Outline GTO Line Array

Since 1973 Outline have been applying that Italian passion and design flair to the science of designing loudspeaker systems and associated technologies. The roots of the company lie with founder Guido Noselli, who as a young musician was dissatisfied with the audio quality being delivered to his audiences. His ambition for sonic improvement coincided with the emergence of the disco scene of the mid-70s and the subsequent demand for powerful, full-range loudspeaker systems for the Italian ‘super clubs' of the day. Outline was born.

Over the past 40 years, Outline has pioneered a number of products and technologies that enhance not only their own products but those of their contemporaries too. A good example is the ‘ET System', a computer-controlled turntable which greatly simplifies the measurement of the polar dispersion characteristics of loudspeakers. Designed originally for in-house use only, this remarkable device (upgraded to the ET 250-3D in 2008) has since been purchased by many of the world's best-known loudspeaker manufacturers as well as various universities, institutes and multinational companies working within the field of acoustics.

Similarly, Outline engineers developed and refined the Unimetal® concept for compression driver diaphragms. This process, unique to Outline, produces diaphragms which are extremely thin and light yet retain the necessary structural rigidity by incorporating the voice coil and suspension into a single component. They dissipate heat very quickly and are also extraordinarily efficient at converting electrical energy into acoustic output, resulting in a noticeably more natural and dynamic reproduction.

Outline's headquarters in Brescia, near Milan in northern Italy, houses all the principal activities of the company.  While many of companies have moved some or all of their manufacturing offshore, all Outline products are still 100% manufactured in Italy.

Their dedicated R&D team includes professors and graduates in both acoustics and physics. Their deep theoretical expertise is balanced by the decades of hands-on experience of their colleagues, resulting in designs that combine valid acoustical theory with real-world practicality.

After 40 years, Outline remain absolutely committed to researching and designing professional tools that allow creative people to deliver their art to audiences of every size in any location.

The new GTO (Grand Touring Outline) line-source system is a great example of the restless pursuit of perfection - an integrated suite of complementary products and accessories that provide a complete audio ‘toolbox' to the busy production company. Similarly, the iMode concept provides unparalleled real-time access to system control using a simple and familiar web browser, a first in professional audio.

Outline - designed and manufactured without compromise and created with Italian passion for people who care as much as we do.
