HK Audio Celebrates First Year of Successful Collaboration with Yorkville Sound, Many Showcases New Products at InfoComm
HK Audio and its North American distribution partner Yorkville Sound will present many of the German pro audio company’s wide range of products at InfoComm in Orlando, Florida, on June 12 through 14, 2019. In its second year at the trade fair, this maker of professional sound systems is going to showcase classic compact PAs such as LUCAS NANO and ELEMENTS and the new LINEAR 7, a line of networkable PA components. Unveiled alongside LINEAR 7 at Frankfurt’s Prolight+Sound trade fair in April 2019, the System Integrator Series will also feature prominently at Yorkville Sound’s booth #5875 at the Orange County Convention Center.
LINEAR 7 is the latest, most advanced range in HK Audio’s industry-leading, made-in-Germany LINEAR series, which also includes LINEAR 3 and LINEAR 5. The five speaker models that make up the LINEAR 7 launch portfolio – including four mid/high units and one subwoofer – feature the most powerful and functional feature sets of any LINEAR product to date, pushing the LINEAR concept forward and extending the family with a line that meets the needs of future and more professional applications.
What really sets LINEAR 7 apart as the live tool of choice for pro bands, DJs and PA providers, though, is its state-of-the-art Ethernet-controlled DSP technology, which can even be used to control existing LINEAR speakers using LINEAR 7’s integrated DSP out. In addition, LINEAR 7 also offers user-friendly cardioid options – the relevant preset can selected with the simple press of a button on the subwoofer. We use Milan, a state-ofthe-art AVB-based network environment, to stream audio data. The certification for Milan is in the works.
Also new for Prolight + Sound 2019 is the SI series, a family of speakers tailored to meet the demanding needs of today’s installation market.
The first SI speakers – SI stands for System Integrator – to be launched are the P10i and P10j. These high-performance line-source speakers, each loaded with ten 3” high-performance drivers, are ideally suited to a wide variety of installation locations, from large rooms with long reverberation times and noisy indoor venues, to auditoriums, houses of worship and outdoor long-throw applications.
Andreas Mayerl, HK Audio’s Head of Market Development, said: “After an incredibly successful InfoComm debut last year, we’re pleased to be back at the largest American trade fair for audiovisual technology in 2019! This marks the first year of our fruitful partnership with Yorkville as our distribution partners in North America, and we’re looking forward to working with them to showcase our product portfolio, and all the new releases.”
