Saturday, October 10
Hal Leonard Authors at the Show
Editors' First Take

Welcome back to the city that never sleeps! New York City is once again hosting the AES Convention (October 9 to 12, 2009). It’s been two years since audio pros trampled through the streets of N.Y,, attending the convention, hailing a taxi, dining at a great restaurant or taking in the sights.

Each year, we offer our "AES Audio Products Guide," where you can find the latest products that will be debuting—or showcased—at the show. Make sure you bookmark this page during the show for late-breaking news through our blog, updated videos of product demos, nightly newsletters and much more!

Start poking around now!

New Products

Debuts At the Show
Las Vegas Pro Audio, the U.S. distributor for ATC (Acoustic Transducer Company), will introduce the UK manufacturer's first compact active three-way studio control monitor, the SCM25A Pro. Designed for positioning on a meter bridge or rack-mountable for broadcast applications, the ATC SCM25A Pro incorporates the company's proprietary short-coil 7-inch carbon-paper woofer, a 3-inch soft-dome midrange driver and a 1-inch silk-dome tweeter in a ported enclosure that measures 10.4x16.9x16 inches (HxWxD). The integrated tri-amplifier generates 150W RMS for the woofer, 50W RMS for the midrange and 25W RMS for the tweeter. The passively cooled amp pack also features FET limiting. The crossovers are all fourth-order, critically damped with phase compensation.Expected MSRP is below $10,000. Find out more information about the SCM25A Pro.

CEDAR Audio will unveil a significant upgrade to its flagship CEDAR Cambridge Series III audio restoration and speech-enhancement system. This introduces the latest developments in audio processing, including four powerful new modules that make the system useful for an even wider range of applications, plus a new architecture that makes full use of these when batch processing and when the system is used as a restoration server. Further details to follow when the convention opens. Find out more information about the Cambridge Series III.
Booth #461

Grace Design m501
This new 500 Series rack preamp module is a fully balanced, transformerless unit that incorporates 0.5-percent precision metal resistors, high-performance output line driver and HPF amplifiers, and RFI suppression. The 12-position rotary gain switch is gold plated and a sealed gold contact relay is used for hi-Z input switching. There’s also a rotary trim/gain pot included that allows for fine tuning of gain settings. The m501 includes Grace’s ribbon mic mode as standard, which raises the mic impedance, bypasses the input decoupling capacitors and deactivates 48-volt phantom power. With ribbon mode engaged, the m501 provides a wide 10 to 75dB gain range. SRP: $625 (U.S.). Find out more information about the m501.
