New York, NY (October 17, 2019)—The AES Convention offers several days of overlapping opportunities for attendees to hear from top audio industry figures and share in the latest research and technology information through papers, tutorials, workshops and special events, not to mention face-to-face discussions with colleagues from around the world. But if you want to really dig deep into a piece of gear or hear that P.A. full-throttle, you need to head to the demo rooms. Here’s part two of our overview of what to expect when you get there.
Audio Precision – 1E01
Visitors to Audio Precision’s demo room (1E01) can expect a variety of demonstration stations, as well as several application-focused live presentations.
Audio Precision will be showing APx500 Flex, a newly introduced product that pairs the company’s APx500 audio measurement software with third-party audio interfaces to deliver an audio test solution for cost-sensitive production test applications.
Also taking place in the demo room, an audio test demonstrating the use of the APx555 audio analyzer with high-performance devices such as ADCs and DACs, and an electro-acoustic test covering the measurement of loudspeakers, microphones and headphones. In the latter case, the demo will feature the AECM206 Headphone Test Fixture.
