I,m curious to know if ketron have inherited some staff from generalmusic as they did a very good range of lem speakers, i wonder if they have took some of the staff and technology.

Any ideas

I remember I had a keyboard speaker with built in amp/mixer made by solton, which was ketron and it sounded good. I have total faith in whatever ketron puts out. I never had any major problem with their products and I've been using them for over 15 years.

I never heard a built-in speaker in an arranger that was anything more than rubbish. Compared to even those Podium's, they are all boxy, nasty gutless wonders as far from flat as is possible to get...

I was refering to those keyboard amps like the one roland makes. Solton/Ketron made speakers like that along with other typs of speakers and they had a great sound to them.

Sorry, but likewise for the keyboard amps... (OK, not gutless, but still anything but flat).

About the only way to hear your arranger without coloring the sound unacceptably are either studio monitors or a GOOD home hi-fi system for home use, and good quality (which doesn't NECESSARILY mean expensive!) PA speakers - powered or unpowered is fine.

Basically, if you hear a noticeable difference in response between a good stereo system or studio monitors, and whatever you are currently playing through, you aren't hearing your arranger in all it's glory... and neither is your audience.

They have a nice looking set of speakers, clean lines, looks very professional. I wonder what the specs are. Hopefully they will also hit the states so I can give them a whirl.

Given Ketron's price premium when it comes to arrangers, I wouldn't expect them to be very competitive price-wise here in the US... not to mention an almost non-existent dealership network.

But if the thought of matching PA and keyboard logos gets your aesthetic juices flowing, and price is unimportant, I can see them being just the ticket...

I just wonder who Ketron contracted to make the speakers! RCF, or even better, PODIUM?
