Vero array gets straight to the point
While resembling a linear line array in appearance, the new Vero system is decidedly to the point. ‘While Tony Andrews recognised the time and manpower benefits of rigging a vertical array, he definitely wasn’t prepared to compromise the audio standards that he and John Newsham have lived and breathed for over 40 years,’ reads a press release for the British manufacturer.
The resulting system merely resembles the format of a line array, and comprises six different horn-loaded cabinets – the V60 mid-high, V90 mid-high and V315 mid-bass, with a choice of V221, V124 or V132 for bass. The V60s, V90s and V315s all have identical dimensions, says the manufacturer, enabling them to be flown in the same vertical array. The groundstacked V221, V124 or V132 offer differing amounts of low frequency extension. The entire system is powered by Lab.gruppen’s PLM 20K44 amplifiers, three of which and the main distros are housed in a dedicated rack.
