With MOVE 8, HK Audio is expanding the PREMIUM PR:O series with a battery-powered multifunctional loudspeaker that offers all musicians, singer-songwriters, presenters and entertainers professional sound in a compact format and at the same time maximum flexibility when no power socket is available. Thanks to innovative features such as remote control via app and the ‘Hot Swap’ function, which allows uninterrupted battery replacement without the use of tools, MOVE 8 delivers virtually endless sound enjoyment for any party, moderation or presentation. Two rechargeable batteries are already included in the scope of delivery. The integrated 4-channel mixer and Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming make the lightweight battery-powered speaker an ideal plug & play PA system for use wherever no power is available but where the highest audio quality and great endurance are required.
Facts & features
Familiar PREMIUM PR:O sound quality
MOVE 8 $1248 delivers the familiar transparent PREMIUM PR:O full-range sound with high speech intelligibility and fatigue-free listening. A highly efficient 8″ bass/midrange speaker offers powerful and impressive performance even at high volumes, with long battery life at the same time. The 1″ driver with horn provides an excellent and balanced sound up to 20 kHz. All components are built into a light and stable multi-functional wooden housing, which can be placed vertically on a speaker stand thanks to the speaker stand flange or horizontally as a floor monitor.
Uninterrupted battery replacement
What makes MOVE 8 unique compared to its competitors is the Dual Battery Slot – a slot that can hold the supplied batteries. The loudspeaker can be powered by one or both batteries simultaneously. The highlight – during operation, a tool-free battery replacement can be performed without interruption (‘Hot Swap’ function). Even Bluetooth audio streaming remains.
Integrated 4-channel mixer
The integrated 4-channel mixer with modern Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming, Master control and Aux input make an external mixing console unnecessary for most applications with microphone, keyboard, acoustic guitar or DJ equipment. In addition, the mixer offers direct access to EQ and Reverb for channels 1 – 3. Thanks to the switchable cab simulation, guitar pedals connected to the instrument input sound authentic.
Remote app for remote control and karaoke function
The free MOVE 8 REMOTE App is not just a remote control for your MOVE 8 – it also adds some sophisticated features that make it even more fun. The App can be used to control all the channel settings (EQ, reverb, volume) as well as the master volume. In addition, a 2-band EQ is available for channel 4 (Aux/Bluetooth), and the karaoke function can be activated for Bluetooth audio streaming and Aux In including Vocal Cancellation and Transpose. The integrated effects (chorus, tremolo, and flange) as well as the 3 Celestion cab simulations can be selected on channel 3 and can be used to optimize the sound of an electric guitar, for example. All EQ settings can also be stored and quickly recalled.
