Ayra goes pro
The Ayra Pro range replaces the previous Ayra family
RCF has launched the new Ayra Pro range of nearfield studio monitors, replacing the previous Ayra family. Four models form the Ayra Pro catalogue initially: three two-way speakers – the full-range Pro5, Pro6 and Pro8 (5-, 6- and 8-inch models, respectively) – and the Pro10Sub 10-inch subwoofer. As well as being used for professional stereo or multichannel systems, the Ayra Pro solutions can be put to work in high-end AV systems or hi-fi setups.
All four Ayra Pro models include Class-D amplification. The Pro5 boasts 100W of power, while the Pro6 offers 120W, the Pro8 is 140W and the subwoofer is 300W. They each possess on-board DSP and a FiRPHASE algorithm as standard, ensuring 0° linear phase for time-aligned sound emission covering the full spectrum. The Italian manufacturer states that ‘this feature provides greater detail in the reference sound, with a real panorama of the stereo soundfield, where the phantom centre is perfectly perceivable’.
RCF has also issued RDNet Release 3.1. This update brings four new features to the software: a prediction tool integrated completely into the network controller; global definition and adjustment of humidity and temperature; a bass shaper for tuning and correcting low frequencies; and a freely adjustable high-pass in the bass shaper.
