The 109th AES Convention ~ a Report by ~ Page 5 of 15

Loudspeakers are a key technology common to audio professionals and home users alike. While speakers designed for studio, theater, and concert environments still differ from home and audiophile transducers, particularly in aesthetics and ruggedness, an ongoing convergence is bringing the two product worlds closer together, as Dr. Floyd E. Toole made clear in his tutorial. A key remaining difference is the use of active speaker designs for pro use, where the speaker has its own built-in amplification.

The au currant active speaker manufacturer for high end studio applications is Genelec, who showed why with a formidable "wall of sound" (above and left) demo that enabled on-the-fly switching between various models.

The new bi-amplified LSR25P Studio Monitors from veteran JBL Professional impressively handled the wide dynamics and reverb subtleties of the 960L Multi-channel Digital Effects System demo in the Lexicon booth.
