Press Release : Powersoft, a world-leading manufacturer of professional power amplifiers, announced that it will exhibit its M-System innovations this month at ALMA's Winter Symposium on January 3rd & 4th [Booth 24] at the Tuscany Suites and Casino in Las Vegas. The theme for this year's Winter Symposium — which is recognized as the premier event for the loudspeaker and acoustics industry — will be "Digitally Driven Loudspeakers: A New Paradigm Demands New Designs."
Claudio Lastrucci, Powersoft's Research & Development Director, will be on hand to deliver a tutorial, "A New High Performance Moving Magnet Acoustic Transducer" (T1), on behalf of Powersoft. The company will also offer live booth demonstrations of its M-Force and M-Drive solutions, which were launched at InfoComm 2014 and represent a milestone in loudspeaker engineering. The M-Force transducer, for example, features 'push-pull' technology, an extremely powerful motor and unique displacement capabilities — all of which enable M-Force to deliver unsurpassed precision, efficiency and accurate sound reproduction.
Lastrucci's tutorial, which is scheduled to occur Saturday morning, January 3rd at 8:00 a.m. in Florentine A, will focus on new technologies that are now available in the electronic amplification domain, and how innovations in magnetic materials — including the development of new electrodynamic devices — can lead to improvements in electrical to acoustical conversion efficiency, sound quality and power handling. As co-founder and R&D Development Director of Powersoft, Lastrucci's fields of expertise include electric power, audio amplification, signal processing, acoustic design and other areas.
Earlier this year, Lastrucci introduced Powersoft's M-Force linear motor technology at the 136th AES Convention in Berlin [A Novel Moving Magnet Linear Motor: Convention Paper 9060, by Claudio Lastrucci], and presented on the practical use of M-Force linear motor technology with his colleague Mario di Cola of Audio Labs Systems at the 137th AES Convention in New York [Subwoofer design with Moving Magnet Linear Motor: by Mario Di Cola, Claudio Lastrucci and Lorenzo Lombardi], both of which discuss significant innovations in loudspeaker design. The papers are available by contacting the AES online.
Since its launch, Powersoft's M-Force system — including M-Force and M-Drive solutions — have been used in a variety of high profile applications by A/V specialists and integrators including ATK Audiotek, Maryland Sound International (MSI) and others.
