Keith Klawitter, founder and former CEO and chief design engineer of enormously successful speaker manufacturer KRK Systems, Inc., is back with the launch of the KD Elite series monitors, the flagship products of his new company, Klawitter Designs.
Not scared of using different design with these eye-catching cabinets, the KD Elite monitor family comprises biamplified two-way 8” and 6” models and a complementary 12” subwoofer, each outfitted with custom components. These speakers are the culmination of nearly a decade of research and development into refining and enhancing direct field monitor accuracy and performance. This is what Klawitter Designs have to say about the KD Elite series...
For recording and mixing, the KD Elite series represents a significant evolution of the Klawitter signature sound—a sound relied upon by scores of first-call recording engineers and producers. Klawitter describes the technological advances in the Elite monitors as “refining the recipe behind my speakers, with a substantial improvement in overall system performance. The result is audio that sounds right; it just clicks.”
For installed sound applications, the KD Elite series offers exceptional performance and advanced capabilities.
Audio Over IP
When outfitted with an optional KD network audio card, the monitors are fully compatible with the key industry network protocols, including Dante, AVB, and AES67. Networked KD monitors present a digital input, with the analog conversion taking place immediately before the input stage of the integrated KD-X amplifiers.
Telemetry Reports To An App
Sophisticated on-board telemetry reports critical component performance to the mix engineer; precise adjustments to individual speakers and/or components can be made wirelessly via iOS or Android smart devices. Ideally suited for high-end multi-channel surround-sound production and playback, KD Elite monitors offer unprecedented control over virtually any sound space, and make light work of ensuring that the system is always performing to optimum specification.
Klawitter Designs KD Elite monitors are scheduled for delivery to select pro audio dealers and AV installers in Spring 2016.
