Las Vegas, Nevada (April 6, 2010)–Focal Professional will be showing the latest addition to its CMS professional monitoring speakers line, the CMS 40, at the NAB Show.
The new CMS (Compact Monitoring System) 40, targeted for broadcast and post production environments, reportedly combines sound neutrality, extended bass frequency, high dynamics and absence of distortion at high sound levels, all in an ultra-compact speaker. Focal’s most compact and most affordable Professional range monitor, the CMS 40 design allows near-field listening from as little as 16 inches. The CMS 40 can also be a second pair of monitors to allow engineers to check their mix on a smaller system or for use as a compact 5.1 channel surround system.
All technologies and components in Focal monitors are designed by Focal in France, where the company also builds the speakers. The CMS 40 monitor is equipped with the same aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter as in the CMS 50 and CMS 65, offering clear highs to 28 kHz and the very low weight of the four-inch polyglass cone woofer extends the frequency response to 60 Hz.
The cabinet design of the CMS Series combines an Aluminum case with specific acoustic treatment that has led to elimination of any ‘ringing effect.’ The 25-watt RMS, class AB, bi-amped system features adjustments for high and low frequency shelving to account for various listening room types, while front mounted power switch and volume trim help when working in a tight workspace.
The CMS 40 model is set for release in the US and Canada in June 2010 through Focal’s exclusive distributor Audio Plus Services.
