Mackie adds all-in-one PA with Bluetooth

AUTHOR: Inavate

Mackie has announced a professional PA system called The Mackie Reach which features Bluetooth music streaming, and a full-featured 6-channel digital mixer.

It also features a control app for iOS and Android, to deliver flexibility for a range of applications.

With Reach, users have access to technology like the ARC array, which provides clear, high-fidelity sound to the audience, and the built-in EarShot personal monitoring system, giving users flexible stage monitoring without the need for additional speakers and miles of cables.

With wireless streaming and control over the built-in 6-channel digital mixer via the Mackie Connect app for iOS and Android devices, users get wireless freedom to control everything from levels, EQ and FX to sound-enhancing tools like a feedback destroyer.

The ARC (Amplified Radial Curve) high frequency array technology in Reach uses three horizontally angled high-frequency drivers paired with dual vertically spaced high-output low-frequency drivers, providing 150 degrees of coverage for optimal sound quality, even for audiences spread over a wide or deep area. Combined with the EarShot personal monitoring system, users get a total of 250 degrees of room coverage.
One of Reach's most powerful features is complete wireless control using the Mackie Connect app, available for iOS and Android devices. The Mackie Connect app puts the user in control of everything, from level adjustments to control over professional performance features like 3-band channel EQ, a built-in feedback destroyer, application-specific speaker voicing modes, 16 vocal/instrument effects, as well as three recallable memory settings.

The Mackie Reach Professional PA System will be available worldwide beginning December, 2015.
