AMS Series – Stylish Next Generation Surface Mount Loudspeakers
Tannoy has launched the AMS series of surface mount architectural loudspeakers incorporating its award-winning Dual Concentric technology, engineered to provide a seamless sound signature throughout a multi-zoned venue equipped with both ceiling mount and wall mount Tannoy speakers.
Comprising a line-up of seven models ranging from 5-inch to 8-inch, the AMS series’ elegantly styled moulded enclosures blend beautifully into a contemporary décor with optional custom colors available. The new AMS models are rated to IP65 for outdoor use and challenging environments, and UUMW ICT driver versions are available for voice alarm system applications.
AMS DC models features Tannoy’s revolutionary Omnimagnet™ technology and the Torus Ogive Waveguide™ device, which together provide controlled directivity along with improved high frequency response, as well as improved time alignment and coherence.
Revolution XT – The latest development of Tannoy’s most affordable loudspeaker to feature the world renowned Dual Concentric™ driver.
The XT is a true ‘revolution’ of the series, featuring an all-new ‘Dual’ with some of the most significant and fundamental design changes in the driver’s near 60-year history. While retaining Revolution’s familiar trapezoid cabinet shape, wide-ranging changes to Revolution XT’s internal design make for a completely new and unique loudspeaker concept.
Tannoy’s pioneering Twin-cavity coupled reflex system and down-firing external port delivers the Revolution series’ most tuneful and musically coherent bass to date, while the integrated plinth further improves transient attack and overall stability. The new Dual, with its Omnimagnet™ motor and class-leading dispersion characteristics, has been partnered with a new series of audiophile grade crossovers to realise the very best performance across the range.
XT is a true Revolution in loudspeaker design.
With a range spanning 100mm (4.00”), 150mm (6.00”) and flagship 200mm (8.00”) Dual Concentric drivers, Revolution XT is offered in a five-strong range to ensure there is a perfect model for every home. Available in Medium Oak or Dark Walnut real wood veneers, Tannoy’s legendary quality of finish is further enhanced with magnetic grille mounts and subtle trim detailing. From the compact Revolution XT Mini stand-mount loudspeaker to the imposing Revolution XT 8F floorstanding model, the range delivers unrivalled musical articulation and outstanding dynamics.
Lab.gruppen LUCIA 120/1-70 and LUCIA 240/1-70 – The latest versions of the LUCIA ((Localized Utility Compact Intelligent Amplification) series with the introduction of two new 70V amps in 120 watts and 240 watts
Lab.gruppen has extended its range of ultra-compact and highly cost-effective power amplifiers which offer AV installers the option of driving 70V distributed loudspeaker systems while retaining the small form factor, input flexibility, build quality and GPIO facilities also featured in the LUCIA low impedance models.
Both new LUCIA models incorporate dual inputs, a feature which allows mixing of two sources or selection of either the A or B source for the single mono output. Connectors are both balanced Phoenix type and unbalanced RCA for each input, with a built-in matrix function mixing the balanced and unbalanced signals with optimized gain structure. Front panel controls mix or select the A and B discrete source signals.
In common with all models in the LUCIA range, the new 70V models couple a digital, firmware-controlled front end (including a multiband compressor and look-ahead limiter) to a patented Class D output stage that is designed for high efficiency, low distortion and minimal heat dissipation. A universal power supply plugs in worldwide, while intelligent fan control maintains silence from idle up to fairly high levels.
The LUCIA series is ideal for a wide range of installation applications, including restaurants and bars, hotels, retail outlets, corporate board rooms, museums and galleries, and smaller event or entertainment spaces.
