By PSW Staff • July 7, 2014 The new SRM 450 and SRM 350 from Mackie. Mackie announces the availability of the all-new, upgraded SRM450 and SRM350 high-definition portable powered loudspeakers. Featuring a powerful new 1000W amp platform, improved sound quality and a host of easy-to-use digital sound-shaping tools, the new SRM450 and SRM350 deliver the professional sound quality and indestructible portability that SRM is known for. “The original SRM450 was the first active portable loudspeaker and, today, is still the most recognized speaker out there,” remarked Greg Young, Mackie Product Manager. “SRM has always meant pro performance and sound quality at an incredible price. The new SRM450 and SRM350 continue this legacy, offering improved power, sound quality and flexible tools perfect for any gig.” In addition to the new amp platform, the SRM450 and SRM350 both feature two new powerful, easy-to-use, audio tools. As a result, the new SRMs simplify setup at the gig and produce results at a price point rarely found in similar speakers. End users choose between four application-specific speaker modes, each re-voicing the SRM to sound its best for the application at hand. Also built-in is an intelligent feedback destroyer that makes soundcheck easier than ever. At the push of a button, SRM instantly identifies and eliminates feedback using up to four narrow 1/16th octave filters. Both models now benefit from Mackie’s HD Audio Processing, which combines powerful patented acoustic correction DSP with optimization features like a precision crossover, driver time alignment and phase correction. The result is professional sound quality that is noticeably more open and natural than competitive designs. Application flexible, the SRM450 and SRM350 offer an integrated 2-channel mixer with input-friendly Wide-Z inputs. Perfect for the singer/songwriter and more, just connect and easily mix multiple sources without the need for a separate mixer. Plus, with a wide range of mounting options and a rugged, lightweight polypropylene cabinet, SRM is extremely durable and portable. “Never before has this level of SRM power, sound quality and ease of use been available in such a portable design. Plus, we lowered the price,” concluded Young. “The power of SRM is now accessible to more people than ever before.” The Mackie SRM450 and SRM350 are now available at music retailers worldwide. The SRM450 carries a U.S. MSRP of $629.99. The SRM350 carries a U.S. MSRP of $519.99. Mackie Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
