Live Design has named its top products of the past year again. Chosen by our panels of prestigious judges in three categories—lighting, projection, and sound—several months were spent debating the Live Design 2016-2017 Products Of The Year.
Meyer Sound says it has created a “new breed of stage monitor.” Well, perhaps it has, taking its MJF line of self-powered stage monitors, packing a lot of punch into a small package, and giving us the high-output MJF-208. Based on the MJF-212A and the MJF-210, this smaller sib measures less than 13” high and weighs 45lbs. One judge says that it’s “both smaller and lighter than a powered UM but somehow also sounds better and gets louder than the UM,” while another adds that it’s simply a “great sounding, powerful little stage monitor.” The monitor fits right into the family, maintaining the MJF series’ reputation for flat amplitude and phase responses, full-range bandwidth, and great impulse response, and Meyer’s own Intelligent AC system for automatic voltage selection, EMI filtering, soft current turn-on, and surge suppression.
Products of the year will be presented along with the Live Design Achievement Awards and the tenth annual Excellence in Live Design Awards during a ceremony, sponsored by GLP and Meyer Sound, on June 12 in New York.
