The Meyer Sound booth at the 2019 NAMM Show will feature a display of the new Meyer Sound UP-4slim system while also offering the content creation community an opportunity to experience a 7.1.4 immersive demo using Amie precision studio monitors in a small studio environment.
The new Meyer Sound UP-4slim ultra compact loudspeaker will make its NAMM debut and be part of a special promotional package available to Meyer Sound dealers. Offered at a substantial combined discount, the pair of Meyer Sound UP-4slim loudspeakers together with two companions Meyer Sound MM-10ACX subwoofers comprise a complete, fully integrated and highly portable system that provides extraordinary fidelity and an outstanding power-to-size ratio.
Housed in a slender, all aluminium enclosure, the Meyer Sound UP-4slim has a 100-degree symmetrical pattern for wide, uniform coverage in horizontal or vertical orientations. A svelte cabinet makes it easy to install in tight spaces while the minimal weight allows a one-hand carry in portable applications.
The booth’s walk-in immersive sound demo, simulating a small production studio, employs a total of 11 Meyer Sound Amie precision studio monitors for the front, lateral surround and overheads with low frequencies augmented by dual Meyer Sound Amie-Sub compact cinema subwoofers. The intimate immersive environment is suited to a variety of content creation applications in VR, AR, gaming and cinema. Audio content for the demo includes selections from both music recording and cinema with selections in stereo, 5.1 and 7.1.4 formats.
Also featured on the booth, representing the LEO Family of sound reinforcement systems, will be a ground-stacked configuration of Meyer Sound LINA very compact line array loudspeakers over a companion 750-LFC low-frequency control element.
Meyer Sound’s higher profile on the show floor is in response to positive changes instituted by NAMM in recent years, according to Will Lewis, Western US sales manager. “The NAMM Show has emerged as the leading West Coast trade show for the pro audio community,” reflected Lewis. “This is due to a number of factors, including expanded floor space for a dedicated pro audio hall and the formal integration of AES programs into the schedule. And the fact that it’s in Southern California, a hub of the global content creation industry, is another big plus when it comes to direct contact with important Meyer Sound clientele.”
Meyer Sound also will be on-hand for the NAMM-sponsored TEC Awards, where the ground-breaking Source Independent Measurement, SIM System will be inducted into the TECnology Hall of Fame. In addition, the Meyer Sound Bluehorn System studio monitor and VLFC very low-frequency control element has received TEC Award nominations in their respective categories.
