Since its establishment in 1985, the TEC Awards have honored the very best in both the technologies and creativity that go into the world of professional audio. Ocean Way Audio is very proud to have been nominated again for the 34th annual TEC Awards, this time for the combination of our HR3.5 Reference Monitor and our A-4100 Amplifier. The awards ceremony will be held in January 2019 in conjunction with the NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. Voting for the TEC Award winners will commence later this year.
“We are very excited to have the HR3.5/A-4100 system included in the TEC Award nominations,” says Allen Sides, founder and CEO of Ocean Way Audio. “We truly believe that with this system, we’ve created the perfect high-end monitoring solution that is still affordable for professional recording and monitoring environments.”
The HR3.5 Reference Monitor is a stand-alone or soffit-mounted monitor speaker that delivers a frequency response of 20 Hz to 22 kHz with a solid SPL of 120db. It incorporates an integrated 2-way dual-horn system with a l” HF and 8″ MF drivers, mechanically time-aligned with twin 12″ sub-bass drivers per channel. Powering the HR3.5 system are Ocean Way Audio’s state-of-the-art A-4100 amplifiers, offering both analog and digital inputs, 96 kHz and 24 bit sampling, tri-amped delivering 3,400 watts per channel of pure power. At the heart of the acoustic design is OWA’s geometrically-complex, stone-casted dual/hybrid waveguide system.
