The Live Sound International (LSI) Loudspeaker Demo — a.k.a., “The Ultimate Audio Experience” — is coming to the Worship Facilities Expo (WFX) in Orlando next month (November 13-15), presenting the unique opportunity to listen to, evaluate, and compare at least 20 top professional loudspeaker systems in a controlled listening environment. Attendance is free and open to all attendees of WFX — register here using promo code JIC118.
The event has attracted more than 4,000 attendees over the past several years. It will be held in an exhibit hall (Hall D) in conjunction with WFX at the Orange County Convention Center on International Drive in Orlando.
This year’s format will feature demo sessions for both portable and compact loudspeaker systems hosted in one area. (Compact systems are larger-format, flown loudspeakers. Portable systems are smaller-format, ground-based loudspeakers.)
During each demo session, the systems are fed identical music tracks. Listeners can evaluate what they hear and also observe each system’s scale, components and other important details, in addition to getting further technical details and pricing information from qualified representatives of each company participating in the demo.
Also note that manufacturers will present 20-minute individual demo sessions, highlighting and further explaining their own systems and technology. Participating loudspeaker companies include:
Technology sponsors for the event include:
And, as usual, there will be great prizes awarded via random drawings following each full demo session. Prizes include:
Audinate Dante VIO Adapters
Community Professional CS4 Surface-Mount Loudspeakers
Electro-Voice ND86 Microphones
iSEMcon Reference Measurement Microphones
K-array Duetto Headphones
Link Eurocable Microphone Cables
Rational Acoustics Smaart v8 Licenses & RTA420 Measurement Microphones
