On the fence with speaker choices? Have a close look at MK Sound!

MK Sound THX 950 System

Those of us who demand huge, lifelike and accurate sound in our rooms need look no further than MK Sound. No other speaker manufacturer receives so much enthusiastic praise for their designs from professional users, reviewers and end users in the home environment than MK Sound. Here is the latest email from our MK USA rep Aldo Filippelli, check out the “testimonials” link:

“As I was finishing a conversation with our MK Professional Director and a rep from Lucasfilm, I felt inclined to make some useful notes and share this info with you. In addition to the popular S150MKII, which is a bookshelf monitor, we also offer the IW150 (inwall) and MP150 (onwall) which are designed in the same format for similar performance, and to match the timbre of the S150MKII. These are available to view on our website: (I have more and better images of each available, if you are interested)

As I had mentioned, MK Sound is the speaker of choice of Lucasfilm for Star Wars and the coming Red Tails movie. Sony Blu-ray studios are also dedicated users and fans of MK Sound and along with Lucasfilm have remastered and recently released the Star Wars Trilogy, using MK Sound in the mixing, editing, and post production studios. I will be at Skywalker Ranch Oct 26 to meet with George Lucas and his staff to sign agreements for our use of their name, logos, and materials, as well as their latest testimonials and endorsements.

Visit AT THE MOVIES and see some blockbusters that have been mixed and edited in the studio using MK Sound speakers. The sound engineers and producers at these studios are truly experts in their craft and rely on the performance and reliability of MK Sound. Following are some testimonials from these accredited and award winning sound experts.

 

“We feel that high performance audio is essential in picture editing and the use of the MK 2510 system, with its excellent dialogue intelligibility, allowed us to catch production sound faults early in the process. In addition, high quality sound can affect an editor’s decisions by providing an enhanced emotional context to a scene. During the production process, our editors were so taken with the quality of sound that a full MK 2510 system was shipped to Leavensden Studios in England, to be used in the cutting of the production dailies.”

–        Paul Matwiy, sound engineer, Star Wars

“We’ve been using MK THX speaker systems on the Star Wars films in both the sound design and picture editing suites. The MK THX speakers’ accuracy and imaging qualities let us hear all the nuances of dialogue, music and sound effects at every stage of the creative process. This gives us the ability to create the powerful, yet subtle and persuasive soundtracks that are the hallmark of the Star Wars films.”

–        Rick McCallum, Producer, Star Wars

 

We are also working on a POS display to feature the S150MKII in a cabinet and driver cutaway, highlighting the technology and features, as well as a backdrop on the display of either Star Wars or Red Tails along with licensed endorsements and testimonials from George Lucas and engineers at Lucasfilm. We will also show the logos and list of other studio users.

 

While the S150MKII and 2510P are used mostly in film studios, the New York Philharmonic, Danish Broadcasting, and others are using for music mixing and editing applications. We soon will be able to add Cirque du Solei and Blueman Group to the list of professional users for music.

 

I share this information as I feel that it may be useful for you and your efforts. Please feel free to share with your associates and customers, and let me know if you would like any additional information, images, or technical details. Thank you for your support!”

 

Best regards,

Aldo
