EBS Reidmar 750 on its way from Sweden
We are pleased to announce that the EBS Reidmar 750 lightweight bass amp will be arriving in the UK this month.
The EBS Reidmar and new Reidmar 750 utilise a lightweight design that challenges any heavy-weight boutique amp for tonal quality, equipped as they are with EBS’s famed analogue preamp combined with a Class D power amp.
Offering an outstanding power-to-weight ratio, the new Reidmar 750 offers 700W of power compared to its 470W sister. The preamp is almost identical to the original Reidmar, but the added Drive section adds to the palette of tools available to shape your tone.
JBL expands EON600 Series with 1000W 18” subwoofer
Last week saw the announcement of the new JBL EON618S Powered Subwoofer.
Building on its state-of-the-art EON600 Series portable PA loudspeakers, HARMAN’s JBL Professional is introducing the EON618S, an 18-inch, 1000W, self-powered subwoofer. With a purposefully designed large-volume enclosure to support true low-frequency extension, the EON618S is the best subwoofer in its class—at the most competitive price. The EON618S rounds out JBL’s EON600 product family and is tuned to perform optimally alongside EON610, EON612 and EON615 full-range systems.
