LD Systems unveils ANNY battery-powered all-in-one PA solution

LD Systems has announced the ANNY series – a battery-powered PA system for musicians, singer-songwriters, street art performers, and more. For mobile live gigs, speech reinforcement in clubs and schools, or simply for good sound on the go, far away from any power socket – ANNY is a fully fledged PA system designed to transform any location into a stage.

The ANNY 10 is available at the start of the series. The active two-way full-range loudspeaker with 10" woofer and 1" tweeter combines an integrated six-channel mixer, three-band EQ and effects (reverb, delay), Bluetooth 5.0 streaming, and a footswitch input for hands-free effects control with a compact housing that can be moved around using its wheels and telescopic handle. The connection options include two microphone/line combo inputs, a stereo channel with 3.5 mm jack (AUX) and RCA inputs. The ANNY 10 also features a battery life of up to 25 hours (ECO mode) or five hours at maximum volume.

In addition to the basic version, LD Systems also offers the ANNY 10 as a set version with up to two wireless microphones. For this purpose, the ANNY has two rear slots for receiver modules with their own volume control and sync function, which can be retrofitted separately if required. Users can choose from sets with one or two handheld wireless microphones, one or two headset microphones including bodypack transmitters, or a combination of handheld and headset microphones. All wireless components can be purchased individually and are also compatible with future ANNY models.

For voice applications and announcements while music is playing, the ANNY 10 has a DSP-based VOCAL mode, along with a priority function that can be activated. In the settings, users can specify which connected microphone – whether wired or wireless – should be prioritised. As soon as the selected microphone is used, ANNY reduces the volume of all other signals, ensuring that announcements can be heard clearly and distinctly at all times.

Meanwhile, the True Wireless Stereo (TWS) function allows users to connect two ANNY 10s wirelessly to enjoy music in stereo – a quick and easy upgrade to provide powerful sound for larger events and parties. For mobile use in wind and weather, LD Systems offers an optional, water-repellent transport bag with additional storage space.

The LD Systems ANNY 10 is now available. In the second half of the year, the ANNY series will be expanded to include the even more compact ANNY 8.
