New 7.1 Surround Demo Room at DTS Features Focal Professional Monitors
Champlain, NY - July 11, 2011 - Audio Plus Services, the distributor behind Focal Professional products in North America, announced today that DTS(tm) Digital Entertainment has installed a new 7.1 surround system featuring seven Focal Twin6 Be monitors and dual Focal Sub6 powered subwoofers. The demo room at DTS headquarters in Calabasas, CA is used to demonstrate a wide range of DTS technologies, from pre and post processing and multi-channel Blu-ray content, to lower bit-rate streaming for digital delivery.
"The Focal Twin6 monitors are accurate and revealing, allowing us to demonstrate our audio technologies without compromise," says Ronny Katz, Director of Digital Media at DTS. "Everyone who gets a listen to the 7.1 surround is quite impressed."
Simon Cote, Manager of Professional Products at Audio Plus Services, added, "Working with DTS on the install of the Twin6 Be monitors was an exciting opportunity to get Focal monitors into one of the most important companies in the audio industry. We're pleased that DTS chose Focal as their high-end baseline for listening and demonstrating DTS systems."
The Twin6 Be is the most popular in the Focal Professional range and the most versatile work tool of the SM6 line, it can be found in studios as a solution for recording, mixing and mastering. The stereo image precision, treble definition as well as mid-range neutrality are at the heart of the Twin6 Be's reputation.
The excellent articulation of the bass and mid-bass registers, at very low and even at very high sound levels, makes it a perfect reference monitor for engineers requiring absolute transparency and accuracy. The Twin6 Be features the patented Focal inverted dome tweeter in Beryllium creating a 40Hz - 40kHz spectrum with the woofers. The monitors can be installed vertically or horizontally to respond to the space requirements of any studio, as well as for 5.1 or 7.1 surround systems. The Focal Sub6 subwoofer is a large volume cabinet design, equipped with an 11" woofer and a rear laminar port, and powered at 350w rms, a configuration that guarantees bass linearity whatever the intended SPL.
