Range of five new active full-range cabinets launched at Prolight + Sound is now shipping via distributor JHS.

The five latest additions to HK Audio's range of PREMIUM PR:O modular speakers are now shipping in the UK.

Known as PREMIUM PR:O D, the active full-range cabinets benefit from all-new DSP-powered preamps and class-D power amps.

The new models have also been designed to be an acoustic match for the existing PR:O 210 SUB A and PR:O 18 SUB A active subwoofers.

The passive range of PREMIUM PR:O speakers – recently augmented by HK’s KEY RACK 1.12 unified amping solutions package – remains unaffected by these changes.

Alexander Wollenberg, HK Audio product manager, said at the time of the series' launch at Prolight + Sound: “We’re immensely proud of the fact that PREMIUM PR:O D delivers more sound pressure, noticeably more bass and a more balanced frequency response than its predecessors, and at a cheaper price too.”

Martin Drumm, the HK audio engineer who developed PREMIUM PR:O D, also commented: “Our focus this time round was on transparent sound with excellent voice reproduction and midrange qualities, and we’ve certainly achieved that. New components and the low distortion combination of 1" driver and CD horn also mean the D models achieve a full 90° coverage angle – which is hugely advantageous for the user, especially in wider areas over short distances.”

HK Audio is distributed in the UK and Ireland by JHS.
