Beaverton, OR/MUSIC Group City, Zhongshan, China (March 11, 2011)--The MUSIC Group has installed 44 Audio Precision APx515 audio analyzers at its Zhongshan production facility.
The order for the MUSIC Group, which is the owner of the Behringer, Midas and Klark Teknik brands, was placed though AP Technology, the exclusive Chinese distributor for APx515 manufacturer Audio Precision.
The MUSIC Group's test infrastructure was already quite comprehensive with its own UL lab and Faraday cage. The APx515 analyzers add state-of-the-art audio test capability so the MUSIC Group can verify components as well as their own finished products. In addition to improving overall quality, the MUSIC Group estimates that the APx515 analyzers have already cut production line test times by 30 percent.
"We believe testing does more than improve the quality of our products; it increases speed and reduces overhead, which ultimately translates to better value for our customers," says the MUSIC Group CEO Uli Behringer. "As the most cost-effective and powerful audio analyzer in its class, the Audio Precision APx515 fits within our strategy perfectly."
"With their commitment to quality and a real-world need for speed and affordability, the APx515 could have been custom designed for the MUSIC Group," says Dave Schmoldt, president of Audio Precision. "It's a perfect match and I'm very happy to see such a measurable return on investment for the Group."
