Neumann&Müller Event Technology (N&M) has announced that it has purchased a number of d&b audiotechnik Y7P loudspeaker systems and trained its staff with this technology.
The Y7P loudspeaker is a compact, high performance point source loudspeaker with high directivity and rotatable HF horns.
With this new technology, N&M says that its audio consoles and stage boxes are now Dante-enabled (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet), making its audio system fully networked.
This allows for better control and monitoring of all parameters of the amplifiers from the mixing position as the digital amp system can be adjusted in real-time during an event when the acoustic environment changes.
In terms of its benefits, N&M says that its clients can now avail of a compact system that provides very high sound pressure levels. It is also cost effective due to the fact that fewer units are required to achieve good quality sound.
Additionally, the compact design of each speaker (58cm high and 25cm wide) ensures that it has a small visual footprint thereby making it economical in size and weight and saving the client some venue space.
Bill Pugh, senior partner at the firm commented: “Upgrading is an ongoing process in our company. Our technical sourcing department is in close contact with our main equipment suppliers to make the technical investment decisions based on the latest advances in technology and event requirements.”
He also added that audio is a challenging area due to the esoteric nature of the audience’s perception to sound.
“It is a hugely complex subject that requires many years of training and experience to understand and implement, but this makes the successful sound design very rewarding,” Pugh said.
