Features

A portable stereo high-powered PA with high-quality sound.

KONNECT is a portable all-in-one stereo PA system that provides a complete solution for both sound and convenience. It's a single unit that has everything you need for performances, DJ, background music, or MC work in any situation: live shows, parties, dance studios, exhibitions, seminars, or presentations.

Featuring clarity that's unparalleled in any compact speaker, KONNECT delivers both powerful low-end and loudness. At the same time, KONNECT includes conveniences such as an interface that's easy to understand and operate, a rich variety of EQ presets suitable for any source (the VOICING function), and support for wireless control from your smartphone or tablet.

The portable KONNECT is an easy way to get great sound anytime and anywhere.

A multi-function amp that's useful in a variety of situations

For DJ parties with your friends

Experience the powerful sound of KONNECT for dance music. With high output that you wouldn't believe could come from a compact all-in-one stereo speaker, you'll enjoy clear and powerful sound with an ample low range.

For cosy performances in a coffee shop

In a coffee shop or restaurant that lacks a sound system, the KONNECT is an ideal choice for a singer-instrumentalist or for a duo. With a rich array of input jacks, you can connect vocal mics, guitars, keyboards, or other instruments, and use the generous selection of EQ presets (VOICING function) to immediately obtain great sound.

For seminars or talk events

The KONNECT is also perfect for events such as exhibitions, seminars, or presentations within or outside your company. In addition to talk sessions that use two mics, the unit also supports presentations that use audio or background music. This compact unit is easy to transport to your location and set up.

For dance schools or gyms

For dancing or working out to background music streamed from your smartphone via Bluetooth. You can also connect a mic for the instructor or coach. Even users without experience with audio equipment will have no trouble using the KONNECT.

Stunning high power and clarity

The KONNECT features stunningly powerful sound that exceeds its class. While remaining lightweight and compact, it reaches high volumes suitable for the stage. Equipped with a 6.5-inch woofer and two tweeters, it delivers a total of up to 180W of power. A bass reflex structure provides a rich low-range, giving you powerful sound that packs a punch.

In addition, the KONNECT achieves a clear sound image with an excellent sense of separation. The secret to this capability lies in a cutting-edge SHARC DSP and 32-bit digital processing. Experience accurate phase control with an all-in-one stereo speaker, a carefully designed crossover that connects the high and low frequency ranges, a low-noise design that decreases the noise floor, and superb resolution that delivers smooth attacks and crisp clarity. The latest technology and Korg's know-how ensure that the full range will be reproduced with high-quality sound that rivals studio monitors.

Easy operation that anyone can understand

In addition to a panel layout that is clear and concise, every function corresponds to a knob or switch. The KONNECT is designed with an interface that will be intuitive even to non-musicians. There are four input channels, which can be used for both microphones/audio sources and instruments. Each channel is equipped with an independent volume control.

The all-in-one design combines a mixer, power amp, speakers, multi-effect unit, and feedback canceller into a single unit. This eliminates many of the inconveniences of using a conventional PA system, such as the difficulty of transportation, the need to provide speaker cables, the difficulty of finding the best location for the speakers, or the need to find a partner to help you set up. The sturdy front grill also protects the speakers from impacts during transportation. There's a hand-grip that lets you easily carry the unit with a single hand, plus a stylish, high tech design.

A single knob dials in the best sound for any situation

Getting the optimal sound for a given location usually requires the technical skills of a mixing engineer. However, the KONNECT is equipped with a VOICING function that lets you choose complex equalizing preset settings that optimize the sound for the instruments or the background music that's being played - simply by turning a single knob. Now it's easy for anyone to get the perfect sound.

The KONNECT provides five preset types: MUSIC is for enjoying music with powerful sound, MALE VOCAL and FEMALE VOCAL are optimized for male/female vocals or speech, and ELECTRIC GUITAR and ACOUSTIC GUITAR are for guitar performance. By using the dedicated KONNECT App, you can choose from an even wider range of 17 types including BASS GUITAR and KEYBOARD.

These VOICING presets are meticulously set using an EQ with five bands: Lo, Lo Mid, Mid, Hi Mid, and Hi. For every preset, the gain, Q value, frequency, and curve of each individual band are carefully voiced to obtain the ideal equalizing result for that specific situation. Simply by turning a single knob, any user can easily achieve the optimal sound for a variety of situations including a singer-performer, small band, dance music, or various other events.

Remote control from a smartphone

With the spread of digital mixers in recent years, wireless control using a tablet is a must-have in the professional workplace as well. The KONNECT also lets you use the dedicated KONNECT App (supports iOS 8.1 and Android 5.0 or later) to connect via Bluetooth, allowing users to use their smartphone or tablet to wirelessly control the unit. KONNECT can be operated from a listening position without having to walk over to the unit's rear panel.

In addition, KONNECT App satisfies both people who are unfamiliar with mixing as well as people who like to make detailed settings to their own taste. You can switch between STANDARD mode with its simple parameter structure, and ADVANCED mode which lets you edit more detailed parameter settings.

Using the KONNECT App also expands the functionality of the KONNECT. It adds a rich variety of VOICING presets and effects beyond what can be selected from the panel of the unit, and additionally supports more detailed parameter control as well as solo and mute settings. You can also save your mixing settings in three scenes; When holding events in different locations, or for an event with multiple performers, you can use this feature to save the rehearsal settings and then instantly recall them during the actual performance.

Wireless music playback via Bluetooth

Equipped with a generous selection of inputs, the KONNECT also supports Bluetooth audio (using channels 3/4). Use it to provide backing tracks for a live performance, for DJ work at a party, for background music during a speaking event, or for choreographed music in a dance environment. Without any complicated connections, you can easily play back music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet.

High-quality effects

Effects are an indispensable part of a stage performance. Thanks to its high-end SHARC DSP, the KONNECT gives you high-quality effects with unparalleled sound. The unit provides master reverb, and lets you use a single knob to easily adjust the reverb type and level.

Using the KONNECT App allows you to adjust the reverb settings individually for each channel, and also adds three types of effects (compressor, chorus, delay) to each channel. You'll be able to shape the sound optimally for each different source, such as vocals, guitar, or keyboard.

A variety of functions that are useful in any situation

Feedback suppressor:

The unit is equipped with a feedback suppressor (channels 1/2) that prevents acoustic feedback. You won't need to worry about positioning the speaker and mic.

Centre Cancel:

When playing back music, you can use the centre cancel function (channels 3/4) to decrease the sound of the vocal and guitar. This is a useful way to provide karaoke for a singer-instrumentalist or a solo performer, or to optimize a song for use as background music.

Phase and pan:

If the inverted phase causes the sound to be muffled, you can use the phase switch function to reverse the phase. There's also a panning function to adjust the L/R balance (both are available only when using the KONNECT App).

Mountable on the dedicated ST-S80 speaker stand (sold separately)

You can place the KONNECT on the floor, but its 35 mm diameter mounting hole also lets you attach it to the dedicated ST-S80 speaker stand (sold separately). By using the ST-S80 you can create the ideal listening environment at the appropriate height and position.

Put it in a bag and carry it anywhere

A carrying bag (SC-KONNECT) specifically designed for the compact KONNECT is also available for separate purchase. It provides a pocket for storing the power cable and other cables, making it even more convenient to transport your system to the location of use.
