Yamaha Audioversity A Success

Publish date:

NASHVILLE, TN—More than 475 audio professionals braved August’s high heat and humidity in Nashville to attend the first Audioversity two-day event held by Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems (YCAS). End user customers, AV integrators and consultants, students, house of worship audio staff, Yamaha dealers and NEXO reps, all agreed Yamaha Audioversity was an event not to be missed with many wishing it lasted a third day.

“This was a once in a lifetime event, more focused than a trade show,” stated David DeVincentis, systems integrator/installer, Technical Services Corporation. “You knew ahead of time from the marketing materials what you were getting into so that you could make a clear decision on what panels, sessions, and demos you wanted to attend. The schedule was so packed that I wish Audioversity was a three-day event.”

There were plenty of events to choose from with most people attending them all. Standing-room-only M7CL and LS9 Digital Mixer Overviews, Mixing Techniques, Tips and Tricks, the Art and Science of Mixing Contemporary Worship, Simple Audio Solutions, EtherSound Networking for Live Sound, the NEXO GEO Family Listen and Learn, and Point-n-Shoot Systems featuring the new Yamaha DSR active speakers, were just some of the classes on the schedule.
