Back in April, Martin Audio chose Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt as the platform to announce and preview its ambitious line-up of 10 new products across multiple categories including line arrays, stage monitors and amplifiers.
With pre-sales running high, Martin Audio has announced that many of the new products have now started to ship. Dom Harter, managing director, commented: “I’m delighted that our production schedule has remained on track which is another sign of the growing maturity of the business, enabling us to keep our commitments to customers.”
First out of the gates was the XE Series, bringing engineering innovation to high performance stage monitoring. Featuring unique Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology with a patent pending third static waveguide, the XE series is designed to deliver” perfect monitor sound with a defined coverage pattern” that allows the artist freedom of movement, while reducing overlap with adjacent monitors. Harter commented, “Both XE500 and XE300 will be featuring at major festivals over the summer, and currently demand has already accounted for our next few months’ production.”
Also shipping is the latest LE Monitor Series, scaling down the technology found in the XE Series to bring engineering innovation to everyday stage monitoring, while at the same time delivering exceptional performance and controlled coverage at a price point not previously possible for a truly professional monitor. Both the LE100 (1×12” LF) and LE200 (1×15” LF) started to ship at the end of May. Harter commented, “We’ve ramped production quickly on these as the price point and early interest suggests significant volume to follow.”
The Wavefront Precision Series is also set to ship this month. Both the WPC (2×10” LF) and the WPM (2×6.5”LF) are new generation of multipurpose line arrays designed to bring
Martin Audio’s signature sound, coverage consistency and control to a broader range of live events, permanent venue installations and budgets.
Finally, the two new high performance subwoofers the SX118 and SX218, a single 18” and double 18” respectively, have also started to ship.
Summing up, Harter said, “We’re delighted that this bold new line-up of product, offering innovation and value has taken the market by storm and already starting to get into customers’ hands.”
