Alcons Audio Details ISE Plans
As official “ISE Technology Partner,” Alcons pro-ribbon sound systems can be enjoyed on different locations on the ISE show floor, among which the Audio Solutions theatre in Hall 7 where an Alcons LR7 micro line-array will reinforce the seminar presentations.
However, the best opportunity to hear what the Alcons “pro-ribbon fuzz” is all about, is visiting the “Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience,” supporting Alcons’ claim of bringing “HiFi at concert Sound Pressure Levels” in any size application. In a joint-collaboration with different suppliers, Alcons set-up a unique acoustically-optimized listening room on her stand, where a 13.1 channel pro-ribbon surround system can be experienced.
The system is based on the new CRMS Cinema Reference Monitor System, with CRMSCompact surrounds, both based on Alcons’ multiple-patented pro-ribbon transducer technology, and entirely AES3 driven by Sentinel digital amplified loudspeaker controllers.
On the stand, and appealing to the CEDIA side of ISE, Alcons is introducing no less than 3 new products for the Custom Install cinema market, as extension of the CRMS systems. This reference product group is designed for high-end home-theatre, screening room and studio environments and has been installed, a.o., at Walt Disney, NBC Universal, Lucasfilm, Factory studios and a fast growing number of home theatres worldwide.
These additions comprise the CRMS-SRIW, a two-way reference high-output pro-ribbon surround system with 8” woofer and 4” Alcons proprietary pro-ribbon mid/high transducer with 800W peak power handling for in-wall mounting and as such complementing the CRMS screen system.
The CRMSC-SRIW is the in-wall surround equivalent for the CRMSCompact screen system, featuring a 6.5” reflex-loaded woofer and 2” Alcons proprietary pro-ribbon mid/high transducer with a surprisingly high 1:15 RMS-to-peak dynamic range.
Third addition is the CRMSC-SRHOR, which is the CRMSC on-wall surround but then in horizontally-arranged configuration, for lower-ceiling and/or above-screen positioning. All CRMSC surrounds are acoustically identical to the mid-high section of the CRMSC screen system, offering an seamless imaging and tonal balance throughout the room.
Also on the stand, Alcons will show a.o. the RR12 point-source array and the unique QR24 line-source column, the perfect solution for crystal-clear, undistorted sound reproduction in acoustically-challenging rooms, without the need for electronic steering.
ISE 2016 takes place at Amsterdam’s RAI from the 9th to the 12th of February, with Alcons Audio exhibiting on stand 6-H152 (Hall 6).
