Great sound. Anywhere.
Small, light, powerful sound, and no need to connect to a mains power source – the new, battery-powered MOVE 8 takes great sound everywhere. Whether it’s a live performance in a local shopping street, a speech at the opening ceremony of the new school playing field, karaoke fun at the Christmas party, an acoustic gig in the hotel bar, a fitness course in a community hall, or simply a garden party – MOVE 8 makes all that possible, without the need for a power outlet.
It is not only the smart battery technology that makes MOVE 8 so valuable, but also its extraordinary wealth of practical and innovative features. For example, there’s the four-channel mixer with reverb effect, Bluetooth audio streaming or wireless remote control via Android and iOS devices, to name but a few. This wireless remote control function also adds a whole host of exclusive features such as the clever karaoke function or the original Celestion speaker simulations for the instrument channel.
All this makes MOVE 8 a sound solution that adapts perfectly to users’ changing needs. Gig after gig. Day after day. That’s the audio of today.
Familiar PREMIUM PR:O sound quality
MOVE 8 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 extended range of functions
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.
