Martin Audio has announced that its recently launched series of ADORN on-wall loudspeakers is now shipping.
ADORN was presented at Martin Audio Open Days, where global distributors recognised the many application opportunities the product offers, ranging from retail stores to boardrooms.
Designed for distributed sound applications that require visually-discreet, compact enclosures, the ADORN series also provides a seamless sonic transition within a multi-zoned complex, using larger Martin Audio systems such as CDD or BlacklineX.
Featuring a 4” and 5.5” driver, the two-way ADORN 40 and ADORN 55 respectively are available in black or white and can be painted.
The loudspeakers have a nominal impedance of 16 ohms, enabling four or more speakers to be driven in parallel by one amplifier channel. Their ‘T’-designated options are fitted with an internal high-quality 70V/100V multi-tap line transformer with a switch to select the output level.
Dom Harter, managing director, commented: “The commercial install market for loudspeakers is significant and growing, and the ADORN series is targeted to win over specifiers, system integrators and installers by offering stunning sound quality in a diminutive, attractive and competitively priced package.”
The newly-announced SX110 subwoofer will also further extend the bandwidth of ADORN on-wall speakers, and is ideal for foreground music applications which require increased impact and low frequency performance. Designed to be able to sit under banquette seating or discreetly placed within a venue, this compact enclosure features a 10” (250mm) driver and bass-reflex porting to reduce air noise. SX110 can also be suspended by means of integral M8 threaded inserts.
Supporting electronics for the ADORN series has significantly developed Martin Audio’s amplifier and controller portfolio. VIA is a new range of four high performance, cost effective power amplifiers made primarily for installation use, but also suited to portable applications.
Harter explained: “We have enjoyed huge success with the new iKON amplifiers for our Wavefront Precision series and this VIA range of amps offers our users affordable high performance amplifiers for use with our other loudspeakers.”
VIA works in harmony with Martin Audio loudspeakers where networking and onboard DSP are not required, but where a full system set-up is necessary; either the existing DX0.5 controller or newly announced DX4.0 can be added. DX4.0 is a 4-in 8-out loudspeaker processor and matrix featuring networked audio via Dante, 96kHz processing, VX limiting as well as FIR optimisation support for O-Line with Scalable Resolution.
Harter exclaimed: “Our meteoric sales growth in the last two years has been underpinned by an aggressive new product development strategy and ADORN is a shining example of our ability to offer exemplary sound quality and high performance at an affordable price.”
