Familiar format, unprecedented sound quality; VUE’s latest addition combines legendary design with next-generation transducer and DSP technologies
June 18th, 2018 — Escondido, Ca
Following a successful preview at the InfoComm show earlier this month, VUE Audiotechnik is pleased to introduce the hm-115 into its hm-Class of high definition stage monitoring systems. Slotting perfectly between the hm-112 and hm-212 in both output and physical size, the new hm-115 is ideal for discerning professions who prefer a more compact design, but desire additional low-frequency extension.
As the latest evolution in a family of world-renowned stage monitors from VUE’s Design Chief, Michael Adams, VUE’s hm-Class formula has been perfected over the course of many decades. In fact, the hm-115’s footprint and transducer orientation is the direct descendent of classic monitors that have shared the stage with acts such as Toby Keith, Frank Santana, Boz Scaggs, Rage Against the Machine, Def Leppard, Brian Setzer, Gary Allan, Lenny Kravitz, Elvis Costello, and Lucinda Williams – just to name a few.
The new hm-115 updates this legendary formula by taking full advantage of VUE’s most advanced technologies and the same “No Compromises” design philosophy behind the company’s flagship h-Class systems. From its precise beryllium-infused HF transducers to the companion rack-mount V4 VUEDrive Systems Engine with next-generation DSP capabilities, the hm-115 is a fully integrated, electro-acoustic monitoring system that delivers unparalleled output and fidelity for the most demanding fold-back applications.
“If a speaker could have a pedigree, the hm-115 would be the loudspeaker equivalent of a thoroughbred,” remarked VUE CEO Ken Berger.
“Mike Adams is responsible for some of the most widely-used and universally requested stage monitors in touring history.
The hm-115, and the h-Class in general draw from Mike’s vast catalog and experience to bring a new performance standard to the stage in a familiar and well-established format.”
