NAMM 2012: Alto Professional Wireless Powered Speakers

Late last year, we brought you the full video reviews of the new Alto Professional TrueSonic line of powered speakers. We tested the powered 12-inch two-way speaker, the TS112A and the powered 15-inch subwoofer, the TSSUB15. Both pieces had very nice quality and great sound fidelity for the price they are sold. Now Alto Professional is introducing their TrueSonic Wireless loudspeakers that are meant to deliver great sound remotely from an iPhone, iPad, or other wireless devices. The TS112W (12-inch speaker) and TS115W (15-inch speaker) both come with 800 watts of class D power and can play from a wired or wireless source. More details inside.

Gemini Releases RS Speaker Line...

Back in the day (in the mid to late 90’s), when me and my DJ friends needed a quick set of speakers at a budget cost, we would look straight towards our local Pro-Sound store which carried the Gemini Line of speakers at insanely low prices. They weren't the top-of-the-line speakers, so they wouldn't really last that long, but they definitely got the job done and they were easily worth the money. In steps the new RS Speaker line from Gemini that promises to last longer than the previous speaker models and they are even offered in Active and Passive iterations.
