Amate brings the X212AF to Vietnam and Korea


Amate Audio recently conducted distributor training and presented launch events in Hanoi and Andong (southeast of Seoul), for its X212AF high-performance large format line array with its Vietnamese and Korean distributors, Van Lam Audio and Daelim Musical Instruments, respectively. First unveiled at ISE, the X212AF is the latest addition to the Xcellence series and incorporates the Spanish manufacturer’s Active+ integrated power and control platform, which provides 4000W of Class-D amplification as well as advanced control parameters such as FIR/IIR. The X218WF subwoofer was also shipped out to both distributors in preparation for these events.

‘Our distributors are already very familiar with our active integrated power and processing designs, from earlier Xcellence series models and our new Nítid series systems,’ explained the manufacturer’s vice president and chief technical officer, Joan Amate. ‘Active+ is a further advance in the implementation of our power and control platform; providing extensive, rapidly achievable set up and tuning capabilities and superior sonic performance from a large format line array.’

Joan Amate and international sales manager Jordi Amate first travelled to Vietnam for two days of training and a demonstration of the new systems. The Van Lam Audio team were taught the design, performance and operational features of the systems, as well as how to deploy them. Once the Amates left, Van Lam Audio conducted what was the first outdoor demonstration of the X212AF and X218WF to potential customers. ‘With 12 X212AFs and six X218WFs, the system really brought an impressive experience,’ said Van Lam Audio director Nguyen Duc Cuong. ‘The immediate impression is the physical scale, compared with the X210, providing a large format line array for really big arenas and stadiums. The sound quality is excellent, with very impressive sound pressure and smooth coverage.’

Meanwhile, in Andong, the Amate Audio duo spent three days with Daelim Musical Instruments, conducting indoor and outdoor live demonstrations, and training seminars. The distributor had already made sales of 16 X212AF and eight X218W systems to a pair of rental companies – Handasa Sound Company and Mi Sung Sound – and so the training was also given to their teams as part of the handover.

‘Once the system was rigged in place, set up time with the Active+ pre-sets was less than 90 minutes,’ said Joan Amate. ‘With the pre-set configurations, optimum performance was easily achieved and no further equalising required. This was a first auditioning of the system for these customers; they had committed to ordering the system on the say-so of Daelim Musical Instruments’ engineers who had visited our R&D facilities in Barcelona for an early look at preproduction samples last year. Mi Sung Sound and Handasa Sound Company were extremely impressed with the quality and performance. And Daelim’s team was further impressed that the final production system sounded even better than the prototype they had heard.’

On the third day in Andong, three other rental companies were invited to participate. Approximately 130 attendees listened to a flown eight-per-side X212AF system with eight X218WF subs controlled using DiGiCo, Soundcraft VI Series, PreSonus and Midas M32 consoles.
