2B Heard Takes UK Distribution for innosonix

2B Heard is proud to introduce a new range of innovative multi-channel amplifiers, having been appointed as the new exclusive UK representative for Germany’s innosonix GmbH. Effective immediately, the agreement sees 2B Heard offer full distribution and support for the manufacturer’s innovative ranges of advanced multi-channel Class-D installation amplifiers.

Formed in 2009 as an engineering start-up, Coburg-based innosonix identified an increasing demand for high-density channel amplifiers to fulfil home automation, marine and technical acoustics, as well as 3D immersive audio applications. The resulting product range is centred around multi-channel amplifiers with a strong focus on flexibility.

Accordingly, the recently launched MAXX series offers a remarkable 32 configurable input and output channels combined with a host of advanced features such as FPGA-based DSP with FIR and IIR filters, Class-D output stages, full remote monitoring, universal power supplies and input options including AES3, Dante, MADI and AES67. The range also offers web-based software for ease of operation.

The announcement comes at a time of unprecedented growth for 2B Heard, whose recent move into a new dedicated Bedfordshire headquarters coincided with new representation agreements with both Astro Spatial Audio and SSL. The addition of innosonix to the company’s portfolio – also incorporating K-array – creates a powerful blend of solutions for the audio installation sector.

“We’re very excited to represent these hugely innovative amplifiers from such a youthful and forward-looking company,” commented 2B Heard’s Dave Wooster. “There’s absolutely nothing else on the market of a similar nature with such unique capabilities – these amplifiers have the highest channel count that I know of. The products are ideal for any number of installation projects – environments where there are multiple rooms with varied speaker requirements such as theatres, offices, shopping centres, restaurants, museums, fitness facilities… the possibilities are endless. The MAXX series amplifiers are completely configurable with straightforward web-based control software.”

Markus Bätz, CEO of innosonix, added: “We are proud to have found such a competent partner in 2B Heard, who can help us lead the market in multi-channel 3D audio by focusing on these kind of projects. This appointment is a perfect fit with our ongoing development of multi-channel amplifiers, leading the way to ever more cost-effective and smart 3D sound systems.”
