Jon Chapple compiles this month’s list of hot new products DIGIGRAM


LX-IP RAVENNA


What is it? Digigram’s fi rst RAVENNA/AES67-enabled Soundcard.


Details: Featuring ultra-low latency down to one audio sample per IP packet, up to 256 RAVENNA I/O channels from multiple RAVENNA streams and a full MADI interface, Digigram states that the new card is “ideal for high-density audio production or automation applications in radio and TV broadcast studios.”


And another thing: The LX-IP RAVENNA is the fi rst – but by no means the last – of many Digigram products that will feature RAVENNA technology. The company was one of the fi rst big names to sign up to the RAVENNA consortium in 2011.


www.digigram.com HK AUDIO PL110 FA


What is it? A compact variant of the PULSAR speaker series.


Details: Like its larger siblings, the PL 112 FA and PL 115 FA, the PL 110 FA also houses a 1,000-watt, bi-amped power system, which delivers 650 watts to its 10-inch


woofer and 350 watts to the tweeter.


And another thing: An intelligent multi-band limiter which tames spiking bass signals ensures the PL 110 FA’s audio image remains stable even at high volumes. www.hkaudio.com


LACIE EIGHTEEN SOUND XG10


What is it? A line source waveguide with a 1-inch throat entry.


Details: The XG10 has a transmission line acoustic design that minimises internal refl ections and acoustic loss, and the unique throat shape has been optimised for lowering air distortion.


FAIRLIGHT CC2


What is it? The second-generation digital audio engine by Fairlight.


Details: Based on Fairlight’s Crystal Core Technology, the CC-2 boasts 1,000 channels, 100 live inputs and over 100 output buses, making it the fastest and most powerful audio engine ever made.


And another thing: According to Fairlight, the engine is “perfectly suited


to today’s ‘submersive’ surround sound


formats, including Dolby AtmosT, DTS MDA and NHK 22.2.” www.fairlight.com.au


And another thing: The waveguide has been optimised to provide a 10˚ vertical dispersion angle, while the horizontal coverage angle can vary from 80˚ to 120˚ depending upon the specifi c cabinet design. www.eighteensound.com


What is it? A new


2TB hard drive from Seagate brand LaCie.


NEUMANN KH 120 D


What is it? The digital version of the Neumann’s KH 120 A monitor.


Details: The KH 120 D improves on its predecessor with an additional BNC input for AES/EBU or S/P-DIF formats (24-bit/192kHz), enabling “seamless digital workfl ow” right up to playback on the studio monitor.


And another thing: Unique to the KH 120 D is a digital delay unit for both the analogue and digital


input channels, which allows the monitor to be used for tasks where time-alignment is required,


including audio-video synchronisation and time-delay compensation. www.neumann.com

of content to up to fi ve devices without an internet connection, the


ability to create its own WiFi network and act as a hotspot when connected to the Internet via WiFi, and Airplay compatibility for mirroring content on a larger screen.
