Ashly Audio is introducing the first of its new, integrated products of the year at ISE 2019 (Booth 3-C104) as well as its new approach to integrated solutions that focus on helping AV and system integrators to install faster, troubleshoot more efficiently, and develop effective, long-term partnerships with their customers.
“Our belief is that integrated products combined with simplicity in installation and use is critical for contractors going forward,” said Noel Larson, VP of Marketing and Business Development. “Every product we introduce in the coming year will be sharply focused on those core components. Ashly is fully committed to providing effective solutions that work for designers, integrators, and users.”
The first solution in Ashly’s next generation of pro AV products is the mXa-1502 Mixer Amp – an integrated product bringing four zones of mixing and DSP, plus 2 x 150W of power and programmable mic preamps, all made simple in a single, compact rack-mountable unit.
“For users, the mXa-1502 means processing 12 audio inputs into four different areas of a restaurant, school, office, warehouse complex, church or other facility all from a single rack space device,” Larson said. “There is a rich complement of digital signal processing, including routing, auto-mixing, ducking, amplifier monitoring, event scheduling and triggering and more all in a single rack unit.”
The mXa-1502 is primed to help integrators win more clients among the small- and medium-sized business sectors of retail, hospitality, and house of worship. Integrators can deliver long-term assistance thanks to the mixer amp’s built-in web server, which offers a web-based control platform. If an end user requires assistance, an integrator can first login to the controls remotely online before rolling a truck out to the site.
Further, the control system doesn’t require extensive tutorials or workshops to master. Ashly has put a focus on ensuring the most intuitive interface ever, with different levels of control for both the beginner user up to the integrator.
“This is just the first of what is to come this year from Ashly in new products and complete solutions,” Larson said. “What we’re doing with the mXa-1502, in terms of bringing functionality and ease of use together at a very competitive price point, serves as a sign of what is to come.”
