HEDD debuts the Type 30
HEDD (Heinz Electrodynamic Designs) has started production of its flagship product, the Type 30 midfield studio monitor. Although the manufacturer is relatively new, it was established by Klaus Heinz, founder and former head of R&D at ADAM Audio and his son, mastering engineer Frederik Knop, both of whom bring a wealth of studio monitoring expertise to the table.
An analogue three-way system, the Type 30 is designed for use during in-depth mixing sessions, high-end recording, broadcast applications, mastering and video and television postproduction. It houses 7-inch bass and 4-inch midrange woofers with diaphragms made from honeycomb-sandwich material, as well as Mr Heinz’ HEDD Air Motion Transformer tweeter design, and four of the latest generation ICEpower 300W amplifiers.
Meanwhile, the frequency response is between 32Hz and 50kHz and the Type 30 is also equipped with a modular input card system via an empty slot on the back of the unit, named the HEDD Bridge, which provides the options for connecting via USB 2.0, AES3, wireless and AES67/Dante AoIP. XLA and RCA connections also feature.
With 38mm thick frontplates, the cabinet’s construction makes for 530mm wide x 280mm high x 338mm deep dimensions and a weight of 23.3kg.
