ISE 2014: Meyer Sound to unveil LYON system

Meyer Sound has announced LYON, the latest addition to its LEO range of loudspeaker systems.

A lighter and more compact version of the existing systems in the series, LYON extends the advantages of linear self-powered solutions to a wider range of venues and applications, and is set to debut at ISE 2014 (Stand 1-F90).

“With the LEO system, we have shown how a system that stays linear across all frequencies and at very high sound levels can provide a whole new listening experience for everything from the New York Philharmonic to Bassnectar,” says John Meyer, Meyer Sound’s CEO and co-founder. “By combining this high level of linearity with a more flexible package, LYON will open up many more opportunities for listeners to experience the performance advantages of a linear system.”

LYON will be available in two versions – the LYON-M main line array loudspeaker and the wide-coverage LYON-W.

Complemented by the 1100-LFC low-frequency control element and the Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system, LYON-M can anchor a powerful system for installations in arenas and large auditoriums, as well as tours and festivals. LYON-W can also be used as down fill to augment a LYON-based system. Both LYON variations can provide supplemental coverage in a LEO system as well.

Meyer Sound will display the new Galileo Callisto 616 AES primary array processor – a powerful hardware and software solution for driving and aligning loudspeaker array systems – in Amsterdam as well. Developed as a mastering tool for delivering digital audio, Callisto 616 AES offers versatile alignment tools like U-Shaping equalisation and delay integration, along with a full suite of AES3 analogue and digital inputs and outputs.
