Crest Pro-Lite Series Amps
Crest Audio’s Pro-LITE Series of amplifiers include the Pro-LITE 2.0 and Pro-LITE 2.0 DSP, which feature a lightweight Class-D design and stable performance into 2 ohms. The Pro-LITE 2.0 and Pro-LITE 2.0 DSP boast 985 watts/ch., weigh less than 10 pounds, and are rock-solid in parallel, stereo and bridged modes. The Pro-LITE 2.0 and Pro-LITE 2.0 DSP will be available in Q1 2011.

Telefunken M80-WH Wireless Head
Now available, the M80-WH dynamic wireless capsule head replacements from Telefunken are interchangeable with any of the screw-on-style handheld transmitters with a 31.3mm/pitch 1.0mm threading, such as those from Shure, Line 6 or Lectrosonics. The M80-WH capsule’s cardioid pickup pattern and wide response yields a mic that’s sonically open, requiring little or no EQ to fit into a live mix.

Electro-Voice Live X Series
The Live X Series of powered and passive loudspeakers from Electro-Voice includes three powered systems: two full-range loudspeakers and a matching subwoofer. Each powered model has integrated 1,000-watt and 700W Class-D amps. Both full-range systems can be pole-mounted or stacked with the series’ acoustically matched powered subwoofer. The Live X family also features four passive configurations, including a dual-15-inch system.

HK Audio Elements
High-performance German speaker company HK Audio enters the U.S. market and is distributed by Korg USA. The new Elements modular system merges modern line array technology with the portability and ease of ultracompact P.A. systems. Using six easy-to-combine components (top and sub boxes), the system can be configured to support anything from small gigs to a 3,600W concert rig.

Shure PGX Digital Wireless
Shure has unveiled its first digital wireless system. The new PGX Digital wireless features 24-bit/48kHz digital audio precision, extended battery life and the convenience of 900MHz band operation—all in user-friendly packages for handheld (with SM58 or Beta 58A capsules), instrument (guitar cable or clip-on Beta98H/C) or presentation form with lavalier or headworn mics.

Yamaha DSR Series
Yamaha’s new DSR Series loudspeaker line includes the full-range (single-woofer DSR112 and DSR115; and double-15 DSR215, with 2-inch neodymium-magnet HF drivers) and a single-18 DSR118W sub. All feature onboard Class-D amps, with all-new D-Contour multiband dynamic processing, integral digital tuning, intelligent dynamic control and extensive DSP protection.
