ME Geithain ML 811 K1
With the ML811K1 a mastering loudspeaker was created combining maximal levels and absolute neutrality. For the first time mastering engineers have the opportunity to use a loudspeaker providing the same sound pattern Tonmeisters pledge to for decades. Special attention was directed to the necessities and conditions in mastering studios: large rooms and listening distances, high levels and neutrality. Regardless of whether classical, rock, pop, or motion picture productions the ML811K1 overcomes loud and quiet passages with ease. Also in big living rooms or home cinemas it convinces with the accustomed ME quality.
By the cardioid radiation characteristics within the frequency range from 30 Hz through 250 Hz the reflections on the back walls of listening rooms can be minimized. In addition the transfer characteristic can be matched to the acoustical conditions of the reproduction room as well as to the set-up situation by the parametric filters of the integrated DSP.
The total directivity index of the monitor was optimized for long listening distances and a base distance between three and eight metres (9′10″ and 26′3″). For low frequencies a very linear 400 mm (16″) long-throw driver in a cardioid cabinet is employed, delivering excellent impulse fidelity. The four 25 mm (1″) dome tweeters are coaxially mounted in front of the 260 mm (10″) cone allowing a precise steering of the directivity index. As a result a realistic and steady spatial performance of the sound image around the listening position is achieved, with high homogeneity and smallest possible coloration. By the big diaphragm area the ML811K1 is to the highest degree level proof while at the same time it has the lowest distortions. Therefore the ML811K1 is a precision studio tool allowing fatigue free working for hours.
The RL-Amplifier is a 2 U rackmount Class-D amplifier driving the woofer with 1,500 W at 8 Ω and the midrange as well as the tweeters equally with 800 W at 4 Ω and therefore has sufficient power reserves for every situation.
A variety of special stands and racks is available as accessories. According fixing elements have been integrated into the loudspeaker cabinet.
