At the 2019 NAMM Show in Anaheim, IK Multimedia (Room #17202, ACC North Hall, Level 2) is debuting new iLoud MTM reference monitors, designed provide very flat frequency response and a highly linear phase response.
Onboard amplification is stated to deliver 100-watt RMS power and a frequency response of 40 Hz to 24 kHz frequency response. A symmetrical design enhances imaging and precision. Also included are tilt-able isolation bases. This enables users to create mixes that will translate across multiple playback systems, with no ear fatigue.
iLoud MTM uses high resolution algorithms and high-quality A/D converters to manage crossovers, filtering, time alignment, equalization, dynamics control and auto-calibration. DSP-controlled and precision time alignment are designed to manage off-axis response to minimize the effects of room reverberation.
iLoud MTM also debuts IK’s new patent-pending Physical Response Linearization (PRL) system that uses a precise model of the enclosure’s design, construction and materials, combined with electro-mechanical measurements of the real units, to correct the system’s performance in real time..
The monitors have a midrange-tweeter-midrange symmetrical design, with a pair of 3.5-inch woofers and a 1-inch tweeter to provide a defined, point-source sound. Built-in acoustic auto-calibration is provided by the proprietary ARC System, with IK’s reference ARC™ microphone included, automatically adjusting the frequency response relative to monitor positioning.
iLoud MTM also offers a low-frequency extension control and low and high-frequency trim controls to adjust the response to suit individual tastes. The tilting mount adjusts from 0 to 20 degrees for correct positioning in a wide range of setups. A rubber base for horizontal shelf-placement and a bottom thread to mount on microphone stands are also included.
iLoud MTM will be available in Q2, 2019 at a, MSRP of €349.99 each, excluding taxes.
