The Vision Behind LEO
LEO represents the culmination of over 35 years of research into linear system technology, and the result is a sound reinforcement system with a tremendous amount of headroom and exceptional fidelity for large-scale live events.
In linear systems, the loudspeaker does just one thing: it faithfully reproduces every sonic element, only louder, without any change in tonality. Now that digital plugins at the console level allow creative effects to be implemented upstream, there is no need to push loudspeakers to the edge of power compression to achieve an effect.
This means that whether you're reproducing heavy metal or classical music, LEO allows you to hear each instrument—vocals, bass, sax, drums, guitar—simultaneously, without any element coloring the other. This is the power of a linear system.
Linearity has always been a core value of the company, and applying linearity to a powerful mechanical device that moves a huge amount of air has been a long road. With LEO and the advent of digital tools, the industry is ready for this new beginning, and so are we.
*The LEO large-scale sound reinforcement system consists of the LEO-M line array loudspeaker, 1100-LFC low-frequency control element, and the Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system.
