The Liberty Platinum Through the Years

The Liberty Platinum Through the Years

When Anchor Audio, Inc. introduced the world to portable sound systems in 1975, their flagship system, the “Liberty,” suddenly became the single name to define the industry. Anchor perfected this model for several years in the old production warehouse in Torrance, CA, and the Liberty finally had its grand debut at Liberty Weekend, the Statue of Liberty Centennial Celebration, on July 3-6, 1986.

The first Liberty model, the MPB 3000/3500, was battery-powered and contained Samson VHF wireless. Additionally, it contained a separate 8” woofer with a Piezo tweeter and horn speaker for voice reinforcement.

The Liberty then evolved into its new model series: the MPV 4500. With this change, it upgraded from its original to a single diaphragm tweeter and contained SHURE VHF wireless.

Next, came the Liberty 6000 model series, which first introduced an optional CD player and UHF diversity wireless receiver.

Today, the Liberty Platinum 7500 model series is a powerful, all-in-one sound system used by many in the pro audio market. The Liberty Platinum consistently ranks performs well under pressure, during events such as school assemblies, large corporate meetings/celebrations, outdoor concerts/shows, half-time shows, sporting events, etc.  Anchor Audio designs sound systems to emphasize the mid-range frequencies in order to improve vocal intelligibility. Anchor uses high quality neodymium speakers for crisp, pure sound in a distortion-free enclosure. This guarantees that the Liberty Platinum will deliver a clear presentation to every audience member.

The enclosure is made with a lightweight, UV treated polypropylene that is scratch-resistant and ultra rugged.  The case includes an integrated carrying handle and speaker stand receptacle. The control panel is recessed for the protection of inputs and knobs.  The Liberty offers 120 watts of power in AC mode and 100 watts of power in DC mode.  It even has an optional built-in MP3 or CD player and a USB port to charge your USB device.  The dual wireless receivers also offer great additions to this feature-packed base model. The standard Liberty sound system includes two wired microphone inputs capable of receiving both unbalanced ¼ inch and balanced XLR signals via the clever combination input jack, a 5V USB power output, and a 12V DC power output.  It also introduced a 10-inch neodymium woofer (which adds more low end base to the system), the LED bar indicator (which indicates charging status), field-upgradable UHF diversity wireless, surface-mount circuit board technology with low-lead content, and Neutrik Speakon technology, a Universal microphone jack, versatile RCA and a stereo mini-plug to the line. Efficient battery management of the two 12 volt batteries keep the Liberty Platinum running loud and clear for up to six hours on a single charge, and the batteries are user accessible and easy to replace. Time and changing technology have urged and inspired the Liberty to carry the many options it provides today.

Note from the Chairman:

“The Liberty portable sound system has evolved over the years to incorporate the latest technology in audio and wireless electronics, speaker construction, enclosure design and battery power.  Anchor Audio’s mission is to deliver portable sound systems which are extraordinarily clear, reliable and easy to operate.  As the world develops components or materials which allow us to improve the performance of our products, we will redesign the products to deliver those improvements to our customers. “

                                 -David Jacobs, Chairman of the Board

When it comes to clear speech projection the Liberty Platinum beats the competition. Stephen White (SK2 W) of the United States Navy said, “Jealousy, plain and simple, was the motive for the purchase.  Simply put, we have to have the best. We use the Liberty in an airplane hangar for large crowds, and the people in the back of crowd can hear every word.”
