Franklin, TN (October 31, 2011)—Emotiva Audio Corporation has formed a new division, Emotiva Pro, and has released a lineup of professional audio components designed specifically for the studio and desktop studio market.
"Emotiva Pro will deliver the performance and quality that engineers and musicians demand, while achieving new benchmarks in value for the dollar, thanks to our factory-direct model," says Dan Laufman, Emotiva's president and CEO.
Emotiva Pro debuts with Airmotiv, a lineup of self-powered, high-resolution monitoring systems based on transducer and amplification technologies. Each model utilizes the company's Airmotiv folded ribbon high-frequency transducer system. All the Airmotiv monitors are fully biamplified, with separate internal amplifiers for both the woofer and high-frequency transducer. According to the company, this design not only eliminates the need for outboard amplification (and more gear), but also allows greater output, lower distortion and precise control of the acoustical system.
The Airmotiv lineup begins with the compact Airmotiv 4, with 50 watts RMS of internal biamplified power. At 9.4 inches high, it's targeted for home studio and nearfield monitoring applications. The Airmotiv 5 features a larger 5.25-inch woofer with 100 watts RMS of biamplified power, with dedicated amplifiers for high- and low-frequency drivers. The flagship Airmotiv 6 (pictured) offers matched drivers and 210 watts of biamplified internal power.
