Ascendo Immersive Audio at CEDIA 2019

Spotted at CEDIA 2019: Ascendo Immersive Audio speakers and subwoofers from Germany. While I did not get a chance to hear the company's speakers at this show, I did check out a demo of its products at CEDIA back in 2016 was impressed at the time. It certainly looks like serious gear... Big horns, giant subs, powerful concentric driver designs, Ascendo looks like it means business.

"Manufactured in Ansbach, Germany, AIA is dedicated to the development, design and production of state-of-the-art theater systems. Decades of intensive research in the areas of sound generation, sound propagation and sound perception form the basis for the revolutionary technologies that drive cinema loudspeakers from AIA to peak performance close to the ideal loudspeaker. Come learn how high-performance point-source drive units from the professional audio sector combined with state-of-the-art networked DSP control units deliver precise speech intelligibility and unrestrained dynamics."

Looks more like commercial theater equipment IMO. That compression horn looks deadly to healthy hearing.

The website does state that the gear is suitable for commercial theaters. As plenty of crossover at CEDIA, for example Alcons, and this year Klipsch was presenting its commercial Cinema here as a home theater solution as well.
