JHS wows crowds with the all-new HK Audio LUCAS Nano 300 at PLASA Focus Leeds 2012
Worldwide trade distributor John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd. unleashed the HK Audio LUCAS Nano 300 on crowds at PLASA Focus
Leeds 2012 at the Leeds Royal Armouries on April 17th and 18th, along with the current HK Audio, Studiomaster, Lab.gruppen, Lake
and LA Audio ranges.
The show was a resounding success for JHS Pro Audio, with the LUCAS Nano's diminutive dimensions causing surprise and awe
whenever it was demoed. The next step up the evolutionary ladder for HK's prosperous LUCAS line, the Nano 300 is a revolution in
LUCAS Nano's ultra-compact subwoofer and two fist-sized satellites (which only weigh 10kg together) astonished and amazed with an
audio experience that rivals far larger systems.
The subwoofer houses the electronics and a versatile three-channel mixing console so that LUCAS Nano 300 is ready for immediate
use without any additional equipment. The two satellites lock into a transport bay on the subwoofer with a simple twist of the wrist, and
its comfortable grips allow the entire system to be easily carried in just one hand.
LUCAS Nano 300’s application range is almost unlimited. It is a phenomenally portable sound reinforcement solution for presenters and
entertainers, a monitoring system for e-drums and high-quality desktop multimedia, a near-field PA for smaller fair events, and so much
more. The options are bounded only by the limits of users' imaginations.
The classic setup with stereo satellites is easily reconfigured as a mono system for applications requiring higher sound pressure and
greater range, and a range of accessory extend LUCAS Nano's capabilities even further. Current offerings include the proven Add-On
Package featuring poles and a tripod, as well as tabletop tripods that may also be used as wall mounts.
Showcased alongside the Nano were prime examples from the Studiomaster range, which are now distributed exclusively in the UK and
Eire by JHS, and a number of other items from HK Audio, Lab.gruppen, Lake and LA Audio. HK Audio also powered two seminar rooms
throughout the show, with a SoundCaddy One – the world's fastest PA – and a super-portable Elements system providing crystal clear
sound for a series of well-attended presentations, while the Armouries continued to use their HK Audio house PA system to make
Alan Smith, JHS' Executive Director Sales & Marketing, said: “We were pleased to be back at PLASA Focus where the show had retained
its intimate and friendly atmosphere. It was a great opportunity to catch up with our Pro Audio customers large and small; timely too because
of the new HK Audio Elements Plus, LUCAS Nano 300 and Linear 5 products. We look forward to seeing our Pro Audio customers again for
PLASA at Earls Court in September and in-between of course at the JHS Event in June.”
