NAMM 2016: Audix Launches Performance Series Wireless
This year marked one of the busiest NAMM Shows we have had since Audix's inception. Here are a few of the highlights from the show, complete with new product launches, awards, and special artist appearances!
Pre-show construction: Our team sets up our new booth and our brand new stage.
We kicked off the NAMM Show with the launch of our highly anticipated Performance Series Wireless, our new wireless system that makes going from set up to performance as easy as Scan, Sync, Play! The wireless system was a huge hit at the NAMM show, and we're excited to get these systems on the road this year with our artists and engineers.
The beginning of the show was filled with some exciting award presentations and meetings with our reps. We're getting ready for our busiest year yet!
Audix VP of Sales Cliff Castle receives the award for Microphone Line of the Year from Terry Lowe, publisher of MMR Magazine. "Being the recipient of an MMR Dealers Choice Award is a great distinction in recognizing a company's unparalleled commitment to value and quality," Lowe said in a statement.
