By PSW Staff • September 20, 2017 The Live Sound International (LSI) Loudspeaker Demo — a.k.a., “The Ultimate Audio Experience” — is coming to the Worship Facilities Expo (WFX) in Dallas this October, presenting the unique opportunity to listen to, evaluate, and compare 26 top professional loudspeaker systems in a controlled listening environment. The event, which is free to attend, has attracted more than 3,500 attendees over the past several years. It will be held in an exhibit hall (Hall C) in conjunction with WFX at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas on October 10-12. (Register here.) Note that a special kick-off demo session will be held on Tuesday evening (October 10, beginning at 6 pm) for audio professionals and church sound personnel who may not be able to attend the daytime sessions. This year’s format will feature demo sessions for both portable and compact loudspeaker systems hosted in one area. (Compact systems are larger-format, flown loudspeakers. Portable systems are smaller-format, ground-based loudspeakers.) During each demo session, the systems are fed identical music tracks. Listeners can evaluate what they hear and also observe each system’s scale, components and other important details, in addition to getting further technical details and pricing information from qualified representatives of each company participating in the demo. Also note that manufacturers will present 20-minute individual demo sessions, highlighting and further explaining their own systems and technology. Participating loudspeaker companies include: Adamson Systems Engineering Clair Brothers Community Professional D.A.S. Audio dBTechnologies Electro-Voice K-array Martin Audio NEXO RCF Renkus-Heinz Tannoy/Turbosound TW Audio Technology sponsors for the event include: Yamaha (console and stage boxes) Lectrosonics (wireless systems) Rational Acoustics (system measurement and level monitoring) Furman (power conditioning/UPS) Audinate (Dante networking) Link (system interconnect) And, as usual, there will be great prizes awarded via random drawings following each full demo session.
