„Positively surprised“: Omnitronic PNM-6 convinces in test

August 26th, 2015 Posted in News, OMNITRONIC, Press releases Tags: , ,

German trade magazine Soundcheck tested two Omnitronic PNM-6 studio monitors for its September issue. The verdict on the studio monitors with only 7 kg weight was completely positive.

Omnitronic PNM-Monitor

After careful listening, the magazine stated that the PNM-6s don’t let their compact measurements be heard: „They sound bigger than they are. Especially the vehemence of the basses and low mids is amazing regarding the size of only six inches“. The fact that clipping, artefacts and reduction loss are clearly hearable, convinced the magazine: “The most important function of a studio monitor is accomplished, the PNM-6s relentlessly expose faults”.

Great price-performance ratio

Testers were not only enthusiastic about the clarity of the boxes, but also about the price-performance ratio: “Aside from the fact that the impact of these nearfields is fun, the clean frequency response allows an estimation of the basses on a level that usually must be paid with more money”.

Impressive performance

It’s not surprising that the result and the recommendation of the test are completely positive: „For little money you get a pair of boxes, which impress with a powerful bass section, good stereo positioning and excellent offset in depth. […] Anyone who is looking for a low priced pair of studio monitors, should definitely write the PNM-6s on his list”.

„Business Class“ among headphones: Omnitronic SHP-777BT convinces testers

July 10th, 2015 Posted in News, OMNITRONIC, Press releases, Product news Tags: ,

German trade magazine ear-in put the Omnitronic SHP-777BT to the test in their latest issue. The result: Excellent. The headphones convince whether used as wireless companions on the go or wired on an amplifier.

The speciality of the SHP-777BT: Thanks to Bluetooth equipment, the headphones can be operated wirelessly. This way, they are a perfect match for smartphones as well as IPods and ideal travel mates. Of course they also work with cables – and show strengths then, too.

Balanced sound without cables

When judging sound, the testers differenciate between active operation with cables and passive operation on an amplifier: „Active, via Bluetooth, the sound is balanced. The bass is not obtrusive, a little taken back in the highs. It doesn’t sound dull at all“.

Operated passively on an amplifier, the SHP-777BT shows other strengths: „Connected to a good amplifier, the sound positioning moves back into the head, definition and dynamics become more distinguished. The tonality shifts in different directions now with mighty basses and radiant highs, which, together with the gain of mentioned qualities, really agrees with the headphones“.

Classy appearance

The features of the SHP-777BT were judged business-suitable by the testers as well: „The cloth-covered headband of the SHP-777BT, which is available in grey and black, the slender joints and the modern, square-formed housing present a dignified style.“ The headphones’ fit and soft cushioning were rated as „excellent“.

Recommendable companion

It’s no wonder that the testers give an all-round positive judgement: „The Omnitronic SHP-777BT has two faces. Wireless via Bluetooth, it shows a very sophisticated, convenient character, but in team play, cable-connected with the right team mate, it outdoes itself“.

The Omnitronic SHP-777BT is recommended as wireless travel mate as well as for use with an amplifier.

“Extra hot!“: LED effects with laser

February 10th, 2015 Posted in EUROLITE, News, Press releases, Prolight+Sound Tags: , ,

A lot of hybrid effect devices are cavorting on the market. So far, these have been combinations of acceptable single effects, which made a satisfactory mixture. Now, these effects impress like never before, as their fine tuning is better than ever – and especially the integrated lasers are really convincing.

Just on time prior to the Prolight+Sound 2015, Eurolite now brings three effect devices on the market, which combine well-established LED effects with a laser class M2. That not only saves installation time, but provides perfect use of space – and a colorful light show of course, even at small events.

Choice of three models

You have the choice between a KLS, a hybrid flower effect and an LED bar. If you know the KLS from Eurolite, you can guess that there’s more hidden in a KLS with integrated laser – this representative of the family offers a nearly complete club lighting on one bar: Two derby effects, four strobes and two slim spots share the bar with the laser. The KLS comes pre-assembled in a transport bag.

Almost as well equipped is the FE-1500 Hybrid Laser Flower. The classic flower effect has been fitted with 8 strobe LEDs and a laser and now appears as a colorful bouquet of lights.

The third effect is the LED Laser Bar, offering 190 LEDs. Located in the center of the color changing bar is a laser with the colors red and green.

All three effects can be controlled by DMX. The LED Laser Bar additionally features an infrared remote control – the KLS even comes with a remote control and wireless foot switch.

Saving time and space

All three devices can be installed quickly and bring a party mood even into the smallest locations. This makes them the perfect devices for small rooms as well as for mobile DJs and solo entertainers.

The effects can be seen at the Prolight+Sound 2015 at the booth of Steinigke Showtechnic (hall 11.0. booth A17).
