Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

One of M&K Sound’s long­est-run­ning and most pop­u­lar mod­els re­cently re­ceived a to­tal up­date—driv­ers, cross­over, cab­i­net tun­ing and con­struc­tion. This up­dated model—the S-150MkII THX Ul­tra2—has also dropped con­sid­er­ably in price.

The S-150MkII THX Ul­tra2 uses three high-qual­ity 25mm poly­mer­coated silk soft-dome, ferro-fluid cooled dual-mag­net tweet­ers aligned in a ver­ti­cal ar­ray, that are po­si­tioned di­rectly along­side two 133mm­di­am­e­ter min­eral-filled polypropy­lene coned bass/midrange driv­ers that have dual-mag­net cast bas­ket woofers. ‘ The S-150MkII THX Ul­tra2 de­sign is based on M&K’s pro­fes­sional mon­i­tors and de­signed to ac­cu­rately re­pro­duce mu­sic and the­atre sys­tem sound in small- to large-sized rooms,’ said Paul Ri­achi, of Indi Im­ports, which now dis­trib­utes MK Sound in Aus­tralia. ‘ The S-150MkII de­liv­ers un­par­al­leled trans­parency, ac­cu­racy, and dy­nam­ics while ef­fort­lessly han­dling voices, per­cus­sive ef­fects, and mu­si­cal in­stru­ments with life-like im­pact, and is tim­bre-matched to the MP-150 and S-150T.’

MK Sound says the orig­i­nal S-150 is used for sound mon­i­tor­ing in all the ma­jor US movie stu­dios, in­clud­ing 20th Cen­tury Fox, Dolby Lab­o­ra­to­ries, DreamWorks SKG, DTS, HBO Pro­duc­tions, Lu­cas­film, Paramount Stu­dios, Sky­walker Sound, Sony Mu­sic & Pic­tures, Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios, Walt Dis­ney Stu­dios and Warner Broth­ers. The new S-150MkII THX Ul­tra2 speak­ers are spec­i­fied as hav­ing a fre­quency re­sponse of 75Hz–20kHz ±3dB and a sen­si­tiv­ity of 92dBSPL (2.83V/1m). They’re avail­able now, ex­clu­sively in a Black Satin fin­ish. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, please con­tact Indi Im­ports on (03) 9416 7037 or visit the web­site at­dim­
