MARCOUSSIS, France – August 2022 – Since its unveiling during the L-Acoustics keynote event in Paris this past May, the revolutionary new LA7.16i amplified controller has received unanimous praise. PLASA Show visitors will discover how to “amplify differently” with the new LA7.16i at Booth J1 on the show floor this September. 

LA7.16i surmounts the limitations of current high-power amplifier configurations used in most installation projects. Improving flexibility and efficiency, especially in multi-channel scenarios, LA7.16i is a lower cost-per-channel solution, consuming 30% less energy when idle. LA7.16i has a distinctive 16×16 architecture in a 2U chassis with seamless Milan-AVB redundancy. Each of the 16 output channels delivers up to 1,300 watts at 8 ohms or 1,100 watts at 4 ohms. Its high-efficiency design benefits medium to large-scale applications, where rack space and weight limitations may be a concern.

Also on show will be the new Soka colinear line source and its companion SB6i subwoofer, also first seen in May. Accompanying them will be X4i and the SB10i subwoofer, which provide exciting new creative possibilities for sound designers, interior designers, and architects to shape sound and space to their needs. 

Booth J1 will also house an L-ISA Studio workstation, where visitors can try object-based mixing using L-Acoustics’ concert-proven L‑ISA technology, allowing users to formulate multidimensional audio wherever and whenever they are ready to create.

Developed to improve the workflow and unleash the creative potential of all sound creators, L-ISA Studio seamlessly interfaces with leading digital audio workstations, show control software, and game engines. It also offers compatibility with various 3D audio format outputs, including Dolby Atmos and multi-channel configurations.

The PLASA Show takes place from September 4th to 6th at London Olympia.
