Alcons Audio announced their debut in the United States with participation in the AES Convention this year in San Francisco, and the appointment of Transmission Lines Marketing & Distribution as the official U.S. distributor of their systems, amplifiers, controllers and components.
“We are very happy to make this announcement after our formation only two years ago," said Tom Back, managing director of Alcons Audio, B.V. "We have experienced fantastic growth in Europe this past two years, and we felt this was the right time to bring our unique technology to the U.S. market."
"We first listened to the Alcons Audio product line at the 2002 Frankfurt Music Messe, and were instantly drawn to the quality and concept behind their extremely advanced ribbon designs," said Nat Hecht, principal CEO of Transmission Lines Marketing & Distribution. "We are very honored to be able to offer Alcons' cutting edge product in the U.S., we feel their products are clearly an exciting technological advancement in sound system design for nearly every application."
Using the latest available material science in transducer acoustics in their R&D department, Alcons Audio has developed a proprietary ribbon technology that is a different, but proven, method for reproduction of mid and high frequencies at concert level sound pressure levels. The basic "building block" in their medium to large speaker systems is the RBN601 ribbon driver (multiple patents pending), which sets a new standard in pro-ribbon technology. With a genuine 90 degrees of horizontal dispersion for the upper frequencies, the natural cylindrical wave pattern produced by the RBN601 forms an excellent basis for line-array configurations.
In addition to developing their ribbon devices, Alcons Audio has developed electronic advancements in the areas of signal integrity sensing, speaker drive processing and advanced thermal and clip management that are all trademarked and available in their dedicated systems. These advancements allow the option to “plug and play” while at the same time not limiting the customer's personal system design gear preferences.
