BEAVERTON, OREGON, March 2014: Audio Precision, the recognized standard in audio test, announces a significant investment in Audio Precision test instruments by MUSIC Group for use in the design and production of TURBOSOUND products.
TURBOSOUND joins other MUSIC Group brands using Audio Precision
Following in the footsteps of Music Group’s other industry-leading pro audio brands MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK, British loudspeaker icon TURBOSOUND has purchased Audio Precision (AP) test instruments for use in their new UK research, development and manufacturing facility in Kidderminster. APx audio analyzers will now test every single TURBOSOUND product, from the earliest concept stage, to final production – ensuring the highest standards of sonic performance and reliability.
New AP electro-acoustic test suites raise standards in loudspeaker test
Leveraging the powerful new electro-acoustic test software for APx, the Production Engineering Testing UK team has designed an extensive, automated software package for the state-of-the-art APx Series – a move that will raise TURBOSOUND’s already impressive testing standards to an unprecedented level.
MUSIC Group founder and CEO Uli Behringer had the following to say, "We have invested in a $4 million dollar (USD) state-of-the art building in Manchester to house our high-tech research and development center, where the staff has grown from 8 to over 70 in less than three years, and we are continuing to recruit in an effort to create the very best products in the pro audio world.”
“We are very excited to continue working with the MUSIC Group,” says AP President David Schmoldt. “They have achieved remarkable success in pro audio, and we are proud to be a part of that story. AP is expanding the definition of audio test to cover all aspects of the signal chain using a single platform from analog through digital and electro-acoustics, and the work done at TURBOSOUND exemplifies this converged approach."
