Wheatstone Expands Into Commercial Audio

NEW BERN, NC--Wheatstone Corporation has formed a new division, Wheatstone Commercial Audio. Its purpose is to solely focus on the design, development, and manufacturing of audio products specifically for the commercial audio and systems integration markets.

Bernie Farkus has been appointed sales engineer, having spent the last 12 months assisting in the development of the first product offering; the iXO DSP audio platform. "Working at Wheatstone and seeing the design, construction, and capacity of the broadcast division's networked audio system, I realized that there was a tremendous opportunity for a similar product in the commercial audio market and the iXO is the result." Farkus is an audio industry veteran with over 22 years experience who most recently served as a Regional Field Sales Engineer for ClearOne and as a consultant for Waveguide Consulting in Atlanta. When asked for his perspective on his career change, Bernie replied: "I was very impressed by the facility and the people, the integrity of the company, and the opportunity for growth."
