AES 2017

We will launch an exciting new monitor that guarantees ideal results for every audio professional in all areas of music recording, mixing, mastering, broadcast and post production. Incorporating radical new technologies that deliver exceptional sonic performance, the new monitor will be officially unveiled on the first day of the show and is expected to generate plenty of interest.

We will also be showing its ever popular twotwo series of studio monitors on booth 330 and, in a separate demo room (1E06) it will highlight some of its larger studio monitors such as the flagship QB1-XBD-A and IB2-XBD-A systems and the Award-winning MB3S-XBD-A and BB6 monitors that were launched earlier this year at NAMM.
