KV2 VHD5.0 launches in China


KV2 Audio and its Chinese distributor, AVMedia, introduced the new VHD5.0 large-format concert system to the Asian market during this year’s Pro Light + Sound Guangzhou, with demonstrations staged at a secluded location away from the exhibition centre, offering an open area without SPL limitations.

To demonstrate the VHD5.0 system, which comprises VHD5.0 mid-high modules and VHD8.10 low-mid expansions, KV2 hired a band to perform two sets during each day of Pro Light + Sound Guangzhou. Two VHD5.0 systems were flown in an L-R configuration, with an SL4.12 beneath each providing down-fill. For low-end extension, five VHD4.21 subwoofers, also making their Chinese debut, lined the front of the stage. The band made use of an ESM12 monitoring system.

KV2’s sales director for Asia and North America, Dave Croxton, technical projects director Andy Austin Brown and technical support director for Asia, Angus Davidson, led the demonstrations, which attracted approximately 800 people, including representatives from KV2’s distributors in South Korea, Vietnam and Malaysia. AVMedia’s general manager Jason Shi and chief technical engineer Bruce Wang provided support and interacted with potential Chinese customers.

‘Our launch of VHD5.0 in China has been an outstanding success,’ said Mr Croxton. ‘Apart from the huge attendance of Chinese customers we had visitors from most of Asia including South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Philippines. There is strong interest in the VHD5.0; we have had representatives from a wide range of industry sectors listening to the system, from live production companies at one end of the scale right through to large club installations at the other end. Given the outstanding take-up of VHD2.0 in China, I am confident that VHD5.0 will also become a strong contender in the large-format sound reinforcement market here.’

Mr Davidson commented on AVMedia’s support. ‘They have been an amazing distributor for us; they really understand the KV2 technology and have done a great job of taking the brand into China and building awareness of it.’

Discussing the VHD5.0, Mr Davidson added, ‘Large-format point source creates a completely different sound to a lot of conventional systems that people are using. It has a lot of big advantages in terms of clarity, musicality, and one of the things people don’t realise is that outdoors, like this demonstration, where there is a lot wind, it’s not affected because it’s point source, so you don’t get a lot of issues you might have with other conventional systems. When you walk from one side to the other and from front to back there is almost no change in the sound; it is very linear.’
