MSE Audio has announced that SoundTube products will now be available to all residential dealers effective immediately. In the UK, they will be available from Genesis Technologies.
This will allow CEDIA-channel integrators to install 70V or Dante-capable systems which provide the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of an IP-addressable ecosystem in both residential and light commercial applications. In addition, MSE Audio is providing a sneak peek at their resi-mercial AV and residential loudspeaker solutions for CEDIA Expo Virtual 2020 on September 15-17.
“With more residential integrators working in commercial spaces, we want to make the SoundTube family of products available to them. We strive to provide our dealers with exceptional sound quality with a diverse product catalogue, engineering availability and a high level of customer service at all times,” says Mike Sipe, Vice President of Sales. “By offering the versatility of a Dante system to our residential dealers, it will help them simplify installations to be competitive in the marketplace while offering customers high-quality audio solutions.”
The CEDIA Expo Virtual 2020 booth will feature SoundTube’s STNet products including the first pendants in the pro AV industry with Dante capability, the STNet Pendant Speakers. The pendants use BroadBeam Ring high-frequency dispersion technology for clear, understandable messaging and music over a wide area, even off-axis from the speakers. Applications include any facility with high or open ceilings, such as expansive homes, large retail stores, houses of worship, schools, hotels, meeting spaces, bars and restaurants.
Designed for small to medium-sized applications including residential multi-room distributed AV, bars, restaurants, hospitality, education facilities and more, the IPD-HUB 2 DSP amplifier is the heart of a complete networked audio system with local and Dante inputs. HUB 2’s can be linked together to distribute audio over large spaces or set up to operate in up to eight zones.
SoundTube’s Dante products use the STNET Control Centre setup software and because these products are on the Dante platform, they are interoperable with a host of other products worldwide. They may be used with SoundTube’s ST-Net Switch II, offering up to 40 watt PoE to each speaker, or with standard PoE or PoE+ switches. Our engineering staff stands ready to help integrators design IP-addressable systems for their customers.
On the residential side, dARTS CI140D angled ceiling speakers allow integrators to install ceiling-mounted front channel speakers while still providing the quality of sound necessary to meet dARTS’ rigid sonic requirements. The 45″ angled baffle fills the listening area with direct sound producing an uncompromised front sound stage. Low frequencies are augmented with our patented hybrid enclosure design which produces twice the bass compared to speakers using conventional enclosures.
PhaseTech’s Premier Collection now sports modern white cabinets for the high-end loudspeaker line. Products include towers, centre channels, surround and bookshelf speakers.
The outdoor virtual display will feature SquareRoot landscape speakers with an optional 64 watt transformer for installation in 70V systems. The award-winning Cherry Bomb, a 5-inch, three-way outdoor in-ground speaker with a built in subwoofer, has a small form factor and powerful full-range audio performance that gives faster installation times because installers only need to dig only one hole for every two they would normally dig with a standard landscape audio package.
