USA - KK audio labs will introduce its new DS-6 six-inch, two-way powered studio reference monitor at the 2011 NAMM Show this week. KK audio labs, led by industry veteran Keith R. Klawitter, founder and former owner of KRK Systems, is a Southern California company that designs and manufactures high-end audio products for the recording studio and professional live sound markets.

The high-resolution KK audio labs DS-6 monitor speaker features a six-inch low frequency driver utilising proprietary composite cone material together with a one-inch, custom-designed titanium composite high frequency tweeter. KK audio labs amplifier modules deliver 200W to the tweeter and 350W to the woofer respectively.

A feature of the DS series - which also includes the DS-8 eight-inch, two-way powered monitor - is the inclusion of four "meticulously tuned" presets that may be employed to optimize the monitor for any listening environment.
