Adam Hall Group NAMM News 2016:
LD Systems CURV 500®: scalable at will
The big innovation in the compact systems category, the CURV 500® combines mobility, sound perfection and ease-of-use in a unique, and fully scalable system. Here, the speaker columns can accommodate up to four modular, curve-shaped array satellites. The result is an extremely clear, three-dimensional sound – similar to the sound of the large line arrays. The system can also be configured for a wide range of applications: from the solo performance at the party to sound system applications in small halls. With the Entertainer Set, the powerful Power Set and the visually discreet AV Set, three basic configurations are available, which can be extended and individualised at any time. For this purpose, numerous optional extensions are available. For instance, with the optional wall and ceiling mounting systems, the satellites can be installed anywhere, where good sound and subtle appearance are required. For even more power, a total of eight array satellites can be operated in stereo mode (max. four on each side). High quality materials as well as housing options available in black and white meet the aesthetic requirements of many users and architects.
The system is based on the SmartLink® adapter. Building on this, up to four satellite speakers can effortlessly be fitted into each other by means of a click mechanism. Also, the connection to the subwoofer is made via the adapter, which serves as a control unit for the system. The subwoofer is at the same time a classic bass cabinet and a mixer. Instruments, microphones, and also laptops can be connected to the 4-channel mixer. Built-in Bluetooth® technology enables wireless audio streaming. And with the 24-bit processor, 16 digital sound effects can be set within seconds.
Already a single 12 x 12 cm array satellite achieves the best sound results. This is guaranteed by the WaveAhead® technology, specially developed by LD Systems. Here, three tweeters are vertically arranged before a powerful low midrange driver to perfectly merge and distribute the sound.
Highest International Award
The German Design Council has bestowed the “German Design Award 2016”, its highest international prize, to the CURV 500® System for its overall concept. Winners of this competition are selected according to the highest standards and the strictest criteria. Through a unique nomination process, new products and projects are evaluated, which are deemed to be leading the way in terms of German and international design innovation.
LD Systems MAUI® 5
Easily portable, set up in seconds and conveniently fitting onto a car seat, the most recent addition to LD Systems’ MAUI® family impresses with comprehensive connectivity and a powerful, dynamic performance. Providing both sound reinforcement and monitoring from a single system, the MAUI® 5 sports a mighty 800 watts of peak power yet weighs in under 11 kg (24 lbs.) – making it the world’s lightest column system. The ported 8″ subwoofer and 3-piece column PA boasts extra wide dispersion, extended vertical directivity and superior feedback resistance while custom multipin connectors facilitate ultra fast, cableless assembly. The all-in-one MAUI® 5 incorporates a 4-channel mixer with LD Systems’ proprietary LECC digital processing, Bluetooth® technology and microphone, line level and hi-Z inputs which can be used simultaneously. Individual level controls, subwoofer and master volumes enable substantial sound balance while a high shelf filter allows for room correction. The built-in Class D amplification features overcurrent, short circuit and thermal protection for secure, reliable operation.
Discreet and unobtrusive while delivering audio with clarity, focus and punch, the lightweight MAUI® 5 column PA is suitable for a wide array of applications including solo entertainers and acoustic performers such as singer/songwriters. Just add you.
