Adamson Systems Engineering in Port Perry, Ontario, Canada, announces that more than 20 professional sound companies have added Adamson’s sub-compact S-Series Line Array system to their inventories. The S-Series comprises the S10 line array enclosure and S119 subwoofer, and debuted in March 2015. The S-Series is designed to be powered by the E-Rack, which incorporates Lab.gruppen amplification, combined with versatile I/O and industry standard power connections, as well as a 20-port managed Ethernet switch to route dual-redundant Dante and control signal. A personal license for Adamson’s Blueprint AV software is included with each E-Rack.
Canada-based L’Audi-C Sonorisation Inc., U.S.-based Atomic Pro Audio, and France-based Lagoona, Ecouter Voir, MF Audio, SG Group, Concept, Sonoscene and Audiolite are now owners of the system. Belgium’s EML/PRG, Event Com, and Ampli have also invested in the S-Series. Sweden-based Soundforce and AMG Korea along with Fluge (Spain) have likewise joined the network. Netherland companies supporting the S-Series include Stagelight, Hoevenaars, RBS Audio, Production Partners and HRS.

“We are extremely pleased with the response to our new family of sub-compact line arrays,” says James Oliver, Adamson’s director of marketing and sales. “Many of our partners tried out the beta versions of the S10 line array enclosure and S119 subwoofer and were so blown away they immediately placed orders to add the system to their inventory. I’m happy to announce that more than 20 companies now have the S-Series P.A. and have put them into immediate use.”
“The size and the weight of the S10 vs the SPL is incredible,” says Daniel Hardy, president of L’Audi-C Sonorisation Inc. “The phase is really coherent. The high frequency versus distance is so linear that it’s hard to believe it’s a two-way box. The rigging is so simple that one guy can do it alone and the sound quality? It is excellent just like all the Adamson products we have bought in the past.”

“I have been really impressed by these boxes. With their size and weight they easily adapt and fill a need,” adds George Perone, engineer, Atomic Pro Audio. “Being a 10-inch compact line array with such a powerful HF driver gives us more bang for the buck than other 8-inch counterparts, and they are very versatile—mains, down fill, front fill, side fill; you name it, these do it.”
“The S10 has the size, weight and footprint that you expect from a modern small line array, with the sound and the output power of a larger array system,” adds Patrick Demoustier, sound engineer, PRG/EML. “The S10 has so much detail, it’s incredible. I was blown away by about the natural sound and the detail of the mix during the first tour that I used it on.”
