version and are available with extensive, optionally available accessory for installation and transport.
Palmer: Professional Charging
Keep your microphones, in-ear monitors, effect pedals and other battery-powered devices operational at all times with the professional 19" Palmer BC 400 AA battery charger. It is controlled by a micro-controller and charges up to 16 AA or AAA batteries at the same time, including a combination of each. Charging stations for two 9 V blocks are available as accessories and can be combined as needed with the AA/AAA charging stations. The Palmer® 19" quick charger monitors the charging status of each individual battery, identifies defective batteries, and protects against overcharging and short-circuiting. The built-in multi-voltage power supply facilitates worldwide use.
Palmer: For the Official Mix
Everything sounded perfect in the studio - when streaming onto a Smart Speaker, decisive elements suddenly lacked in the mix. With its correlation meter, the Monicon® XL provides a unique selling point in its price class that prevents such annoying mixing errors. As the flagship of the Palmer® Monicon series the intuitive monitor controller is the tool of choice for perfect mixing in both home studio and modern studio environments. The correlation meter displays the phase difference between the left and right channel of a stereo signal, thus revealing mono compatibility errors in a mix. Furthermore the completely analog audio circuit guarantees zero latency when monitoring.
The clearly structured user interface is enhanced by the innovative console design. Thanks to its streamline and uncluttered division over two levels, the central control and display elements are inclined towards the user to facilitate more flexible positioning on tables and foster comfortable working. Unveiled as a prototype at Winter NAMM in 2019, the Monicon XL is now available.
Palmer: Active Studio Monitors
Palmer® also shows the STUDIMON 5, an active 5-inch studio monitor in a highly compact bass reflex design. Like the other new releases, STUDIMON 5 characterizes the new Palmer® brand language and, thanks to their elegant wooden side panels, the studio monitors can not only be used in the studio, but also flexibly integrated into other professional audio environments. On the rear, the studio monitors feature a bass reflex port, jack and XLR inputs as well as a volume control.
