New York (November 20, 2006)–EAW reports “massive” sales in Europe of its KF730 compact line array system. The manufacturer claims year-to-date sales topping the $2 million mark, reportedly with further “significant sales” scheduled before the end of the year.
European technical sales manager, Sean Martin noted, “We have customers all over Europe, from as far afield as Rumania–where we’ve just sold another large system via our distributors, Stage Expert–Portugal, Spain, and even Iceland, to name but a few. We have an extremely strong network of well over forty European distributors who, in conjunction with our own application support specialists, have worked particularly hard holding line array demonstrations across the continent. This commendable effort has been especially fruitful in Eastern Europe, and also in Spain where the sterling work of our distributor, Pro3, resulted in the sale of 48 pieces into a single installation.”
Martin also noted expected technological developments within the EAW family as being of particular interest to KF730 owners. “Early 2007 will see the first shipments of EAW’s new UX8800 digital loudspeaker processor which offers Gunness Focussing to both our line array products for even greater system performance. This is an extremely important development as it effectively offers customers a complete system upgrade for both KF730 and KF760 for just the price of the processor, transforming what is already a totally modern, world-class system into a truly next-generation product.”
