Consumer Electronics: Mackie Audio and DDR4 Arrive In Sri Lanka


We’ve got quite a bit of variety in the newsfeed today. To start with, DDR4’s a topic we’ve been hearing about on and off over the years, but we’ve never seen them on a shelf ready to be taken away. Until now.


These nondescript sticks of RAM, spotted at Redline Technologies, Majestic City, are 32 GB kits – four sticks of 8 GB each. As you can see, they’re from Crucial, a Tier 1 RAM brand owned by Micron, one of the world’s largest memory manufacturers. Crucial is a rare brand here, known mostly for overclockable gaming ram (a market which, in Sri Lanka, is dominated by Corsair, Gskill and Kingston). Expect these to cost in the vicinity of Rs 80,000.

Lastly, Mackie, the US-based audio equipment specialist, was officially launched in Sri Lanka by Multi Audio Visual. We’re told to expect audio mixers, indoor and outdoor speakers and studio monitors.


These look like desktop speakers, but they’re not: expect to shell out quite a lot of money for them. Mackie tends to have a reputation for accurate audio, so depending on the price range, some of these might be on your watchlist if you’re setting up a studio.
