M&K Sound Introduces "Single -Source" MPS -45 5 -Channel Monitor

Single Speaker Delivers Room-Filling 5 Channels Of Surround Sound

CHATSWORTH, Calif. (May 1, 2004) - - Miller & Kreisel Sound (M&K), announces a breakthrough "Single -Source" loudspeaker that produces five channels of surround sound from a single cabinet.


Unlike speakers that use psychoacoustic trickery to create the illusion of surround only in a narrow "sweet spot," the MPS -45 disperses sound into the room using five separate speaker elements to produce a convincing surround field over a broad listening area.

The MPS -45 incorporates individual speakers for the left, center, right, left surround, and right surround channels. The left, center, and right channel speakers are essentially identical to the acclaimed M&K Xenon LCR -25, each using a very high -performance 1" fabric -dome Neodymium tweeter and a high -output 3" polypropylene woofer.

Each channel utilizes M&K's exclusive Phase -FocusedTM crossover, which is a element critical to the speaker's ability to produce smooth response and even coverage of sound throughout the listening area. The front channel speakers have individual acoustically isolated sealed enclosures.

Each surround channel is reproduced by a high -quality 3.25" "full -range" driver mounted on the left and right sides of the cabinet, respectively.

Of course, the MPS -45 is magnetically shielded so that it can be placed directly on top of a direct -view television without distorting the picture.

To complete a two -speaker full -bandwidth surround system, the MPS -45 can be used in combination with any M&K Powered Subwoofer. The appropriate model can be determined based on room size and budget.

The MPS -45 is available in a black finish with a choice of black or silver cloth grilles.

Like all M&K satellite speakers, the MPS -45 is covered by M&K's 10 year parts and labor warranty. This product is now in production and shipping.

Celebrating its 30th year, Chatsworth, California's M&K Sound has been a pioneering leader in the fields of high -end loudspeakers and subwoofers for the home and studio environments and both analog and digital audiophile recording since 1974.
