A year-end countdown of the 20 most-read articles on PSW in 2016.
PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz

As we turn the page on 2016, we’re happy to present the 20 articles that were the most-read over this past year on ProSoundWeb.

Note that some of the articles that delivered top results over the past 12 months were actually written and posted over a year ago, but they continue to prove of high interest and value to our worldwide readership.

In addition, some very popular articles posted more recently have not had as much time to accumulate traffic as others that have been posted for a longer period of time. We suspect you’ll see some of those fine articles on next year’s list.

All of the top 20 for 2016 are now listed below. Enjoy.
