Moscow (January 16, 2007)–I.S.P.A. recently took on Adamson Distribution for Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. I.S.P.A., which is headquartered in Moscow, is involved in various aspects of professional sound, including sound reinforcement, installation, public address, recording, radio broadcast and musical instruments sales. Other pro audio brands represented include T.C. Electronic, Sennheiser and dbx.
I.S.P.A., a Russian pro audio distributor, recently held a three-day seminar about Adamson PA systems.Key Personnel includes Elena Porojnikova, head of the commercial department, Vadim Nerokhov, head of engineering and audio development for installations, and Yuri Cheshev, the Adamson brand manager. Recently the three hosted a three-day training seminar designed for sound engineers and freelancers from various sound companies around Russia, as well as the ISPA engineering team. Adamson Systems’ Jesse Adamson and Adam MacGillivray flew over to teach the seminar.
The three-day seminar took place at the oldest Proscenium Theatre in Moscow: the Operetta Theatre. Day one consisted of true line source array theory, Audiocore management, power and cabling configurations, and concluded with a rigging demonstration and flying of eight Y10 cabinets on each side of the theatre’s proscenium.
Day two saw four SpekTrix ground stacked on two SpekTrix subs per side and a T-21 Sub presentation paired with the flown The Yaxis from the previous day. Design theory and application configurations were also covered. Lab.gruppen’s Claus Behren joined the Adamson Team in presenting gain structure, power compatibility and configurations in conjunction with the Adamson products.
Day three was reserved for the I.S.P.A. engineering team who got a Shooter Software seminar. The event lacked the usual literature packages that aid the presentation, as well as swag that got held at the Russian customs indefinitely. Adam MacGillivray later observed that “they were a very interested people, smart and dedicated, who asked just the right questions; it made for an easy exchange of information despite with the language barrier.”
Due to the logistics and huge import tariffs, bringing the product to the end customer can be challenging and more expensive than bringing it to most continental European countries, but I.S.P.A. has already imported several Yaxis systems with its sub extension T21’s to Russia, and a SpekTrix rig to a touring circus company in Kazakhstan.
