Ontario, Canada (June 16, 2020)—As part of InfoComm Connected, Adamson Systems Engineering has launched its new CS-Series, infusing its sub-compact S-Series loudspeakers with onboard amplification and DSP, plus Milan-ready AVB connectivity. Rounding out the series are a suite of CS rack-mounted systems and a dedicated CS software solution.

The CS-Series loudspeaker offerings are available as standalone products or as an upgrade to existing S-Series enclosures. With Milan-ready AVB architecture, the line integrates into networks, offering built-in network redundancy, with a single cable relaying audio and control signal.

The new CS-Series is comprised of: the ultra-compact CS7 two-way, full-range array enclosure; CS7p point-source enclosure; and companion CS118 subwoofer, along with the sub-compact CS10 two-way, full-range array enclosure; CS10n narrow-dispersion array enclosure; CS10p point-source cabinet; and companion CS119 subwoofer.

CS-Series loudspeakers feature the same form factors as their S-Series counterparts, and their sonic signatures are uniform with the S-Series and IS-Series. Additionally, the new turnkey CS Upgrade Kit allows any existing S-Series cabinets to be converted to CS models in minutes.

Also part of the CS-Series are four other products, starting with the CS Gateway, a 16 x 16 matrix with 16 channels of DSP, containing dual-LAN, Milan-ready AVB, AES/EBU, and analog connections. Then there’s the NDS, a network and analog patch bay that allows users to send redundant audio and control to CS loudspeakers on a network cable. Elsewhere, the PDS ensures that all CS-Series systems receive ample power, regardless of region, and also allows the user to monitor consumption data, both per power output as well as overall draw. Lastly, the CS Bridge is designed to replace existing network infrastructure in Adamson’s E-Rack, allowing users to integrate the CS-Series into their existing inventories by converting dual-LAN, Milan-ready AVB signal to AES/EBU, while also offering six channels of DSP per unit.

Aiding users in the planning and implementation of all this is Adamson’s new CS software, which helps users design, deploy, control, and monitor systems in mobile and installed environments with a user interface that moves logically from design and simulation through to patch, control, metering, optimization and diagnostics.

“The response we’ve had to the CS-Series from some Adamson Network partners involved in early field testing has been outstanding,” notes Jochen Sommer, Adamson’s director of Operations, EMEA. “This is the future of intelligent loudspeaker design. From initial system design to deployment and tuning, the CS-Series offers top-tier performance with an incredibly simple workflow. The work our engineering team put into the DSP and amplifier technology has been widely praised, and of course, the products sound phenomenal.”
