Shure Distribution UK @ Sounds Expo
13 April 2005
UK - London's Sounds Expo will witness a number of UK product debuts and promotions on the Shure Distribution stand 525. Firstly Shure's E4c sounds isolating earphones will make their UK debut, having already made headlines, as they were one of this year's International CES Innovations 2005 Award honourees. They are the ideal accessory for music lovers who are serious about sound quality and detail, the E4c's are also the lightest in Shure's family of E Series earphones and mirror the iconic design of the iPod.
Furthermore Phonic's Helix Boards will also be unveiled and consist of two models; the Helix Board 12 is a 12 input compact mixer with 4 mic/line input channels, two paired stereo input channels and two stereo AUX returns. While the Helix Board 17 is a 17 input compact mixer with five mic/line input channels, three paired stereo input channels and three stereo AUX returns.
Another introduction at the show is Phonic's Powerpod 865 Plus powered mixer incorporating eight mic and 10 line inputs, with each channel featuring three-band EQ (two channels with sweepable mids), as well as monitor and effect sends. This ergonomically designed moulded cabinet can be used as a desktop or rack-mounted mixer.
Other notable features include +48V phantom power, vocal elimination, feedback detection; solid Phonic system (sPs) speaker enhancement and two 300W power amplifiers. An integrated 24-bit digital multi-effect processor, features 16 programs with parameter, tap delay and foot switch control.
In addition, Shure say that arguably the highlight of the stand will be the presence of The Thrills, drum kit. What's more the Irish band has signed two Shure SM58 mics, which are up for grabs during the show, along with Shure PGX Wireless Systems.
