“With its integration into the EAW Anya system, Neutrik is truly the connection to an entirely new way to deliver sound,” notes Jeff Rocha, EAW president. “It’s only logical that a product as adaptive as Anya allows customers access to audio and control via the Ethercon connector and the ability to safely connect and disconnect live power via the TRUE1 connector. Together, we free engineers to focus on managing the audience experience, not the system, opening entirely new paths for what’s possible in live sound delivery.”
Steven Slate, president of Slate Media Technology, adds, “It’s an honor to be chosen as a Premier Neutrik Partner. We use Neutrik connectors in our award winning hardware audio products and trust their quality and reliability over anything else in the industry.”
Peter Milbery, president of Neutrik USA,states, “We are fortunate to be involved with so many amazing manufacturers in the professional audio industry. This program is an excellent opportunity for industry professionals to learn about new and innovative products that incorporate Neutrik connectors.
“We constantly discuss new product designs and debate which ones should be included in the Top 10. It’s not an easy job. We believe that promoting cutting edge products that utilize our connectivity solutions benefits not just Neutrik and our partner companies, but most importantly, it benefits professional users by making them aware of these cutting-edge solutions.
“When you look closely at the award, you’ll see that it’s a badge much like a Neutrik employee badge. What this represents to us is that these companies are true partners and a vibrant part of our team,” he concludes. “Presenting these awards is one of the highlights of the year for all of us at Neutrik USA.”
