LEGENDARY AMERICAN CINEMA SPEAKER BRAND – THE REAL CHOICE FOR CINEMA
For more than four decades, M&K Sound has been held in the highest regard by the audio press, the film and music industries as well as by home users seeking the finest loudspeakers for music and home theater.
Building on a truly unique heritage and a strong market presence that transcends the traditional boundaries between professional and consumer audio, M&K Sound pledges to continue to offer performance, reliability and value for money that are second to none.
The journey began in 1973, when Walter Becker of Steely Dan commissioned M&K Sound to design a studio reference subwoofer and monitoring system for the Pretzel Logic LP mixing sessions. The result was the world’s first balanced dual-drive subwoofer and Pretzel Logic went on to become a million-selling Top Ten hit and one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
M&K Sound combined expertise in live music recording (RealTime Records) and loudspeaker design, drawing heavily on the research and acoustics background of Dr. Lester Field, who had worked at Bell Telephone Research Laboratories and been a full professor at both California Institute of Technology and Stanford University, before retiring as Chief Scientist and vice president of research at Hughes Aircraft Corporation.
FROM LUCASFILM THX, WARNER BROS, DISNEY, PARAMOUNT PICTURES AND THE LIST GOES ON
M&K Sound loudspeakers have been chosen for the development and demonstration of the groundbreaking Dolby Digital ATMOS Cinema and home surround format, for the first public demonstration of the high-resolution Blu-ray disc format, for sound production on all the Star Wars Episodes including Solo and countless other award-winning music, film and TV productions.
A Who’s Who of the professional audio world – film, music, mastering and broadcast studios – continue to entrust their livelihood to M&K Sound reference monitors and powered subwoofers.
M&K SOUND S150 THX CINEMA SYSTEM – FOR THE SERIOUS HOME CINEMA OWNER
The legendary S150 is the culmination of more than 40 years of loudspeaker design and acustic solution for any critical audio and video recordings.
What this updated version of the legendary studio monitor does in the conveyance of exactly what is there in the recorded source, no more and no less, is difficult to formulate in just a few words.
Essentially, it does pretty much nothing, except open up a wide, clean, clear window on every aspect of recorded sound, allowing you to shift your personal focus as you choose between specific details, instruments or voices, while never losing sight of the totality of the overall musical experience.
