JBL Studio 190 floorstanding loudspeaker wins European Loudspeaker Of The Year 2011-2012 at the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) awards.

SYDNEY, 23 August 2011 –
JBL is proud to announce that the JBL Studio 190 floorstanding speaker has won the award for European Loudspeaker of the Year 2011-2012 at the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) awards. These prestigious awards are uniquely decided upon by representatives of the Hi-Fi reviewing community from across Europe.

One of the most recent additions to JBL’s home speaker range, the unique design and outstanding performance of the Studio 190 made a strong impression on the judging panel.

The judges concluded: “Striking from the first glance, JBL’s ‘Weave’ design ensures its Studio 190 floorstander will stand out from the crowd. This three-way loudspeaker, which includes a pair of 165mm bass units, sounds powerful, dynamic and detailed, offering a great insight into all types of music – including movie scores.

“Crucially, while the Studio 190 has an exotic appearance, it remains easy to drive and is the ideal partner for a great many entry-level amplifiers and AV receivers. So much loudspeaker, so small a price tag – how does JBL do it?”

Powerful and accurate in any listening environment, the Studio 190 is a three-and-a-half-way floorstanding loudspeaker featuring dual 165mm – low frequency and 100mm midrange PolyPlas™ drivers, and CMMD® Lite high frequency domes with proprietary Bi-Radial® waveguides. These combined technologies offer exceptional clarity and realism with outstanding bass response.

The JBL Studio 190 loudspeakers are available in Australia with a RRP of $1499 /pair.

The Studio 200 System, a 6-piece home theatre speaker package featuring the Studio 190,  Studio 130 bookshelf monitors, the Studio 120C centre channel and the Sub150P subwoofer, is also available with a RRP of $3199.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
