Alcons Audio’s annual home turf playground, ISE 2016

The Netherlands – ISE 2016 sees leading audio innovator Alcons Audio enjoying a comprehensive presence with a number of treats for visitors ears, showcasing the company’s ongoing pursuit of audio perfection.

As official “ISE Technology Partner”, Alcons pro-ribbon sound systems can be enjoyed on different locations on the ISE show floor, among which the Audio Solutions theatre in Hall 7 where an Alcons LR7 micro line-array will reinforce the seminar presentations.

However, the best opportunity to hear what the Alcons 'pro-ribbon fuzz' is all about, is visiting the Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience, supporting Alcons’ claim of bringing: “HiFi at concert sound pressure levels,” in any size application.

In a joint-collaboration with different suppliers, Alcons set-up a unique acoustically-optimised listening room on her stand, where a 13.1 channel pro-ribbon surround system can be experienced.

With the Alcons stand positioned in Hall 6, between Hall 1 and Hall 7 (“audio hall”), passing visitors can participate in this immersive audio experience.

The system is based on the new CRMS Cinema Reference Monitor System, with CRMSCompact surrounds, both based on Alcons’ multiple-patented pro-ribbon transducer technology, and entirely AES3 driven by Sentinel digital amplified loudspeaker controllers.

On the stand, and appealing to the CEDIA side of ISE, Alcons is introducing no less than three new products for the custom install cinema market, as extension of the CRMS systems. This reference product group is dedicatedly designed for high-end home-theatre, screening room and studio environments and has been installed at Walt Disney, NBC Universal, Lucasfilm, Factory studios and a fast growing number of home theatres worldwide.

These additions comprise the CRMS-SRIW, a two-way reference high-output pro-ribbon surround system with 8” woofer and 4” Alcons proprietary pro-ribbon mid/high transducer with 800W peak power handling for in-wall mounting and as such complementing the CRMS screen system.

The CRMSC-SRIW is the in-wall surround equivalent for the CRMSCompact screen system, featuring a 6.5” reflex-loaded woofer and 2” Alcons proprietary pro-ribbon mid/high transducer with a surprisingly high 1:15 RMS-to-peak dynamic range.

The third addition is the CRMSC-SRHOR, which is the CRMSC on-wall surround but then in horizontally-arranged configuration, for lower-ceiling and/or above-screen positioning. All CRMSC surrounds are acoustically identical to the mid-high section of the CRMSC screen system, offering an seamless imaging and tonal balance throughout the room.

Also on the stand, Alcons will show a.o. the RR12 point-source array and the unique QR24 line-source column, the perfect solution for crystal-clear, undistorted sound reproduction in acoustically-challenging rooms, without the need for electronic steering.

ISE 2016 takes place at Amsterdam’s RAI from the 9th to the 12th of February, with Alcons Audio exhibiting on stand 6-H152 (Hall 6).
