At AES, Meyer Sound will show Amie, the company’s first studio monitor in more than two decades. Developed to meet the needs of Skywalker Sound, Amie is designed to deliver clarity in production environments —film, broadcast or gaming post production — where accurate translation to larger systems is key.
Meyer’s Amie has been designed as a linear sound system that extends the translation of the Meyer Sound Acheron screen channel line to studio monitoring. The new monitor features a waveguide design that, according to the company, offers uniform coverage and precision imaging.
According to Meyer Sound, its flat frequency and phase response and low distortion allows sound professionals to listen for long periods of time without strain and fatigue. Built in Berkeley, Amie will begin shipping in November.
Tasked by Skywalker Sound to create a new studio monitor with precision translation, exceptional power and a great price point, Meyer Sound has created a product that brings tremendous accuracy for everything from the intricate details of dialogue to dynamic music tracks to explosive action sequences.
Amie is very accurate for dialog EQ evaluation in postproduction and despite its light weight, can handle as much power as needed even when monitoring very loud sequences.
Built to last in Berkeley, Calif. with the highest quality materials and Meyer Sound's renowned quality control, Amie is the ideal studio monitor for film, broadcast or gaming post-production.
Amie is priced at $3,500 for one speaker and $3,000 each for up to four.
