JBL Announces LSR4300 Surround Series Monitors
JBL Professional has updated its LSR4300 Series studio monitors with the introduction of two 5.1 surround sound systems featuring networking functionality and JBL’s RMC (Room Mode Correction) technology.
Building on JBL’s LSR Series and incorporating a next-generation automated version of JBL’s RMC technology, the LSR4300 Series is well suited for broadcast applications its intended market niche. Each speaker and the LSR4312SP Subwoofer has a built-in analyzer that measures and automatically compensates for low-frequency problems caused by the room’s standing waves and boundaries. Calibration of the system is simply accomplished by connecting a supplied calibration microphone to the speaker and pressing a button. The RMC system can be calibrated and settings can be viewed on the computer desktop using LSR4300 Control Center Software.
With an ever-increasing demand for 5.1 surround sound programming driven by high-definition broadcast production, the LSR4300 system is engineered to be “surround smart.” The Harman HiQnet network, along with LSR4300 Control Center Software, simplifies setup and control of large surround systems with up to eight LSR4326P or LSR4328P monitors (with 6-in. and 8-in. woofers respectively) and two LSR4312SP subwoofers in a single system. Control Center Software includes a virtual “monitor section” with a system volume control, individual channel solo and mute, monitor source selection, eliminating the need to purchase an outboard speaker controller.
Additionally, the entire system may be controlled from anywhere in the room using the LSR4300 wireless remote control. Recognizing some rooms may not have the space to position surround and center channels at the optimum distance, the LSR4300 adjusts the output of each speaker on the network to accurately balance sound arriving at the mix position.
