Blue Sky International has begun a new program allowing potential purchasers of its ProDesk™ 2.1 monitoring system to try the system for up to 14 days, free of charge. The program, known as Demo Direct, was specifically designed to let customers evaluate a ProDesk system in their own workspace.
To qualify, customers should go to the Blue Sky International Website, www.abluesky.com, fill out a request form for the 14-day trial, and Blue Sky will contact them to initiate the loan.
“We wanted to develop a no-risk, real-world evaluation program that allows customers to try a ProDesk 2.1 system in their own work environment. With Demo Direct, we’ve now taken the mystery out of how the monitors are actually going to sound in the user’s studio,” states Chris Fichera, vice president of Blue Sky International. “We believe there is no better tool to help a customer make that all important purchasing decision than having the freedom to evaluate a speaker system in their workspace. Blue Sky’s Demo Direct is a comprehensive approach to the trial process that will enable our customers to feel confident in their choice from the very beginning,” Fichera concludes.
ProDesk is a 2.1 system consisting of two Blue Sky SAT 5 bi-amplified Satellite speakers and a complementary powered Sub 8 subwoofer. Employing Blue Sky’s proprietary computer-optimized crossover and bass-management networks, the ProDesk delivers seamless full range audio from the subwoofer to the main monitors with smooth on- and off-axis frequency response.
The core of a ProDesk 2.1 system is a pair of Blue Sky SAT 5 bi-amplified Satellite speakers. Each features a cast aluminum frame, 5.25-inch hemispherical woofer and a 3/4-inch dual-concentric diaphragm tweeter with integral waveguide for superior off-axis response. Powered by two low-distortion 60-Watt amplifiers with a computer-optimized electronic crossover, the SAT 5 Satellites deliver sound with a reproduction frequency response of
80 Hz to 20k Hz +3.0 dB (200 Hz to 10 kHz +1.5 dB). On the rear panel there is a power switch, gain control with LED power indicator, 80 Hz highpass filter switch and a balanced XLR input. The Blue Sky SAT 5 Satellite speakers are housed in MDF enclosures, measure 10.88×6.62×11.46-inches and weigh 24 pounds each. The SAT 5-powered speakers feature full video shielding, intended for use near video monitors, and also come standard with OmniMount® type 30/75 (M6 x 1.00 mm) mounting inserts.
