Sennheiser Shows a Host of Entries

mk4_hires.jpgJeff Touzeau had so much to show me at the Sennheiser booth, it was a toss-up as to where we should start. He demonstrated the MK4 studio cardioid condenser microphone and it was impressive, especially when he let me know that the price put it well within reach of the mass market for top quality recording mics. With a frequency response of 20-20kHz and a 130dB dynamic range, the MK4 really brings top features to those who could not afford it before. What got a lot of attention at the booth was the demo of the KZ10 speakers. These tiny wall mount units are about the size of a candy bar and put out an amazing sound. Intended for installations where the speakers must be virtually invisible, the KZ10 speakers hide in plain sight. I had to look closely at the place Jeff was pointing to before I actually noticed them. Perfect for background sound in clubs and restaurants, the KZ10 really made a big impression; that is, once it was seen. Another star was the KR-400 speaker system featuring LEDs in the front that can only be seen from positions within the sound field of the speaker. It’s almost like being able to see the sound pattern itself. The KR-400 was the topic of discussion in the Sennheiser demo room across the hall and it actually got some applause when the sound cuts were put through it.
