By PSW Staff • March 12, 2019 The Live Sound International (LSI) Loudspeaker Demo — a.k.a., “The Ultimate Audio Experience” — is coming to the USITT 2019 Annual Conference & Stage Expo in Louisville, KY on Wednesday, March 20 and Thursday, March 21, providing the unique opportunity to listen to and evaluate more than a dozen top professional loudspeaker systems in a controlled listening environment. (Register here for this free event using promo code LS2019.) Hosted at the beautiful ballroom at the Louisville Marriott Downtown adjacent to the Kentucky International Convention Center (site of the USITT show), the demo will offer a line-up of seven leading manufacturers presenting both larger- and smaller-format loudspeaker systems (including line arrays and subwoofers) in several full demo sessions, along with 20-minute individual demonstration sessions presented by the manufacturers on both days. (The Marriott is directly connected to the convention center via a short skybridge, with the ballroom on the skybridge/second level of the hotel.) During each full demo session at the event, which is open to all USITT attendees, audio professionals, church sound personnel and other interested parties, 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. Participating loudspeaker companies, in alphabetical order, include: Alcons Audio DAS Audio Innovox MUSIC Tribe RCF Renkus-Heinz TW AUDiO Technology sponsors for the event: Lectrosonics (wireless mic systems), Midas (console and stage boxes), and Rational Acoustics (level measurement/verification). And, as usual, there will be great prizes awarded via random drawings following each full demo session, including gear from Audio-Technica, Electro-Voice, Rational Acoustics, RCF, Link USA and others.
