Back for another year, 17 leaders in the audio industry are showcasing their latest products in the audio demos rooms, set up on levels 1 and 2. Demonstrations run every other hour, and each company lists demo times outside the room.

As an added bonus, this year the demo rooms opened a day early, offering attendees a chance to spend more time hearing what these companies have on display.

“We opened (the rooms) a day early because people wanted to make sure they could get to them,” said InfoComm executive director and CEO Dave Labuskes, CTS, RCDD.

At Sennheiser’s demo room (W205A), you can listen to the unique K-Array Anakonda KAN200, a flexible, 2-meter long speaker array that can be manipulated into different positions based on the users needs. K-Array also demonstrates the Tornado KT20 and KT22 speakers with LED, two small, clear sounding speakers ideal for lounge installations.

Martin Audio (W203C) is showcasing an up front demo of its latest product, the MLA mini, a small-scale, portable and installed sound speakers in Martin’s MLA line.

Among this year’s other companies hosting demo rooms are Adamson, Avid, Carvin Audio, Community Professional Loudspeakers, d&b audiotechnik, Danley Sound Labs, Duran Audio BV, Harman, KV2 Audio, Meyer Sound Laboratories, RCF USA, Renkus-Heinz, Shure, TC Group and Vue Audiotechnik.

To see more than just loudspeakers, the Audio Pavilion in Hall A provides audio professionals and enthusiasts with displays of everything from mixers to microphones to network systems, perfect for live events, conferences and anything in between.

House Research Institute is offering free hearing tests this year in Hall A, Booth #A387, providing educational services on how to prevent hearing loss. Hearing tests are offered by appointment during regular show hours.

A Constellation of Sound

The problem with sound is that its quality is inherently dependent upon the room in which it is placed. Put big speakers into a small concrete and drywall box and it will sound different then placing those same speakers into a huge concert venue that is acoustically treated.
