Monitor Audio to Field 2nd-Gen MASS Surround System
Monitor Audio’s second-generation MASS 5.1-channel surround sound system is slated to begin delivery to retailers in mid-to-late May; it features refined, smaller cabinets and a choice of cloth covers.
It is comprised of five satellite speakers and a subwoofer whose designs are suited to the styling of modern rooms, says the company. The sats are two-way, sealed cabinets which are tuned to integrate with the system’s dedicated subwoofer. Their compact design is optimized for performance in off-axis positions, says Monitor. The subwoofer, a compact, sealed enclosure design with internal bracing, has a built-in 120-watt Class D amplifier and digital signal processing, along with advanced limiters that Monitor said are designed to for precise sub output control.
